Slot Fundamentals: Ways to Win

Slot Fundamentals is a column we’ll be running occasionally to help our players better understand how our games work. This edition deals with ‘ways,’ which are an alternative to paylines that determine wins in some of our games.

High 5 Games is known for creating slots with innovative gameplay, and one of the ways we built that reputation was by providing players with more than one type of basic game experience. For example, in addition to paylines (which we explained in the inaugural edition of Slot Fundamentals), H5G also makes games that determine wins through something called ways. But how exactly do they work? Jeremy, an H5G software engineer, was kind enough to provide an explanation of ways:

“Ways is another form of evaluation for slot machines besides paylines. In a ways game, you don’t need to worry about lining up symbols along any specific line – their vertical positions don’t matter. Just as long as there is some path of matching symbols across the reels, you get paid. Pretty easy, huh? As an added bonus, you get paid separately for every different ‘way’ you can draw that path. For example, see the below screenshot from High 5 Casino fan favorite Gypsy, a ways game. Notice how I managed to get a three-of-a-kind win on the title character’s symbol. There are four different ways to draw a path, left-to-right, across the winning reels – try it if you don’t believe me. As a result, my pay was multiplied by four! Look for ways on many of High 5 Games’ classics, including Thundering Buffalo, Lady of Hope, and Dream Beauty.”


We hope you found that helpful! We’ll be explaining Super Symbols in the next edition of this column. Which slot fundamental would you like to see us explain in the future?
