Slots from slots - how to tell one from the other

Are you under the impression that the sea of slots out there on the casino floor are all pretty much the same? Actually there is a little bit worth knowing about the different types of slot machines, and it mostly revolves around the pay out schedule.

To get started, have a look over the pay out schedule on the front of your favorite machine. You'll typically see the denomination of coin the machine takes, along with some indication as to weather it harbors a progressive jackpot or not. You can also see if it multiplies it's payback based on the number of coins you use. This is commonly referred to as a multiplier slots game. If you were to hit a $100 pay line and had played just one coin you would be paid $100. If you hit the same pay line while playing two coins you would be paid $200, and for three coins $300.

Bonus multiplier slots simply add some extra cash on the best payouts if you have played the maximum number of coins. Be careful here, don't let yourself hit a big pay line having only played 1 coin, you might see a few thousand possible dollars disappear before your very eyes. This is a very, very frustrating experience and in it's extreme case, people have been robbed of entire jackpots for failing to play full coins.

Multiple pay line machines have the same trick hidden in them. A multiple pay line slots game is one that lets you have three chances at a win on each spin. This is done by turning the lines just above and just below the standard pay line pay lines themselves. The trick is, those lines are not activated unless you play more coins. Typically each coin played activates an extra pay line.

To further the confusion a little more, the ultimate in frustrating slots games was created: the buy-a-pay. With a buy a pay machine each extra coin you put in activates the possibility of another level of jackpot. For example if you play one coin no jackpots are available, two coins, the second biggest jackpot but not the huge one, and on three coins or full coins only, the largest jackpot becomes available. This means that if you play just one coin and you hit the combination for the jackpot, a jackpot which would pay thousands had you played full coins, you win nothing. No bells or whistles, nothing. Now that's frustrating.
