Instead of the old fashioned fruit symbols, Playtech has devised a simple online slot machine which utilizes the balls you would find on a pool or billiard table. “8-Ball Slots” is its name, since the greatest payoff comes to you if you can get three 8-balls across your payline.
The game is easy to play with just three reels and one payline down the middle. The player can choose to bet one or two coins on each spin. The minimum bet is just $.05, while the maximum bet is $10.
The maximum payoff is only possible when you play two coins. Get three 8-Balls with one coin played and you will win 800 times your bet. But if you bet two coins on the spin, you will win 2000 times your bet. If you played the maximum bet of $10, that payoff would be $20,000.
The 8-Ball Slot Machine is set up to resemble a pool table, with a green background which resembles the color of the felt cloth, at least on most pool tables. The corner pockets and side pockets are also visible, giving you the feeling that you're playing the game on the billiard table in your game room.
A pool table has fifteen balls and so does the 8-Ball Slots game. In order to win, you need to get three of them on the one payline.
All the payoffs for three-of-a-kind are substantial The higher the number of your winning combination, the greater your payoff. Three 14's or three 13's pay a maximum of $1,000. The lowest numbers, 1's and 2's, have the lowest payoff, but still pay $300 for a maximum bet.
In an actual game of 8 ball, one player must pocket all the striped balls, which are the higher numbered balls, from 9-15. The other player must pocket all the unstriped, or solid balls, which are numbered from 1-7. 8-Ball Slots incorporates this aspect of the pool game into their payoffs. If you get three balls on a line that are all solids or all stripes, you win. This rule gives the player many more chances to collect when playng the game.
Three solids, or low balls, on one line pays a maximum of $20 and since the payoffs in 8-Ball Slots get better for the high balls, three stripes, or higher balls, pays as much as $50.
