Slot machines are unique in the world of games and have a long history. The classic version of a slot is also called a ‘one-armed bandit’: Various symbols are spread over many reels that rotate independently. A winning pattern extends across these reels consisting of individual win lines. The number of win lines can often be determined by the player - and the desired bet per spin can therefore be set.
A game round is also referred to as a ‘spin’, as the reels rotate, after the player has set their bet. A completely new combination of the respective game symbols results from each spin.
The aim of the game is that the same symbols land in succession on one of the win lines - usually from left to right and without interruption. There are, however, exceptions (‘All Pay’ slots do not have any win lines, etc.). You can find more detailed information about the potential wins from games in the relevant help texts, or by clicking on the ‘Paytable’ button in the game.
Joker and Wild symbols/substitutes
Jokers and Wild symbols/substitutes can take the place of other symbols in a winning combination if they are on a win line, and therefore complete them.
Scatter symbols land a win from a certain minimum, regardless of their sequence and win lines. Certain Scatter combinations even trigger bonus or free games.
Bonus and free games or bonus features and feature games
Bonus games or free games allow you to play a certain number of free rounds (spins), where no bet is necessary. Win multipliers that occur only in bonus games, normally provide even better winning odds.
Bonus features or feature games occur in wild variants, but they share two common features with the bonus or free games: You do not have to place a bet and you have special winning possibilities. More specific information about the bonus opportunities in a game can be found in the Help texts of the respective game, or in the game directly under ‘Paytable’.
