What is a slot?

How the slot works and how to play it?

To an ordinary player, it is better known as a slot machine. The word “slot” is its short name, borrowed from the English language. In the classical sense, a slot is a multi-reel game.

After the player presses the button, the reels begin to rotate vertically. The player places a bet that three identical symbols will line up on the reels in a horizontal row, for example: 7-7-7. If this happens, the player collects his winnings. If the result is different, the player’s money remains the game’s payment for a chance to win.

If we disassemble the classic slot into components, we get the following list:

  • Symbol – an image on a drum that rotates vertically. Depending on the theme of the slot machine, the symbols can be quite varied. The main goal of the player is to line up the same symbols in one, usually horizontal line.
  • Drum – a set of characters that are vertically wrapped together. Modern slots can have from three to several dozen reels at the same time.
  • Payline – a horizontal or other line where symbols must line up for the player to win. Paylines can be straight, broken, or clustered. They are usually read from left to right, but sometimes they work in two directions. Unusual lines are always indicated in the pay tables of the slot machine.
  • Paytable – a list of possible winnings in the slot, as well as information about the game and its bonus features. It demonstrates to the player the win, which is given by the conditional “7-7-7” or any other combination. Also here you can find out if the game has a jackpot or a win multiplier.

Buttons – mechanisms by which the player controls his game on the machine. The “Start” or “Spin” button starts the movement of the reels. The buttons “Bet”, “Minimum bet” and “Maximum bet” regulate the amount that the player bets on one revolution of the reels. There is also a button “Auto-spin” – it allows the slot to spin the reels at a given rate without the player’s participation.

Wild symbol – an additional symbol that, by its appearance, replaces other symbols on the reel so that it is easier for the player to win. Wild has several variations:

  • Wide Wild – a symbol that covers the whole reel and turns it into a solid Wild.
  • Moving Wild – a symbol that for several spins moves along the reels from one edge of the game to another until it goes beyond its limits.
  • Fixed Wild – a symbol that remains in place for several revolutions of the reels.

Other additional characters:

  • Scatter – launches a bonus round or game. It is activated when three Scatter symbols appear on the reels at the same time. Which bonus game the symbol activates will always be prompted by the paytable.
  • Giant symbol – takes up several rows and reels and makes winning much easier. It rotates separately from the rest, and its key features depend on the developer.

Slot special features

In addition to symbols, many slot machines have special features:

  • Respin – re-rotation of some reels. Respin allows the player to spin the reels that have not been played again in order to collect a winning combination.
  • Free spin – free spin of all reels, usually occurs in the bonus game. If the free spin is victorious, the player takes the winnings. If not, the player loses nothing.

  • Multiplier – multiplies the player’s winnings. The operating conditions of the multiplier and other information about it are always present in the paytable.

Is it possible to try yourself in slots without spending money? Why not. Many slot machines have a demo mode in which a virtual account is created for the player. Typically, the amount provided allows you to try different bets, paylines and bonus rounds. You cannot withdraw your winnings in “Demo” mode – you need to play for real money.
