The odds of winning a slot game are calculated differently depending on how many coins are inserted into the slot machine. This allows the manufacturers of slots to offer a wider range of jackpots and other slot features. In addition to paying a certain amount of coins per spin, the slot can include different reel sizes, wild symbols, and bonus games. Modern slot machines have the ability to have many more symbols on each reel than their mechanical counterparts. And because of their computer programming, they are more flexible.
