In the world of online casino gambling, slot games are almost like their own solar system.

Let’s look closely at the different kinds of slot games, for example, at YukonGold Casino, that people can play today. There may be more than one of these going on simultaneously. For example, a single game could be a mobile, cascade, or progressive slot, but each of these terms has its own meaning.

Classic Slots 

Even though the rows of singing slot machines in Las Vegas casinos may seem new, slot machines have been around for almost 130 years. These early machines were all analog, and you could usually only find them in the back rooms of bars. Their reels usually had fruit symbols and lucky sevens.

Video slots are the exact opposite of old-fashioned slots with reels. Video slots do not have mechanical reels that spin; instead, they use animation and a digital button instead of a gaming lever to make it look like there are three, four, or five reels. Almost all modern games, even those called “classics,” fit into this group.

Mobile Slots

The days when the only way to play slots was to go to a real-life casino are long gone. Even though there are still plenty of brick-and-mortar casinos with a nice selection of slots, almost all games today can also be played online.

Also, thanks to HTML5, almost every game can be played on a home computer and on a smartphone or tablet while on the go. This is what “mobile” slots mean.

Cascade Slots

In the last few years, an exciting trend in cascade titles has caught on.

Traditional reels only spin once per bet; if you win, you only get one payout. Cascade games, on the other hand, offer more ways to win. When you win, the symbols you win disappear, and new ones fall in their place (usually from above). In this way, one bet can lead to more than one win.

Cascade Tips:

  • Gems may go on any square or gem.
  • The side jewels are the toughest to match, so play them first.
  • Before placing gems, consider where to put many gems of the same hue on your reel. If your early spin movements do not offer much board space or possibilities to play gems, try making other moves first.

Slots with Virtual Reality

VR slots take modern visual design to a new level. They offer an immersive experience by using top-of-the-line VR equipment to take gamblers from wherever they are to a world full of sights and sounds and made with a lot of care.

3D Slots

3D games are somewhere between video slots and virtual reality. These next-gen games look much more modern than the average slot machine, with a lot of attention paid to details and graphics, but you do not need the best VR gear to play them.

Because the player does not have to spend money on them, they are easier for the average gamer to play than VR games, while still making better use of what modern animation can do. A good 3D slot machine can be just as immersive as a 3D movie with the proper setup.
