There are differences between fruit machines, which replicate slots from English pubs, and regular slot machines. New players sometimes avoid fruit machines because the features are unfamiliar and they’re not just about spinning. The games are rare in online casinos, and the number of regular slots is so huge that fruit machines can be ignored. But learning about them can be very rewarding. You can play for free while you learn.

Nudge is a feature where a button is displayed under random reels. By pressing it you can move the reel one position down. Sometimes more than one Nudge button is available in one spin.

The Hold button also appears below random reels. You can keep one or two reels fixed while the rest spins again.

In Cash Ladder the bottom step of the ladder gets highlighted by any win. To climb the Cash Ladder you need to play Hi Lo. A number is displayed, you spin again for the next number, but before that you need to guess if the next number is going to be higher or lower than the current one. Correct answer means stepping up on Cash Ladder, incorrect answer means losing the wager. There are three options in Cash Ladder:

 playing Hi Lo until losing or reaching the top of the ladder and winning a jackpot,
 collecting your winnings and starting a new spin,
 exchanging your winnings for the feature game on your current ladder step.

Feature Board gets triggered by special symbols. It’s similar to Monopoly board – you move forward and encounter events such as climbing Cash Ladder, the Cash Pot amount being multiplied or added to, or a feature game getting activated.
