Types of Slot Games
While there are a number of different names for online slots (pokies, 3D slots, fruit machines etc.) they all essentially refer to two types of online slot: classic slots and video slots.
Classic slots are also known as reel slots and are the most simple of slots games. They have the appearance of traditional slot games, usually with three reels and can have 1, 3 or 4 paylines.
Video slots take advantage of modern graphics and technology to create a more immersive experience. Mostly they have at least five paylines with some even going up to 100 paylines. In some instances they don’t have paylines at all, instead using their own ways to win, all laid out within the game.
There are games featuring characters from film, slots themed around your favourite sport. There are even slots set in distant lands, mythical eras and most things in between.
Some slots have special jackpots attached that increase in size as the game is played. These are known as progressive slots and with jackpots reaching into the millions, are some of the most popular online slots.
