สล็อต would be easy to play even for a beginner. But it would be helpful if you have the knowledge of the following terms before playing slots.
Pay line – In a slot machine game, you will win the payout only when you guess the right set of characters that will show up at the end of the spin on a specific part of the reels. If there are only the reels on the machine, you could not spot that particular area as every reel would be a spherical flat piece rotating with some symbols on them. So, there is a necessity for something to indicate that spot of the winning combination. Also, the indicator should show one character from the reach reel as the winning combination. If you want to do so, you have to place a horizontal line that will lie over the reels crossing one character from each reel. You can consider all those characters lying below this line as the winning combination. There will be such a line in all the slot machines and it is known as the pay line. As it is helping you to get the payout, it has got its name. However, you could find a difference in the number of pay lines employed in the slot machines. For instance, a reel slot will contain only one pay line, where a video slot will contain nine or more pay lines. If there are more pay lines, you should select one as the active pay line before you start the spin of the reels.
Jackpot – Let us assume that you are playing a progressive slot game. Once you get the right combination, you will get a payout. However, the payout in a progressive slot will be known as the Jackpot. You can find a difference between the Jackpot and an ordinary payout. The former will be larger in size. It is due to the gradual increase in the winning amount when every player makes his bet in the casino. A small part of these bet amounts will go to the progressive Jackpot making it bigger with time. So, until a person grabs the Jackpot, it will be increasing gradually. You could not grab the Jackpot easily as the size is higher.
243 ways – In the 243 ways variation of the slot machine game, the player will get the payout even when the guessed characters end up in the adjacent spaces of the reels instead of laying in a straight row.
Return to Player – Let us assume that the RTP of a slot machine is 96 percent and you continue playing in that slot machine until you spend $100 as a whole in the form of wagered amounts. So, you would have won $96 as a whole in all the games combined. You can conclude from this example that the return to player percentage is the amount of the wagered amount that will find its way back to the player if he continues playing in the casino for the long term.
