What are Wild Symbols and Scatter Symbols
casino blog
24 June 2015

Online slot machines today are far more complex than they were ten years ago. They all have regular symbols, but most of them also now have Wild Symbols and Scatter Symbols. That’s not all though. You can now find multiple variations of these symbols and the main purpose in life for the Wild Symbol is to substitute all other symbols on the reels to help generate a new winning combination.

The only symbols that the Wild Symbols usually do NOT have the ability to substitute are the Scatter Symbols and the Bonus Symbols. Some Wild Symbols can cover just one symbol positon on the reels and others can fill entire reels. These ones are otherwise known as Expanding Wild Symbols, Stacked Wild Symbols, Grouped Wild Symbols, Wild Reels or Rising Wilds. It seems as though online casino software companies keep on reinventing this useful little symbol and this is great news for players.

Science Fiction Themed Slot Machines
casino blog
13 September 2013

We have discussed popular online slot themes in the past and one of the most recently discussed themes was the fishing theme. Other popular themes include the Love & Romance theme, as well as the Action theme, the branded Marvel™ & DC Comic™ book heroes theme, the Egyptian theme, the Lucky Irish theme, the Horror theme and the Money & Wealth theme, but this is just scratching the surface.

When you take all of these different themes into account, the most popular by far has to be the Science Fiction theme. Ok, so this may not be your favourite them, but for many players it is. Most of today’s online slot machine developers have produced not just one science fiction themed slot, but numerous. This particular theme is also often recognised as an Alien theme, a Space theme, a Stars & Planets theme or a U.F.O theme, but to generalise, the phrase sci-fi or science fiction is probably more suitable.

The ever Changing Face of the Online Slot
casino blog
23 June 2012

Online slots have come a long way in the looks department since the mid-1990s when slot machine software was still in its infancy. This section take a brief look at how they have evolved over the past 15 or so years, looking at the first ever classic slot up to the most recently developed 3 dimensional i-Slots.

Classic slots were the first slots to become available online. These had just three reels and one winning payline and very few player controls. They are still around today and it was Microgaming who first blessed us with their creation.  In fact, that very first slot, ‘Cash Splash’ can still be played today in various Microgaming-powered online casinos.

All of a sudden, more slots started appearing and other software companies began developing their own take on a slot machine. More online casinos also started popping up all over the web and players didn’t have to look far to find a slot.

Are you up-to-date on the latest slots terminology?
casino blog
24 September 2009

As with every competitive game, we have our own terminology and unique words in the slots world which we would just like to recap on to ensure you know what we’re talking about. If you’re a fan of playing slot machines I’m sure you’ll understand that it’s much easier to play when you are familiar with the terms used throughout the game.

Slot Reels- The wheels in a slot machine which display the images and determine whether you win or lose. The reels are the most important part of a slot machine, without them there would be no game!

Slots RNG (Random Number Generator)- There is a computer chip within every slot which contains a RNG which will generate a number for each reel within the machine. This number is then divided by another number (which can be one of 6 numbers; 16, 32, 64, 128, 256 or 512) and the remainder of the calculation will be the number placed against that reel to decide when it stops spinning.
