Enjoy the Best Online Slots at Betiton™

There are many games that can be considered iconic casino games and thus no casino would be complete without them. At Betiton™ online casino in Canada, we have made sure to provide our players with all of the casino essentials.

These games include classic table games, like roulette and blackjack, as well as the incredibly popular slot machine. Thankfully, technology has come a long way and slots are now available as online games.

Other than that, our video slots page should help you out when getting into the game as a beginner. We’ll be providing players with tonnes of useful information on the differences between different types of slots, how to play them, slot terminology, and so on.

How Do You Play Online Slots?

The beauty of slots is that they can be played by anyone. In fact, they don’t require punters to know any rules or combinations, and can simply be played with the click of a button. Despite that, the experience might still be overwhelming for new punters.

The following is a step-by-step tutorial on what you need to know about online slots to begin playing them. We’ll be mentioning some terminology too, all of which will be explained in more detail in the next section. To begin:

  1.  A slot is generally laid out in rows and columns; these columns are known as “reels“.
  2. Naturally, these differ from one slot to another, however the idea remains the same: you have to land matching symbols on the reels.
  3. To get a better idea of the symbols, their payouts, and so on, we highly recommend that you check out the paytable.
  4. The paytable presents all the winning symbols of a slot as well as its special symbols, including scatters and wilds.
  5. Of course, this is all down to luck, and there is no way to guarantee you’ll get matching symbols with every spin. In fact, you might not get any winning combinations for multiple spins.
  6. This sounds frustrating but this is based on a slot’s volatility. A slot’s volatility is its risk factor, that is, how much and how frequently it pays out.
  7. Volatility ranges from low to high. The lower the volatility, the lower the risk, meaning that payouts tend to be regular but quite small.
  8. On the other hand, the higher the volatility, the higher the risk. This means that payouts are infrequent but generally tend to be quite large in comparison.
  9. Due to this risk factor, it’s good to find out what a slot’s volatility is before wagering any money.
  10. Of course, keep in mind that this is only a theoretical assessment of a slot’s risk factor. Your experience of the slot may actually differ greatly from the claimed volatility.
  11. This is why making use of a slot’s demo version is a good idea.

These are the basics of the game. However, if you wish to learn more, be sure to continue reading. Otherwise, all that’s really left to do is to sign up to our casino, browse our selection of slots, pick one that’s right for you, and simply have fun

Getting to Know Slot Terms

As opposed to playing other online casino games, online slots don’t require any extensive knowledge of rules. On the contrary, online slots are known for their simplicity as playing slots literally requires pressing a button.

However, despite their simplicity, there are still some things that new punters in Canada are going to need to know. Otherwise, the whole experience would prove confusing, and that’s no fun at all. Check out our list of key points below:

  • Reels: these are one of the main features of a slot. A slot is laid out on rows and columns; the columns are known as “reels” due to the history of the game. The number of reels generally varies from slot to slot, but the lowest is 3.
  • Symbols: these are images, numbers, or letters that appear on a slot. They’re what a slot “uses” to be able to register any winning combinations.
  • Paylines: paylines, or ways to win, are lines through which winning combinations are calculated. These run from left to right on most slots; however, some have paylines going both ways. The number of paylines range from as little as 10 paylines, up to thousands.
  • Paytable: a paytable is a table that shows you all of the symbols that are used in a slot. Moreover, it’ll tell you how much they’re worth depending on how many of them land in a winning combination.
  • Bet Amount: what you wager in any round on a slot.
  • Spin: this button gets the slot moving and also stops it; this is what you’ll be using to play the game.
  • + and –: click on these buttons to increase or decrease your bets. This allows you to adjust your stake depending on what you prefer to play.
  • Autoplay: if constantly clicking “spin” is proving boring or tiresome, you can make the slot play itself by using the autoplay feature. This makes the slot spin automatically for a number of spins of your choosing, or until a condition is met.
  • Lines: adjusts the number of active paylines on the slot. Note that not all slots and casinos make this available.
  • Bet Per Line: to add more coins to your bet, hit Bet Per Line. This also increases your overall wager.
  • Max Bet: click the Max Bet button to wager the highest betting amount that the slot allows.
  • Collect: transfers your winnings into your account.
  • Gamble: a bonus mini-game that allows you to double your winnings. Generally speaking, it’s in the form of a guessing game.

How Can You Win at Online Slots?

If you’re absolutely new to either online casino or online slots, then you’re going to want to know what it takes to win the game. Luckily for you, there are no complex rules to memorise. The following are the basic steps to winning:

  1. Read the paytable to understand what the features of the slot are and how much the symbols pay out;
  2. Adjust the bet amount to your preferred amount;
  3. Click the “SPIN” button to spin the reels;
  4. If you wish, set the slot to “AUTOPLAY“, which removes the need to click on “SPIN” every time;
  5. If you prefer a faster pace of play, you can set the reels to spin faster;
  6. Finally, enjoy the game!

If you follow these basic steps, you’ll be able to play any of the slots on our casino. All it really takes is some getting used to from slot to slot, which is why we recommend reading the paytable. For more detailed instructions, read the following.

A slot is laid out in a series of rows and columns. On these, symbols are randomly placed. The randomness is based on a random number generator which uses complex mathematical algorithms that guarantee true randomness, making the games fair.

Punters are then meant to spin the slot, which will then replace the symbols with new ones randomly. Punters then win by landing matching symbols on the slot. These have to fall adjacent to one another for the slot to register a win.

Moreover, for the win to be possible, the symbols have to align with the slot’s paylines. Otherwise, you could have matching symbols fall next to each other but still not win since they won’t be aligned with a payline.

However, it’s good to know that wins can be granted along multiple paylines at once. This means that players can potentially get a win from every payline on the slot. Nowadays, however, certain slots have done away with paylines entirely.

We’ll be explaining what different slot types bring to the table in an upcoming section. Moreover, it’s good for you to know that the required matching patterns can be found on the paytable in the game. The paytable also explains how much the symbols are worth.

Finally, slots also have special symbols such as wilds, scatters, and so on. They also have special features like extra spins. These tend to make the game far more entertaining. We’ll explain all of these in upcoming sections.

How Do Online Slots Work?

There are a handful of other things that you should know about slots. These are aspects of a slot’s functionality that go beyond the basic workings of a slot. Despite that, it’s still very good for you to know these things just the same.

What Is Return-to-Player?

The return-to-player or RTP refers to the theoretical percentage of a player’s wagers that the player should receive back as payments. The RTP, however, is generally calculated over the course of millions of spins.

This is because there is a difference between theoretical RTP and actual RTP. The difference lies in the fact that actual RTP is calculated on the slot’s actual payouts over a particular period of time. So, the two values can be different.

What Is Volatility?

The volatility of a slot, also known as its “variance,” is essentially its programmed risk with regards to its frequency of payouts and the size of the payouts. Moreover, volatility comes in a range, starting from low and going all the way up to high.

The higher the volatility, the higher the risk, and vice versa. So, for example, a slot with high volatility usually has long periods where punters won’t see any returns, only to suddenly make up for it all with a massive win.

On the other hand, a slot with low volatility has frequent wins, but these wins would hardly be remarkable. Then there are slots that have volatilities in between these two extremes. Finally, you might be wondering what the purpose of volatility is.

Well, it’s largely to suit the tastes of ever sort of player out there. whilst some punters enjoy playing a very risky slot, others would prefer to play a slot that constantly gives them wins, whilst others still will want something in between.

What Are Extra Spins?

Extra spins are far from being a theoretical value based around a slot’s performance because they’re actual aspects of the game. They’re often given as a bonus round in the game and they tend to contribute to the enjoyment of a slot.

Extra spins are essentially “plays” or “spins” on a slot without punters having to pay for them. However, despite the fact that punters don’t have to wager anything whilst extra spins play, they can still win real money from them.

How Can You Use Extra Spins?

As we said, extra spins are usually given as part of a bonus game in an online slot. Extra spins are also generally unlocked by getting a certain number of scatter or bonus symbols (we’ll be explaining these in the next section).

These extra spins are instantly awarded to you. All you have to do is continue playing the game like you normally would. On the other hand, extra spins can also be given to players as part of a bonus granted by the casino.

In fact, you can receive extra spins when you sign up on Betiton™ as part of our welcome bonus! This will give you 150 extra spins that you can use on Book of Dead, one of the most popular and famous slots ever created.

To receive these extra spins, you will need to deposit to your account after registering. Afterwards, once you receive the bonus, you can use these spins on Book of Dead by simply playing the game as normal.

What Are Special Symbols on Online Slots?

There’s more to slots than simply spins. This includes special symbols, which increase the fun of the slot dramatically. There are various types of these, each one with a different function, which we’ll be going over in this section.

What Are Wilds?

Wilds are staples in the slot world, and are the most common kind of special symbol you’ll encounter when playing online slots. Wilds substitute for all other symbols on a slot, generally with the exception of other special symbols.

Moreover, there are also different sorts of wilds. Whilst these different kinds of wilds still function like regular wilds, they’ll have an interesting mechanic that increases the fun, like expanding wilds that expand to cover an entire reel.

What Are Scatters?

Scatters are another very common kind of special symbol and can also be found on most games. Scatters can take effect no matter where they land on the slot. Usually, they reward punters with extra spins or some other bonus.

What Are Bonus Symbols?

These are quite similar to scatters, in the sense that they always trigger some kind of bonus feature in the game. However, a slot can have both scatters and bonus symbols, each one giving a different benefit.

What Are Multiplier Symbols?

These have some sort of multiplier attached to them. When a win with this symbol is awarded, the win is multiplied according to the multiplier.

What Are Stacked Symbols?

These take up more than the space occupied by one symbol. Essentially, they’re larger symbols that despite counting as one big symbol, they trigger paylines as though they’re made up of multiple ones.

What Are Sticky Symbols?

Finally, these stick to a reel. They remain fixed in place for a couple of spins or any other condition. Moreover, they’re usually wilds as well.

What to Keep in Mind When Playing Slots

So, how can you enjoy a wild and memorable experience when going to play online slots in Canada? First of all, it serves as a useful reminder to keep in mind that both video slots and slots with progressive jackpots are also based on luck.

Due to this, there is no real preparation that you have to do before loading up a game. However, that said, we do have some key points you can keep in mind that may help improve your experience when going to play online slots.

Choose Slots That Are Right for You

Slots nowadays come in so many different varieties that players really are spoilt for choice. Apart from different formats, slots have different offerings. The theme, the prizes, the features—these are all great ingredients for the perfect online slot.

With so many different choices at your disposal, you should really take the time to pick the slot that’s right for you. Whether it’s picking a slot with your favourite theme or a slot that allows high wagers, make sure you pick one that works for you.

To this end, feel free to browse through our slot selection to find the slot that suits your tastes the best.

Play the Demo Versions

Of course, playing slots involves money and it would be rather expensive to try out each one of our slots with real money wagers. That is why we provide all of our players with demo versions of all of our slots.

We encourage our players to take advantage of the demo versions that are available at our gaming lobby. That way, players can test out our games to find out which ones they prefer without having to bet a cent. Feel free to test out as many games as you like!

You can play these demo versions on both the desktop and mobile versions. Of course, keep in mind that the real fun begins when playing with real money. So, when you find the slot that’s right for you, don’t forget to deposit to your bankroll.

Familiarise Yourself With the Paytable & the Slot’s Features

Remember, the symbols hold the key to win a round in online slots. The paytable shows you all the winning patterns, as well as all the symbols used in the slot, including the wilds and scatters, and how much these pay out.

Alongside the paytable, slots also provide information on how their special features work, how their paylines are set, etc. Be sure to read all of this information to understand entirely how the slot works. That way, your fun is guaranteed.

Stick to a Budget

Know your limits. Don’t bet more than you can bargain for. Don’t play online slots until you have decided on a budget and you are ready to stick to it. Once you reach that sum of money, log out. Alternatively, you can set a deposit limit.

At Betiton™, we provide players with responsible gaming measures that include deposit limits. These limits automatically disallow you from depositing more money than the limit you’ve set. The bottom line is this: don’t spend money you can’t afford to lose.

Pay Attention to RTP & Volatility

Our final tip is to pay attention to these 2 key characteristics of slots. We have already explained what these terms mean in a previous section, so be sure that you have thoroughly read and understood that section.

However, let’s explain why they’re important to know: these values give you a rough idea of what to expect from the game in terms of payouts. But, do keep in mind that these values are only theoretical, so your experience of the slot will surely differ.

What Is the Advantage of Playing Slots Online?

As opposed to playing physical slots at a land-based casino, playing slots online offer multiple advantages that you won’t be able to find at a brick-and-mortar casino. You can find a list of these advantages below:

  • wide range of available games
  • large variety of themes
  • players are able to redeem bonuses
  • players are able to try out games

As you can see from the list, playing slots on an online casino has the advantage of providing you with a massive range of available games to play. When joining our online casino in Canada, you have hundreds of slots at your disposal.

Moreover, these games come in a large variety of different themes, which range from Egyptian, science fiction, movies, pop culture, mythology, fantasy, and so on. When playing at a brick-and-mortar casino, this variety is not always available.

Furthermore, playing slots online has the added benefit of being able to claim bonuses, such as welcome bonuses, reload bonuses, and loyalty bonuses. Bonuses are largely exclusive to online casinos and cannot be found at physical casinos.

When playing slots online, you also have the advantage of being able to try out the games without having to wager. This can be done by accessing the slot’s demo version, where you can play it to your heart’s content.

Playing a slot’s demo version helps you understand how a particular slot is played, how slots work in general, and to check whether slots are right for you. You can also see whether a particular slot is enjoyable for you before playing it with real money.

How Do I Pick the Best Slots at Betiton™?

Now that we’ve laid down the basics, it’s time to decide what kind of online slots interest you. Naturally, this comes down to personal preference and can depend on a myriad of things. However, an important consideration is the theme of the slot.

Some of you may enjoy Arcade online slots; others may enjoy ones inspired from Ancient Greece or Egypt; and others may be interested in ones that relate to blockbuster movies and books. Clearly, however, there’s a slot for everybody.

That said, we still have some tips that should help you pick the best online slots. Just as you would check what other games can offer in terms of prizes, it’s a good idea to take note of the bonus games that are offered on online slots.

For example, see if the slots you have in mind provide with you extra spins, wilds, multipliers, mini-games, jackpots, and other exclusives. Ultimately, these can guarantee more thrills and an overall spectacular casino experience.

Looking at the Different Kinds of Slots

Anyone who knows about the history of slots can tell you that they have come a long way, and with the development of modern slots, also came the innovation of new slots. Nowadays, punters have plenty of variety to choose from when it comes to slots.

What Are Video Slots?

These are the most popular slots nowadays. Video slots are an ‘upgrade’ from the original kind of slot which used mechanical reels. Their name comes from the fact that these slots are displayed on screens.

However, “video slots” is just another name for “online slots.” These slots tend to have 5 reels and 3 rows—an upgrade from the 3-reel original slots—but these can vary from slot to slot. In fact, punters can find slots with 6 or 7 reels and others with 4 rows.

What Are Classic Slots?

Just because we’re in the 21st century, doesn’t mean that the slots of old aren’t fun anymore! In fact, a lot of punters enjoy old-school slots. These are properly known as “classic slots” and they imitate the original kind of slots.

Nowadays, most modern classic slots aren’t mechanical, and still use digital reels and all the same mechanics of video slots. However, they would only have 5 reels and a maximum of 9 paylines, much like the classic Vegas slots.

What Are Megaways Slots?

Megaways is a fairly recent mechanic that was innovated by Big Time Gaming. Whilst all slots are random, the Megaways mechanic takes randomness to the next level. Firstly, there are no paylines in Megaways slots.

To get a winning combination, punters need to land symbols on consecutive columns. Secondly, whilst the number of reels on Megaways slots is fixed, the rows are completely randomised. This also randomises the possible ways to win.

In fact, Megaways slots can have up to 117,649 ways to win per spin. Moreover, certain slots have even more than that.

What Are Multiways Slots?

Multiways slots, also known as “all ways pay slots,” are slots that entirely do away with paylines. Whilst they’re similar to Megaways slots, they don’t randomise the rows, and can thus be considered as normal video slots but with no paylines.

In fact, instead of paylines, these slots simply require matching symbols on adjacent reels for a win to be registered. This results in multiple ways to win, starting from 243 and going all the way to 4096.

What Is the Difference Between Real Money Slot Machines & Demo Slot Machines?

Although playing online slots isn’t rocket science, we understand that players would still like to test the waters first. This is why trying out the demo version of a slot is important. No download is required; you simply have to launch our platform.

Video Slots FAQ

Is it easy to learn online slot rules?

How to choose a slot machine at the online casino?

It’s very important that you choose slots that are right for you. However, there are many things to consider when choosing a slot. You have to base your decision both on what you’re looking for as a theme and according to your bankroll preferences.

It’s important to consider things like how appealing the slot at first glance is, the theme, the visuals, and so on. It’s also a good idea to pick a slot that offers features that make a slot so thrilling, such as multipliers, extra spins, wilds, scatters, jackpots, etc.

However, it’s also good to keep in mind what you can afford to play, or what your preferred wager amounts are. Different slots offer different limits when it comes to minimum and maximum bets; these are really important to consider as well.

What is slots RNG, and can it be trusted?

RNG stands for Random Number Generator, which is an algorithm that produces random sequences of numbers. These numbers are then used to produce random results in games, like the symbols that land on the reels.

Can I play all online slots on mobile?

Without a shadow of a doubt. Firstly, we have fully optimised our website for mobile devices. Our platform automatically adjusts itself to your device, meaning that there will be no compatibility issues.
