Online Slots Rules
My oh my, don't we look ravishing today !
This is my basic guide to slots rules for playing slots online.
Slots are an easy and fun casino game to play, and many of the online casinos have excellent game graphics and a wide variety of slot machines
and progressive slots games to choose from. As for me, I have a weakness for the fruit slots.
To begin playing slots, you must first deposit money into the machine.
You may then normally select which coin denomination you wish to play, and select if you want to "Bet One" or "Bet Max",
which is usually 3 to 5 coins but sometimes is more. Each time you want to spin, you then either
click on "Spin" or the appropriate "Bet" button. When the slot machine reels stop, your
payoff will be determined from a table of winning combinations listed on your screen.
How much you win (if anything) is determined by where the wheels stops.
The goal is to get the symbols (bars, numbers, special symbols, etc.) to line up on the
payline in one of the winning combinations listed on the pay schedule. Each game has
its own pay schedule and special symbols. For example, three cherries in a row may pay 12 to 1.
Some slot machines have up to 9 paylines, or even pay on the diagonal, so be sure to read the
rules for each game you play.
Progressive Jackpot Slot Machines
Certain slot machines are called "Progressive Jackpots". The top payout on a progressive jackpot machine is not according
to a fixed schedule as in regular slot machines. Rather, jackpot values start at a certain level
and grow each time somebody makes a bet (until some lucky player hits the jackpot). Progressive
slots can grow to almost $400,000 online, and therefore are very popular. However, they can
also be quite risky, and you can lose a lot of money trying to hit the big jackpot.
Important note: You normally have to bet the maximum number of coins in order to be eligible for the
jackpot - be sure to read the slots rules in the casino before you start playing.
