What is a scatter symbol ?
A scatter symbol is basically a key to unlocking various fun bonus features designed within a slot game, it is a symbol in a slots game which does not need to be on a win lin, unlike symbols that have to be lined up on a payline to win anything. The scatter symbols can appear anywhere on the playing reels in order to score a win for the player. If enough scatter symbols are landed, the player will win a return on their bet. Scatter symbols might also start bonus rounds in video slot games, or have additional features such as multiplier benefits, free spins mini games etc.
Not all slots games include scatter symbols, but they are a very common feature. Scatter symbols are typically one of the highest paying symbols in a slot game and are represented by a specific graphic that is unique to the theme of the particular slot title.
