Bonus Video Slots – This is the latest gaming trend are the most graphically loaded, glitziest slots to come along in a long time. Bonus Slots are described by 49erCasino as “branded machines”, “entertainment-content”, “brand recognition”, “participation” games, “interactive” & “banking” slots. The name Bonus Slots says it all – an opportunity to go to the ‘second chance’ bonus round where the real money is. Players are on sensory overload with Bonus Slots offering at least 25 symbols filling up the screen in front of them, multiple pay-lines with as many as 5 or 9 pay-lines. Many versions come in penny denominations, nickel, quarter and dollar.

Multiplier Slots – This pays for certain symbols on a graduating scale. On a three reel, you get 5 coins for a “cherry” playing one coin, 10 pay for 2 coins and 15 pay for 3 coins. The payouts for playing 1 coin are much smaller than if player played maximum coins. “Onesies” players stop here.

Max play is mandatory here.
RNG (Random Number Generator) – A Random Number Generator is a piece of software, usually housed in a computer chip placed inside the slot machine by the manufacturer. In online terms, the random number generator is a piece of software on the game server. The purpose of both is identical, and that is to randomly select hundreds of numbers, and symbols every second, faster than you can pull the handle or hit the spin button. It’s working even when the machine is idle. Each random number corresponds to a certain reel and symbol combination that is randomly chosen after the first coin is dropped or credit played. Naturally, the fewest programmed combinations are for the jackpot.
Reels – The number of wheels/reels showing on slot with symbols combinations imprinted. In a classic machine there are usually three, but some slots have five.
Slot Types/Versions – Basic, straight or “flat-top” lots have a constant top jackpot payout that does not change no matter how much the machine is played.
