Slot Machine Glossary

The following guide explain some of the more common slot machine terms used at an online casino

Feature Game
A combination of certain symbols that trigger a second or third feature game. This will often take the player into a second screen and offer high cash prizes. Common feature games include a scratchcard style game, pick 3 images from 6 or a race

Free Games
Some feature games simply offer a series of free spins for the player. This can often be up too 30 free spins. In some online slots, any wins gained during this period are multiplied.

Slot Machines can offer a re-spin symbol. If this appears, the slot goes through a 're-spin' offering the player a second chance of winning

Bonus or Trigger Symbols
Bonus symbols often act as a trigger to take the player into second screen feature games.

Substitute or Wild Symbol
Substitutes or Wilds can substitute for any other symbol appearing in the game

Some symbols - often Wild Symbols - will have a multiplier attached and the payout win will multiply according the the amount specified. For Example; a x3 multiplier will multiply the cash win by 3

Scatter Symbol
A scatter symbol will pay anywhere irrespective of paylines. They can appear anywhere on a payline or in the slot window to win

Pay Direction:
Pays Left-to Right; Pays Right-to-Left; Pays Both; Pays Any

These are terms to tell the player in which direction the payline will will payout. For example, in a standard slot machine, the winning payline will payout starting from the Left. Each symbol must appear in sequence in order to win. For example, 3 fish symbols - in order to win - should appear sequentially on reel 1, reel 2 and reel 3 to win on a left-to-right pay direction. However, some lots now offer right-to-left payout wins, or even both l-to-r and r-to-l. Pays Any often refers to a scatter symbol in which the symbol does not have to appear sequentially in a payline or sometimes can appear anywhere in the window for a win

Max Bet
The maximum stake and line bet available on the slot game

Payout Table
The graphical table that shows the player the different symbol sequences required for a payline win

Double-Up or Gamble
Offering the player the ability to double-up any win. Usually a 50:50 chance
