Multi Spin Pokies At Playtech Online Casinos
August 19, 2016
In the Playtech games menu you will find Multi Spin Pokies listed under the category of Video Pokies. These are special kinds of pokies in which a number of single line three reels sets spin simultaneously. There are five titles on offer that include Ocean Princess, Triple Profits, Ugga Bugga, Goblin's Cave and Tropic Reels. The Multi Spin Pokies can be played at Playtech online casinos like Omni Casino and Mansion Casino. This article uses Ocean Princess to explain the mechanism of Multi Spin slots. The other Multi Spin Slots operate in a similar manner, though they have their distinct features.
After the Ocean Princess Multi Spin online pokie loads, you first select the coin size from AU$0.05 to AU$1.00. You can wager up to 5 coins per payline. Ocean Princess online pokie consists of five independent single line reel sets and all five have to be played by default. Each is referred to as a payline. If you select the largest coin size of AU$1.00 and go for the maximum bet of 5 coins per line, then your stake per line will be AU$5.00 and your total bet per spin will be AU$25.00.
You start the game by clicking the Spin button. First only the bottom line spins and comes to rest. You have the option to hold any number of the three reels by clicking the Hold button below the reels. The symbols in the held reels are repeated in the remaining four lines. If any combination symbols pay out as per the given pay table, then those symbols are automatically held. In Ocean Princes, for example, the turtle and the wild crown are such symbols. You then click the Spin button again. The reels that are not held spin independently in each line and come to rest. The final combinations in each line are matched against the pay table and the payouts are made accordingly. Discerning online casino players will recognise the similarities between Multi Spin Pokies and multi-hand video poker games.
Ocean Princess has a mermaid theme. The symbols include sea creatures like turtle, sea horse, crab and starfish and anchor as well. Most symbols appear in three different colours. Like symbols in the same colour pay out more, but like symbols in different colours also pay out. The payouts are multipliers of the line bet. For the top payout combination of three crowns the normal payout is 250 times the line bet. But with 5 coins it is enhanced to a jackpot payout of 1,000 times the line bet.
