slot dictionaryHave you ever found yourself scratching your head about the simple word that cannot be understood within the context or it doesn’t occur to you what it might mean? It is a favorite thing in the gambling world, where different casino games have such specific terminology that you are unable to play without. It is why we took the time to put together all the words and phrases explicitly related to the slot machines and online slot games that you can think of (or ran into). If you think any of our explanations or suggested, words are not correct or right in some way, feel free to contact us. There are so many versions of the same things out there, so we will do our best not to misinterpret any slot game term or phrase.
