The Basics of Multi Line Slots
by Jason Green of

When you play slots, whether it be at a land-based casino or online, there are many types of slots games that you can play. One of the more popular slots games is Multi Line Slots.

Multi Line Slots are slots games that have more than one single payline. Generally a Multi Line Slots game will have 3 paylines. There is one payline in the middle of the screen, one on the top, and one on the bottom. If you pull the slot lever or push the spin button and you hit a winning combination that lands right on any of these paylines you may win.


The thing is, is that you will only be able to activate all of the 3 paylines if you play with the maximum number of coins or credits that the game allows. If you only play with one or two coins, playing on a slots game with a 3 coin maximum 3 line game, and you get the winning combination on the top payline, you may think you have won, but you probably did not win anything. However, if you played with the 3 coin max, no matter what payline you hit, you are a winner.

Obviously, by looking at this scenario if you play a slots game like the example above you have more opportunities to win. You have to keep in mind that this is the case only if you play the maximum number of coins that the game allows.

If the Multi Lines Slots game is one that has a progressive payout you will also have to play the maximum number of coins in order to hit the jackpot. You can win playing Multi Lines Slots using any number of coins, but to hit it big and take advantage of the Multi Line paylines, you have to play the maximum number of coins.
