Video Slot Machine Installation
Video slot machines are more sophisticated games, with bonus levels, music and sound effects and animations that go with the game's theme. Due to the larger size of more complex online slots games, players usually must download the game's program onto their computer to play.
The online casino's website will have the download available, along with installation instructions and system requirements. The requirements are the minimum resources the player's computer must have to play the game. If the player's computer does not meet the requirements, he or she may have to opt for the flash version of the software.
Video Slot Machine Game Play
Online slots games have rules and directions either displayed on the casino's website or included in the game's menu. While rules vary by game, many games offer scatter and wild symbols, bonus rounds and other prize features for players.
Scatter symbols set off a bonus round, often giving a player free spins and multiplying any prizes earned. Wild symbols may be used in place of other symbols needed to make a winning line combination. The amount and placement of wild and scatter symbols necessary to set off a bonus depend on the game and are usually stated in the game's information.
When playing slot machines, betting options usually start at $0.01, with high rolling bets available at most online casinos. Maximum bets vary, depending on the game. Some games allow bets of over 10 coins per payline. Players should check betting limits in the game's information.
Online Casino Features
Online casinos offer tournaments and other opportunities for players who want to bring more of a physical casino feel into their play time. Many online casinos offer sing-up bonuses, with some casinos offering matching play deposits of up to $200, for new players.
A player will have to register and make a deposit to play at an online casino. Each casino has its own set of rules, which players must learn to avoid breaking.
