STReight - Slots

Basic Principle

A number of rotating/virtual cylinders on which are printed colours or other symbols, and a control panel with buttons for betting, constitute the slots application of the STReight™ gambling game.

After placing the chips or coins into the machine, the player defines bets by pressing one or more buttons. The draw begins by pushing the "Start" button.

Adding more discs and more symbols diversifies the Slots game in its mechanical/ software versions. The number of symbols (colours) must be equal to or higher than the number of rotating cylinders used.

The payouts

Slots 3 symbols (colours) - 3x3

  • A bet on one symbol in any winning sequence, except the sequences with all the symbols, called "colour bet", pays 3 to 1 (the player collects 4).
  • A bet on pairs, no matter which symbol, called "pairs any colour", pays 1 to 1.
  • A bet on 3 in line, no matter which symbol, called "three any colour", pays 7 to 1.
  • A bet on pairs, one symbol, called "pairs colour" or "two colours", pays 5 to 1.
  • A bet on 3 in line, one symbol, called "three colours", pays 23 to 1.
  • A bet on all symbols sequences, called "ALL", pays 3 to 1.
  • A bet on no winning sequence, called "NONE", pays 3 to 1 (optional).

Slots 5 symbols (colours) - 5x5

  • A bet on one symbol in any winning sequence, except the sequences with all the symbols, called "colour bet", pays 6 to 1 (the player collects 7).
  • A bet on pairs, no matter which symbol, called "pairs any colour", pays 1 to 1.
  • A bet on 3 in line, no matter which symbol, called "three any colour", pays 8 to 1.

  • A bet on pairs, one symbol, called "pairs colour" or "two colours", pays 9 to 1.
  • A bet on 3 in line, one symbol, called "three colours", pays 45 to 1.
  • A bet on 4 in line, one symbol, called "four colours", pays 300 to 1.
  • A bet on 5 in line, one symbol, called "five colours", pays 2000 to 1.
  • A bet on all symbols sequences, called "ALL", pays 20 to 1.
  • A bet on no winning sequence, called "NONE", pays 2 to 1 (optional).

Only pure sequences generate payouts; for example, a four of a kind sequence cannot be interpreted as double pair and two pairs same colour cannot be interpreted as "four colours".

Object of the game

To win at STReight™ the player needs to predict what sequence(s) the slots will show after START is pressed, and has the chance to bet on many sequences.

Some players go with the winning sequences calling them "hot" sequences, which are likely to come up more often. Others see which sequences did not come up for some time and bet on them believing that their turn is now due. Some players bet on many sequences to increase their chances of winning at every deal, but this way the payout decreases considerably. Other methodical players use specific STReight™ systems or methods, money management systems, or both.

The house advantage

Depending on the payout method used, the house advantage decided by the casino varies. The house advantage is a minimum of 11.11% for 3-symbol Slots and a minimum of 15.52% for 5-symbol Slots.
