Here’s a slot machine with a little twist to give you more options and more fun. The idea of slot machines is to get as many winning lines and combinations as possible. The amount you bid as well as the number of lines you choose to bid on will be a determination upon how much you can win per spin.
At the beginning of the game you will notice that you have six reels to play with and two rows of betting choices located beneath the reels. The top row of betting choices is the amount you wish to bet; you can bet up to 20. The second row (beneath the betting amount row) is for you to decide how many lines you wish to bet on for that spin; you can bet up to nine lines – provided you have enough money or credits to do so of course.
Once you have chosen your bet amount and the number of lines you are betting, the reels will automatically spin while you wait to see if you have won. On the left hand side of the playing screen you will notice the amount of ‘plucks’ you have available (new games start with three free plucks). A pluck is used if you’d like to exchange one of the characters on a reel with a random character that the computer will choose for you.
Plucks can only be used when you did not win a spin. Be careful how many plucks you use and make sure to use them wisely. You can win more plucks by getting the special blue bird, also known as a ‘scatter’. When you get two or more scatters in a spin you will get a free pluck added to your pot.
Experiment with the different types of betting and the amount of lines you bet on to see how your odds and winnings can change. Remember to use your plucks wisely and always be on the lookout for free plucks.
