How to Play Slot Machines in a Casino

Slot machines, also known as one-armed bandits, are casino games where players place bets with coins to spin the reels of the game.

Each slot machine has at least 3 reels, which players can set spinning by pulling a lever or button. The symbols on the reels will spin until the reels stop again. When this happens, the player will receive a win based on the combination of symbols displayed on the payline.

How to Play Slots

Due to the popularity of slot machines in the gambling world, they can now be found in a no wagering casino in Canada or in all traditional casinos. Since the online world is freer in terms of technology and development, players will naturally find a wider range of slot machines there. Here’s how to play slots in both types of casinos.

Traditional Slot Machines

Once the coin is inserted into the slot, the player pulls down the lever that sets the reels spinning. The symbols on these reels usually consist of fruits, complemented by bells, sevens and occasionally symbols that show the word BAR once, twice or three times.

When the reels stop spinning, the player receives a payout if he has hit a winning combination on the game’s payline. Players can find all the combinations for which they receive a payout in the game’s paytable. This paytable is located above the reels. It shows the different combinations and the corresponding winnings.

Online Slot Machines

Players who want to play this type of game in an online casino have to follow a slightly different gaming procedure. In an online slot, the player first selects the game, then his bet. When choosing the bet on an online slot, the player follows 3 steps, regardless of whether it is a traditional or a video slot with multiple paylines.

First, the player chooses the number of lines he wants to activate and bet on. Secondly, he chooses the desired coin value that he wants to bet and for which he will receive winnings. Lastly, the player chooses the number of coins he wants to bet on each activated line. All of this adds up to the amount that the player bets. This total amount is displayed to the player in the betting field.

After the player has placed his bet, he can start the game by clicking start. This button is usually located below the reels in the control panel between or next to the betting options mentioned above.

The symbols will spin and after they stop again, the player gets paid according to the paytable, his bet and the winning combination.

Basic Slot Machine Rules

The rules vary from game to game. That is why the rules of each machine are printed on the slot itself. For online slot machines, players can view the rules by clicking on Game Rules. Here are some of the most basic rules in slots:

Wild Symbols

These wild symbols differ a lot. Wild symbols can substitute for any other symbol that the slot machine uses. However, these wild symbols cannot substitute for any other bonus or scatter symbols.

Scatter Symbols

Scatter symbols are special symbols that generously reward players in the form of scatter payouts, in addition to often activating free spins. A free spin means that players get an additional game for free. Free spins are usually activated by 3 scatter symbols on the reels.

Jackpot Activation

The jackpot is activated when players get a certain symbol combination in a payline of the game. You can find this combination in the paytable.
