Slots

Many argue that the most classic of casino games is the slot machine, and with good reason. The slots are believed to rake in more than 70% of most casino's revenue. In traditional casinos, these machines allow players to insert money, then spin the reels to try to earn more. If the symbols on the reels line up in a winning fashion, the player is awarded a payout equal to the value of that combination. Online play has opened the options up further, allowing for a wide range of colorful (and exciting) slot machine styles, each with its own unique character, combinations, and aesthetic.

So, what do you need to know to play the slots? Essentially, nothing. Slots are one of a variety of casino games that don't require any unique gambling knowledge and are accessible to perhaps the broadest audience. You might still want to familiarize yourself with some of the inner workings of slots, though, and the terminology associated with the game, so we'll cover a few basics.

Though they come from mechanical roots, most slots in casinos nowadays are computer controlled. As you might suspect, this also applies to online slot play, where every facet of the game is generated by computer algorithms. To play, you simply spin the reels. If the a winning combination shows up on your pay line, you earn a payout. Now, this is where it gets more interesting.

Most slot machines have either 3 or five reels. By increasing your bet, many machines will allow you to increase your payline (the area where you can make a winning combination). Though a basic bet would require you to hit a combination straight down the middle, advanced bets can cause the payline to take various shapes, increasing the likelihood that you'll win.

Though the odds of a slot machine are computer controlled, there is still some variance between how often and how much they pay out. Some slots will offer more regular wins with smaller payouts. Others will offer infrequent wins with larger amounts. After getting a feel for a certain game, you might be able to gauge which kind of machine you're working with.

Lastly, before playing a slot game, you'll want to examine the pay table. This is a chart that lists how much you will win for different combinations. Many slot machines have "wild symbols" that function much like the joker does in cards. They are a substitute for other symbols, and can count toward your winning combination in some cases.

Remember that although the casino does retain an advantage when you play slots, if you play responsibly, there still a blast, and you've got the added bonus of potentially getting lucky and earning a bit of cash.
