Generally, slot machines come in two basic types: mechanical and electronic. Mechanical slots are activated by a lever or button. Electronic slot machines are usually microprocessor-based. Electronic slot machines have the ability to offer advanced bonus rounds, interactive elements, and more varied video graphics. Some modern machines use microprocessors that assign different probabilities to symbols.
Mechanical slot machines generally have a seven-segment display. The pay table is usually listed on the machine’s face or in the help menu. The pay table lists the credits awarded when symbols line up on a pay line. In the case of an electronic slot machine, the pay table is displayed on the screen, usually above the area with wheels.
Aside from the pay table, most slot machines feature a “credit meter” that displays the number of credits earned and the amount of money on the machine. There is also a “skill stop” button between each reel. These buttons are designed to help the player prevent a malfunction.
Aside from the pay table, a slot machine’s bonus features typically correspond with the theme of the game. These features include special winning scenes on the LCD screen and energizing music. A bonus feature may also be associated with a jackpot. A bonus feature is generally the smallest of the three types of features mentioned above. In the U.S., slot machines are classified by the Gambling Commission. Most slot machines have one, three, or five pay lines. Some have as many as 1024 pay lines.
The slot game name is usually a given. The game may include a feature that is a nod to the classics. Some classic symbols include stylized lucky sevens, bells, and fruits. Other symbols are more complex. For example, the seven monkey has a seven pay line, but it also has monyet lucu tampilán.

The slot game name is usually accompanied by a technical description of the game. For example, a video slot machine generally uses stylized text and stylized graphics to indicate winning combinations. Often the video slot machine also uses a candle, which flashes to notify the operator that the machine is malfunctioning.
Aside from the pay table, the slot machine’s best feature may also be the most complicated. For example, a slot machine may be equipped with a tilt switch, which is a mechanism that would break the circuit if the machine were tilted. This feature predates Bally electromechanical slot machines, which had a similar feature. However, modern slot machines no longer have tilt switches.
The most important feature is probably the RTP, or return to player. A slot machine’s RTP is its theoretical maximum payout. This amount is usually set as a high limit, and the machine would be considered high risk if it exceeded the theoretical payout by more than a certain percentage.
