243 or 1024 ways of winning is all about the different winning lines that is available in the slot machine. In this article we will explain why the name is just 243 or 1024 ways of winning.
When the first early slot machines came on the market it was all about getting the right symbols in one line. Shortly after it became possible to activate more lines if you raised the bet. Then you could play on three lines.
Todays slot machines you just place the bet and the winning lines are already activated, this is how the slot machine is constructed from the beginning. Sure you can have other features like you activate a bonus line and if a win comes on that line something more is happening, like the HotLine slot from NetEnt.
There are slot machines with 243 ways of winning, 1024 ways of winnings and also 3125 ways of winning. The formula is mathematical and it is good to know because it can make your playing a little bit more interesting. Knowledge is power.
If we start with 243 ways of winning we have 3 possible symbols on every wheel and there are 5 wheels so the formula will be 3x3x3x3x3=243 possible ways of win.
If we look at 1024 so maybe you already have been thinking about it but with 4 symbols on every wheel there will be 4x4x4x4x4 which gives us 1024.
So, if we instead have 5 symbols on each wheel it will be 5x5x5x5x5=3125 ways of winning.
