Online Pokies Terminology & Bonus Features

While online slots at BigWins are pretty simple to play, still, there are some aspects and features that are worth knowing.


Megaways gives a totally new dimension to pokies by offering thousands of paylines. In other words, with these games, there are even more ways for you to win big at BigWins. Every spin on a Megaways online slot is unique, with a changing number of symbols to create wins. If you fancy a go on a Megaways slot, popular titles include Blood Suckers Megaways, The Dog House Megaways and Great Rhino Megaways. 


While most games have their own theme-specific symbols, there are universal symbols that have a specific functionality within the game itself. For example, Wild symbols substitute most other symbols on the reels to form a winning combination, and Scatter symbols trigger a bonus round feature when landed in a winning combination.

Paylines and Multipliers

Paylines refer to the combinations of symbols that are necessary to form winning combinations, and multipliers refer to a feature that multiplies the win by a given Multiplier, starting at 2x the bet.

RTP (Return to Player) 

RTP tells you the theoretical amount that is paid back to players out of the total amount paid into a slot. The higher the RTP, the better. The average is about 96%, so anything more increases your chances of winning.


Volatility determines how often you will hit a winning combination. A high-volatility pokie may pay more significant sums but less often, and a low-volatility pokie may offer smaller, more frequent wins.

Bonus Rounds

Bonus rounds are an opportunity for players to hit more winning combinations or earn extra rewards from a game. You usually need to trigger these rounds with certain combinations of symbols before you can enjoy them. 

Feature Buy

If you don’t like waiting to hit that bonus, you can always use a Bonus Buy to jump straight into these bonus rounds. Bonus Buy games include Wanted Dead or a Wild and Fire in the Hole xBomb.

Free Spins

Free spins are beloved by all players for a reason. It is triggered by landing a specific set of symbols on the reels, and it rewards a number of free spins to the player at no cost (hence the name).
