HOW TO PLAY ONLINE SLOTS
Almost all slot games have the same base instructions – simply click the spin button and the game does the rest! Slot games do not require any skill or strategy. As wins are down to chance, online slots appeal to all levels of player.
SLOT GAME PAYLINES
To win when you play slots games, you need to match identical symbols in a specific order on the reels. This is called a payline or a win line. Each game will have a different number of paylines. You can see what these are on each in-game help menu. Paylines are often:
- In a row
- In a zig-zag pattern
- In a V shape
The winning symbols for each game vary, and paylines are weighted differently on each spin. When you are playing with real money, your balance will be debited every time you spin the reels. You will also need to decide how much to stake on each payline to make up your total stake.
Some slots do not use paylines and instead pay out based on the number of symbols you land on the reels. With these types of game, you can have over 2,000 ways to win.
WILDS AND SCATTER SYMBOLS
Many slots games include Wild symbols, where a special symbol substitutes for all other symbols, helping you create a winning line. For example, if the Wild symbol is a Lion and you have a payline of Giraffe-Lion-Giraffe, the Lion counts as a Giraffe symbol to create a win.
Scatter symbols can also appear at random, with a variety of outcomes. They do not need to be in a payline to be activated. In Book of Gold: Symbol choice, the scatter symbol triggers both the bonus round and counts as Wild, substituting for all other symbols.
But don’t worry about this too much – all our online slots are fully automated, just click the button to play.
FREE SPINS ON SLOTS
As well as being ultra-simple, people like to play online slots for their special features and bonus rounds. Free spins offer an additional way to win without paying, adding excitement and variety to our games.
HOW FREE SPINS WORK
Free spins can be triggered in many ways. Often, they are achieved by landing a specific set of symbols, but they can also be awarded at random. You can also get free spins by collecting a number of symbols and filling up a ‘free spins meter’ inside the game.
For instance, in Book of Gold: Symbol Choice if 3 book symbols land on the reels, you’ll be taken to the free spins feature, where 1 symbol is selected to expand across the reels for multiplied wins across 10 free spins.
