Slots or casino slot machines break down into 3 categories. Single line slots, Multi line slots and Progressive jackpots. The first "single-line slots" are the oldest form of slots and the most common and go back to the days when players used to pull a lever on the side of the machine to spin the reels (affectionately called One Armed Bandits). They are usually 3 reels in width and around 5 winning line combinations, with not many features. The multi-line slots were the next generation slots and have upto 5 reels across and can have upto 20 winning line combinations. These multi line slots are far more common within online casinos, as they have bigger wins available, more 'ways' of winning, and fun feature games which keep up the enjoyment of playing slots.
But if money is what you are after and I am talking BIG bucks, then progressive slots are what you seek. Progressive slot machines are the accumulation of thousands of players from across the globe all effectively playing the same machine. This makes the jackpots grow a lot faster and much bigger than ever before. The accumulation factor in these new slot machines gives them massive player appeal, and I know from experience that resistance is futile - that one in a million chance of hitting it big, is just too big for me - I love to play the progressive slot machines and whenever I play online I always seek them out.

Playing online slots can be great fun and also offers a chance of winning far greater jackpots than are available in land based UK casinos. With many games offering jackpots in excess of £1 million, playing online slots is rapidly becoming one of the most popular forms of online casino gambling.
