Okay, we must admit that there's not a lot to be misinterpreted when it comes to playing in the slot game, but there are certain terms that are worthwhile knowing, in order for you to take full advantage of what they have to offer. We don't want your attention to get "scattered" to the winds, but we simply have to explain what the "scatter" symbol is.
These are very useful things for you, because they can help you get to a bonus phase of some kind. The rules are different as far as each slot is concerned, but a scatter symbol is something that can appear anywhere on the reels of a slot game and create a "combination" of sorts that will help you get somewhere else. None of it has to be on a pay line; that is to say, none of it has to be along any line that you have designated when you made your initial bet. They just have to appear SOMEWHERE.
You will go to a bonus game of sorts, generally speaking, when you get three scatters anywhere on the screen. Much of the time it involves getting free spins against the house. Certainly this can vary, according to the game that you are playing. But suffice it to say that only good things can happen when you see scatters.
If you look on the pay table (and sometimes you have to go to the second page of it), you can see exactly what the scatter symbols are, so that you aren't confused when you see them popping up on the screen and taking you to another phase. Usually, the more scatters that appear on the reels, the better the potential bonuses going to be. For example, you may get five free spins if you have three scatters on the screen. With four scatters, you might get 10 free spins, and with five (one appearing on each real) you may get 15 or more free spins. So scatters are definitely your friend.
As we mentioned, the relationship between scatters and the rewards they bear can vary. Some slot games don't offer a free spins mode, so if you get the requisite amount of scatters, you may be taken right to a certain bonus game where you've got to play in order to determine the size of the prize you will win.
This then becomes a factor when you are shopping around for slots game to play in.
