Big Banker is a five reel, ten payline slot by CR Gaming. It comes with expanding symbols, an intense, timed bonus round and a top potential payout of 5,000 x the bet.
This six reel slot can offer up to 117,649 ways to win on any spin, thanks to Big Time Gaming's Megaways mechanic. It's also packed full of bonus features, including Free Spins, and players can potentially win up to 12,000 times the bet.
One of the most popular Irish-themed slots of all time, Rainbow Riches Pick n Mix is played on a 5x3 grid with twenty paylines and five great bonus rounds!
If you land on three Horus symbols you can get 5 extra spins with famous Ancient Egyptian theme.
Even more popular than the fishing theme is the Ancient Egyptian. And Book of Dead is one of the originals. This 5x3 slot by Play'n Go has stood the test of time and remains a firm favourite with players thanks to its great graphics, bonus rounds and potential payouts that can reach 5,000 x the bet.
Types of Online Slots
There is a wide variety of different types of online slots available. These can range from classic slots, with just 5 rows and a small number of paylines, to Megaways slots, with over a million ways to win possible. Below we've listed the most common types of slot machines you can expect to find.
- Classic Slots
- Multiple Ways to Win
- Megaways Slots
- Progressive Jackpot Slots
Like we said, these are online slots that most resemble the old land-based fruit machines. They usually come with three or five reels, three rows and a fixed number of paylines.
These are slots that use various mechanics, such as pay-both-ways to provide more paylines for the player.
Megaways slots use Big Time Gaming’s patented mechanic to land a different number of symbols on each reel for every spin. This produces an ever-changing number of ways to win as you spin the reels. Most Megaways slots provide up to 117,649 possible paylines, but some can reach as high as 1,000,000!
Progressive jackpot slots are connected together in networks, and a percentage of every bet made on them is diverted into a shared pool. When certain events occur, the progresive jackpot round, which is usually a separate mini-game, will trigger, and the lucky player can find themselves playing for potential payouts worth millions!
These are just the most common types of slots, but there are many, many more, including animated, 3D and even virtual reality games. Of course, most video slots combine elements of all types, with some classic slots and Megaways slots also offering progressive jackpots as an example.
How do Online Slot Machines work
Unlike the one-armed bandits of old, online slot machines don’t use physical reels to land symbols and determine wins. Instead, what the player sees is a computer animation, and the symbols that land, and winning combinations, are decided by an RNG.
An RNG (Random Number Generator) is a computer algorithm that generates completely random numbers. Each symbol in the game is assigned a range of numbers, and when the player clicks spin, the RNG goes to work, generating a series of numbers, each one corresponding to a position on the reels. The symbols whose values match one of these numbers appear in that position on the grid.
This means the outcome of every spin is entirely random, and is not affected by the outcome of previous spins. And to make sure that the game is fair, the RNG is regularly audited by an independent third party.
Here at Gala Casino, the safety and security of our players is our top priority. All our slot games are generated by a Random Number Generator (RNG), which is approved by the UK Gambling Commission.
How to Play Slot Games
Playing online slot games is incredibly easy. All you need to do is select your game, choose your bet, and click the start button to set the reels spinning.
There are numerous types of slot games to choose from, depending on your preferences. Such as classic 3 and 5-reel slot games with basic bonus features like wilds and scatter symbols to the more advanced slots games from Megaways.
Once you've found your preferred game, check how many reels it has - most have between 3 to 5 reels with 3 to 5 symbols across them. You can also check the paytable before starting to play, which will show you the value of each symbol. When you're ready to play, select your stake (how much you want to bet), and then hit the spin button to start playing.
As you become more comfortable with online slots and their features, you may want to try Jackpot King Slots or Megaways Slots.
Megaways slots have a random number of rows that change with each spin - typically ranging from two to seven or eight. Jackpot King slots offer a progressive jackpot that grows larger as more people play. And then there's Slingo - a delightful blend of the game’s bingo and slots.
Online Slot Themes
The great thing about online slots is that there are practically no limits to what can be done with them, except the developer's imagination. As a result, online slots come with a massive range of themes. You can find games based on ancient civilisations, mythology, fantasy, space, and much, much more!
Mobile Slots are online slot games that you can play on your phone or other portable device. Once upon a time, this usually involved downloading an app. But nowadays, thanks to advances in technology and connectivity, this is no longer necessary.
The Mobile Slot market is one of the fastest growing segments of the industry. And developers are responding by making their games compatible with all devices and operating systems. What this means for the player is that they can now play all their favourite games on any device, at any time!
There’s never any shortage of new slot releases, and here at Gala Casino we select the best to bring to you on a regular basis. We also review the games we add so that you, the player, can choose which one suits you best. And with such a wide range to choose from, it can be difficult to make a decision!
It's important to keep in mind that while the basics are the same, different games can have completely different elements. Many slots now include bonus rounds and special features that are separate mini-games in themselves. That's why it's essential to read a review or the rules of the game before you play.
Try our Slots for Free
One of the best ways to decide whether or not a game is for you is to try it out for free first, before you risk your own cash. This also gives you the opportunity to learn the rules and any twists to gameplay there may be, especially in the bonus rounds. All our slots are available to play in demo mode for our players, and we recommend you take the time to familiarise yourself with the game before playing for real money.
Playing online slot games can be great fun. But it is important to remember that is all they are, a form of entertainment and not a way to try and earn money. Here at Gala Casino, responsible gambling is the name of the game. We recommend that all our players set themselves a loss limit for every gambling session. And we also have dedicated online support staff available around the clock if you feel that you, or somebody close to you is developing a gambling problem and needs help.
