What is a Slot Machine?

Join Pink Casino and Play

A slot machine is commonly known as a fruit machine. These slots enable players to gamble an amount of cash in exchange for online casino gameplay and possible rewards. The standard layout for a slot machine is three or more reels, which spin when either a lever is pulled or a button is pressed, depending on if you are playing online slots or live casino slots.

The classic view of these slot games were made famous by the rows and rows of Vegas slots in various films and travel booklets. Millions flock to Sin City to spin the reels of the famed slot games of Vegas. As technology has become more advanced, gaming providers have been able to take the greatest gaming experience from the casino floor and bring it straight your laptop or mobile in a compact, safe and immersive way.

Slot machines are now typically known as online slots, with some of the biggest and best right here at Pink Casino. Although slot machines are always becoming more advanced with better features, the actual mechanics of each game remains pretty simple. So, we are going to cover everything to do with slot machines and online casino slots, as well as everything you need to know to have a great experience playing them.

How to Play a Slot Machine

The first action to take is to pick your slot machine, Pink Casino has over 400 slots to choose from so to make it easier for you, we will go through some of our favourite ones later in this article. However, once you have chosen the right slot for you, you'll be given the game interface, which will highlight a selection of actions to take and buttons to press.

Buttons

Below is an explanation of the buttons you may see when launching a slot. These are the basics, but each gaming designer is a little different, so this might have an impact on terminology and the positions of the buttons.

Information

This is the first area to look at, once you land on the slot machine have a look at the gaming instructions. This section will give you a detailed view on the symbols, the symbol values, winning combinations and rules. It's better to find out how to play a slot game before you start spinning the reels, as it makes it more interesting. Here at Pink Casino, we provide all of our customers with in-depth game guides that explain how you can get started and what to look out for when spinning.

Wager

This is the part where you can set a stake using either betting lines or sometimes increasing coin value. This usually varies game on game. There will be arrows and a small bet window on most of the slot games that will show you how much you have increased or decreased your stake. Once you are happy with this value you can then head over and begin your game. It is important that you set a stake that you are comfortable with.

Spin

When you are happy with your wager you can then start spinning the reels. The 'spin' button will usually be the biggest button available on the interface. When this button is pressed you can then watch the reels spin and land in a random combination.

Auto

The Auto function is something that allows you to choose certain benchmarks that will spin the reels automatically. This automation means that you don't have to keep pressing the spin button on the mobile slot or on your laptop. You are able to set loss limits, stake, amount of spins and sometimes more. This is a feature that you will see on all online slots although old school slot machines with a lever won't have this feature.

Movie

Movies and films are a big part of popular culture so there is no surprise that this translates to the online slot machines that our players like. Our gaming providers have a fantastic selection of movie themes that they have worked with to bring us some really cool games over the last couple of years. A few to mention are Ted slot from Blueprint Gaming, The Goonies slot and Narcos slot. Some have appeared on the big screen and others as a TV show. Blueprint Gaming are industry leaders who have created multiple movie-themed slots and who are famous for their many in-game bonus features and modifiers.

Arcade

Some of the arcade themed slot machines here at Pink Casino have become very popular and we think this is because of the nostalgia of retro-style classic slot machines. These are usually simplified with less bonus features and have symbols that match the fruit machines, such as cherries, oranges, bar symbols and lucky 7s.

FAQ

What is the Best Online Slot Game?

Starburst slot has been touted as one of the best and most popular slot games available right now.

How do I Win Online Slots?

Slots are created with many symbols, usually three to five with a total number of paylines. As mentioned above, make sure to review the paytable to view all the information needed. Winnings are funded when you land a specific number of symbols in a row on an active payline with most slot machines paying from the leftmost reel to the right.

Different Types of Symbols

Scatter

Scatters can trigger a special feature, however they don't have to appear on a payline. Most slots have the Free Spins feature, so the scatter is one of the most common ways to unlock it. The Free Spins can sometimes have multipliers and other special features attached.

Wild

Wild symbols can replace all others, usually except for scatter symbols. There are many different types of wild symbols too, these include expanding wilds, stacked wilds, cluster wilds and more. Wild symbols are good to look out for when spinning the reels.

Standard

Standard symbols are those that pay out a certain amount given the payline they land on. The standard symbols are split between low and high values with the game theme taking on the more high value symbols. The more symbols you land on a row, the more you are likely to win.

Bonus

Bonus symbols are the most valuable ones in each game. You have to get 3 symbols to trigger a bonus round, sometimes more, depending on the game. Sometimes they must appear on a specific line and others they just need to be present on the reels. When this happens, the main attraction of the game will be triggered, which is called the bonus round.
