Players of all kinds, whether they are just starting out or they have been playing for a while can run into the odd word now and then that trips them up. An online slot machine, just like any other well-established casino game at Kaboo, also has its own set of terminology.
The better slot players learn these words and phrases the more comfortable they feel while playing, because there are no questions or doubts hanging over their heads about whether or not they understood things correctly.
Here is a short list of some of the most common words and phrases used in the industry to get you started.
Bonus Feature: Any extra mode or feature that is unlocked during gameplay to assist the player in making more money or having more fun.
Cascading Reels: A design feature that allows the symbols to drop into the reels from the top, as opposed to spinning around.
Coin Size: The amount of money that has been put on each coin. Coin size is the same as coin value.
Coins: All bets made in slot machines are done via coins. Whichever currency is being used, coins are purchased for play.
