Jackpots or high payouts are every player’s dream, but small ones are better than nothing at all. However, getting no winning combinations when you play is a disgusting thing everybody hates, whether it’s a single unlucky spin or a series of those. There was nothing we could do about it until recently, with the new Re-spin feature being introduced in some games by Microgaming and RTG software providers. They include a Respin button below each reel, re-spinning it while the others are fixed, and it is a great option when you lack just 1 symbol for a winning combination. It costs an extra amount of money displayed under the Respin button, but it may be worth it. It is similar to the gamble option, but while players could only gamble their wins in a game where it was available, now they can play their losses as well. It’s an innovation that is a pleasure to see in online slot games.
Re-Spins is a bonus feature sometimes confused with free spins, but they are different, so read the rules carefully. Re-Spins, also triggered by three special symbols, will keep the reels where these symbols occur fixed, while the other reels are re-spun, often just once, but some fruit machines offer up to 20 respins, and here’s a list of slots with Re-spin features.
