More About 3 Reel Pokies

There are generally very few player controls to worry about on most 3 reel pokies and they usually don’t have any randomly triggered second screen bonus rounds. The vast majority also don’t have Wild Symbols, Scatter Symbols, Bonus Symbols or any other special symbols to keep an eye out for. However, some 3 reel pokies do have these symbols and they may have simple features such as ‘Nudge’ or ‘Hold’ for example.

The aim is really simple on most 3 reel pokies. You need to start by selecting your stake and then just hit spin. If three matching symbols happen to show up across any of the winning paylines, you will instantly be awarded a prize based on the value of that symbol. The paytable is usually always on display either directly above the reels or just next to the reels.

The most famous 3 reel pokies from Microgaming include titles such as Break da Bank, Bar Bar Blacksheep, Couch Potato, Fruit Fiesta, Cash Splash, Isis, Major Millions and Wow Pot and some of the most famous 3 Reel Pokies from Playtech include Vacation Station, Tres Amigos, Sultan’s Fortune, Safecracker, Rock ‘n Roller, Reel Classic 3, Party Line, Neptune’s Kingdom, Magic Slots, Jungle Boogie, Haunted House, Funky Monkey and Everybody’s Jackpot.

These pokies are generally available in the real money mode and in the free play mode and even the ones that don’t have progressive jackpots still have some really big prizes to play for. If you are looking for something really simple to play when you visit an online casino, the 3 reel pokies should be the ideal kind of game for you. There are literally hundreds of them available online today and they can become instantly addictive (in a fun way) for many players.
