and the entertaining online roulette. This is exactly the same at Betiton, as slots retain their incredible popularity.

How Do Online Slots Work?
- Random Number Generator
When compared to other types of casino games, slot games are pretty straightforward. Slots have reels and rows which give them a grid format – simple slots come with a 3×3 grid, while the more complex and more exciting slots will often come with a 5×5 grid. On the reels you will find a number of different symbols, which will be a mixture of low-paying symbols and high-paying symbols. The actual symbols that you will find will obviously depend on the particular slot you are playing and its theme. When you are playing slots, you should keep an eye out for the wild symbol (it acts as a substitute for all other symbols apart from the bonus ones) and the scatter symbol which usually triggers the bonus features of the slot you are playing.
Unlike games such as baccarat, slot games come with a number of paylines. Your aim while playing slot games is to get identical symbols, at least three, to line up along an active payline. Usually this will be from left to right, but there are now many slots out there that allow you to win both ways, which means that you can win from right to left as well. Classic slot games will often have just the one payline in the middle, while newer slot games can have thousands. However, the general rule is that there will be 20-25 paylines. Some slots will have fixed paylines, which means that you must play with all the paylines, while other slots will have variable paylines which means that you can decide how many paylines are in action.
All our games have random number generator software, known as RNG, that ensures they are completely fair. The RNG is constantly generating thousands of numbers per second and these different numbers will result in different outcomes on the reels whenever the spin button is pushed. It is completely random so whether you won or lost on your previous spin will have no impact on whether you will win or lose on your next spin. This ensures that our games are totally fair.
How to Play Online Slots
Slot machines are great for online gamblers as they are easy and quick to get to grips with, very much like our selection of online scratch cards. Even if you have never played an online slot game before, just follow the simple steps that we have outlined for you below and you will have no problems at all.
- Click on the online slot that interests you and it will open in a matter of seconds. The reels will fill your screen and you will see operating buttons like “spin” and “max bet”. You will see your bankroll in the corner
- Have a quick look at the slot’s paytable as this will give you vital information such as how much the symbols are worth and as well as what the wild and scatter symbols are
- Decide how much money you want to play with and the number of paylines you would like to use (if the paylines are variable). If you want to use all the paylines, click on the “max bet” button
- Click spin and the reels will spin. If you are a winner, your winnings will be displayed, and you will sometimes be given the chance to gamble your winnings again
- Keep spinning the reels as long as you like, but remember to stick to your budget
See, like we said, they are extremely easy to play.
How to Choose Your Best Online Slot Game
There are thousands of slots out there so it can be really tricky for you to find the best ones to play. While all slots will have similar basic characteristics, there are a number of ways in which they differ. Below we have provided you with points to consider when you are looking for an online slot to play.
The most obvious distinction between slot games is the theme that they have. The theme is what underpins the icons, reels, graphics, and bonus features of the game. Different themes will give a different complexion to your playing experience, depending on the type and features of that particular theme. For example, consider an Alice in Wonderland slot and an ancient Egyptian slot. The sound effects will differ, the graphics will be different, and so will the bonuses – it will all be in accordance with the theme behind the game. You can use this knowledge to your advantage when you are deciding on an online slot to play. For example, by picking slots with a theme that appeal to you and ignoring those that do not, you can significantly lower the choice of slot games available to you, meaning you will have an easier time choosing a game to play. However, we do highly recommend that you do not just stick to one particular theme because by doing this you will be ensuring that you miss out on some other great slots.
Another thing to consider when choosing a slot game is the software developer that produced it. No software developer is like the other, and their games can vary greatly. For example, Yggdrasil Gaming are known for combining excellent graphics with great bonus features, while NetEnt and Microgaming are known for creating reliable and solid games that are not quite as theatrical as the ones that Yggdrasil produce. You should try out a range of software developers so that you can get a good idea as to how they differ from each other. Then, once you have found a couple of slot developers that you really like, you can search for their games when looking for a slot to play.
Most modern slots come with a plethora of bonus features such as extra spins, multipliers, expanding wilds, cascading reels, and so on. These features are often where you will find the biggest prizes, so it definitely helps to select your games wisely. Some bonus features will obviously be more lucrative, but there is no easy way to find out which are the most lucrative without trying the games for yourself. What you can do though is take a look at the features that are available and assess whether they sound promising – if they do, give it a shot.
The Return to Player is the number that indicates the payout of a slot – it indirectly gives us the house edge. This is based over a long period of time and does not mean that it is a guarantee. All it means is that the casino receives a certain percentage of the slot’s earning over a period of time, but this is the same with all casino games. If online casinos were not making guaranteed money, there would be no online casinos to start with.
