Nothing but winning options when choosing a slot machine
When you’ve decided to grab a seat and give luck a chance to find you, you have almost as many different slot machines to choose from as you have ways to collect your winnings. Whether you’re older fashioned or interested in the cutting edge, whether you enjoy complexity or would rather keep it simple, you’re sure to find a machine to match your tastes.
Low / High Stakes
One of the main and most important ways that slot machines can be grouped is according to the stakes that they play with. You have a wide range of options to fit your budget, from penny, nickel, and quarter machines all the way to machines that play for dollar amounts and even the high limit machines for the real fat cats.
Another way that slot machines can set themselves apart is through their number of reels. Classic “one armed bandit” style slot machines, the ones you can still see in movies about the Wild West, have three reels. But that’s far from your only choice. In the modern era, five reel slots, which deliver big payoffs less often but small payoffs more frequently, are the most common type of machine. Less common are six and seven reel machines, which can present new possibilities to slot machine design teams and can be extremely complex in terms of who and when they pay off.
It’s also important to keep in mind that, in the modern era, slot machines are not even remotely limited to clockwork devices. The arrival of video slot machines and touch screens mean that, while traditional slot machines are never going to disappear, developers of new games are limited only by their imaginations. One modern trend is in so called “Fruit Machines“, which while basically following the model of a slot machine incorporate side games and greater-than-usual interactivity, such as the ability to “hold” a given reel in place or “nudge” it to a slightly different result.
Video slots, which have no mechanical parts at all and work entirely from a combination of a video or touch screen and a computer, can also present exciting options such as themes that come from popular movies or television shows. There are even some video slot machines that use three-dimensional interfaces, or which take interactivity to the next level by incorporating stories or interactive environments. Once you’ve decided to spend some time playing slots, the sky is the limit and you have no reason to ever get bored!
