Slot descriptions

Types of Slots

On a progressive jackpot, essentially players are filling up a communal jackpot. They still usually play for mini-jackpots. Progressives are quite often linked in with other casinos who use the same provider.  

Most of the slots that you will see at Knockout are multi-win line slots.

They are all video slots and have bonus rounds also.

You can read a bit more about these on confluence.

 

Symbols

Wild symbols are like the joker in a deck of cards - they can be used with any symbols on the reels to create winning combinations.

The scatter symbol is basically a key to unlocking various fun bonus features designed within a slot game. Unlike symbols that have to be lined up on a pay line to win anything, the scatter just has to appear on the reels to open up free spins.

Bonus Round & Free Spins

Bonus Rounds & Free Spins

Most online video slots consist of at least one bonus round feature. These can come in a variety of styles and cover a wide range of formats, ranging from little to no player interaction to some sort of player interaction, though based purely on luck.

Sometimes called free games, free bets, or bonus spins, free spins allow players to play wager-free for a set number of spins and just watch the cash roll in.

Table games

Blackjack

BlackJack Intro

Blackjack is a very popular game in a casino. The aim of the game is to score as close to 21 as possible and in doing so beat the dealers score. If the dealer gets closer to 21, you lose.

Every card has a face value which is shown in chapter 4.2.3 of confluence. 

If the player scores over 21 they are “bust” or “over” and their game is lost instantaneously. If however your first 2 cards drawn are a value of 10 and an Ace, you’ll score a “BlackJack” which pays 2-1 instead of just doubling your stake.

The game does require a bit of nerve and common sense, as well as an element of luck when the cards are drawn.

Blackjack Table Anatomy

Click the various information buttons for a description of each area of the table. There is also a text description below.

Features:

  • Chips - Bet increment. For example the "5" chip would mean £5. 
  • Seat - This is where the player "sits" to be in play. If there is no-one else playing, the player can take up more than one seat if they wish.
  • Dealer play area - This is where the dealers cards are played and are visible. Usually you see one of these cards turned up so the player can decide on what to do next.
  • Chip rack - This isn't really used in online versions but it's essentially where the dealer pays you from.
  • Min/Max bet - The maximum or minimum bet allowed per seat

Blackjack Values & Terms

Values:

  • Cards that are not picture cards or aces are valued at their numeric value.
  • Picture cards (Jack, Queen, King) are valued 10.
  • Ace can be used as a 1 or an 11. The total number reached is referred to as a "soft" or "hard" respectively.
  • The best possible blackjack hand is an opening deal of an ace with any ten-point card. This is called a "blackjack", and the player holding this automatically wins unless the dealer also has a blackjack. In this case, the result is "PUSH".
  • PUSH basically means the bet is a draw and the player gets his stake returned. 


Other BlackJack Terms...
