If you’re wanting to learn a little bit more about all these features and what to expect from the most common slots bonuses stick around, we’ve created a little guide just for you with our very best tips and tricks!

Slot Symbols


Wild symbols, what are they and how can you benefit from them? The wild symbols are also known as substitutes in some slots because of their function. Your wild symbols main function is to substitute for other symbols over your reel to help create winning combinations. The wild symbols will be mixed with normal symbols on your reel and will spin among the rest of your symbols. If the game requires five matching symbols on a payline the wild symbol can generate a win with four matching symbols and a wild, get it? Or if your game requires only three matching symbols on a payline your wild symbol can increase the value of your win if it lands in a combination with your three matching symbols.

Some wild symbols have two functions, the substituting function and a multiplying function. If your wild also holds a multiplying function this means it will multiply your win with a predetermined number if it’s a part of a winning combination. So use the wild symbols to increase your chances of making a win and to collect greater wins!


Scatter symbols are very common in online slots and are highly appreciated as they can score a win without having to land on a payline! The more scatter symbols you collect during one spin the higher payout you are likely to receive. Scatter symbols can also hold multipliers to increase your win even more. It’s very common for the scatter symbol to be the trigger for a bonus round in your game. Often three or more scatter symbols over your reel is required to activate the bonus feature.

Bonuse Rounds and Features

Free Spins

Free spins are a common term used in the casino world and these are basically a chance for you to spin the reels during a bonus for free. No money will be taken from your account when you play free spins. Free spins are classed as a bonus feature and will require a certain combination of symbols to get triggered. The amount of free spins you can win varies from game to game. In Pixies of the Forest for example, you can win up to 11 free spins played on richer reels and in Amazon Queen you can win up to an incredible 100 free spins! In some games your free spins bonus can be retriggered and you will be able to claim even more free spins, Fu Dao Le is an example where your free spins can be retriggered.

Tumbling Reels

Win after win after win is something that’s possible when playing the reels of slots with tumbling reels! Tumbling reels means that your symbols will fall from above instead of spinning around, when you land winning combinations with tumbling reels all symbols involved in that win will disappear from your reels to make room for more symbols to fall down and if you are lucky even these symbols will create a win. The feature will continue for as long as you land a winning combination and all your wins will be paid out at the end of the feature. Tumbling reels basically means that you can collect more than one win with one single wager! Try for yourself in Pixies of the Forest or Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play.

Pick Bonus

A pick bonus is basically an instant win. All slots require different combinations to activate the bonus unless it’s a modifier and will appear at random. When a pick bonus is activated it’s up to you to pick between pots of gold, chests, masks or whatever the theme of your chosen slot is. A pick bonus can award you with cash payouts, multipliers, free spins or any other exciting prizes.


Multipliers appear in many slots and can increase your win instantly! Multipliers come in all different shapes and forms. It can be a symbol on your reel, it can be a prize in a bonus round or it can be awarded randomly during a game. Multipliers can start from as little as 1x but in some games multipliers up to 1000x can be available! Enjoy the multipliers in Super Diamond Deluxe or Wild Knights.


The biggest award of them all is the jackpot bonus! The progressive jackpot bonus can be won while playing the likes of Diamond Jackpots and Slots O’ Gold. The Jackpot King bonus can be triggered with any slots stake by collecting five Jackpot King symbols over your reel. With a payout as special as the Jackpot King you shouldn’t expect to get to the top with just one spin, you must climb up the ladder and if you are lucky enough and reach the top you will get a crack at the Jackpot King for a chance to win a life changing amount of cash!
