Many players enjoy slot games at our casino, but quite a few don’t understand the subtleties of the games and therefore don’t make use of the many extra features that are available to them. One such item is the bonus features.
Bonus features are one of the better aspects of slot machines and it seems a shame not to use them. Each game has its own features, which can vary from free spins, multipliers and more. These games are usually unlocked in some way within the game when the player completes a required move. These ‘moves’ usually involve creating a combination of a specific symbol, normally a scatter or another icon that is nominated as the bonus symbol that will open up the game for the player. Online slots have got quite good at offering bonus games, some of which even contain storylines and plots throughout the bonus feature. Some offer simpler options such as choosing between a number of different icons to pick a prize. Others offer free spins. Some offer jackpots and wheel of fortune style spinning wheels.
Wheel of Fortune
An example of this here at Kaboo would be Wheel of Fortune Triple Extreme Spin from IGT. It follows the TV show of the same name offering small puzzles to progress. Unlike other versions of this game though, as the name suggests it has three wheels to spin. Activated by landing at least three scatter symbols on the reels, the player is taken to a new screen with envelopes. Choosing the same number as the triggering symbols, each envelope will reveal a pointer of a different colour. These colours relate to the three wheels as each pointer pays out a choice on the corresponding wheel. These triple wheels will then spin and prizes will be won in relation to the pointers positions that were revealed in the previous section. Prizes include coins or multipliers.
Not All Bonuses are Created Equal
Not all bonuses are as convoluted as this, but most still offer worthy rewards. It should be noted though that these bonus games are triggered at random for the most part and there is no guarantee that any games played will actually offer any bonus features in the duration of the gameplay. In addition to this, it is important that players check out pay tables of each slot before playing to ensure they know which bonus symbols they need to keep an eye out for.
