Most Common Slot Game Types

megajackpots_cluedo_slot_gameWhenever people enter a casino they always make a beeline right for their favorite game. For some people that’s craps. For others its blackjack. But for many people it’s the slots that draw them in. While there are a ton of games to bet on, slots always get a ton of action in major casinos due to the variety of slots that many places offer. Listed below are the main 4 slot game types that most casinos carry.

Video Slots

Video slots are first on this list because they like to keep things simple. No moving parts or anything like that, just a screen displaying the reels spinning every time you bet. Most video slots do display 5 reels (rather than the trademark 3 reels older machines use) but one of the best things about video slots is the “bonus” games you can qualify for.

These “bonus” games or challenges usually offer a huge payout with the chance of winning a major jackpot during this “bonus” time.

Reel Spinners

A “Real Spinner” slot game type has made the transition from 5 reels to 3 reels which has become the standard for this particular machine. There is nothing like a classic slot game with some of my favorite types of reel spinners being well known favorites to all such as Double Diamond and Blazing 7’s.

Community Slots

This sort of slot game type has recently become more and more popular. Basically you will play your own slot machine that is always a video slot machine. Yet when you hit the “bonus” rounds on these community slots, the players all sitting at the slots can play together.

Allowing slot players sitting at different machines to share in on the same bonus challenges creates almost like a camaraderie amongst the group of people playing together which is a bit different as most people do not view slot machines as being a “team” game.

Overall there is a slot game out there for everyone, give each type of slot machine a shot and see which one you like best (or win the most on) and may lady luck be on your side!
