Slots Scatter Symbols

In any online slot game there are many symbols on the reels. Some of the symbols are designated as special symbols, because they directly or indirectly lead to larger payouts. One such symbol is the scatter symbol.

The icon on the scatter symbol is usually closely associated to an important aspect of the theme of the online slot because of its importance. In the Wizard Gaming online slot Caesar's Gold the Coliseum is the scatter symbol. In some of the newer online slots the scatter symbols are animated. The scatter symbol differs from the other symbols in two respects. The scatter symbols need not appear in an active payline in order to yield results. That is why they are called scatter symbols. The scatter symbols cannot be replaced by the wild symbols. Wild symbols are those than can replace any symbol (except scatter symbols) in order to make a winning combination.

In most online slots scatter symbols pay out directly when three or more of them appear anywhere on the reels (and in rare cases two or more). The payout increases with the number of scatter symbols. For example in Caesar's Gold the payout is 5 for 3 scatter symbols, 40 for 4 scatter symbols and 200 for 5 scatter symbols. This information is available on the payout table and players should read and understand the payout table before playing. If players know how the scatter symbols will pay they will be on the lookout for scatter symbols and this will add excitement to the game. One important aspect about the scatter payout is that it multiplies the total bet and not just the line bet. Therefore it is advisable to play all paylines in online slots that have large scatter payouts.

In many online slots scatter symbols trigger bonus games, which offer additional opportunities for winning. The games rules explain how this works and players should read them carefully, especially because different online slots may have different rules. There are two types of bonus games. One is the bonus game on the second screen in which players pick 'x' objects out of the given 'y' objects and the other is the free spins bonus round in which players are given a number of free spins. Wizard Gaming's Divin' for Pearls is an online slot game that features both these games and both games are triggered by different scatter symbols. The bonus game on the second is triggered when the clam scatter symbol appears anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5. The player chooses 1 out of 7 clams on the second screen. The chosen clam reveals the number of credits won by the player. The free spin round is triggered when three or more blowfish scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels. The blowfish scatter symbols also ayout directly, and this is a double bonus. The actual number of blowfish symbols dictates the number of free spins awarded.
