The main feature of slots that distinguishes them from other gambling games is the rotating reels. The player’s goal is to spin the reels and get as many winning combinations as possible. However, there are different types of slots. Today the most popular are classic, fruit, video and 3D slots.
Modern slots also contain symbols (wild, scatter and regular symbols), free spins (or spins), multipliers, etc. Let’s see what these slots and special features look like.
As a rule, these are slots with 3 reels and 1-5 paylines. Some of them contain only one special function. An example of a classic slot is the Ultra Hot game.
These are fruit-themed slots containing many fruit symbols that form winning combinations. One of the most popular fruit slots is Sizzling Hot by Novomatic.
Slots of this type have animated winning combinations and bonuses. Such slots are produced by Microgaming, Playtech and other well-known companies.
Slots with 3D graphics and effects.
