Common terms in a slot machine game


At Corona Casino Phu Quoc, slot machine is rated as the most attractive one, with more than 1000 modern machines. To successfully conquer this “one-handed robbery”, it is crucial to master the terms. 

Slot machine is one of the most popular games in casinos at present. Despite being the latest of the casino games, slot machine still attracts a huge number of players thanks to its simple rules, has many variations and big winning probability. Slot machine is also considered the most suitable game for those who are new to casino subjects for the first time.

Slot machine – the leading game worth trying in every casino around the world

In addition to understanding the rules of play and the variations accepted at each casino, knowing the terms that frequently appear in the game is also the “background knowledge” that players need to equip themselves before joining. At present, there are many pages summarizing the terms related to this slot machine game, but most of them just stop at the basic level, which will cause a lot of confusion for players when “joining” directly. Corona Casino Phu Quoc offers the most complete version of terms, hoping to help players have fun moments with slot machine in “Las Vegas of Vietnam”.

Bonus: This feature appears when players make certain combinations that are pre-installed in the machine or obey the rules of the game (rules will vary by casino). Bonuses for each game are also not fixed and varied, for example, some bonus games will be free spins, bonuses or special features like circle spins, etc.

Candle: Is the light bulb on top of the machine. When there is a problem with the machine (like failure, big win, withdrawal of money, etc.) this light will light up. If players see a flashing light icon, they should press the “service” button or the “help” button on the computer to call staff. Note: Do not leave your seat (it is possible that your money will be played by others or withdrawn if you leave).

Coin hopper: This is an “odd coin box” when the customer withdraws money from the machine. When other players press the button “cash out” (withdraw money), this part will “hit” the coin in the tray below. The slot game machines are now no longer available, instead when pressing the cash out button, it will show a barcode paper with the amount to be exchanged at the counter.

Credit meter (“virtual” money counter): When you put money into the slot game, this amount will be displayed as a virtual number on the machine. The place that displays this amount is called the credit meter. Usually, it is a frame that shows the amount of money on the game (either slot machine or video game).

Parts of a slot machine 

Free Spin: Free spins are bonus spins given to players. When they receive free spins, players do not need to spend money on these spins. To get this type of prize, players must draw a certain series of pictures (usually the pictures with the word Scatter or Wild) with 3 or more pictures. Sometimes, the free spins can also trigger other free spins. Therefore, if you are lucky, you can get the machine “rewarded” for lots of free spins.

Hand pay (cash payment): When you press the “cash out” button on the slot machine, a check with the code and the money will be popped out. Players take this flyer and return to the counter to exchange for money. If you do not want to change money immediately but continue to play, you should put the check back into another machine and continue to play (the amount on the check will be displayed in the credit meter when players place it). Hand pay sometimes also refers to major prizes (such as minor, major or mega) whose value exceeds the pay frame of the machine. At this point, players must call the operator and take note.

Hopper fill slip (check added to cash drawer): This is a sheet of paper with history of adding coins to the machine (when the machine runs out of money to pay customers). This sheet will record the amount and number of times plus time that the staff puts money into the machine.

Low Level / Slant Top (lying machine) and Stand Up or Upright (standing machine): The first will be a machine with a seat for players. The second type must stand to play.

MEAL book (Machine entry authorization log): This is a file on the computer that records the logins made by the operator of the slot machine.

Multiplier: Is the coefficient to the winning amount. For example, if you win VND 1 million, if you activate Multiplier x5, x10, x20, you will receive VND 5 million, 10 million and 20 million, respectively.

Optimal play: Number of% refunded to players. When players adopt the best strategy to avoid a big loss, there is usually a small refund (which can be seen as a commission).

Flexible redemption with many incentives is a great reason for players to choose to try slot machine

Payline (cash flow): Here are pictures of winning examples (usually shown on either side of the game frame). Basic machines usually have 9 different types of paylines. At present, video game slot machines often have hundreds of different paylines. They have various shapes (e.g. horizontal, vertical, oblique, triangle, zigzag, etc.). Players just need to come up with a picture like the payline to win.

Rollup (count up): Rollup is a process in which players are wining a certain cash line. For example, a bonus of VND 1 million will count from VND 1 to VND 1 million with funny pictures and sounds.

Short pay (short payout): This is the process by which the slot game machine will pay customers, but not enough money is left in the slot. This missing amount will be paid by hand pay or the operator will “add” money into the coin hopper.

Scatter symbol: The scatter symbol must have at least 2 (with another random image) to complete the payline in the game slot. If there are more than 2 pictures, the bonus value will be higher. The scatter symbol may trigger a certain type of bonus (e.g. free spin or reward x2 winnings). On some machines, the Scatter symbol and the Wild symbol can be the same. 

Taste (reimbursement): This word refers to a small amount of money that the slot game machine pays players (to keep players sitting on the machine). For example, a player who plays all 100k will be refunded 10k.

Scatter Symbols and Wild Symbols are “golden symbols” that players always want to get when playing with slot machines

Tilt (machine error): Joystick-style slot machines usually have a tilt switch. When the machine fails, it often emits a very long or continuous noise. The lever machine is no longer popular today, but when some things are not tight (e.g. screen door, gear, out of cash paper, etc.), the machine still makes a sound. And the mechanic calls it Tilt.

Weight count: This is a significant word about the number of coins taken out of the slot machine. Then, the house’s coin counting team will count all these coins. The term “hard count” means to count coins in a bank or casino. If the amount of coins is large, they use a programmable scale to calculate the paper money. However, the term is only common in casinos that use coins in the circulating monetary system to redeem rewards (such as the United States). 

Wild Symbol: In a deck of cards, the Joker card will correspond to this Wild symbol. This is a symbol that can replace any symbol in a slot game. The Wild symbol can replace any type, the more Wild symbols is, the more likely players will win. 

The number of terms for the slot machine is quite large and can make it difficult for players to memorize the first few turns. However, the staff of Corona Casino Phu Quoc is always on duty 24/7 and ready to answer all questions from players.
