Please see below questions and answers, covering topics related to Casino Games and it's variations. Wether you have questions on playing online slots, Blackjack or free spins, we tried to cover them all.
What are online slots?
Online slots are virtual slot machines that award payouts according to a unique paytable. While classic slots usually consist of 3 reels, video and online slots can feature anything from 5 to 7 reels, or more.
Paylines also differ exponentially depending on the slot game, with between 1 and 40 paylines typically present. Some online slots don’t even use a traditional payline structure, but a Ways to Win mechanic instead.
Besides the online slot types mentioned above, you also get jackpot slots. These games still award regular payouts, but also have a growing jackpot prize pool that’s up for grabs. Potential jackpot wins require the right symbol combinations to trigger.
How do I play online slots?
To play online slots, all you must do is pick a game from the For You, Slots or Jackpots tab once you’re logged into your Spin Casino account. If you’re playing on desktop, you’ll have two options: DEMO mode or real money PLAY mode. Demo mode uses demo (not real) credits, while regular play mode uses your cash and bonus balance.
Before placing any bets, we suggest viewing the table and adjusting both your bet size and coin size. From there, it’s as simple as having fun!
Top tip: Understanding basic slots jargon is highly recommended. You can use your web browser to search up some common terms.
How do paylines work?
Paylines are “invisible” lines that determine whether a payout is awarded following the outcome of a spin. Because payline positions vary per slot, we recommend viewing a slots paytable to find out where they’re located. Remember that not all online slots have paylines.
Many modern casino slots feature a Ways to Win mechanic instead. In this case, potential payouts are awarded for adjacent symbols from left to right.
What are Ways to Win slots?
These slots are essentially the same as regular online slots, but feature a Ways to Win mechanic instead of traditional paylines. How it works is that paytable payouts are awarded for 3 or more of a kind that land adjacently from left to right anywhere on the reels.
What are Scatter and Wild symbols?
Scatter symbols usually don’t have to land on a payline in order to pay out, and sometimes only two of these symbols are needed anywhere on the reels. In most instances, three or more Scatter symbols are required to trigger a Free Spins feature within a slot, where applicable. Wild symbols will substitute for other symbols to complete possible winning combinations.
What are bonus games?
Bonus games are in-game features that players can trigger when playing video slots. These may vary from Free Spins to Pick and Click games, where bonus prizes could be allocated at random.
What are Free Spins as a feature in online slots?
Most online slots offer a Free Spins feature as part of their in-game bonus features. These are often triggered with a certain symbol combination that lands on the reels, resulting in a set number of spins being awarded at no extra cost to the player. Should any winnings be awarded, it will be added to the player’s balance once the feature has ended. The Free Spins feature is explained within the payout table of each slot, so players can see how many spins can be triggered with which symbol combination.
What are Free Spins offered as a bonus?
Sometimes online casinos offer Free Spins as an extra bonus to players – these are spins that are allocated to a specific slot for players to enjoy. If a casino offers Free Spins, there should be no deposit required for a player to receive the offer – alternatively, should a player need to make a deposit before or after the spins, the casino will refer to this offer as Bonus Spins.
Are Free Spins really offered as free?
If there is nothing required from the player to receive the spins, then it is referred to as Free Spins. There should be no deposit or anything else needed from the player, before or after the spins, in order to play with a Free Spins bonus. We recommend that players view the terms and conditions before accepting any Free Spins offer.
Are Free Spins legitimate?
Yes, however, most online casinos will give players a bonus in the form of Bonus Spins, where a small deposit is required to receive the spins, or for any winnings from the spins to be awarded. If Free Spins are granted, no deposit should be needed from the player. We recommend that players view the terms and conditions before accepting a Free Spins offer.
What's the difference between coins and credits?
Coins display value denominations, while credits show you what your balance is in currency units. Simply add a currency symbol in front of your credit balance to determine how much that would equate to in your account currency.
For example, 5 credits is equal to $5.
What are online slot tournaments?
These are usually free-entry tournaments that are more social than playing online slots on your own. In online slot tournaments, you’ll be competing against other players to rank on the leaderboard. Players in top positions at the end of the tournament qualify for prizes.
How do I play online slot tournaments?
To enter an online slot tournament, you must have a Spin Casino account. On login, select the Tournaments tab, then navigate to the Starting Soon section. Before joining a tournament, we advise reading the rules.
If you’re happy with the entrance requirements, rules and prizes, simply wait for the tournament to begin and follow the instructions to compete.
Generally, the objective is to accumulate as many features as you can on the slot selected for the tournament. Whoever collects the most features by the time the tournament completes will secure a top position on the leaderboard.
