Never played online slots before? Wondering what all the fuss is about? We’ll demystify the slot slang for you, so you can spin the reels like a seasoned professional. It’s much more fun when you know what the symbols mean and what they do to help you win. In Part 1, we explained how Wilds are your friends. In this post, we’ll look at Scatters.
Scatters – The Scatter symbol is usually linked to the main theme of the game, and along with the Wild, is one of the most important symbols in the game. Scatters are the only symbols that Wilds can’t replace.
The benefit of Scatters is that you don’t have to get them in specific positions in order for them to pay out. Usually three or more anywhere across the reels will mean a payout for you. Generally speaking, the more you get, the bigger the payout.
Usually three or more Scatters, sometimes in specific positions, will trigger an extra feature. In some games, this feature will be a Free Spins feature, and in others, a Bonus feature. For example, in the Surf Safari slot game, three or more of the Scatter symbols (the game logo) will trigger the Safari Surfwax Bonus feature, where you can choose from the 15 Surf Waxes to reveal the prizes they hide.
As slots are getting more interesting, and more features and special bonuses are added, it can sometimes seem a little confusing, but knowing the basics will help you play all the fancy new video slots at Vegas Palms Online Casino with confidence.
