All of our games are available as demo versions when you sign up so that you can test out the slots. When you feel comfortable with the feature bonuses, then you can switch to real play.
How to Play Online Slots
Most slots you’ll come across have a basic set of instructions on how to play that slot: all you need to do to play a slot is press “Spin” and you’re off. Online slots don’t require much skill, making them great for all players. Another reason slots are popular is that they’re 100% down to chance.
The basic aim of most slots is landing matching symbols on a pay-line (or other mechanic like a Cluster) to trigger a win. The size of the win will depend on which symbols you’ve landed on the reels and you’ll be able to find the pay-outs in the pay-table).
Game developers have come up with new ways to add more thrill to the slot experience, with features like bonus rounds and free spins that have become widespread.
Mobile Slot Demos
You can play many of our mobile slots as demo games too once you have signed up at Wombat Casino. Play Cygnus, for example, click on the image for more information.
Try the Dead World slot on your mobile device for example. That´ll creep you out! It´s a zombie slot that has been optimised across all devices, so you can go after them zombies on your phone, on your tablet, on your laptop and on your desktop. They´ve nowhere to hide!
Mobile Slots Features
Some of the newer casino games have been designed so that you can play them in portrait mode on your device. This was implemented after feedback from players that they liked to play one-handed rather than two-handed in landscape mode.
ELK and NetEnt are good at this design.
You can still play 3-reel, one pay-line slots with cherries, BARS, 7s, melons and lemons spinning around, but the real growth area has been with the 5-reel video slots with their high-definition graphics and exciting features, wilds and bonus rounds.
Most of our games allow you to choose between multiple pay-lines or Ways to Win. In the old days, the centre line used to be the pay line. These days games can have up to fifty pay lines, 243 Ways to Win or even more on Megaways games (117,649!). This gives more opportunities to win, but remember you need to pay for those extra lines!
Wild symbols will stand in for other symbols to create winning combos. These days, wilds can stack or expand across entire reels. They can even “trail” on some games. This is an area that continues to see a lot of innovation.
Scatters are symbols that trigger bonus rounds, and you usually have to land three or more to trigger this feature on any given slot. Scatter symbols may be seen as harder to land than lower-paying symbols but when they land, you’ll know it!
Once you have triggered the bonus, you may enter a side game with free spins, increased multiples on your wins or pick-and-click games. The variety here is almost endless. Free spins are common in today’s online casino games, which is great for players!
There is also another very popular feature: Cascading Reels. Also called Avalanche Wins Slots, or Tumbling / Rolling Reels, depending on the designer. When you make a win, the winning symbols explode into a cloud of dust and new symbols drop into their place, potentially giving you a whole series of winning combinations off one spin. Nice!
There are tons of different online slot bonus features in modern slots, allowing players to win everything from free spins to huge jackpots. It’s great to see innovation in this area of online slots, and it looks like we’re only going to be getting more.
One example would be the Dracula slot. This game has stacked wilds and a bat feature that changes symbols at random, for example. Then there’s the Playboy Slot which is a 243 Ways to Win game that gives you a choice of four different bonus games when you trigger the free spins. And Miss Midas can turn adjacent symbols into gold.
Here at Wombat Casino, we have hundreds of online slots, you can choose from classic slots with three reels, five-reel video slots, fruit machine style slots, jackpot slots and more! Below is a rundown of some of the most popular slots.
Three reel slots are some of the most popular slots around, these slots will give you that ‘retro’ feel. They’re very much no-frills slots usually, but that doesn’t stop them from being fun. They are getting harder and harder to find these days, as all of the development tends to be in the popular 5-reel video slot category, but if you prefer a simpler game there are some good options.
Lately, there has been something of a resurgence in this area, particularly from ELK Studios. They might look like 3-reel games when you fire them up but wait until you see all of the updated features. These are bright and shiny variations on a classic theme! Try Vegas Diamonds for example.
Types of Slots
If you are looking for where the innovation happens, then you’ll need to head for the five-reel slots games. We have a big selection of HD blockbuster titles- choose from ever-popular classics such as the Tomb Raider 2 slot to newer games like the Amazing Link Apollo that boast multiple bonus and wild features.
Jackpot slots have progressive jackpots that build over time as players feed money into the games here at Wombat Casino and at other casinos that feature the same games across a network.
A proportion of all bets go into a pool that increases in value until someone hits the jackpot and flushes it out. Choose from Mega Moolah, Stampede (with a Super Jackpot) or the Champions of Valhalla Jackpot game.
Megaways slots are easily the most popular slots around, and with 117,649 Ways to Win, we’re not surprised. This feature changed the online casino game, making all developers up their game.
Big Time Gaming is the company behind this feature and they have now been licensed by hundreds of slot makers to give their games the Megaways treatment.
Online Slots Based on Classic Fruit Machines
Some of our more popular games, like BarX Hot Spins, are based on the games that you might see down the pub. They’re easy to understand and fun to play.
Most Popular Online Slots
Here at Wombat Casino, you can play all of the most popular slots including 9 Pots of Gold, Book of Dead, Bonanza, Centurion and countless others. We’re also adding more games every week so make sure to come back and browse our featured slots.
Online slots can leave players with some questions, so here are some of our most frequently asked questions:
How do Free Spins Work? Free spins work differently on every slot, but the basic idea is that you ‘win’ free spins in a bonus game, allowing you to essentially play for free until those free spins run out. Slot designers add these features to offer the player more value for their money and add that little bit extra to the online slot experience.
What are the different Mechanics Available?
New slot mechanics come out all of the time. Think about it: back in the day, it was all 3 reel games with one pay-line. Now we have 100 pay-line games, 243 Ways to Win games, Cluster Pays slots like Rise of Olympus and Aloha!, Avalanche Wins games, you name it.
We include examples of the different setups here in our Slots Mechanics articles such as an explanation of the “Book of” slot mechanic which you will find in the menu.
What is the RTP? This is one of the most asked questions in the world of online slots. RTP stands for return to player, and this percentage will give you an average of how much you will return over long-term play. This means slots with higher RTP percentages are more attractive to players.
So that’s the weird and wonderful world of mobile slots and online games, my Wombat friends. There’s only one thing for certain: the new features and bonus tricks aren’t going to stop coming, so stay tuned.
