What makes a slot machine so ‘special’?
The strength of slot machines is mainly the recognisability and the fact that after a few spins you understand exactly how the machine works. Where many slot machines require quite a bit of puzzle work, slot machines are usually very simple. Slot machines often consist of a limited number of reels and paylines. Also, slot machines almost always work with the same symbols: fruit symbols (cherries, lemons, oranges, etc.). So players will be more likely to play if they already have experience with another slot machine. That is also the explanation that you mainly encounter this type of slot machine in entertainment venues such as pubs and discotheques.
Another notable feature of slot machines is the bonus game. This is often called the top game (the bottom game is actually the standard game). In the top game you can win the really big prizes. However, the top game requires considerably more effort. And actually you only play the top game if you have won a nice number of points in the bottom game.
Finally, almost every slot machine also has a ‘double game’. In 9 out of 10 cases this concerns heads or tails. By betting on heads or tails you can try to double your number of points won. However, if you gamble wrong, you will immediately lose your profit. So know what you are doing …
