The journey began when the first ever slot-like machines started selling the juicy fruit bubble gums in several fruity flavors including strawberry, lemon, cherry etc. So, when these slot machines instilled the traits of gaming, they used the various bubble gum and fruit images as the spinning symbols on the reels. For a long time, no one bothered to change these images except for the very slow and gradual attempts made on the part of slot game providers who added few more basic images like, diamonds, lucky 7s etc.
But when these slot games hit the platform of online gaming, a lot of in-depth research and technological development gave birth to the numerous themes and several colorful symbols on slots. This new touch to the traditional slot machines made way for the brand new video online slot machines that we all know today.
And not only the symbols, the providers of the online slot machines boldly experimented with the number of reels and paylines too. And from the traditional three reel and single payline slots, they moved to the five reel and multiple payline online slot machines. These 5 reel slot games offered better prospects of winning with their 3, 10, 20, 25 or 50 paylines. The more the paylines, the higher the odds of winning in the game. That’s because you are more likely to reel at least one or two winning combinations on the 20 paylines, than the single payline slot games.
So, whenever you play on these latest multiple payline online slot machines make sure that you select and bet on all the paylines featured in the game. Imagine reeling the highest paying winning combo but on the reel that you never selected or wagered upon? Well, that’s heart-breaking! Isn’t it? So, to save yourself from any such regrets, play on all the paylines!
Such multiple payline online slot machines also come with the multiple betting options! This means that if you think that betting $1 on all the 20 paylines in a multiple payline slot game will cost you a bit too much, then you can conveniently reduce your betting value to one cent.
