Here is an overview of four types of slots machines and what they have to offer:
The most widely known and available slot games are called classic slots. They resemble the traditional one-armed bandit style machines which feature a pull down arm to activate the turn. When you spin a specific series of symbols on the reel then you win a prize. These are the simplest machines with 3 reels to play and limited paylines. Many machines allow for multiple chances of a win during each spin. This is done by choosing how many reels or paylines to place a bet on during the spin.
A modern take on the classic slot machine, video slots feature an increased number of reels. It is essentially a computerized game without moving parts. They usually offer more opportunities because of the 5 reels. The options range from 1 to 100 paylines to win. The video graphics are more advanced then classic slots. Many of the video slots feature characters from popular movies. They even follow story lines throughout the off scenes or after hitting a win.
These slot machines increase the value of the pot, or payout, every time it is played without a win. They increase a predetermined amount each time a round is played and are commonly networked between multiple machines to make this increase appear bigger. The jackpot can get up in the millions before somebody wins. Since these jackpots get so high requiring a lot of losing, or smaller win plays, before the jackpot is hit, they commonly require a maximum play to qualify for the jackpot. Once the jackpot is won, all linked machines reset to the minimum programmed value.
The new generation of slot machines featuring amazing 3D graphics and improved sound effects. The breathtaking graphics are coupled with the all new three dimensional storyline. Some mobile devices take the graphics a step further with a 3D button. When activated, the graphics become even more realistic.
With all the slot machines available online and in person, it is important to figure out what type you will most enjoy. Whether you are looking for the classic feel of the one arm bandit or the newest 3D graphics and sound, there is something for everyone in the slot machine industry. Deciding how many paylines should be the hardest decision you make.
