If you have never played a slot machine you will probably be a bit perplexed upon first sight at one. There are many different types of slots that will have different rules and options. You need to be aware of these rules especially how the machine pays out. Jumping right into a slot without understanding how they work is a sure fire way to lose.

This article will help you understand everything there is to know about slot machines. By the end you will be quite the expert at slots and can play them with confidence.

The most important part of slots that you must know is how they pay out. Slot machines will hit a win many different ways. Before putting any money into a slot, make sure to read the sign that explains how they pay out. In a live casino this is can usually be found at the top or next to the slot. It will display exactly how to win and how much each combination pays out.

When playing online, you can click on the rules button or sometimes a payout button. If you can’t find this information for whatever reason, contact support and they will gladly help you out.

Next, you need to know what the symbols mean. Most slot machines have wild or scatter symbols that will act as bonus round triggers, free spins and more. This information can also be found on the slot machine or by asking a customer support agent for assistance.

One of the most overlooked parts of slot machines are the pay lines. The pay lines are the ways you can win on a slot. The old time slots had maybe 3 straight lines that went from left to right and this would dictate if you won or lost. Today’s modern slot machines can have up to 100 pay lines or more that go diagonal, zigzag, backwards etc.



It can be quite confusing if you do not know how these lines go. You are often left hoping the machine gets it right and never questioning a win or loss. If you familiarize yourself with the pay lines before playing you will save yourself a lot of headaches.

Lastly, you need to know the controls that operate a slot. This applies mainly to online slots, but can also translate to live play as well. Most slots let you choose how much you want to play for, how many pay lines and more. You need to know how to change these settings in order to have a pleasurable and hopefully profitable experience.

This is very easy to do for the most part as you will find all the instructions once you load the game. Again, if you cannot find the controls, contact support to help you out.
By now you should be a pro at slots and itching to play. The major theme behind all this is to ask if you are ever in doubt. Never play a game without knowing how it works.
