Glossary and Popular Terminology
Auto Play – Most slots have an ‘auto play’ feature that allows you to sit back and relax, instead of continuously clicking the ‘Spin’ button. Games will offer a multitude of options for how long you’d like it to spin for – but remember that each spin will cost the same as your initial stake.
Bet Max – To bet on the maximum number of lines and maximum amount per line, based on the denomination of coin selected.
Bonus Feature – Many slot machines offer bonus features, which include anything from bonus game modes to free spins.
Coin Size – The amount bet on each spin is determined by the size of coin you select. The higher the coin denomination, the greater the amount of potential winnings you’ll be playing for.
Free Spins – This one is pretty self-explanatory. As part of a bonus mode, some slots offer players free spins, either triggered by certain symbols or appearing at random during the game.
Jackpot – Again, a familiar term for many, the jackpot is the largest win available on a particular slot.
Multiplier – A bonus feature that appears on some slot machines, whereby a player's winnings on that particular spin or series of spins are multiplied.

Stacked Wilds – These are multiple wild symbols that are stacked on top of each other on a reel, boosting your chances of landing a winning combination.
Wild – A wild symbol is one that can be used to substitute for any symbol on the slot to help create a winning combination.
