Classic Slots - Rules
InterCasino Slots is played
and programmed according to Atlantic City Gaming
Authority: New Jersey Casino Control
machine has three spinning reels with 22 positions
per reel marked with symbols. Each time a spin is
made, the three reels come to rest randomly with a
selection of symbols showing in the game window.
Certain combinations of symbols in the game window
result in payoffs. The payoffs for the different
winning combinations are shown in a window at the
top of each Slot machine. For some machines, like
Rags to Riches you need to click on the Payout
Table button to view the Payout Table.
InterCasino Slot machines operate like slots
machines found in the casinos throughout the world. The only
difference, which is greatly
favorable for the player, is that you can switch
your coin value from $0.25 to $5 without changing
to another machine!
How to Play:
playing Slots, you must deposit money into the
machine. To do this, you must select a bill type
($5, $10, $20, $50, $100) at the right hand side
of the Slots screen. You can toggle through the
different bill types by clicking on appropriate
denomination. Once you have made your selection,
deposit the bill into the Slot machine by clicking
on the insert bill area. You should see a bill
move into the Slot machine. You may then select
which coin denomination you wish to play - $0.25,
$1, $2, or $5. To increase or decrease
denominations, please click on the "left
arrow" or "right arrow" buttons,
respectively, at the
left-hand side of the Slot machine.
Once you have deposited to the Slot machine and
selected a coin denomination, the amount of coins
you have available within the machine is shown in
the Credits field at the top right hand corner of
the Slot machine with an initial bet of 1
displayed in the Bet field. For example, if you
deposit $20 with the coin denomination selector
set to $1, you will see 20. If you then click the
"right arrow" button of the coin denomination
selector (which changes the coin value to $0.25),
you will then see that the Credits field has been
changed to 80. The Bet field displays the amount
of coins you have selected to bet that spin.
Please note that the BALANCE field will not change
when you change the coin denomination since they
show your balance in dollars (not coins).
Once you have deposited money into the Slot
machine and chosen a coin denomination, you may
then click on the "BET ONE" button up to a maximum
of three times which corresponds to the maximum
bet of 3 coins. Some machines like Flower Power
and Forbidden Fruit allow up to 5 coins. You may
then start the reels spinning by clicking on the
"SPIN REELS" button. If you would like to play
with the maximum amount of coins (3) per spin, you
may alternatively choose to simply click the
"BET MAX" button which will start to spin the reels for
you automatically. When the reels stop, your
payoff will be determined from a table of winning
combinations shown on the top of each machine. Any
credits you win will be displayed in the Paid
field. Upon placing your next bet the credits in
the Paid field will be added to your Credits (minus the amount of the bet which will be
displayed in the Bet field). To turn your machine
credits back into regular chips, click on the
"CASH OUT" button.
To change the type of Slot machine you are
playing, click on the Slot machine in the menu bar
you would like to play. When you change the
machine type, your credits and coin denominations
will not change. If you change to a machine that
does not have the specific denomination that you
were playing then the amount of credits remains
the same but the denomination will change. If you
move from a higher denomination game to a lower
denomination game, any excess coins will be placed
back into your BALANCE field.
Note: You can only change Slot machines
when your hand is finished, i.e. when the BET
buttons are active.
Progressive Jackpot Slot Machines: The
following machines offer a progressive jackpot:
25¢ Triple Olives, $1 Triple Olives and $1 Rags to
Riches. Unlike regular slot machines, progressive
jackpot slot machines operate on a fixed
denomination. So, if you are playing 25¢ Triple
Olives and you would like to switch to $1 Triple
Olives, you need to exit the 25¢ Triple Olives
machine and then enter the $1 Triple Olives
machine. If you are playing a regular slot machine
for $2 or $5 and then switch to a progressive slot
machine, the denomination and credits will change
to the match the denomination of the machine
selected. The top payout on a progressive jackpot
machine is not fixed as in regular slot machines.
Jackpot values start at a specific level and grow
each time somebody makes a bet. The starting
jackpot values are identified in the table below.
|$1 Rags to Riches
|$0.25 Triple Olives
|$1 Triple Olives
to Riches is not only a progressive jackpot game.
It is also a shared jackpot game. This means that
the value of the jackpot grows each time somebody
makes a bet while playing at InterCasino or any
other participating casino. This means the jackpot
$0.25 per coin minimum.
$5 per coin
Note: You may
turn on/off the Sound, Voice and Animation during
the game by clicking on the Options button located
in the lower left-hand area of the console. The
setting is turned on when the checkbox is checked
and it is turned off when the checkbox is
unchecked. You must exit and re-enter the game to
activate the Animation feature.
