3 reel slot games are generally what people picture when they hear the words, ‘slot machine’. These are the classic slot machines that have three columns, and you must match a combination of three icons across the board. Many of Bonus Slots’ 3 reel games offer two modes of playing. One in which you place a stake and try to get winning combinations, and one that rewards you a set dollar amount for no winning combinations. You can’t loose! You can decide which mode you would like to play before you spin, and you can switch between modes at any point during your play.

5 Reel Slots

5 reel slot games have five columns and three rows. These games allow you to select multiple lines to play and increase your chance of winning with each spin. When selected, a colorful line will trace across the board to show you which spaces must be filled to create the winning line. Of course, playing multiple lines means that the overall stake will be larger. For example, if you wager $5.00 per line and play 5 lines, the total stake will be $25.00 per spin. Though the stakes may be higher, the chances of winning and how much is won will be larger than those playing just one line.


Some of bonus slots machines have progressive jackpots. This means that as more players join these slots, more money is contributed to the jackpot. This can result in very large jackpots, often times going over the one million dollar mark. Keep in mind that the specific rules of how to win the jackpot depend on each game, and you should familiarize yourself with all the rules to ensure you are able to maximize your winnings.

Slots Tournaments

Bonus slots also offers you the chance to participate in slot tournaments. These are tournaments in which you sign up to face off with other online players. Everyone plays the same game with the same amount of credits. The person with the most credits at the end of the tournament wins a predefined prize. In some cases, prizes are offered all the way down to 200th place. So, if you’re just starting out or had a few unlucky spins, you’ll still have a good chance of claiming a prize. Also, many tournaments are free to join. It’s a great way to add a little friendly competition to slots.
