Online casinos are popular among players, and especially their popularity has increased significantly due to the pandemic. Therefore, all gambling sites offer their users many bonuses and special offers. One of the most common are free spins. Let's take a closer look at what it is.
This means that with free spins the player has a certain number of times to spin the reels of the slot for free. This means that a gambler plays without risking his own money, but still he has the opportunity to claim a win (depending on the requirements and restrictions of the casino).
Most often, free spins are offered to the player in packages of 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 or more spins. They have their own characteristics and limitations that you need to be aware of in order to effectively use these bonuses.
Free spins received from a casino, and not from a specific slot machine, have a validity period during which they can be used. Otherwise, the bonuses presented will be depleted. In addition, the casino often defines a limited list of slot machines in which these bonuses can be applied.
The use of free spins can be limited by the maximum wagering amount set by the casino. And after receiving the winnings from the bonus round, you need to take into account the wagering coefficient, which indicates how much you need to wager in order to withdraw the winnings to the player's main account.
The player can receive free spins from the casino or directly by playing the slot machine. In the first case, the following bonuses can be provided:
Each online casino offers players different conditions for receiving free spins and other bonuses. Often, gamblers choose a casino based not only on licenses and the range of slot machines, but also on the profitability of special offers.
Another way to get free spins is to win them at the slot machine. Most modern slot machines, they are also slots, offer bonuses that can be obtained for certain combinations of symbols on the reels.
For example, having collected several scatter symbols on the playing field, the player receives a package of free spins, which can be used the next time the reels spin.
Each slot machine has its own symbols. In order to win, a player must have at least 2 or 3 identical symbols on an active pay line. But what happens when certain symbols appear on the reels and what do each of them mean?
All modern slots have a different set of symbols. These are the images placed in each cell of the reel. They can be different: in the form of playing cards, certain symbols, depending on the theme of the slot itself, heroes of fairy tales, movies or cartoons, and so on. It all depends on the developer's imagination. In addition, there are slot machines with special symbols.
The most common types of symbols in various machines are:
Standard - ordinary symbols that must form a combination in the pay table.
Wild is a broad category with various features such as multipliers, substitution of a winning symbol and others.
Multiplier - multiplies any payout on the active pay lines that the symbol is on.
Scatter - a win every time it appears (it doesn't matter if it is on a pay line or not).
Bonus - allows you to launch a free bonus game and other bonus options.
In most slots, all the images on the reels reflect the theme of the slot game. Characters can be altered to reflect themes in particular, such as mythology, history, or popular TV shows and movies.
However, some symbols have long become traditional and are used regardless of the general theme of the slot. Although there are tens of thousands of different slot machines, the symbols that appear on their reels are more or less the same.
