Hands down, online slots are the most favored gaming alternative on the net. The magic of computer programming, creative graphic design, and big payouts makes slots the top choice among regular online gamblers.
In general, there are two types of slots: Standard "3 Reel" machines and Progressive "Multi Line" machines. With the standard version, there is generally one pay line located in the center of the screen. The jackpots are smaller but one can play these machines for as little as a nickel. The most well known of this type of slot machine is the classic 7-7-7 reels that pay the jackpot on a successful spin.
Progressive slots are an entire entity of their own. Progressive slots offer lower payouts on more common winning spins (ie. bar-bar-bar or cherry) while the jackpot typically pays out an astronomical amount. Accordingly, the odds are stacked against the player, but these progressive machines do hit and payout.
Among the major software providers, Microgaming, Real Time Gaming, and Playtech, the big progressive machines are "Major Millions", "It's Good to Be Bad" and "Gold Rush" respectively.
