Understanding Respins Feature In Online Pokies

Microgaming has just launched two online pokies Bikini Party and Dragon Dance with the Respins feature. This innovative feature was first introduced by Microgaming in 2010 in the online pokies Reel Gems and Retro Reels. It makes the online pokie more interactive by allowing the player to take a material decision based on his affinity for risk. This article explains the Respins feature so that players at Australian online casinos can enjoy these new pokies better.

In the online pokies with this feature there is a Respin button below each reel. In the beginning it shows a blank. You set the betting options and activate the first spin as usual. When the reels come to rest the payouts are made. You will now see a value displayed in each Respin button. This is the cost you will have to pay if you want to spin that reel only keeping the others fixed. This option does give an advantage. If you have a like symbol on reels 1, 3, 4 and 5 you do not receive payouts. By re-spinning only reel 2 you may get that symbol on the reel and end up with a five-of-a-kind payout. The most important aspect of the Respins feature is that if there is a higher probability of getting a larger payout then the cost of the re-spin will be more.

Another thing that you must keep in mind is that only new wins as a result of the realignment of symbols on the reel being re-spun will pay. If you have a three-of-a-kind combination on the first three reels, it will not pay again when you re-spin the fourth reel. After a re-spin new values appear in the Respin buttons based on the new configuration on the reels. You can activate the Respins feature as many times as you want, but will have to pay the cost each time. The Respins feature is optional. If you do not want to re-spin any reel then you should click the Spin button as normal. The total bet per spin will be deducted from your balance and all five reels will spin again. If you change any of the betting options before a spin, the values in the Respins buttons will be deleted and will show a blank. The Microgaming software warns you of this so that you can take corrective action. The Respins feature is not available when you set the online pokie on Auto Play or in the free spins bonus round.
