What are online slots?

Let's take a step back and see what a slot machine is. It is a very basic casino game housed in an arcade-like machine where the reels are spun via a lever or a button. The player bets on the outcome of this spin which appears on a payline as a combination of symbols.

The online slot game takes this concept further and replicates it on a website. Games can now be played with additional game and bonus features such as Wilds and Scatters. There is literally an online slot game theme and bonus feature for each taste and gaming level. These games can be played on a desktop or mobile device.
