243 Ways Game Information

The 243 Ways format was first seen with offline slots from Aristocrat and IGT. Some of the most popular titles that have used 243 Ways include Indian Dreaming, Wild Ways and 5 Dragons from Aristocrat. Today Aristocrat calls these games Reel Power while IGT uses the Multiway name for their game library.

If you have never played a 243 Ways slot before then it can be a bit confusing. Instead of betting on individual lines all you need to do is make a bet that covers all ways. This is rarely 243 coins and in almost all cases much less. You often have the option to bet more than one coin per way which is multiples of the base bet for all ways.

To win on a 243 Ways game you do not need to line up any of the symbols. All you have to get is three or more of the same symbols aligned left to right to win. This means that five of a kind of the same symbols on the screen is always going to be a nice win unlike on traditional line slots where you might not have the symbols on a line.

The first 243 Ways game to appear online was Burning Desire by Microgaming and there is now a growing collect of games using the format. Some of the games above such as Robin Hood and Lord of the Rings may appear to have very small jackpots but they also have stacked wild symbols. This gives the chance to win the top prize on all 243 Ways!

While 243 is the most common amount of ways there are some games that take the idea to another level with several 1024 ways games and even a 3125 ways game available. One thing that is clear is that this format is very popular with video slot fans.
