Pokies are perfect for players who enjoy an effortless gaming experience, where no skill is required. That is because there are really three simple steps to playing any video pokie: Decide how much you want to bet. All pokies come with minimum and maximum bet limits. Choose how many and which paylines you want to bet on (if applicable). Click on the “spin” and leave the rest up to chance. If your spin lands a combination with matching or special symbols, you win. How much you win depends on the size of your bet as well as the symbols landed. The majority of online pokies pay out between 96% and 98% of the time, although wins may not necessarily cover or exceed the size of your wager.
You may have noticed that we’ve mentioned paylines a few times here. Paylines are sets of predefined lines along which three or more matching symbols may appear to create winning combinations. Examples of basic paylines on a five-reel, three-row pokie are all of Reel 1 or all of Row 2, and so forth. The number of paylines differs on different pokies. For example, the popular Medieval-times-inspired pokie, Avalon features 20 paylines. Meanwhile, some pokies, like the 243-ways-to-win options, have many more complicated paylines.
It is incredibly important to remember that the outcome of pokies spins is always random. There is no way to predict or control what the reels will do. So save your strategy for the tables. Vegas Palms ensures the unpredictability of its pokies by using a random number generator (RNG) to decide the outcome of each spin. There are ways, however, to maximise your budget and minimise the size of your losses - stick to budget, and set a realistic budget before you play and stick to it. Try to also keep your bets small - he smaller your bets, the smaller your potential losses and the more bets you can afford to make. This minimises risk while extending playing time. Try starting low and gradually increasing your bet size. Divide your budget by 100 (spins) to determine what you can afford to wager.
Sittman and Pitt, who developed an early precursor to today’s video pokies, are considered to be the original pokies trailblazers. However, first modern pokie machine was called the Liberty Bell and it was created by Charles Fey in the 1880s, which gained immense popularity over the next century and eventually evolved into the pokies you’ll find in casinos today. In the 1990s, when casino sites began to pop up online, pokies were the first thing they offered. Microgaming, the same developer that powers Vegas Palms Casino’s games, developed the first fully functional online gambling software in 1994.
