Online slots (online pokies in Australia and New Zealand) is an online gambling application that produces a set of random numbers visualized as symbols across several reels (3 or 5 reels slots).
The way that a software manufacturer connects similar symbols to count towards your winnings is called a payline.
All slots are hosted and ran from the manufacturers servers, online casinos are being only providers of access to them, i.e. intermediaries in fact. So, whenever you or in an online casino for real money you actually play it on the slots manufacturer’s premises, online casino only takes and pays back your money. cannot change the gameplay or distribution of winnings in any specific slot.
