- All slot machines display the number of credits won based upon the results of the reel spin.
- Options, options, options! Choose from wagering on one-line, two-line, or multiple-line outcomes on the slot reels. You can wager one or more credits. The more you wager, the more you can win!
These machines have a table of payouts for specific combinations of symbols. Multiply the payout by playing more than one credit. So, if the payout is five credits for three Red 7 symbols when you play one credit, it would pay double if you played two credits, and triple if you played three. For some machines, playing the maximum coins will increase the size of the jackpot more than you’d think. For example, a one coin play yields a jackpot of 1,000 credits while a two coin play yields a jackpot double in size (2,000 credits), and a three coin play (the maximum) yields a jackpot of 5,000 credits, which is more than triple in size.
These machines have more than one pay line possible – so you can win on multiple lines! The pay lines are activated depending on how many credits are played.
On these machines, each additional credit activates a different set of payouts according to the prize legend. Play with just one credit and you’ll qualify only for the first set of payouts. With the maximum number of coins played, you’ll qualify for all the possible payouts on the machine. For example, one credit may allow you to win only on the smaller prize payouts while the second credit will allow you to win both the mid-sized and smaller prizes. The third credit qualifies you to win the top, mid-sized and smaller payouts.
These slot machines have a jackpot pool that continues to grow with each credit played. The progressive jackpot amount, displayed on the meter, continues to climb until someone wins. Someone could win a small jackpot prize early on but the prize grows very large if no one wins for a longer period of time.
On all progressive slots, you must play the maximum number of credits to qualify to win the progressive jackpot. If the winning jackpot combination appears and you are not playing the maximum number of credits, you’ll win a fixed jackpot amount corresponding to the number of credits you played according to the pay table – not the progressive prize.
Progressive slots can be stand alone, or single, machines or they can be a group of machines grouped and linked together contributing to a common jackpot pool. There are also wide area progressive slots where several groups of machines in several different locations or casinos all contribute to a large common jackpot pool.
Odds for Slot Machine Games
It’s important to note that slot machines operate randomly at all times, no matter how many wins or losses have occurred in the past, altering play patterns, time of day, or position of the machine within the casino. In other words, the result of your last game has no bearing on the result of your next game.
Odds of winning smaller prizes are much greater than the odds of winning the top prize. But, remember, the outcome is random, every time you play.
