Online slots are software versions of casino slots machines playable over the Internet. Online slots usually contain between three to five reels with around 22 different images on the reels. After depositing money into their account the user pays an amount to spin the reels, if specific patterns of images appear such as three of the same kind the user wins a cash prize. Online slots increasingly offer multiple win lines, such as diagonal or similar allow the users to make multiple bets on each spin.
Slot machines give the appearance that there is an equal chance of stopping at each position on the reel but this is not the case as each position has a weighting that determines the likelihood the reel will stop at that point. Based on the reels and these weighting it is possible to calculate the payout percentage.
Online slots have made possible large scale progressive jackpots that accumulate with each spin across a network of multiple casinos, this has made possible extremely large jackpots.
Most online slots come as part of a suite of casino games from an online casino available either as a software download or playable within a Web browser.Powered by Sidelines
