Slots: Guide for beginners and pros!
No other casino game offers as much variety as online slots. Whether you want to try your luck in Egyptian civilization, spin the reels of jackpot games or invite Fortuna, the goddess of luck, into your games with the Megaways and Cascades features, the world of online slots is full of varied and colourful games.
How to Play Slots
Slots are relatively simple to play:
- Choose the amount you want to bet,
- then press the button to start the game and begin spinning,
- and start spinning the reels.
You win when the correct symbols appear in a winning line after the reels have stopped. The position of each symbol is determined by a random number generator.
Five popular slot machine features
Here we present five popular features that you will find on the slot machines of our online casino mycasino:
Feature 1: Free Spins
Also known as Free Spins, Free Spins are one of the most popular features. This is because they offer players the opportunity to spin the reels for free, i.e. without having to put up their own money.
There are basically two types of free spins:
Free spins as a game feature: These free spins are an integral part of the slot machine. They are activated by the Scatter or Bonus symbols. On some slot machines, free spins are combined with multipliers. This means that all winnings from the free spins are multiplied, for example by a factor of 3. In some cases, a specific symbol is defined that allows you to multiply your winnings by 5 during the free spins.
Free spins as a promotion: This second type of free spins is not a slot machine feature in the strict sense of the word. They are free spins offered as part of certain promotions. A good example is our welcome offer with a 100% deposit bonus of up to 300 francs and 200 free spins to use on the Golden Rabbit slot machine. Regular visitors and loyal mycasino customers are also rewarded with free spins that are not subject to any wagering requirements.
Feature 2: Jackpots
Jackpot slots have a fixed or progressive jackpot. The fixed jackpot is the maximum amount that can be won.
The special feature of the progressive jackpot is that the prize pool increases with each bet made on the slot machine. On network jackpots in particular, such as the Nordic Jackpot, the more players bet, the larger the prize pool.
Feature 3: Megaways
Slot machines with the Megaways feature are characterised by a high number of winning possibilities. It is not uncommon to find games with up to 117,649 winning possibilities. This is possible because the number of reels and symbols that can appear on a reel varies on each spin.
Feature 4: Stunts
The Stunts feature allows you to increase your chances of winning in a single spin. Winning combinations are erased and replaced by new symbols. This increases your chances of forming other winning combinations.
Feature 5: Gamble
The Gamble feature, also known as the Risk Game, gives you the opportunity to increase your winnings. On many slot machines, you have to guess the colour of a face-down playing card. If you guess correctly, your winnings are increased. Conversely, if you get the answer wrong, you can lose your entire bet.
To find out what features are available on a slot machine, check the machine’s game rules. You will also find the payout table, information about the Wild and Scatter symbols, and the payout ratio (RTP) of the game. This figure shows what percentage of the bets are returned to the players on average over the long term.

Why demo play is more than just fun
The best way to get acquainted with the special features of a slot machine is to try the game in demo mode. You will play with play money and can spin the reels without risking losing money. Even though you can’t make withdrawals, the demo mode is more than just entertainment, as it allows you to test the full functionality of a slot machine.
All mycasino slots offer a demo mode to experience the game before you bet real money.
