A multiplier is just as it sounds – something that is being multiplied and this function is very common in the most slots but it is not present in all of them.
Surely you have seen when you done a spin that you got a multiplier when you have a special combination that your winnings will be doubled or trippled.
Regarding the function it can be advanced and be activated in the freespins mode or bonusgame. Another type of feature can be that your multiplier increas with 1x all the time as long as the winnings keeps going. First 1x then on next winning spin 2x and next 3x and so on. Also combinations with special symbols can give you like 10x or even bigger like 100x.
It is always a good thing to read the instructions and information in the slot about how the multiplier is set up. You can’t affect the slot itself but it is much more motivating to understand what kind of combinations you are looking for.
Most common are multipliers during combinationgames where you shall have some special symbols to activate them during freespins or bonusgames.
