More about the slots games
To play slots, you must authenticate yourself with your responsible gaming Casino ID card, which you use to set personal daily and monthly loss and time limits on your gaming. The slot machines take banknotes and tickets, which you can exchange for money at the checkout desk or the money exchange machine. Our staff will be happy to answer any questions pertaining to the games and offer you advice on responsible gaming.

The payout realized for the total of our slots games amounted to 94.7% in the past twelve months. The results are based on random chance and, in certain games, partly on the players’ knowledge and skills. The odds of winning are calculated so that the players are paid an amount corresponding to the reported payout percentage on the average in the course hundreds of thousands or even millions of game rounds. However, during one game, the payout may deviate considerably either way from the long-term average payout. The shorter the game session, the bigger the deviation.

Feeding money and the concept of credit
The machines operate mainly on banknotes and tickets. In slots gaming, you will come across the concept of credit. The amount entitling you to play is shown as credits, in other words, value units. The value units vary from one machine to another, from one cent to two euros. For example, when you insert a 20-euro banknote into a machine where one credit equals 10 cents, you will get 200 credits.
Uniform buttons in all slot machines
You can play slots by using the buttons, but some of the machines also have the touch screen feature, enabling you to also play the game by touching on the slot machine screen. The machines use English as the default language. However, gaming is made easier by the fact that the buttons are the same for all the slot machines. Thus, the MAX BET/MAX CREDITS button will mean the same thing in all the machines, i.e., you play with the biggest possible bet. The CASH/COLLECT/PRINT TICKET button enables you to cash out your funds from the slot machine. By pressing BET you can select the number of credits you wish to use, and that way, you can raise or lower the bet for each game. Moreover, there are buttons that are game-specific. For example, the poker machines have the HOLD button, which you can press to hold a card, and the video reel machines have LINE buttons, meant for picking the lines.
The concept of lines explained
The traditional reel machines generally only have one play line, whereas the newer video reel machines may have up to 9-100 lines available for simultaneous play (in Multiway games 243, 720, and 1,024). The number of lines will affect the size of the bet in such a case. The bet (credit value) is always line-specific, so if you play, for example, five lines at a time, the bet will also be five times as big. On the other hand, the more lines you have selected, the bigger chances of winning you have. Likewise, the size of the winning will increase along with the bet – in other words, everything is relative.
The slot machine announces your winnings as credits, too, and the winnings are paid out as tickets. If you hit a bigger prize, it will be paid out to you by the staff.
The concept of bonus rounds and the alternatives
Bonus games vary from one slot machine to another. They may include so-called free games or entirely independent bonus games. Bonus games are triggered by a specific series of symbols in the machine. Free games mean that a player gets a given number of free games that do not cost anything to the player but that still accumulate the prize. The free games start and end automatically, and the players cannot affect their course. As regards bonus games, they give the players a chance to affect the game, as the bonus games usually require the players to choose between numbers and pictures. The bonus games are also free, but they accumulate winnings, just like the free games. Some of the video reel machines and poker machines offer a double up option, allowing the players to try to double the prize amount.

Reserving slot machines
We do not accept responsibility for any money left in the slot machines, and slot machines can only be reserved by the staff. Our wish is that as many customers as possible could experience the joy of gaming, so playing one machine at a time is preferable.
In the event of a malfunction
Since the slot machines are electromagnetic devices, they may occasionally display minor problems. If you notice a problem in how the slot machine works, you should stop gaming immediately and contact the staff. The situation cannot be solved if you continue gaming. A potential malfunction will annul any information displayed on the slot machine screen. In the event of a dispute, the casino’s decision is complied with.
