If you’ve played before, you won’t need any introduction to the new slot machines, as many of the basic symbols and features are the same. Some of the things to look out for include paylines, wilds, and bonus rounds.
More paylines means greater chances of bagging more money. However, in this case, you generally have to make bigger bets. If you’re looking to keep your stake low, you might be able to reduce the number of paylines in play for each spin. Remember though, if you get a winning combination on a payline that you’ve taken out of play, you’re going to regret it!
Not all games have a large number of paylines: it can vary very significantly, so make sure you check before placing your bet.
A Wild is considered technically an extra feature but there aren’t many games where you won’t find wilds on the reels. There are different types of wilds available, and not all are featured in every game.
Sticky wilds remain in the same position for more than one reel, increasing your chances of a win. Walking wilds move across the reels until you’ve had your allotted number. Stacked wilds are possibly the most lucrative, covering an entire reel at a time and offering the possibility of multiple wins in a single turn.
A bonus round is not always present in the slot games but developers are getting more and more creative with this particular feature, recognising that it’s a huge fan favourite. Bonus rounds on new slots are more interactive than before.
