Slots - Sound Like a Pro: Part 3

We found some slots terms that you might not be all that familiar with, and whether or not you can actually use some of this, we though it might be nice to have it in your "back pocket," so to speak.

One of these involves something called a "multiplier," which we're sure you have heard before. The multiplier on a slot machine is something that simply multiplies your slot winnings. So if you hit a payout, it will act as a trigger of sorts, like a wild, in order to multiply the value of that payout. So if there was going to be a certain payout for hitting, say,. three symbols on any given line, you could actually get just two of those symbols, along with the multiplier, and you would get paid double what the regular payout would be. So very easily a payout of 200 coins could become 400.

Bonus multipliers are even better, in a sense, because they multiply your payout even more. Of course, it is mandatory for these games that you bet the maximum number of coins, but if you hit, it proves to be well worth the risk. A 1000-coin payout can easily become 6,000 coins if there is a max bet along with a 2x multiplier. So this is a good thing.

A "multi-line" slot is obviously the most common kind of slot game there is, because it involves more than one payline on a game. These days the "classic" slots are likely to be the only ones with just a single payline, so everything else is a multi-line slot. You will then have the opportunity to activate as many paylines as you want in the process of placing your bet. And when you do that, the lines you have enabled are, naturally, known as "active paylines."

What you like to do is get on a slot that has an attractive "hit frequency." As you might guess, this is an expression of how often the customer (you) can expect that you are going to hit a winning payline in a slot game. The higher the hit frequency, the better you are likely to do.

If you are in a land-based casino, you might encounter something called a "signature slot," which is a slot games whose brand is owned and/or controlled by that casino. They would probably like for you to play these games more often, and because of this, you are likely to find that they are a bit "looser" than other comparable slots. So good luck with that!
