In the past, slot machines were divided into different types, according to their different parameters and properties. Nowadays, it’s hard to really categorize slot machines. After the ancient mechanical slot machines, video slot machines were developed, in which we could already see what was happening on a screen, and a software controlled the gameplay and everything that happened. Online slots are essentially based on video slots, because animations, shiny graphics, sounds, music, mini-games, bonuses, interesting features, a variable number of reels, and game mechanics await you. Online slots are essentially software, so their development is limited only by imagination, any gameplay element, prize mechanics, practically anything can be programmed, so in theory, any interesting thing can be found in online slots. You can find slot machines of all types, with few reels, with a variable number of reels, few winning lines, many winning lines, also with mechanics where the prizes are not formed along winning lines but from the cluster contact of identical or matching symbols, when the identical or matching symbols in a given number, they touch in formation then the winning symbols disappear.
There are games with low, medium and high variance, the multipliers also change, the basic principle is the same for all of them, only their properties are different, it is difficult and perhaps not particularly worthwhile to divide them into categories, the basis of all slot machines is the same.
