Guide to Playing at South African Slots
Slot Games are relatively simple to understand and play, although each game has it’s own set of rules, bets and bonuses. The basic operation of a slot game is as follows: Once a player places a bet, the reels (Usually 3 or 5 reels) are spun, and winning lines of matched symbols are paid out according to the slot’s paytable. Some slots make use of a ‘wild’ symbol which can stand for any symbol in order to complete a payline.
Online casino slots can be broken down into two categories as follows:
Non-Progressive Slots are slots that have a fixed jackpot that does not accumulate over time. The chances of winning the jackpot are higher than on a progressive jackpot slot game, but these types of games are becoming less popular across the industry, as the amounts won with progressive jackpot slots are so large.
Progressive Slots are slots that have a jackpot that is linked together in a group. Every time a player gambles at a machine in the group, the jackpot increases and the prize accumulates. The accumulated jackpot then can be won by any player that plays any machine in the group. Progressive slots have become massively popular in recent years, due to the large jackpots that can potentially be won.
Slots are a game of chance, and therefore it is very difficult to formulate a perfect strategy for winning. There are, however, a few steps that one can take to prolong your fun and minimise your losses.
Prolong your game: If you are looking to spend the maximum amount of time possible playing the slot games without gambling away all of your credits in the first few minutes, find a slot game that allows you to bet small amounts.
Play Maximum Coins: Alternatively, if it is the big jackpot you are after, you will have to bet the maximum number of coins. There is nothing more frustrating than lining up the required reels on a progressive jackpot machine and then realising that you are not entitled to the big win because you didn't feed the game with the maximum number of coins.
