If you are new to slot machines, there are a few things to know. One of the most important is that they are not all created equal. Slots can be broken into two general categories– video slots and mechanical slots. Video slots are recognizable by their colorful screens and animated features while mechanical slots have three spinning reels on a single screen.
Read the Literature
When playing on a machine for the first time, make sure you read the information about it on the screen before you start playing.
This will give you an idea of what types of games are available for play, how long it takes to play each game, and what specific rules apply.
What are the Reels?
You should also understand how many “lines” or “reels” are being played at once when you get into the game. The more lines that are being played simultaneously, the higher your chances of winning!
Keep in mind that certain slot machines will have lower payout percentages than others so always read up before playing!
