Bonus Rounds and Payouts
8-Ball Slots is a relatively simple game and does not have any bonus rounds, Scatters or Wild. However, there are many exciting ways to win in this game.
The smallest wins in the game are awarded when 3 striped or 3 solid balls land on the single pay-line. 3 balls of the same colour, whether striped or solid, will also pay out a modest amount. Small amounts are also paid out when players land 2 of a kind.
The biggest wins are paid out to players that can land 3 identical balls on a pay-line. The highest payout is awarded when landing three 8-Ball symbols. The payout for three 8-Balls will be 2000 coins when players are betting on the maximum level.
The other balls payout as follows on a maximum bet:
- Three striped 14 or 15 balls: 200 coins

Additional Game Features
There are two betting options in 8-Ball Slots, a high bet option and a low bet option. You can bet low by clicking "Bet One" and bet high by clicking "Bet Two". There is an option to change the wager amounts in each betting option, to suit individual players.
There is only one special symbol in the game and it is that of the 8-Ball that has a star-like halo. The symbol doesn"t activate any bonus features but has the highest payout in the game so it could be seen as a jackpot symbol
The game also has an "AutoPlay" feature that allows players to spin reels on their desired bet automatically. It is suggested that players first get a feel of the game before they start playing on the "AutoPlay" mode.
