A Simple guide for playing Slots Online.

Slot Machines are fun and easy to play , most of the online casinos slots have superb graphics and a large variety of slot machines and progressive slots games to pick from.

To start playing slots, you first deposit money into the slot machine. You then normally select which coin denomination you wish to play, and select if you want to "Bet One" or "Bet Max", this is usually 3 to 5 coins but it can be more.

Every time you want to spin, you then either click on "Spin" or the appropriate "Start" button.

As the slot machine spins and stops, your payoff will be determined from a grid of winning combinations listed on your screen.

The amount you win (if anything) is determined by where the reels stop. The objective is to get the symbols (bars, numbers, special symbols, etc.) to line up on the winning paylines in one of the winning combinations listed on the pay grid.

Each game has its own pay grid and special symbols.

For example, three bells in a row may pay 14 to 1. Some slot machines have up to 9 pay lines, and some even pay on the diagonal lines, be sure to read the rules for each game you play.

Progressive Jackpot Slot Machines

Some slot machines have "Progressive Jackpots".

The Big payout on a progressive jackpot machine is not according to a fixed grid as with normal slot machines.

Instead, the jackpot values start at a level and increase every time somebody makes a bet (until a lucky player hits the jackpot).

Online progressive slots can grow to almost $500,000, and obviously are very very popular. However, they can be quite risky, and you can lose a lot of money trying to hit the big jackpot.

Important note: Normally you have to bet the maximum number of coins in order to be eligible for the Big jackpot - make sure you read the slots rules in the casino before you start playing.
