What Is a Video Slot
Unlike the conventional slot machines, video slot lacks any moving parts; it is rather a representation in vivid graphics of the game that is displayed on a screen. As players are in effect playing a video game, the companies dealing in video slot machines can provide additional interactive elements, like bonus games and video graphics of an advanced nature.
Besides ,the video slot machine design is not hampered my any mechanical limitations. So, most of these machines come with five reels, instead of the older three. This increases the number of possibilities enormously: a video slot machine can contain as much as 50 symbols on a single reel, offering odds as high a whopping 300 million to 1 odds, something that is sufficient even for the biggest jackpot. Since the five reels include a whole series of combinations provided by these reels, it is not necessary for the manufacturers to weight any payout symbols. This means that symbols that pay high will usually be displayed only a few times on every reel, whereas the common symbols that earn a more recurrent payout, appears several times.
Video slot machines, in general, encourage players to wager on multiple “lines”, instead of merely choosing the middle one of the three symbols seen on every reel. This means that a line can move from top right to bottom left, or in any pattern as specified by the slot manufacturer. As all symbols are equally probable, a player can take one or all of the potential lines offered, with the result that the long-term gain to a player will remain the same. The only difference for a player is that as he/she plays more lines, the more possible it is for him/her to earn money on a specific spin.
After playing for some time without winning, players might feel that their money is slowly ebbing away. To offset this feeling, casinos usually offer bonus games, something that can return their bet many times. In this way, gamblers are encouraged to keep on playing until they reach the bonus. This is true even if they are losing, for the bonus game can let them win back their losses.
