In blackjack hands, 9-7 and Ace-5 can both be read as totals of 16, but they’re very different hands that require different approaches to strategy.
That’s because Aces can be read as either 1 or 11. Hands in which Aces are counted as 11 are called “soft” blackjack hands. They can’t be busted with a one-card hit. The Ace can just be counted as a 1 instead.
Never let it be said that a slot machine designer will waste an opportunity to build entertainment into today’s games.
Even the symbols are fair game to become an entertainment vehicle, right alongside the bonus events, animation and jackpots.
Symbols on reels have been basics ever since there have been slots. But today’s online and video slots have opened the door to making the symbols themselves an important part of the playing experience.
