The reason why they are so popular is that they are very easy to play and are extremely entertaining. There are thousands of fantastic slot games out there that New Zealanders can enjoy, and luckily for you we happen to have a large selection of some of the very best here at Betiton New Zealand. Please keep on reading as our experts will give you all the information that you should know about slots.
Introducing Online Slots at Betiton New Zealand

We are no exception to this trend, but we also have more than enough table games to keep you entertained.
We always want our New Zealand slot players to have a great slot game experience when playing with us, which is why we have made sure that we have teamed with some of the best software developers in the industry.

How Exactly Do Online Slots Work?
- Random Number Generator
When you compare slots with other types of casino games, you will quickly see just how straightforward they are. Slots are made up of rows and reels to give them a grid format – the simple slot games come with a 3×3 format, while the more complex ones come with a 5×5 format and are more entertaining. On the reels you will find various symbols, which will be a mixture of high paying and low paying ones. The types of symbols that you will find will obviously depend on the type of the theme that the slot you are playing has. When you are playing a slot game you should always remember to keep an eye out for the wild symbol, which is a symbol that can act as a substitute for all other symbols (apart from the scatter symbol). What is the aforementioned scatter symbol? Well, it is the symbol that is usually responsible for activating the bonus features of a slot game – you will usually need to land three or more on the reels for them to activate the bonus round.
Slots, unlike table games such as baccarat, have paylines. When you are playing a slot game, you are trying to line up at least three identical symbols along an active payline. You will usually need this to happen from left to right, but nowadays there are an increasing number of slots that allow their players to win from right to left as well, which is known as winning both ways. Classic slots often have just the solitary payline along the middle row, but you should not be too surprised if you come across a new slot that has thousands of paylines. However, the most common scenario is that you will be playing a slot with 20-25 paylines. Some slots will come with fixed paylines, which means that all the paylines have to be active when you are playing. There are some slot games out there that have variable paylines, and this means that you can turn the paylines on and off whenever you like.
All our games at Betiton come with random number generator (RNG) software, which makes sure that everything remains completely fair. This software generates thousands and thousands of numbers per second and each number gives a different outcome when you push the spin button. As you can tell from the name, the numbers appear at random which means that whatever happened on your last spin will not have any bearing on what will happen on your next spin.
How to Play Online Slots
Online gamblers are fond of slot machines because they are quick to play and easy to get to grips with, very much like our wide variety of fun scratch cards. If you have not played a slot game in your life, simply follow the guidelines below and we are sure that you will not come across any major issues.
- Select the slot game that you would like to play, and it will load within seconds. The reels will fill the screen of your device, and you will see important buttons like “spin” and “max bet”. Your bankroll will be in the corner, and you will obviously want to keep an eye on this while you are playing
- Have a good look at the paytable as this is where you can find all the information that should know such as the worth of each symbol as well as what the wild and scatter symbols are. You will also find out what exactly you need to do in order to activate the bonus features
- Decide how much money you want to play per spin and, if possible, decide how many of the paylines you would like to use. If the paylines are variable and you would like to use them all, then clicking on the “max bet” button is a quick way to select them all
- Click on the “spin” button and the reels will spin. If you meet the criteria to win, the amount that you have just won will be shown on the screen. In most slots nowadays you will have the option to gamble winnings to try and make a bigger profit
- You can keep spinning the reels for as long as you like, but remember to stick to your budget so that you do not end up playing more money than you can afford
See, we told you it was easy.
How to Choose an Online Slot
There are thousands of slots available for Kiwis to play, so it can be tricky when it comes to finding the best ones to play. While the majority of slots all come with the same basic features, they will differ in a variety of ways. Below we have given you the main points that you need to think about when you are looking for a slot to play.
One of the major differences between slot games is the theme that they have. This is what dictates the icons, graphics, and bonus features that a slot has. Different themes will give a different feeling to your slot experience. For example, if we compare an Alice in Wonderland slot with an ancient Egyptian one, then the sound effects, bonuses, and graphics will all be set out on relation to the slot’s theme. You can use this knowledge to help you select a slot game to play. By choosing a slot with a theme that appeals to you and ignoring those that have a theme that does not really pique your interest, you will give yourself an easier time when it comes to choosing a slot. However, we really do recommend that you do not only stick to one theme as doing this will mean that you miss out on a number of great slot games – we suggest that you find two to three themes that you really enjoy.
Something else that you have to consider when you are trying to choose a slot to play is who created it. Software developers have their similarities, but there are no two that are exactly alike. As a result, their slot games can vary quite a lot. For example, Yggdrasil Gaming, one of the best software creators out there, are known for combining fun bonus features with stunning graphics. Microgaming and NetEnt, two other great software developers, on the other hand, are known for creating reliable and solid slot games which are not as dramatic as ones created by Yggdrasil Gaming. We really recommend that you try out a number of different software developers so that you get a good idea about what you like and what you do not like. Once you have found a couple of software creators that you like, you can then search specifically for their games when you are searching for something to play.
Most modern slot games come with many bonus features such as extra spins, multipliers, expanding wilds, and cascading reels. These are the features that come with the biggest prizes, so you definitely need to choose your games carefully. There are some bonus features that will be a lot more lucrative than others, but there is really no easy way to find this out without playing the slots yourself. However, when you come across a new slot that you like the look of, you can check out the features and then have a look at some online reviews that analyse the slot – if you like what you hear, try it out.
The Return to Player, often known as the RTP, is something that gives you an indication of the slot’s payout. It will give you an idea about what the house edge of a slot game is. The RTP is calculated over a long period of time: all it means is that the casino will be guaranteed some of the slot’s earnings over a time, but this is the case with any games that you can play at an online casino. The RTP of a slot is something very important that you have to consider when you are selecting a slot game.

However, please do not just sit there and take our word for it, try some of our games for yourself and you will soon realise that we are telling the truth. As we mentioned above, all our slots have been developed by the best software creators in the world, so you can be sure that you will be able to enjoy a great slot playing experience with us.

Comparing Real Money Slots to Demo Slot Games

What Else Will You Find Apart from Video Slots?

Whenever this feeling arises, you will be glad to find out that we have plenty of other games that you can play to keep yourself entertained. For example, you can find a wide variety of table games such as baccarat, blackjack, roulette, and poker.
If you are a live casino fan, it will be music to your ears to hear that there is a live casino at Betiton New Zealand, where you will be able to enjoy popular table games such as live blackjack or some live roulette. If you do not particularly like roulette or blackjack, then we also have some live baccarat options available.
All slots come with basic characteristics, but they will have different themes, software developers, bonuses features, and RTP. When you are choosing a game to play you need to see if it has a theme that you like, whether it was developed by a software developer that you like, whether it has enough bonus features, and whether the RTP is decent.
Slot games are very simple to play. All that you have to do is find a game that interests you, click it, and wait a few seconds for it to load. When it has loaded, have a look at the paytable so that you can find out about the bonus features and important symbols. Once you have done all of this, you have to decide what your stake will be per spin, and then you click the spin button and hope for the best.
When it comes to famous slot games in New Zealand, the ones that you need to have a look at include Mega Moolah by Microgaming, and Gonzo’s Quest, and Mega Fortune by NetEnt.
