Slot Machines, also known as Fruit Machine, Poker Machine and One armed Bandits is a Casino gambling machine with spinning reels. It is estimated that about 70 % of Casinos income is from slot machines. In other words: They are extremely popular. This is valid for land-based as well as net-based online casinos.
One of the reasons for the slots popularity is that they are extremely easy to play on. You don’t need any skills in order to play them. You will win some money when you are playing, but there is a great risk that you will spend all your winnings. If you are lucky you might win very big prizes.
Classic and Video Slots
Slot machines are themed in different ways. And they exist in almost all forms. The so called Classic Slots are usually slots with only three reels and with one, or at the most: five lines to play and win on. You might expect that these slots are very outdated compared to the so called Video Slots, Feature Slots, Bonus Slots or Jackpot Slots. These types of slot machines usually have five reels and a lot of lines to bet and win on. At Slots Tested we encapsulate most of these slots into the category ” 5 reel slots”, except the Jackpot Slots.
The 5 reel slots usually have one or more bonus features. This means that when you get a certain winning combination a bonus game will start, or you will be awarded a number of free spin with a win multiplier. If you get this on a slot with as many bet (pay)-lines as possible, you will increase your bankroll quite good during the free spins or the bonus feature. Less bet- (or paylines) means less possibilities of getting a winning combination on the reels. So, more paylines=bigger and more frequent wins, but also more expensive spins. If you are seeking entertainment the multi-payline slots is for you. If you are seeking safety and more laidback gambling, the classic slots are for you.

Most slots in online casinos gives you the option to choose your own coin value. It is always wise to set your own value before you spin. If you by accident hit the “Bet Max” button you might be empty of cash in your first spin! It is NOT likely that you will get a win instantly, so check your bets before you hit the spin!
