Different types of slot machines are available at the online and on land casinos today. And the term slot generally denotes the slot machines used in these casinos. Slot machines originated in the late 1800’s and were designed by a one armed bandit called the liberty bell. The slot comes with many variations and the player needs to know about the different variations and importance of the slots and the reels if he wishes to win the game and earn good money.
Three different slot machines are used to play today and they are the reel slots, progressive slots and the video slots. Each type of slots has a unique characteristic, which makes it different from other types of slots. Three reel slots is the classic version, which has three reels that spin on a single pay line. Better technology and a more visibly beautiful five reel slots allow the winner to win multiple lines as well.
Generally, slot machines have either 3 or 5 reels and if anyone wishes to pass time or play for trial, then free slot machines allow you to spin the reel but without the chance to win any cash. The three slot machines which came first is also known as ‘regular’, ‘standard’, or ‘classic’ slot machines. Modern machines have five reels and usually have more than one pay line to bet on.
Playing slots is as simple as it all sounds. Just pick your game, read the instructions specified and hit the play button (also known as spin, bet, bet max depending on the game and the machine) or just pull the reel and await the results with cross fingers.
