Beginners Guide to play Indian Slots 2018

When it comes to online slots, two types of beginners exist: those already familiar with traditional slots and those who have no experience at all. No matter which category you belong to, the good news is that online slots are relatively easy to pick up. Here's everything you need to know about playing Indian slots online.

Slot Layout

All online slots have a few things in common. First, the slot itself will be composed of columns of symbols that spin vertically. These columns are called reels, and most slots have either three or five of them. Some slots fill their reels with classic symbols, such as 7s, cherries, and BARs. Alternatively, many online slots incorporate the A, J, K, Q, and 10 symbols, as well as a few custom symbols to match the game's theme. These are referred to as video slots.

Below the reels, you are likely to find a few buttons and figures. The most important button is the one that sets the reels spinning, typically marked “Spin.” Many slots also have an autoplay feature that can be used to spin the reels automatically a certain number of times or until you run out of funds. You'll also see displays that let you adjust your bet. To learn more about a slot, look for a button marked by a question mark, three vertical lines, or a lowercase “i” in italics.

Payouts

Every slot has one or more paylines. These are the paths along which symbols can align to form a winning combination. A classic three-reel slot will have one to three paylines, while a five-reel video slot may have as many as 243 paylines (although 25 paylines is a more popular configuration). The slot's paytable will list its paylines and what the winning combinations are. Progressive slots, such as the Mega Moolah slots, offer the added bonus of a jackpot that increases as you play.

Many video slots contain Wilds that replace other symbols, and make a winning combination more likely, as well as Scatters, which may trigger special features such as bonus rounds. These bonus rounds can be free spins or an interactive bonus game. Some slots feature multipliers that can increase your payout or a gamble feature that gives you a chance to double your winnings.

Placing Bets

Although you can play a wide variety of online slots for free — with no money at stake — betting is also an option. To place a real bet, you first need to sign up for an account with that particular online casino and make a deposit. Many casinos offer deposit bonuses that increase your funds or grant you some free spins, and some even offer bonuses without requiring a deposit.

Several factors go into your bet. You can choose how much money each coin will be worth, then choose how many coins to bet per payline. Some slots allow you to choose the number of paylines you want to play, while others have fixed paylines. To simplify things, you can always select the “max bet” button. Consider this an overview or quick guide. Online slots are more nuanced than they appear at first, so it's worth researching the types of slots and features available as well as betting strategies and payout percentages.
