Types of Mobile Slots
There are two main types of mobile optimized online slots Australia available on the market today, three reel slots and five reel or Video slots. Three reel slots are the more traditional type that old players will recognise. These boast only one payline and five spinning reels. The aim for all slots is to line up three or more identical symbols in a row on the reels. Three reel slots obviously have less chance of this happening than five reel slots.
Three reel slots also don’t often have all the added extras such as bonus rounds and free spins. Five reel or Video Slots are a different breed. The aim is still the same, to line up three or more identical symbols on the reels, but these slots can have up to 50 reels and numerous paylines. Symbols can be lined up from left to right, right to left or even diagonally. These slots also often have extras such as separate bonus rounds, special symbols, and free spins. The variety of slots available on mobile devices is not as great as on other platforms, but developers are coming out with new ones and converting old favourites to the mobile slot platform every day.
