When you see a screenshot of an Online Slot, you often can’t see the exact amount won at a glance without the help of supporting text. You see the number on the screen, but you don’t know the sum. There is a reason for this – Online Slots do not work with money (Euros, Dollars, Pounds, etc.), but with coins.
Let’s clarify the issues regarding bets, bet levels, currencies and paylines in Slots by looking at the major software providers.
In most Netent Slots a coin is equal to 10-25 Dollars/Euros. Why? It depends on the number of lines on each particular machine.
Example: The bet is 1 coin per line and there are 20 lines in total which makes the total bet $20.
This value is called the “Coin Denomination”. Normally you can find this information on the right side of a slot.
In this case, the win is displayed at full scale. The sum awarded on the paylines is the same as what you see on the screen.
However, you can decrease your bet. For this purpose, the Coin Denomination can be reduced to 0.1 which is equal to 1/10 of the original coin value.
In this case, you must divide the win displayed by 10 to get the sum since the value of your coin is 0.1.
The second option (usually displayed on the left side of the screen) shows the Bet Level. What does this mean?
If you want to play with a bet higher than 0.5 or 1 per coin (depending on the Casino), you can increase the Bet Level.
In this case, if the coin denomination is equal to 1, the win will be shown on the full scale regardless of whether you have increased the Bet Level.
You can also increase the Bet Level but set the Coin Denomination to 0.1. Similarly, in this case you will need to divide the win by 10.
However, there is a doubling area on all Netent Slots that always shows your winnings in real money, not coins.
b. Adjusting the paylines is possible (which leads to lowering the Bet Level).
