Slots - Sound Like a Pro: Part 1

Slots is a relatively simple game, but if you don't understand any given term that is associated with it, you might miss something. That's actually true, and we don't want that to happen to you. So we thought we might help fill in the blanks for you, just in case there was some of the lexicon you weren't aware of.

For example, do you know what a "Bet Max" is? Well, you should, because it is something of a short cut, because it is a button you will click that will take you directly to placing a maximum bet on that particular spin. "Max" obviously denotes a maximum bet, and those are the kind of bets that will yield the biggest amounts when it is time for a payout. Don't go the "Bet Max" route unless you have sufficient bankroll to support it.

Part of the whole makeup of the bet, whether it was the maximum or the minimum, is the "Coin Size." When you hear that you must consider that there are a host of different coin denominations that can serve as the basis for your bet. This can be as low as a penny or as high as five dollars, or even higher than that. What constitutes your bet in the end? Well, it's the coin size, times the number of coins you are playing, and the number of paylines you are enabling. And if the coin sizes start at a penny, the game is said to be of a penny "denomination."

What about "bonus features"? You hear a lot about this when a casino is touting one of its slot games. And it is connected to that which offers the customer a way to win "extra" money. These can include wild symbols (which may include exploding wilds that might take up entire reels) and also free spins games, in which you have the chance to earn payouts without any risk.

A "random jackpot" is one that gets a lot of people excited, because it is a jackpot that does not get paid as a result of the player hitting a designated winning combination and accrues over time. Rather, it is awarded, well, at random, which means that no one has to do anything superhuman to win it; they just have to be in the right place at the right time. Not all casinos will have this, because not all software companies have designed their machines that way.

Another term that doesn't really need to be explained is that slot games are often known as "one-armed bandits." In the online atmosphere that doesn't really apply, because you are clicking a button instead of pulling a lever. But the idea is the same - be careful that you don't get robbed - haha!
