Let’s consider another well-known NetEnt slot – Space Wars.
The most valuable symbol pays 1,000 coins per line. 1 coin is equal to $0.40.
There are 40 lines in this slot. So, multiply 1 000 coins by 40 lines and we get $400.00. This is the amount you will receive if the Crystals appear on all of the reels.
Obviously, we can’t ignore the Jack and the Beanstalk Slot. Many players ask if it is possible to win 5 Harps in the bonus game and what the maximum payout is.
Let’s find out! First of all, notice the information about this Slot:
As you can see, the maximum payout for the most valuable symbol is 1 000 coins for 1 coin bet. All wins with Wilds and Harps are multiplied by 3.
Let’s do the math:
the math will be the same as in The Creature from the Black Lagoon slot, i.e. Wilds are not counted as symbols but only substitute for other symbols. We will then count the values for the most valuable symbol.
Multiply 1 000 coins by 20 lines to get 20 000 coins. Multiply this by 3 since the Wild symbol gives a 3×3 multiplier.
We get 60 000 coins. This is the maximum payout if you hit 5 Harps.
In other words, the maximum possible multiplication per spin is 3000x.
As mentioned above, there is a simpler way to count – you just need to multiply the value of the most valuable symbol by the number of lines and 3.
Slots Book of Ra, Book of Aztec, Book of Dead and other such machines.
Let’s consider the Slot Book of Ra and other machines of this type.
If you don’t understand how the winnings are calculated, let’s find out.
All these slot machines have the same working principle.
Book of Ra developed by Novomatic.
As is mentioned in the slot’s information, the pay table shows values based on the size of your bet, and these will change if the bet changes.
The main feature of these Slots is the bonus game. A specific symbol is chosen at the start of a bonus game. When several of these symbols appear on the reels, you win. It is not necessary that the symbols are located on consecutive reels. There may be gaps between them and you still get the prize.
This Slot pays as follows:
With the exception of the bonus game, the most valuable symbols pay from 2 on a line; the rest – 3. When 2 such symbols appear, you will get the value of your bet back while if 5 appear you will win the offer of 500 bets! This is the payout for a single line.
What happens when this symbol is chosen as a bonus symbol within the bonus game and appears on 5 reels? It expands and will pay out over 10 lines.
Multiply 500 bets by 10 lines and you get 5 000 bets!
Check this on the paytable.
The Top symbol pays $50.00 with $0.10 bet per line. With 10 lines in total, the maximum payout for this slot with this bet is $500.
Book of Dead developed by Play’n GO
According to the paytable, this Slot is identical to the previous one, but the payout is shown only for the 1 coin bet. Still, there is an additional slot showing the actual win.
Slots with expanding symbols that pay only on consecutive reels
Let’s take a look at the Casanova slot machine.
This machine offers a bonus game with expanding Wilds. But unlike the previous Book slots, Wilds and other symbols pay only on consecutive reels.
It is easy to do the math on maximum multiplication as well:
With a $0.20 bet, 5 Casanovas pay $100.
In the bonus game, these 5 symbols expand to cover all the reels, resulting in a 20-line payout.
So $100 x 20 lines = $2000 meaning that the maximum multiplication per spin is x1000 for this machine.
We hope you found this series of articles useful. Now you know how to read the pay tables, how wins are calculated, and how to calculate the maximum multiplication. Using the examples above, you can calculate the payouts for any slot machine!
