There is no point in you putting your money in a slot game that you might not even like after all. Once you are on play mode, you should be off to evaluate the audiovisual characteristics of the slot game. You should try to pick up on the audio effects and notice if there is any music playing in the background. You should also judge if you like their graphics and animations and if they run smoothly on your computer.

The next thing is to evaluate the number of paylines because in some slot machines you might be able to choose the number of paylines and the number of coins per line, whereas in others it could already be predetermined.

You should be looking at the payouts, the wild symbol, the multipliers and extra features that are offered, and whether scatter payouts are offered.
