Slots Bonus Rounds add to your winning splurge
Apart from the lights, fun and the constant adrenaline rush; the casino slots offer one another exciting feature – the slots bonus rounds. Adding a new twist to the game proceedings, they provide the much needed break from the monotonous spinning of the reels. Bonus games add value to your gameplay and bankroll.
The casinos are waiting for you to loosen your purse string and continue to keep playing. What better way to do this, than to introduce the slots bonus rounds.
Landing the bonus rounds
Triggering the much anticipated slots bonus rounds is simple, but it needs a bit of patience and luck. It is usually triggered by landing 3 or more of the bonus symbols on the active payline, in a particular combination. The fast paced and profitable action usually takes place on a second screen in case of the mini games; or on the same screen in case of the free spins.
Some of the slots bonus rounds are triggered by collecting specific items over the course of the gameplay. In other cases they are completely random. Whichever case it may be; it’s the brisk and quick nature of the games that makes it quite profitable.
Various Types of Slots bonus rounds
The popular slots bonus rounds that are incorporated by the game providers are the free spins, pick and win, revealing hidden prizes, Match and win and Gamble features among others.
Each one of them end in rewarding the player with extra credits, free spins or multipliers. Some may even end up with you losing all that you have gained, as seen in the gamble feature.
Free spins bonus rounds
Every slots player is lined up for triggering the most popular slots bonus round, free spins bonus round; every time the reels spin. As a general rule, it is triggered by landing 3 or more of the free spins scatter symbol on the active paylines.
The free spins are played at the same bet level and number of coins as in the base game. The number of free spins varies as per the game rules. The free spins can be re-triggered during the free play and all the wins are added at the end of completion of the free spins.
In some cases the free spins can trigger the other bonus games. At which point, the bonus game is completed and the rest of the free spins are resumed.
There is a multiplier that is awarded to the player whenever the free spins are triggered. It is applied to the final winnings after all the free spins are completed. Each free spin wins some money for you.
Match and Win/ Pick and Win bonus rounds
The usual game within a game is your best bet for making a little extra using the same base bet. You will trigger this mini game whenever the triggering symbols are seen on the active payline. The action takes place in a separate screen with totally new animation, graphics and sound effects. Naturally, it is played with a simple gameplay and is pretty straight forward.
The gameplay involved in the pick and win bonus game, is to reveal hidden prizes. It can be multiplier, gold coins or free spins. The game ends with the accumulated wins being added to the base win.
In the match and win bonus game, the player has to match similar symbols until the game ends with all the symbols revealed or the ‘game over’ symbol is uncovered.
While not actually a part of the bonus rounds; the gamble feature adds to increasing your bankroll. It is enabled every time you have a successful spin. The usual gameplay is to predict the correct card colour or the card suit and either double or quadruple your base wins respectively. A risky feature, since a wrong outcome will result in you losing all your base wins.
