Different types of symbols
While each slot is different in its own way, most of the slots end up having similar symbols. They come in the form of standard symbols, scatter symbols, wild symbols and bonus symbols. Some slots have just a few of these symbols while others have all of them present.
Standard symbols are typically divided into three to five upper-paying and four to five lower-paying. Identical sets of sym-bols must land in either a cluster or on the same row of an activated payline. The winnings typically grow in proportion to the size of the cluster or number of identical symbols on an active payline.
Wild symbols are special because they can replace other symbols. Most slots allow wild symbols to replace standard symbols but some slot games allow wilds to replace all symbols. Wild symbols can come in the form of multiplying, expanding and walking wilds.
Scatter symbols are not required to appear on an active payline. However, when a certain amount of scatter sym-bols appear, a special feature usually gets triggered. Most of the time, this will trigger a free spin feature which will give you a specific amount of free spins that can often have a special feature attached to them. One of these special features will result in your winnings getting multiplied.
Bonus symbols are the most exciting symbols as they give you special prizes. When you get a specified amount of symbols (usually 3) on a winning payline, a special bonus gets triggered. In some slots, these bonus symbols can appear anywhere. These special bonuses usually give out the highest payouts.
