A Slots Quiz From Gamingquiz

OK, Class, it’s test time. I have created this quick test for novice and veteran slot players.
I offer up this quiz in the expectation that all slot players will forever hear the sound of ‘raining coins’.

Let’s get started…

1) What is an RNG?
A. Really Nice Gambling?
B. Random Number Generator?
C. Right Number Gaming?

B. Random Number Generator: a computer chip placed inside each slot that is programmed to generate multiple combinations of symbols and payouts. A selection is picked randomly, thus determining the final outcome. A busy little drone.

2) What are the three types of slots?
A. Basic, Progressive and Bonus slots?
B. Red White & Blue 7’s?
C. Flat Tops, Megabucks and Double Diamonds?

A. The three types of slots are basic, (aka straight slots or ‘flat-tops’) that have a constant jackpot. Progressives with an ever-changing jackpot and the latest gaming trend, bonus video slots that offer a bonus round for extra winnings. Although the RNG runs all three types, there are different playing strategies for each type.

3) What is a multiplier slot?
A. Slot that has multiple graphics and symbols?
B. Pays more for more coins played on certain winning combinations?
C. Multiplies your win no matter how many coins played?

B. Stated simply, the more coins played, the better the winning payouts. Particular symbol payouts, as per slot schedule, are multiplied by number of coins played. This can mean the difference between a 2-coin payout and a 10-coin payout for max. coin in play. So, 1 bar, 2 bars, 3 bars–oh yeah!

4) What is a nudge slot?
A. Wild Symbol combination pays?
B. A certain combination nudges you to the Bonus round?
C. Paying Symbol dropping up or down on center payline for win?

C. Come on baby, drop that paying symbol down and give mama a big win.
It could be a basketball, diamond, cherry or wild symbol. You just need a little nudge up or down to that center payline and you are in the money.

5) What’s a short win?
A. A small jackpot?
B. A win just before you are running out of money?
C. A large win with a small cash outlay?

C. This happens all the time. A large jackpot is hit with a minimal cash outlay.
15 bucks gets you $1000’s. Now that’s a long win on a short chance.
Take the money and run!

6) What is “flying solo”?
A. Gambling alone?
B. Slot Players who play one coin only.
C. Only winner of a progressive jackpot?

B. I call them ‘onesies’. Slot players who play only one coin. I know I advocate wager management, but this is wager suicide. I suggest you drop down a denomination and play max. coins where at least you are in the running for the top jackpot without the ‘slot bends’ of missing out because you should have played just one more coin. The only exception here is the bonus multi-line slots.

7) EASY POINT. What’s ‘Call Attendant’?
A. Large cash hand-paid jackpot?
B. Machine is broken, needs maintenance?
C. My slot club card points have reached their limit?

A. It’s party time! Big time payday with hundreds peeled off into your sweaty, winning palms. All casino players should get this one right and truly enjoy the experience.
