Respin. Ever come up just one short of hitting that big win and wish you had a do-over? Well, “Respin” allows you to do that – for a price! This option allows only to spin that one reel that they feel should have been a winner for an extra bet, keeping all the other reels in a locked position. The amount charged for any given “Respun“ line will correspond to the potential payout. Example: Four out of the five icons needed in a row for that top prize have landed in a matching line – You pay for another spin and only the missing icon in the line selected spins – winning or losing. Be advised that you will pay dearly in this example because of the potential odds and payout if you win.
Within most games are mini-games, also called bonus games or bonus rounds. You trigger them by hitting three special symbols like Bonus or Scatter. Different games work in different ways but the one really common bonus is a set of free spins. The game will auto-spin 20 times, for example, and you get to keep all the winnings. In other games, a second screen will appear and let you spin a wheel or play a new game to win special prizes.
RNG or Random Number Generator: This is a specially designed computer program which generates a series of numbers which are related to a specific reel result which is then duplicated. The higher payouts are assigned a fewer series of numbers, as oppose to the lower pay outs which are assigned more series of numbers. The RNG program then sequences through a specified series of numbers to determine the result once the player initiates the game.
