The reels spin… and spin… and spin… they stop… yes! Here, the expected combination has arrived. This is expected of every player when playing a slot machine. Being able to win, maybe even a nice nest egg. But, of course, things aren’t that easy. Slots are the type of game suitable for novice players because there is no need to learn any complicated rules or strategies. Players must not have done any kind of statistic or probability training as the outcome of the reels depends largely on luck. You simply place your bet, spin the reels and hope for a win. Therefore slots are considered simple, fun and exciting and are one of the favorite games of the players.
The slot machine game is very particular , in fact, compared to other similar ones, it does not involve any interaction with other people, either as a dealer or as other players. It is a rather fast game , as it can take just a few minutes between the bet and the outcome. For this, of course, there is no risk that the player will get bored and, therefore, as inevitably happens, will continue to play. From its first appearances the slot machine has exercised a special charm on anyone who came close to it, even if the winnings were tied to the amounts physically present in the machines and represented by the sum of the bets made.
A 3-reel slot machine , with a single pay-line , was a more than satisfactory result in the past. The prize pool thus conceived gave birth to the well-known jackpot . With the passage of time, things have naturally changed, in fact with the spread of various games of chance, the turnover of gambling halls, or casinos, has increased dramatically. At that point, the demand from players for more rewards and winnings also increased.
And so much has happened, with the logical consequence of the even more significant increase in revenues for casinos, and so going forward, creating a circle that repeats itself, to the benefit of the same, but, in the end, also of the players , who can aspire to sums that are sometimes really large.
Most of the newly developed slot machines are software driven , having long since abandoned the completely mechanical management of the past. This change has allowed the multiplication of payment lines , available to each machine. And today we have reached the maximum expression of winning, represented by a prize pool that increases over time, that is the progressive jackpot .
