The types of symbols you'll find
While no two slots are the same, they are usually quite similar when it comes to including the following symbols: standard, wild, scatter and bonus. A slot may have one or more of these.
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 symbols that act as replacements for standard symbols. Think of them as playing the role of a joker in a deck of cards. The wild symbol comes in a variety of forms. For example, you have the walking wilds that shifts position, an expanding wild that grows to partially or fully cover a reel, and multiplier wilds which apply a multiplier to wins that they take part in.
Scatter symbols under normal circumstances do not need to appear on the same active payline to reward a payout. You only need a minimum amount to appear anywhere to trigger a special feature. This feature typically in-volves free spins, awarded in a pre-determined amount. During free spins, there is often a special feature that might include a win multiplier. Also, you may be able to re-trigger free spins meaning the game might award you additional free spins.
Bonus symbols are often the most exciting part of a game when appearing in a certain amount (normally three). The rea-son is that they unlock a bonus game that is often the best chance of winning the biggest prizes.
