By December 10, 2021No Comments

We know that a lot of you know and love to play our slot games. But, for the rest of you – newbies in the world of online casinos, we decided to make a quick starter guide. In the next passages, we will explain the basics and give you some tips on how to play online slots.

How Do Online Slots Work?

You have most certainly heard of slot games. Any movie with a casino theme must contain a segment in which slots are mentioned. There is no essential difference between slot and online slot games. Yet have you ever questioned yourself how do they function?

Every online slot game uses a Random Number Generator (RNG) system. This system creates random sequences every millisecond of the day. Every time a player clicks spin, the RNG produces a new random series of numbers.

Moreover, online slots have no memory, which means that no tracker is in place to record a player’s wins and losses.

Slot Machine Basics for Beginners

Now, it is time to introduce you to some of the basics of slot machines. There are a few fundamentals that you should know if you want to play with us at the Casino Brango.


Every slot machine contains reels. Reels come in series, and they are always odd in number. Mostly, machines have three, five, seven, or even nine reels. On every one of them are different symbols or icons.

When do you win money? After the reels spin, if they stop and align in a pattern that is a winning combination on one or more paylines, there is a chance that you have won the prize.


Every slot machine has at least one payline. The number of paylines can go to several hundreds and beyond. What are paylines? They are, in fact, the rows going across the reels from left to the right.

Paylines can contain symbols that are in rows that fluctuate across the reels. On the other hand, symbols on the paylines can be all in the same row.


Symbols of the games are always related to the theme of the whole game. If you play to win, you want to see symbols align and make a winning combination across paylines.

For example, at Casino Brango you have a lot of slots with mythological themes, like the Egyptian Gold slot. So, the symbols of this slot are in that spirit and you can see the Ancient Egyptian icons as pyramids and the Scarab.

Some symbols have special properties. These properties can be free spins, scatters, wilds, and bonus symbols.

  • Free spins are usually offered if two or three designated free spin symbols appear on one turn
  • Wild symbols can substitute for other symbols and can be used to complete the paylines
  • Scatters work in a variety of ways, but usually, they have an effect on the start of bonus rounds and the ability to win free spins
  • Bonus symbols are, most often, introduction into the bonus round

A jackpot is a large prize that is usually accumulated until it is won by the player. If you want to get the maximum payout on a progressive slot machine, you need to make a maximum bet. Mostly, the higher the jackpot, the less often a machine pays off.

Payout table

The payout table is your source of information when you play an online slot. The payout table tells you what combination of symbols results in you going to the bonus round, hitting a winning combination, or capturing free spins.
