Online Casino Games - Rules Explained

A Night Out

5-Reel, 20-Line Slot10,000 x multiplier

The objective when playing A Night Out slot is to spin the reels and match symbols on the paylines. The online casino game also has a Free Games Bonus that can help boost your balance.

How to Play:

  • Start by choosing your coin value by using the +/- buttons on the right-hand bottom corner of the game screen.
  • The select your Line Bet by clicking on the Bet per Line button. Each time you click on this another coin will be added to the Line Bet.
  • Finally, choose the number of paylines you wish to play. Do this by clicking on the Select Lines button. When you actively click this button you will see a graphic showing the different paylines on the reels. You can also select paylines using the coloured buttons on both sides of the game reels. Please note: selecting a higher number of paylines will select all paylines numerically below that number, e.g. selecting 19 will also activate paylines 1 through 18.
  • The Total Bet is calculated as Line Bet x Number of Paylines. This is the amount deducted from your balance for each spin on A Night Out slot.
  • When you have selected your bets, click on the Spin button to spin the reels and start the game. You can also spin the reels using the Bet Max button; this plays the game at the maximum number of paylines (20) for your selected Line Bet.
  • If any winning combinations are achieved after a spin, they will be clearly highlighted on screen and the amount won shown in the Win Field. All winning combinations are shown on the Paytable. To calculate the value of a Line Win (matching symbols on an active payline), multiply the relevant figure on the Paytable by the Line Bet. For a Scatter Win, multiply by the Total Bet. More information is given on Scatter Wins in a section below.


Paylines are the pathways that matching symbols must follow from left to right across the reels to record Line Wins. Only active paylines, i.e. the ones that you bet on, can record Line Wins. You can view the paylines on the reels by actively clicking on the Select Lines button.

Please note: there is a difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The Line Bet is the amount wagered on each individual payline, whereas the Total Bet is the accumulative amount wagered on all active paylines. It is the latter amount that is deducted from your balance for each spin.

Scatter Symbols do not need to appear on paylines to be considered active.

About Payouts:

All possible payouts are listed on the Paytable screen, which can be accessed via the button on the bottom left of the game screen.

To calculate the value of a Line Win, multiply the figure shown on the Paytable by the Line Bet. For Scatter Win, multiply by the Total Bet.

Only the highest win is paid on each individual payline. Multiple wins (on different paylines) are added together, along with any Scatter Wins, and paid as a total.

Wild Symbol:

The Wild Symbol – represented by the Beer Tankard – can substitute for all other symbols (except for Bonus and Scatter) to help form Line Wins.

The Wild Symbol can also form its own standalone Line Win when a group of Wild Symbols appear on an active payline.

Scatter Symbol:

The Scatter Symbol – represented by the Nightclub Motif – does not need to appear on any payline to be considered active. If you land three or more Scatter Symbols anywhere on screen you will receive a cash amount. To calculate the value of the Scatter Win, multiply the figure from the Paytable by the Total Bet.

Free Games Bonus:

If you land the Bonus Symbol on the Reel 1 and Reel 5 after a spin, you will be awarded the Free Games Bonus. When this occurs:

  • A new screen appears. You will be prompted to choose from one of the six ladies, which will reveal the number of Free Games won. You can win between 2 and 20 Free Games.
  • Click Continue to move to the next stage.
  • You will then be prompted to choose a drink for the lady. Doing so will reveal a win multiplier which will apply to all wins during Free Games. You can reveal a win multiplier between x2 and x8.
  • Click Continue to start the Free Games. These will play automatically with the number of games won and win multiplier applied.
  • If you land the Bonus Symbols on Reel 1 and Reel 5 during Free Games, you will be awarded an extra number of Free Games; the win multiplier is not affected.
  • When all Free Games have been played you will be shown a summary of your winnings and returned to the base game.

Please note: the Line Bets and paylines for Free Games are the same as the triggering spin. This cannot be adjusted.

Return to Player:

The theoretical average RTP (Return to Player) for A Night Out slot is 97.06%. This is based on a long term average and not a guarantee for a single session.

How to play casino games

Here's a rundown of some of our most popular online casino games, including how to play them, and which offers the highest payouts.

Online slots

Online slots are played more than any other online casino games. They’re relatively simple to play, which makes them a great option for beginners. Slots can also offer large payouts, particularly for a jackpot win.

Playing slots online is very straightforward. The simplest form of online slots are three-reel slots, which are based on the traditional fruit machines you may have seen in arcades. In these slots, you’ll see three columns and three rows of symbols, with the middle row being the payline. You place your bet and spin the reel, and if you get a winning combination, you win the amount stated on the paytable.

There are many other kinds of slots online available at William Hill Canada, such as five-reel slots and video slots, but they essentially work in the same way. While the odds of winning at slots are slimmer than other online casino games, they do allow you to play with small stakes on a wide variety of slots. Slots with a jackpot offer a larger prize pool, so let’s have a look at those next.

Jackpot slots

The main difference between regular online slots and jackpot slots is that the former have a lower maximum payout. With jackpot slots, however, there are larger top prizes, sometimes offering up to a seven-digit win on just a single spin.

While 'jackpot' can refer to a fixed huge cash prize awarded during jackpot games, the term is also used to describe progressive slot games. For fixed jackpot slots the size of the jackpot is, well, a fixed amount. With a progressive slot, the size of the jackpot increases each time a player places a bet on the game. Progressive jackpot slots are a great way to add to your online gambling experience. These games can offer some of the most exciting experiences of all casino games, as they provide you with the chance to win the biggest payouts you'll find online.

Online roulette

Online roulette games consist of a wheel with spaces that are either red or black and are numbered from 1-36. This popular game is easy to learn and even easier to play. All you need to do is predict where the ball will land and place your bet. The roulette wheel then spins, and if it lands on where you placed your bet, you win.

You may think that only one variant of roulette exists in online casinos, as this is typically the case at real-world casinos. However, at William Hill Canada, you’ll find multiple variants available, including a European version with one zero, and an American version with two. You’ll also find a French version that offers slightly improved odds if you bet on an even-money proposition.

Online blackjack

To win at online blackjack, you need a higher number than the dealer without exceeding 21. You are dealt two cards and can ask for another card as many times as you want before you reach 21.

One of the great things about playing online blackjack is the number of variants available. At a real-world casino, you’re restricted to just one or two games, but you'll find more here at William Hill Canada, including Blackjack Scratch, Royale Blackjack, and Blackjack Super 21.

Live casino games online

This is where online casino technology really comes into its own. Some players enjoy the thrills provided by a real-life casino but also enjoy the convenience of playing online. Live casino offers the ultimate experience to these players. The only difference between playing live casino at home and playing at a land-based casino is that with the former, the action is live-streamed to your device.

You’ll be playing at real tables, with real cards, and with real croupiers dealing your cards or spinning the wheel. Depending on the game, you'll also be playing with other players from all over the globe. With the ability to enjoy live chat with both players and the dealer, live casino offers a fantastic opportunity to enjoy an immersive experience while playing your favourite casino games online.

Enjoy free online casino games with casino bonuses

An online casino bonus is a great way to boost your balance with extra funds and make playing your favourite online slots even more fun. Casino bonuses come in a number of different forms and are applicable to a variety of online casino games.

Almost all casinos bonuses are subject to their own terms and conditions, but what you get back is certainly worth it. If you look at our current bonuses, you’ll see our welcome offer, along with any other offers we may have available. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all bonus, so just make sure to keep your eye on our bonus page in order to enjoy our selection of games the fullest.
