Online Slots at Lucky Creek

In the late 19th century, a man named Charles Fey began working on what would become the world’s first slot machine. Nicknamed the Liberty Bell, Fey’s machine had three spinning reels containing a total of five symbols – horseshoes, diamonds, spades, hearts, and Liberty Bell, which is where the machine’s name came from. This machine proved to be so popular that other manufacturers began to copy Fey’s original designs and would, many years later, lead to the invention of the world’s first video slot machine in 1976. The rest, as they say, is history.

The fruit machine, as it would become known, is now one of the world’s most enduring casino games and has become a firm favorite with online casino goers. Of course, these jazzed-up, real money online slot machines might feature reels, rows, and symbols similar to that of their predecessors but that’s where the similarities end. Online slots are the backbone of online casinos the world over, delivering sizzling spins and wins to players everywhere, as well as the opportunity to win big on a relatively small bet. Online slots have much higher pay-outs (higher return to player [RTP]) than their land-based counterparts, making them a firm favorite with online casino players. Lucky Creek offers free and real money slots games.

Real Money Online slots

Real money online slots are relatively easy to play but each game comes with its own set of instructions, depending on the game’s developer. Some common terms you should familiarize yourself with, so that you can get the most out of your time on the reels, are:

  • Auto-Spin – A feature that enables you to pre-set a number of spins at a set bet amount. Just hit the button and let the game do the work for you.
  • Bonus Features – Special additions to a online slot machine that come in many forms – Free Spins, Wilds, Scatters, Mini Games, Bonus Games etc. Each game comes with its own Bonus Features and you can check this information by clicking on the ‘i’ or ‘Info’ section while you’re playing the game.
  • Maximum and minimum bet – All real money online slots have a minimum and maximum bet amount.
  • Multiplier – A bonus feature that will multiply your winnings by the multiplier amount you have won e.g. a 10x multiplier on a winning combo that pays $10 will give you 10x the amount ($100).
  • Return to Player (RTP) – A percentage amount that outlines how much money bet on any game by players will be returned as winnings over a given timeframe.
  • Pay-out – That jingle of coins as you strike it lucky on your favorite slot! Every game includes a pay table which will tell you how much each symbol is worth and how much you can win when you land specific symbol combinations on the reels.
  • Reels – The game area where the symbols spin. When the reels stop spinning, the way the symbols land will dictate how much you spin. Some slots have five reels, some have three, but they all work in the same way.
  • Scatter – A symbol that doesn’t need to be in a set combination (payline or cluster) on the reels to award its prize. As the name implies, a Scatter will land anywhere on the reels and sometimes pays out a certain amount or may trigger a fun Bonus Feature.
  • Wild – This symbol is one to keep an eye out for because it can replace other symbols that are in play in the game and might give you a winning combo!
