Unfortunately there’s nothing on a slot machine that will tell you that a game has a shaky shaky element. But it’s becoming increasingly common nowadays for slots to give you some form of tell that something good is coming.

These have taken a variety of forms over the years. The “Shaky Shaky” style of tell has become pretty popular, but games have done all sorts of things. The tiger/dragon “roar” on Mighty Cash is a great example, as is the babies coming out on Fu Dao Le.

Many Asian themed games will have some sort of “Luck Has Arrived” message, a popular scenario for that format. Other games will have something fly by the screen – stars, dragons, and so on – to tell you that something special is about to happen.

These elements will pre-announce a variety of generally positive scenarios:

  • A free spins bonus
  • A hold and spin feature or other feature
  • A big line hit

In the end, they’re spicing up the excitement a bit. Of course, you don’t need to have a shaky shaky type moment to actually get one of these things, but the games will work these in on a percentage of them just to keep things fun and interesting.

When these were becoming more commonplace, some players were frustrated by the development because it sort of ruined the random surprise of it all since you knew something good was about to happen. 

But now, players appear to be increasingly comfortable and excited with that announcement element popping up, since they know that something good is on the way, and the fact that games can offer various forms of outcomes does keep the element of surprise in there because you’re not quite sure what good thing you’ll be getting.

As games have more bonus and feature variety within a single game, that allows the announcement element to still offer some surprise because there’s a few possibilities it could be announcing.
