Types of Slot Machine

There are basically two kinds of slot machines.

These slot machines are essentially the same, but for one feature. Flat tops pay the winner a predetermined amount; progressive slots have a jackpot that grows by a percentage of each coin played. You can identify progressive slots by their flashing electronic payoff signs.

Whether playing progressive or straight slots, players are faced with many choices. Slot Machines vary on denomination of coins, the number of reels, how many coins to play, and single or multiple pay lines.

The most common slot machines have three reels, but casinos also offer machines with four or five. When it comes to the odds of winning, what is most important are the number of reels a machine has and how many symbols are displayed on each reel.

Jackpots are rarely hit in machines that have a greater number of reels and symbols. Therefore, most casinos offer higher jackpots on these machines to attract more players and thus generate enough money to pay off the jackpot and produce a profit for the casino. Most machines are set to pay out anywhere from 83 to 98 percent of the coins that are played in the course of a pay cycle.

On average, slots operate on a two or three coin maximum. When it comes to multiple coin playing machines, there are subtle variations. With some machines, the number of coins played is proportional to the payoff, and with others, the payoff is more than proportional. Some machines don't even pay a jackpot on one coin, and the three-coin jackpot often pays 150% of a two-coin win. In this case it is best to play the maximum number of coins.
