Modern video slots are full of variety. Manufacturers take care of the players’ interest and improve the products. They truly try hard to create a variety of different options even for standard gambling machines with classic themes. Nowadays, users can also choose slot machines, where are not just reels with symbols, that produce diverse winning combinations. New slots also allow to get special bonus symbols and other functions. One of such symbols Scatter symbol or the Scatter. Scatter slots pleases players with gifts or bonuses, falling into the slot cells randomly. As a rule, even two Scatters on the playing field - it is a definite advantage. Three or more Scatters in cells of online machine – it is a guaranteed bonus spins or other bonus round. But there are machines, where scatter functions are limited: there is either payout of winnings or a launch of bonus round.
And few more points:
- The title for the Scatter may be different - Free Spins, Wins, Bonus.
- Scatter may fall on all or on certain reels (some slot machines produced by IGT are made to turn the scatter on central reels and machines of BetSoft distribute the bonus symbols directly on first three reels).
- There are also such on-line machines (for example, Book of Ra), where Scatter may be a Wild symbol at the same time (it means that Scatter complements the winning combination).
Thus, the presence of bonus symbols of different sort allows to diversify simple rotations by interesting variations.
