What is a Slot?


Slot is a casino game where players choose the amount they want to bet and spin a set of reels. If a certain number of symbols line up in a row when the machine stops, the player wins credits for the bet.

Payline – a pattern that can make a winning combination

A payline is the set of rows that run vertically across a slot game’s reels. Matching symbols in a payline will give you credits, depending on the type of slot machine.

Wild symbol – a special symbol in advanced slots that can substitute for other symbols to complete a win.

Scatter symbol – a special symbol in advanced slot games that can also activate bonus rounds, sometimes without the need for a payline.

Credit meter – on mechanical machines, this is a seven-segment display that shows the number of credits available. In video slot machines, the credit meter is usually stylized to fit the theme of the game.

Meta Title & Description – this is the text that shows up when you search for a slot online and gives an idea of what it’s like to play. It should be clear and exciting, so readers will click on the link to find out more.

Return to Player (RTP) – this is the percentage of money you will win over time, based on how much you bet. It’s important to understand RTP for slots and the factors that affect it, such as volatility.
