What Is a Slot Pay Table?

A slot is a position within a sequence or series of events. It may refer to a specific spot on the reels where a particular symbol will land, or it can be an allocation of space in a computer memory or in a file system.

A slots’ pay table will display all the regular symbols within a game, alongside how much a player can win for landing (typically) 3, 4 or 5 matching symbols on a payline. It will also include any special symbols such as wild symbols, scatters or bonus symbols that can help players win big. Typically, these will be shown in a picture format and clearly display their payout values.

Another important aspect of a slots’ pay table is its number of paylines. While some traditional slots only have a single horizontal payline, many modern games feature multiple horizontal and vertical lines, which can increase the chances of landing a winning combination. It’s always a good idea to check out a slot’s pay table before you start playing, so you can understand how the symbols are arranged and how they have to land in order to trigger a win.

It never fails to amaze us when players jump straight into playing an online slot without first checking out the pay table! Usually, this can be found by clicking on an icon close to the bottom of the screen and will open a pop-up window with all the relevant information. Pay tables are normally laid out in a neat and easy-to-read way, with coloured boxes displaying how the symbols need to land to trigger a winning combination. In addition to the pay table, you’ll also find a section on any bonus features, such as free spins, Megaways or pick-style games, as well as their rules.
