Online Slots for Fun and Slots for Real Money

When you are getting started with online slots it is important to know that there are several types of slots games and not all of them work the same way. When you log onto any online casino, the games menu will give you a list of different kinds of slots games, and you can click on the kind you want to play in order to see the selection offered. Before you choose to play a slots game, it is important that you understand and get to know the game. This is when you can choose to play slots for fun or to play slots for real money. When you have played the slots game a while and decided this is the game for you, you can play the slots for real money.

Several Variations of Online Slots

-Three reel slots are probably the easiest to start out with. Once you have decided on the amount of your bet, all you need to do is spin the reels. If you get three of a kind across the pay line you have won. Some three reelers offer more than one pay line, such as on the diagonal, or one up and one down. These slots have a set jackpot and all the various winning combinations are clearly displayed on the screen.

-Five reel online slots work on the same principle as the three reelers except that they usually have more pay lines plus the extra two reels give you a better chance to win. Again the jackpot is a set one and you must play the maximum number of coins to be eligible for wins on all the pay lines and the jackpot.

-Video slots are a lot more complicated but also a lot more exciting to play. They generally have five reels but they have multiple pay lines, sometimes as many as forty, and, just recently, some games have come out with 100 pay lines. Again, to be eligible for all the many payouts, you must play the maximum number of coins to cover all the pay lines. This can be a bit expensive, but most of the video slots start with a coin denomination of $0.01 which is certainly affordable when you are playing slots for real money. Under the type of video slots you will find the UK styled slots called fruit machines. The fruit machines have novelty themes and a lot of interaction in their games, and the British play them online, in pubs, in clubs and in arcades.

-Progressive slots are undoubtedly the most exciting of all. These online slots have jackpots that progress every time someone plays. They are connected to a network of slots so that it isn't just your plays that make the jackpot grow, but it can grow from a global network of players. Progressive slots, like video slots, have many bonus features such as free spins, wild symbols, scatter symbols, gamble features and bonus games. Progressive slots cannot be played just for fun (for free). They are slots for real money only, so it is important to know all the rules of each progressive game before you begin to play.

In general, remember that UK online slots are games of chance. The spins are operated by computer random number generators and it is impossible to foretell what the outcome of any spin will be. Although the British fruit machines allow you a little more control of the reels, basically you are still playing a game of chance. Don't try to strategize, just play your favorite slots for real money at your favorite casino and have fun.

Mobile Slots

One of the more convenient aspects of mobile slots games is that you can play at any time of the day or night. Any time you want, you can log in to the mobile casino and then -- whether you have five minutes or five hours - you can play a few rounds of the game.
