The only casino game that originated in America is the slot machine. It is 100 percent all American. Since then it became very popular. Machines today are installed with microchips that provide the players with endless variety of alternative options. Categorically there are two kinds of slot machines.
The Straight type of slot machines and the Progressive type of slot machines are the two basic types of slots. The Straight is the type of machine that always gives cash according to a preset payout agenda. The payouts are always the same with the same specific combination if hit. The prize money is already predetermined.
With the second basic type, the Progressive slot, from the word itself it means that the machine is progressively growing. The more coins you insert on the machine the more you can earn back upon hitting the right combination.
However, there are different types of progressive slots depending on what the casino operators want to set on their slot machines. The stand-alone slot is a collective jackpot from a single machine only. The second one is the in-house slot, where the slots in a certain casino are connected with each other. The progressive is growing from the network of slots in one casino. The third type of progressive is the wide area. The progress growth of the jackpot is networked from multiple casinos all over a certain state or area.
The players will determine the prize they can get from a slot. The accumulating jackpot for the progressive is displayed on a digital machine situated at the upper most part of the machine.
Slot machine patrons should keep in mind that there is only a 2 percent chance of winning on the slots. The main factor of winning in slots is still luck.
If the player wants to go home with the highest jackpot the progressive has been collected the players must place his bet on all the pay-lines of the slot machines. An example would be if the progressive slot has a fix bet of $.50 with 10 pay-lines that player would bet the max of $5 each spin. Players should be sure to afford the max pay-line for the machine for a long period of time. If the player can’t afford the max pay-line then he should look for a slot machine that offers a smaller max pay-line.
Slot machines are still a game based on luck. You can never know if you will hit the jackpot. Whatever type of slot machine you bet into, always bear in mind that this game is for fun and hope that you will hit the jackpot.
