What is a slot?

A slot game is a slot machine game. In casinos, you will see these slot machines arranged in a range. However, on slot machines there are usually 3 rows (horizontal or vertical) or more with many different symbols on each row, depending on the theme of the game.

How many slot games are there?

Slot games are rich and diverse. Just change the theme (images, sounds…) and there will be a new slot. There are many topics such as football, pirates, fruits, Egypt etc. So on online casinos you can find hundreds of slot games with different themes.
Although there are many slot games, their basic gameplay is the same. Only that each game can add a few small features to make players feel new and more attractive.

How to play basic slot games

All slots have the same rules, very simple as follows: bet, spin and get rewarded if you win winning combinations.
It’s important to remember: a payline only rewards you if and only if you have a bet on it. For example, if you only bet on 10 of the 25 paylines, and the winning combination falls on the line, you don’t bet, you don’t get anything out of it.

Specifically, how to play a slot game is as follows:

  • Bets: some slots let you choose the paylines, some just need you to choose the total bet and will divide evenly into all paylines, you cannot choose.
  • Press the Spin button.
  • The reels on the slot machine screen will spin randomly.
  • You win if you output the same symbols (usually 3 or more) on a payline of your choice.
  • Get a bonus (if you win) and start a new game.

Common buttons in Slots:

  • Spin: press this button to start the reels.
  • Total Bet: The total amount of bets you place on that spin.
  • Auto Play: use the auto play feature. You will choose the number of spins and the machine keeps spinning instead of you playing one game at a time.

Some Slot Experience

  • Maximum bet when playing Jackpot Slots: If you play slots with Jackpot or Progressive Jackpot, you need Bet Max if you want to qualify for the Jackpot and have a chance of winning big.
  • Always bet low but place a lot of lines: Slot is a game of chance where the best way to increase your chances of winning is to activate more paylines. Therefore, you should bet low but spread the bet in many rows to increase the probability of winning.
  • Learn about special features: Every slot machine or casino has different prizes and rules. So before you start, take the time to get to know what lies ahead of you and avoid missing out on rewards or other opportunities.
  • Know where to stop: with a slot game or any gambling, the key experience to survival is to control yourself. Specifically, you need to set the winning milestone, betting target, loss limit … during the day. When you win that or lose that amount, you have to rest. Absolutely do not let yourself play constantly without limits, regardless of losing or winning.
