Five Reel Slots

The slot machine has come a long way since the original five-drum versions were invented over 100 years ago. The games underwent many improvements and changes over the years, the most popular being the invention of the five reel slot. The five-reel slot did not evolve out of the original five-drum version; instead it was an addition to the first three-reel machines. (Auto mechanic Charles Fey later invented the one armed bandit, which replaced the drums with three reels.) The five-reel variation is the most commonly-played slot because the games offer a wide variety of betting options.

With the added number of reels, game creators have more options. More interesting combinations can be added that will pay, giving the game more variety. You win more often but it costs more to play. Five reel slots’ pay line numbers will vary with the game, so make sure you want to make 20 times the bet if you’re betting max bet. Most new games have 20-40 pay lines available. These games can require a bigger bankroll than three reel slots do.

These games also have bonus options, multipliers, free spins and huge progressive machines. Multipliers are special symbols that will complete a winning combination and, at the same time, multiply the win. The size of the multiplier will vary depending on the game. You can even multiply a jackpot if you’re on the right machine; some bonus multiplier games have that option. Free spin options work much the same. If the right symbols hit you get to spin a set amount of spins without having to bet.

Many of these games have a theme. The slot symbols will be connected to the name of the game and bonus rounds. For instance, Princess Jewels has different stones and jewellery as symbols. These games are meant to appeal to a particular player who would rather look at jewellery over pirate symbols, or vice versa. Most video online slots are five-reel games with added levels of play. They’re the latest thing in slot evolution, with ridiculous pay line numbers and bonus levels where you play a round in a different game for extra credits.

Five reel slots have been the apex of online slots for many years now. But online games are finally moving past these games with seven-reel slots. We can expect the five-reel games to be around for a long time; people still play the original three-reel games all the time. Good luck.
