One Payline vs. Three Paylines
Most Slot Machines show Center line marked as a payline. To win you must line up a winning combination on that center payline and on that line only. But many machines show Three Paylines: at top, center, and bottom of window. This means that a winning combination lined up correctly on any of three Paylines will pay. The advantage of Three-Paying Machines is they give you more chances of winning and you can get double and triple pays if winning combinations appear on more than one payline together. The disadvantages are that payoffs are usually very small and top jackpot is paid only if you line up proper winning symbols in correct sequence on bottom, or third payline. Another disadvantage is that Three-Payline machines are always three-coin machines. Some machines offer five, or even eight paylines but, once again, you have to play five or eight coins per pull. Remember, great advice, play Two-Coin maximum, Three Reel, One Payline Slot Machines.
An increasing variety of machines now employ so-called Double-Up symbols on their reels. This symbol, usually circular or in shape of a diamond in a circle, and always bearing words "Double" across its face, can be very valuable to slot player. The payoff amount is Double and these Double Symbols also substitute forany other symbol. However, there are not many Double Machines available at casinos. The good Double-Up machines are normally found stuck somewhere in middle of a group of bad machines, or are relegated to some obscure part of casino.
