    Rules of the game

    To view the rules of a game you have to open the relevant game and click on the question mark/ i / the gear wheel. In order to read the rules no money needs to be transferred and you don’t need to play the game.  The rules of the game are explained in detail. To give you a basic overview of different types of games a few will be explained as follows: 

    Rules for Casino Blackjack

    Blackjack is a game where a player plays against a dealer. The aim of the game is to get as close as possible to a card value of 21 without exceeding it. Winnings in Blackjack are paid out 1:1. If a player bets for example 10 Euro he will receive 20 Euro for a winning hand, 10 EUR is the bet and 10 EUR the win. If the first two cards a player holds are aBlackjack (one Ace and a card with a value of 10), the payout is 3:2, this means a 10 Euro bet generates a 25 Euro win. Further explanations can be found when clicking on a game and the question mark which will forward you to the rules of the game. 

    Roulette

    Roulette consists of two components – the Roulette table and the Roulette wheel. Players can bet on different fields of the table: numbers 1-36, the fields Red and Black, Even or Odd as well as Manque (numbers 1-18) and Passe (19-36). To bet the chips are placed on the relevant fields of the Roulette table. When all players have placed their bets, the croupier throws the ball into the turning wheel. You win if the ball lands on a number you have bet on. When the wheel stops all winnings are paid out. For further explanations select your game and click on the question mark which forwards you to the rules of the game.

    How to read pay tables

    Pay tables come in all forms and designs. They are easy to read and include a lot of example pictures for a quick grasp of the basic information at one glance. They can be only one page or a few pages, depending on the complexity of the game.

    They also include leaderboards and prizes in case this slot games are part of a tournament.

    Game odds and winnings

    Modern slot machines use an RNG (random number generator) to determine what number, symbol shows up on your screen. It does not use any form of memory to determine an outcome of specific results. All different combinations of numbers on each reel are random and re generated independently. So across three, four, or even greater numbers of reels are independent of each other when the symbols or numbers are determined.

    When winning a jackpot or any pay line it is a purely random part of the gameplay, as slot machines generate hundreds of random numbers per minute.

    All the slot machine algorithms include a certain payback percentage which is taken into account when generating the numbers. This payback percentage is called RTP (Return To Player) which describes how often a slot machine offers a winning spin. The RTP differs from slot game to slot game, however on overage it is around 97%.

    Return to player (RTP)

    The RTP describes the percentage the slot machine will pay back the player in the long run. For example: if you make one hundred 1€ bets on a machine which has a 90% RTP you can expect to get 90€ back in wins over time.

    Hit Frequency (HF)

    The term Hit Frequency is used in casinos to describe how often a slot machine will hit on a winning combination. For instance: if a machine’s hit frequency is 9% it means that 9% of the time a winning combination is hit. Nonetheless a player can bet on multiple win lines each spin which will trigger wins, this will let the player feel a though he wins more often. Which is not the case as the winning combination are random at any time. The hit frequency varies throughout the games and can be from low 3% up to 45%.

    A machine with a HF of only 3% might sound unappealing but offers the player less but bigger wins whereas a high HF gives out more but small wins.

    So, the “Hit Frequency” outlines how often, on average, a winning combination arises. “Return to player” marks the percentage of all the money wagered that a machine will return over time.

    Stakes

    The amount of money you can wager for one round in slot games varies from game to game and from provider to provider. The minimum amount is on average between 0,01 euros and 0,20 euros.

    The maximum amount to wager for one spin in a slot game varies from game to game and from provider to provider. The maximum amount is 20 euros.

    Volatility

    When applied about slot machines the word volatile refers to the risk the game holds. It describes how often and how much you can expect to win during a playing session on that particular slot game. In some games you can go a long time without small wins or wins at all but when you win the amount is usually higher. Those games are known as high volatility slots. The opposite counts for low volatility slots. In those you hit winning pay lines more frequently with a more but small winnings.

    High Volatility

    High volatility slots hold a higher risk. In those slots you can go a long time without a win, however when you finally hit a win the sum is much higher. This game is best suited for player who like the idea of winning big amount of money, even though it doesn’t happen that frequently.

    Low Volatility

    Low volatility slots equate to lower risk. The chances of hitting a pay line are much higher and happen very frequently thought out a play session. However, the winnings are small. This game is suited for player how like the thrill and don’t want to go numerous spins without a win.

    Pay lines or Win lines

    In simple terms a pay, line is a line in a slot game on which a payout will be awarded. The winnings, however, are based on your stake and on the winning combinations. The number of pay lines in a slot varies between games and providers. Any number is possible between 1 and 100 pay lines in one single game. Only when hitting one or more pay lines payouts can be earned.

    In every game, even before you spin one time you can have a look at all the pay lines available in the game rules and descriptions. Those can be found when clicking on the questions mark or I in one of the corners of you screen.

    Pay lines can be all over the reels, going simply straight across, take a zigzag shape, be horizontal, vertical or diagonal. It doesn’t matter which pay line you hit; they will always pay if you bet on them.

    Some game offer adjustable pay lines, while other games feature fixed ones. Adjustable games allow you to choose one or several pay lines to bet on, while on fixed pay line slots you ought to bet on them all.

    Jackpots

    A Jackpot is the biggest win possible for a single spin in a slot game. The way you can win a jackpot is by hitting five “wilds”, or designated, symbols on a bet pay line. Some kinds of jackpots are collected through crowdfunding, meaning that the amount of the jackpot has been collected through the bets places by all the players.

    There are designated slot games for jackpots. In these slots the individual game rules, as well as jackpot rules, are explained. By clicking on the questions mark, the “i” or the gear wheel the rules will open up.  Jackpots also use RTP, the jackpot RTP is mostly identical to the game RTP. Jackpot games can also include various jackpots i.e. a mini jackpot, a huge jackpot and a mega jackpot. Those different kids differ in the amount which is paid out when hitting the winning symbols. The maximum reward limit that can be given by a Jackpot may not exceed the amount of five hundred thousand (500,000) Euro. Should the Jackpot be higher than this sum then the excess that has been collected is transferred to another Jackpot. 

    There are different kinds of jackpots:

    Progressive Jackpot Slots

    The basic idea behind this is that every time a player spins and plays the game a percentage of the bet towards into the cash prize. This kind of jackpot is quite famous and results in a lot of bets a day and therefore a huge cash prize. When viewing the jackpot amount consider that there might be a slight delay as the amount is updated every few seconds, the delay normally runs between 3 and 30 seconds.

    • Sometimes the prize gets too high and it gets harder to win the jackpot. A “must drop” feature helps to set an amount of money which indicated how high the prize can get before it should be dropped.


    Fixed Jackpot Slots

    Fixes jackpots are also known as “non-progressive jackpots”. The jackpot amount doesn’t chance if a lot of people play the slot or not. The prizes and the upper limits have been decided by the provider. Unlike progressive jackpots, no matter how much time lies between the hitting of the jackpot the amount of prize money won’t change as it has been fixed beforehand.

    Local Jackpots

    Local Jackpots work just as progressive jackpots, but with a twist. Local jackpots are just for localized games. This means that the amount of the jackpot can only be increased by bets in a particular casino.

    Usually bets from up to ten (10) games collect a part of each bet for the jackpot prize. The number of games might vary from casino to casino. But the more games participate in the accumulation of the prize the higher the jackpot sum.
