What are Slots?
How to Play Slot Machines
Types of Slot Machines
Single CoinSingle-coin slot machines are the most basic type of slots. You put in a coin or use a player’s card that deducts a standard fee for each play. The cost does not vary. You pay one cost per play, and you can win any of the jackpots.
Multiple CoinMultiple-coin slot machines, sometimes called multipliers, allow you to put in more coins to increase your bet. For example, if you put in one coin, you may be able to win up to two times what you paid. But if you put in two coins, you may be able to win up to four times what you paid. The costs and payouts vary by machine, so always check the pay table on the machine before deciding what you want to play.
Buy Your PlayBuy-your-pay machines, sometimes called buy-a-pay or option-buy machines, are similar to multipliers. However, instead of a simple increase of your payout, these machines actually open up more winning combinations the more coins you pay. So, if you insert one coin, the machine might not pay out if you hit a certain combination. However, if you insert five coins, it might pay, and it might pay big.
Be sure to always read the pay tables on these machines before you play so that you are not surprised. You don’t want to miss out on a huge win because you didn’t insert enough coins!
Multiple PaylineMany slot machines calculate the winning combination based on what symbols land on a single line. However, multiple payline slot machines will pay out for winning combinations on multiple lines. As always, check the machine to see where these lines are and what combinations will win.
Wild PayOn a wild pay slot machine, you’ll find certain symbols that act as wild cards. These make it possible for you to get a winning combination and win big jackpots. Many wild play slot machines also give you a bonus if you win with the wild card symbol.
Progressive JackpotA progressive jackpot slot machine is usually linked to a group of other machines. Every time a person plays on one of these machines, it increases the communal jackpot. These jackpots can get quite large, giving you the opportunity to win a substantial amount of money with a small buy in.
Video Slot MachinesVideo slot machines mimic traditional slot machines in every way, except the action is simulated on a computer screen. You’ll be looking at graphics instead of actual spinning reels, but the game play will be the same — as will the payouts. You can find video slot machines in all the same types as traditional slot machines, including multipliers, multiple paylines, wild plays, and progressive jackpots. Video slot machines also have fun graphics and animations, which can make the game play more exciting for many people.
Strategies for Playing Slot Machines
To start, it is important that you always read the information on the machine so that you know what the bets are, the winning combinations, and the possible payouts. Then you can make an informed choice about what you want to bet and how you want to play.
Keep in mind that some machines have a better payout than others. For example, most progressives machines pay out better than regular slot machines, not in terms of the amount they pay, but in terms of the frequency. So, you may not win the progressive jackpot, but you may win smaller payouts more frequently, which could make these machines worth it for you.
Although it is possible to use your credit cards to play, you should try to avoid doing so. Anything you take out on a credit card will come with a steep interest rate. If you lose money, you don’t just lose what you spent — you lose that money plus interest.
Slot Machine Etiquette
To start, you should only sit at a slot machine if you intend on playing it. Otherwise, you are taking up a space that an active player could take. If you just want to watch play, stand to the side and watch the other players. Don’t lurk at a machine.
There may be times when you are playing a slot machine and want to take a break, such as to go to the restroom, but you don’t want to lose the machine. In that case, you may be able to save a machine. Just keep in mind that this is temporary, and you may not be able to do it if the casino is especially busy.
You can play multiple machines at once, but be mindful of others if the casino starts to get busy. Stick to one machine at a time if you notice crowds starting to form.
Finally, don’t be a sore loser. You may find yourself down on your luck occasionally. Don’t make a big scene. Just remember that you’re there to have fun, and you may have better luck next time.
Slot Machine Safety
When you are playing the slots, keep a few safety tips in mind. Always guard your bankroll and your winnings. Keep them close, and check in on them regularly. Also keep any personal items in sight and close to you.
If you win big, ask for a security guard to escort you to your vehicle.
