Slot Machine Terminology
There are some slot machine terminologies that every decent slot machine player must know. I give you some terms used in slot machines.
All slot machine players must know the system on how slot machines work. Early slot machines only had 20 symbols whereas modern slot machines contain literally hundreds of symbols. The combination of these symbols is determined by the Random Number Generator or RNG. The Random Number Generator is a computer chip placed inside the slot machine.
It randomly selects, from all the possible combinations, the symbol combination that a certain player gets once he drops that coin. RNG run and change every second. It is only when the slot machine player drops the first coin does the RNG stop and determine the combination that player gets.
Reel, on the other hand, is the part of the slot machine that has painted or imprinted symbols in them. Reels are like wheels that spin and the combination that comes out is determined by the Random Number Generator. Different models of the slot machine have different number of reels. This may vary from three to five reeled slot machines.
There are different types of slot machines. Basic slots are slot machines that have a fixed payout no matter how many players play that slot machine. Multiplier slots are slot machines that offer increasing payout for increasing number of coins for a certain symbol. For example, in a multiplier slot machine a player that bets one coin and hits a cherry gets five coin payout, if he bets two coins then he gets ten coins payout, three coins for fifteen coin payout and so on.
Bonus multiplier slot machines are slot machines that offer bigger jackpots if you play the maximum coins that can be bet. For example, to get the jackpot in a bonus multiplier slot machine, a player must both bet the maximum coins and get the winning jackpot combination. If the player hits the jackpot combination and failed to bet the maximum coins then he doesn't get the jackpot. Tough luck.
Progressive slots are slot machines that have an increasing jackpot as more and more people play the slot machine. Progressive slot machines are interconnected with one another and share the same jackpot. If this jackpot is won then the value of the jackpot goes back to its original value. It is said that 10% of every dollar spent on the slot machine goes to the progressive jackpot.
These are only a few of the slot machine terminologies used in the slot machine world. So go spin and win!
