Regular Jackpot and a Progressive Jackpot
A jackpot is simply the highest amount you can win in a game. A special combination of symbols that is hard to get often gives you a win that is much higher than all other wins. Of course, exactly how much you win depends on how much you bet. The jackpot and all other winnings in the game are controlled by your bet. You get a slot machine’s maximum win when you win a jackpot, and have made as big a bet as you can make, according to the rules.
If a slot machine or slot has a progressive jackpot, it means that everyone who plays the game at one or more linked casinos contributes to building up a jackpot that does not have a maximum ceiling, and thus can be extremely large.
Coin value and stake level, how does it work?
One of the things that makes slot machines and slots so popular at online casinos is that you can choose how much you want to play for. Everything from really small to very large stakes are possible. You choose the bet level by deciding how many coins you want to bet and by deciding how much a coin should be worth in the currency you are playing with.
What does the term rtp mean?
The abbreviation rtp stands for return to player. It is about how much you as a player can expect to get back in the form of winnings from a certain game. All slot machines have an rtp value and it is expressed as a percentage. The average is just over 96% and that’s how much you get back on average in the long run if you’re neither lucky nor unlucky when you play.
What is the difference between high and low volatility?
Slot machines have a payout schedule, an algorithm that controls how much and how often you can win. The rtp value can be said to be part of this algorithm, but it is the volatility that determines how the winnings are distributed and how often you win. High volatility means that you can win large amounts but you don’t get as many smaller wins, compared to if you chose a slot machine with low volatility which, on the other hand, gives more wins but not as high big wins. Which one prefers is a matter of taste.
