Slots Bonus Rounds Explained
Today I'm going to explain in details different types of bonus rounds in slot machines. To begin with, not all slots have bonus rounds, but the majority of them, mainly video slots, do. Some even have more than one type of bonus round. For example, Immortal Romance online slot powered by Microgaming.
Basically, Bonus Rounds are activated by Scatter symbols. So, if you see Scatters on the slot layout then it's likely the Bonus Round is present there as well. You can figure it out by looking through the slot rules which are hidden under the Paytable/View Pays button. Bonus Rounds change the way a slot is being played by adding extra Multipliers, bonuses or Free Spins as a reward. A lot of players find that they win the most of their money thanks to Bonus Rounds. Often, a Bonus Round will be a Free Spins mode where the player is given a certain number of Free Spins. The wager is set equal to the spin that activated the Bonus Round but the player isn't charged for and simply gets the winnings.
Other popular bonus games include so-called Wheel of Fortune, where players spin a wheel to gain either Free Spins or extra Multipliers. There is also board game style Bonus Rounds where you spin numbers on a dice and play a board game to unlock bonuses and/or multipliers. Bonus Games can also include interactive mini-games which play more like traditional games than slots. The only way to unlock them is to play but there are some a truly amazing slots out there with really fun to play mini bonus games. Interesting fact. Do you know how "slots" sound in Dutch. I've just found myself. It's gratis gokkasten. Pretty nice, isn't it. Nevertheless, it doesn't mean how it sounds, the important thing is Dutch players love free slots as we do.
