IF YOU’RE NOT SURE WE’RE HERE TO HELP!
In 1891, Sittman and Pitt of Brooklyn developed a gaming machine that was the precursor to the modern slot machine. It was based on the game of poker, and immediately became incredibly popular. These machines soon began to make their way into most American bars. The original “one-armed bandit” was invented in 1887 by Charles Fey of California. Yet another early slot machine paid out the winner in the form of fruit-flavoured gums, with pictures of the flavours represented as symbols on the reels! The modern day ‘fruit’ symbols, that have proved so popular, were derived from these machines. Don’t worry; you can expect a lot more than gum when you play slots at Fortune Lounge!

Simply Spinning: 3-Reel Slots are the old-style slots with the ‘bar and cherries’ popular with the more conservative player. You guessed it! As the name suggests these games only have three reels. The magic is in their simplicity!
The ‘Reel’ Deal: Bonus Video Slots are slot machines that have a bonus feature/s. If you’re the kind of player who wants to flirt with fortune in style, video slots are for you! They have more than three reels and are characterised by imaginative themes, superior animation and graphical entertainment. The objective is to spin the reels so that the symbols form winning combinations on the payline. The payout is dependent on the winning combination formed. You must bet the maximum number of coins per spin to qualify to play the Bonus Feature. These games offer many thrills per minute, so strap yourself in for the ride of your life.
Bonus slot games have several spinning wheels marked with symbols. Each time the ‘spin’ button is pressed; these wheels spin and come to rest with a random selection of symbols. You will earn credits by hitting a winning combination on a payline. Depending on the slot, there can be various numbers of play lines.
You will be paid out according to the PAYOUT SCHEDULE of the particular slot game you are playing. A payout schedule is a table illustrating what combinations of reel symbols are valid winning combinations and how much they pay out. Winnings are paid out on the highest combination of each enabled payline only. That means if a winning combination appears on a payline that you have not enabled (wagered for) you will not receive the payout for that particular combination. The more coins you wager, the more paylines are enabled. So make sure you’ve familiarised yourself with this important info to avoid disappointment.
