How To Play Online Slots At Spin CasinoOnline Casino, Entertainment, Technology
Slots have been around since 1891 and, with the introduction of the first online casino in 1994, they’ve proven to be as popular today as when the first slot machine was invented. While some machanisms may have changed over the years, playing slots at an online casino is entertaining for all fans of casino games, with a variety of different ones to choose from. In this blog article, we’ll take a look at the variations of slots that can be found at Spin Casino, some of the symbols and bonus features to look out for when playing, as well as the software providers behind some of the biggest online slot games around.
Different Types Of Slots
There are two main types of online slots, the first being the 3-reel classic slot machine. Old-school players will be familiar with these slots as they also come with classic symbols like bars, cherries and sevens. Playing 3-reel slots may not be as exciting as more modern slots, but some players still prefer the non-complicated, nostalgic experience. Video slots became popular with the rise of the online casino, and these slots usually offer various themes and are playable on 5 reels, sometimes even more. Understanding the rules and how to play video online slots may be a bit daunting, so we’ll leave the simplistic 3-reel slots behind a bit and focus on what to expect when playing video slots.
Symbols And Bonus Features
As mentioned previously, online slot games are available in various themes, which include Ancient Egypt, action/adventure, romance, fantasy and more. There are also slots based on blockbuster movies and popular TV series available. No matter which theme of slot you choose to play, there are certain symbols to look out for in each of these that could trigger some exciting in-game bonus features. While the symbols in each slot may be different to suit the theme, the same concepts will apply.
To get started, let’s explain symbols. A symbol is any image that is used to create a winning combination. The most popular of these symbols is the Wild: in most instances the Wild symbol will take the place of other symbols to complete possible winning combinations, a substitute symbol if you will. The other important symbol is the Scatter and, in most cases, you’ll need at least 3 to land anywhere on the reels to trigger a Free Spins and a bonus round. During this feature, you’ll receive a set amount of spins which will run continuously, at no extra cost to you. Speaking of features, most online slots offer Autoplay, which means that you can let the reels spins automatically for a set number of spins.
Two important aspects to know when playing online slots are reels and paylines. Reels are the vertical lines on which the symbols land. Most 3-reel slots will have, as the name implies, 3 reels, while video slots will have 5 reels. Over the last few years, however, video slots have been modernised in such a way that some slots are designed with no paylines at all, and rather work on a ways-to-win mechanic. This means that payouts occur for symbols landing directly next to each other on the reels, from left to right. The number of ways will differ with each slot, but players can also look out for games with a Megaways™ feature, which means that the ways-to-win will differ with each spin.
All the slots at Spin Online Casino have an in-game menu, known as a paytable, which can be launched to reveal the symbols, payouts, special features and basic play of each game, so it’s best to go through this menu before starting to play the chosen online slot.
Now that we are more familiar on the jargon of online slots, it’s good to know the basics of how to play a slot. A good start is to choose your preferred online slot and open it on desktop or your mobile device. The reels of the slot will appear together with the relevant buttons, such as spin and bet settings. The current bet and available balance will also appear on the right or the bottom of the screen. Simply click on the spin button to spin the reels. Any winnings will be added to your current balance and you can continue spinning, but remember to stay within your budget and play responsibly, so always keep an eye on your bankroll.
Most online casinos make use of different software providers for their casino games, to keep the content fresh and exciting. Spin Casino, however, has one top provider, namely Microgaming, which has been one of the leading software providers since 1994 and is known for creating slots with state-of-the-art graphics within different themes. Over the last few years, Microgaming has teamed up with a number of providers to create even more exciting themed online slots for Spin Casino. Some of these include Stormcraft Studios, All41 Studios, Slingshot Studios and more. Players will also find games from NetEnt and Evolution (live casino games) available at Spin Casino.
