Casino Bonuses on slot machines explained

Slot machines are one of the most popular types of online gambling here in the Unibet casino. And that’s why we offer loads of slot bonuses in the casino so you get the best experience from your game time!

We at Unibet are dedicated to maximising your enjoyment on the casino games — and slots are proving an excellent place to get in on the action.

Our slot machines cover a huge range of themes and vary in complexity and stake levels. It means there will certainly be a slot machine for you to enjoy in our casino suite.

Every slot machine here in the Unibet online casino has some form of bonus features. Some only have a few, specialised bonuses. Others possess a wide range of bonus features to keep the gameplay fresh and exciting on almost very spin!

But newcomers to the world of online slot machines may not be overly familiar with the bonuses available. Indeed, you may even miss out on huge bonuses by simply not knowing your way around the machine.

Therefore, we’ve created this guide to help you understand the basics of casino bonuses in the slot machines. You’ll learn the main bonuses available on the best games, how to spot and use those bonuses, and what payouts you could win if they go well for you.

What are casino slot bonuses? 

Casino slot bonuses are special features built within typical slot machine games that add an extra possibility of you winning big. Most slot machines online work in the same typical way. You set the amount of money you want to bet on the game, and spin the reels to see if you’ve won. Slot machines range from three reels to up to 10 reels, although many are five-reel slots with similar bonus features.

You will see bonuses pop up when you spin the wheels and they will be automatically added to the game play if you happen to stumble upon one.

The bonuses allow you to play a bonus round. This is where the game will move to a new slot machine or even a completely different game, such as a spin the wheel. You then have a chance to win the jackpot or a different prize when you spin the wheel.

Other features of slot machines include Wilds and Scatters. You can read more about those bonus features in our other guides in the Unibet casino suite. But for this guide, we’re going to stick to bonuses.

What do casino slot bonuses look like? 

Casino bonuses will be very clearly stated within the gameplay. But it is worth understanding what they look like, so you know where to find them. Every slot machine here at Unibet has a paytable and an information screen. These can be found on the side or below the game and give you everything you need to understand and play the game.

The information page will explain what the bonus tile looks like. This means you definitely won’t miss them when they appear. In the case of Primal Megaways, a large mammoth and huge tusks is the symbol you’re looking for to trigger a bonus. Usually the symbol will also show the word ‘BONUS’ is large letters.

Are casino bonuses on all games? 

Not quite. Almost all casino slot games will have bonus features, such as free spins. But specific bonus rounds, where players might spin a wheel to claim a prize, is dependent on the game itself. Most games cover a bonus round in some ways. But it’s always worth checking the information guide before starting a new game, just to be sure.

Types of casino slot bonuses 

The main type of casino slot bonus is to play a new game where you are given a free spin on a wheel or reel. In many instances you effectively spin to see what big prize you will win. Some offer huge jackpots, like Mega Fortune, while others give away a wide variety of cash sums.

How are bonuses triggered?

Bonuses are triggered by landing them on your reels. You don’t know when they will turn up or how many. Each game offers its own style of bonuses and its own bonus game off the back of them.

Some games only require one bonus tile to emerge on the reels. Others will stipulate three need to be on the reel at any one time, while some will allow you to ‘collect’ bonuses over time and play the bonus round once you’ve hit a certain number.

The beauty of bonuses is that they come at any time. You could be playing your first ever reel and a bonus could emerge. They are a great feature to add depth to game play alongside scatters and wilds.

But it’s probably not a good idea to solely rely on bonuses. Like anything else, a bonus should be treated as a bonus, so don’t expect them to come around too often! Bonuses are randomly generated and that can sometimes mean waiting a while for them to emerge on the reels.

Extra reel bonuses 

Some slot machines in the Unibet casino suite have an extra reel facility. This is when an additional reel can combine with your current reels to bolster your chances of winning. And it can help with bonuses. In Extra Chilli, for example, the additional reel runs underneath the usual reels, possessing the possibility of aiding your spin.

And bonuses can therefore crop up in this section, as well as other parts of the slot machine.
