Below, our experts will tell you all you need to know about slots.
Introducing Online Slots at Betiton
When you enter an online casino, no matter which it is, you will usually find that they have a lot more slot games than any other casino games such as such as the extremely entertaining online blackjack or the various online roulette games. Betiton is no exception to this rule – this does not mean that we do not have plenty of table games for you to play, but we will discuss this a bit later on.
We always want our slot fans to have the best slot game experience possible whenever you sign in to play, which is why we have made it a priority to team up with the best software developers that the world has to offer. When you play at Betiton you will be playing slots that have been developed by the likes of Microgaming, NetEnt, Elk Studios, and Yggdrasil Gaming. Not only do these software creators develop entertaining slots, but they also release a number of new slots each year, meaning that we will always have some new slots to offer you, ensuring that you will never get bored.
Additionally, one more thing that will prevent boredom from raising its ugly head is the fact that we offer slot games with a variety of different themes. For instance, if you are a fan on Egyptian slots, then we have plenty to keep you entertained. The same can be said if you are into your movie or mystery-themed slot games. Whatever theme you are partial to, it is safe to say that we have got you covered. When you play with us you will be able to play a variety of five-reel, three-reel, multi-payline, and progressive jackpot slots.

How Do Online Slot Games Work?
- Random Number Generator
When compared with other kinds of casino games, slots are relatively straightforward. Slot games have rows and reels that give them a grid setup – simple slot games have a 3×3 format, while the more exciting and complex ones have a 5×5 format. On the reels you will come across various symbols, which will be a combination of low-paying ones and high-paying one. The actual type of symbols you will encounter will depend on the slot that you are playing and the theme that it has. When you are playing a slot game, you should remember to keep a lookout for the wild symbol as this is a symbol that can take the place of all other symbols (accept the bonus ones), which can help to improve your odds. You should also keep an eye out for the scatter symbol as this is the symbol that you need to land (usually three on any of the reels) to activate the bonus features of the slot game.
Unlike games like baccarat, slots have a number of paylines. When you are playing a slot, your main aim is to get at least three identical symbols to line up on an active payline. Usually you will need this to occur from the left of your screen to your right, but there are also a number of slot games out there which will allow you to win from right to left too – this is known as being able to win both ways. Classic slots will usually have a solitary payline right in the middle, but newer slots can have thousands. However, more often than not, you will find that a new slot game has 20-25 paylines. Some slot games will have fixed paylines, meaning that all paylines will be active at all times. Other slot games will come with variable paylines, meaning that you can switch the paylines on and off at will.
All the games that you will find here at Betiton make use of random number generator software (RNG), which is software that ensures that everything is completely fair. This constantly generates thousands of numbers each second and these numbers will give different outcomes whenever you push the spin button. As is indicated in the name, it is completely random so the outcome of your last spin will not have any type of influence on the outcome of your next spin.
How to Play Online Slot Games
Online gamblers love slot machines as they are quick and easy to get to terms with, just like our vast selection of online scratch cards. If you have never played a slot game before, simply follow the steps that we have outlined below for you, and we are certain that you will have no issues at all.
- Click on the slot that you want to play, and it will open within seconds. The reels will fill up the screen of the device that you are using, and you will see important buttons such as “spin” and “max bet”. Your bankroll will usually be visible in the corner
- Take a look at the paytable as this will provide you with all the information that you need such as how much each symbol is worth and what the scatter and wild symbols are. It will also give you information about what the bonus features are
- Decide how much you want to stake per spin and decide how many paylines you want to be in action (if they are variable). If you want to make use of all the paylines, then a quick way to do so is to click the “max bet” option
- Click on “spin” and the reels will start spinning. If you happen to win, the amount that you have won will be displayed on the screen. You will often be given the option of gambling your winnings once again
- You can keep spinning as long as you feel like, but please remember to stick to a budget so that you do not potentially lose more than you can afford to
See, as we said above, they are easy to play.
How to Select an Online Slot
There are thousands of slot games out there so it can be difficult to find the best slots to play. While most slots have the same basic characteristics, they differ in a number of ways. Below, we have given you the main points to consider when you are searching for a slot game to play.
A major distinction between slots is the theme they have. The theme is what dictates the graphics, reels, icons, and bonus features. Different themes will obviously give a different complexion to your slot playing experience. For instance, let us compare an ancient Egyptian slot and an Alice in Wonderland one. The graphics, sound effects, and bonuses will all be different and be in accordance with the theme of the slot game. This knowledge can be used to help you when you are choosing an online slot game to play. For instance, by selecting a slot with a theme that is appealing to you and ignoring those with themes you have no interest in, you will have a much easier time choosing a slot to play. However, we recommend that you do not stick to just the one theme because if you do this you will end up missing out on some great slots.
Another thing that you need to consider when you are deciding on a slot to play is the software developer that created it. No two software developers are the same, meaning that their slots can vary drastically. For instance, Yggdrasil Gaming, one of the best software developers in the industry, are well known for mixing stunning graphics with excellent bonus features. On the other hand, Microgaming and NetEnt, on the other hand, are well known for developing solid and reliable slots that are not as theatrical as ones developed by Yggdrasil Gaming. We highly recommend that you try out different software developers so that you can get a solid idea as to the pros and cons of each one. Then, after you have found two or three software developers that you like, you can search specifically for their slots when you are looking for something to play.
The majority of modern slots come with plenty of bonus features like multipliers, extra spins, cascading reels, and expanding wilds. These features are tied to big prizes, so it is certainly wise to select your games carefully. Some bonus features will be more lucrative than others, but there is actually no simple way to find out which are the lucrative ones without playing the games yourself. However, you can have a look at the features that are available and then read some online reviews about any slot that is interesting you, and if you like what you read then you can give it a shot.
The Return to Player, commonly shortened to just RTP, is something that gives an indication of the payout rate of a slot game. It is something that gives you a good idea as to what the house edge of a certain game is. The RTP figure is calculated over a long time-frame and just means that the casino is guaranteed a percentage of the slot game’s earnings over a specific time frame. This is the case with all games you find at a casino. The RTP is a critical factor that you need to consider when you are choosing a game to play.
