All About Bet Levels, Paylines, Coins and Denomination

< >

When you see a screenshot from an online slot often you can’t tell 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 it – online slots work not with the currencies (euros, dollars, pounds, etc.) but with coins.

It is time to clarify the issues concerning bets, bet levels, coins and paylines in online slots by leading providers.

1. Netent

a. Currency

In most Netent slots one coin is equal to 10-25 dollars/euros. Why is it so? It depends on number of lines in each particular slot.

Example: the bet is 1 coin per line, there are 20 lines in total, the overall bet is $20.

This value is called “coin denomination”. Normally you can find this option on the right side of a slot.

In this case the win is displayed in full scale. The sum awarded at the paylines is the same sum you see on your screen.

However, you can decrease your bet. For this purpose the coin denomination can be decreased to 0.1 which is equal to 1/10 of the original coin value.

In this case you should divide the displayed win by 10 to get the sum as your coin value is 0.1

The second option (normally it appears on the left side) displays the bet level. What does it mean?

If you want to play with the bet which is higher than 0.5 or 1 per coin (depends on the casino) you can increase the bet level.

In this case if the coin denomination is equal to 1, the win will be displayed in full scale regardless the fact you increased the bet level.

Also you can increase the bet level but set coin denomination at 0.1. The same way in this case you will need to divide the win by 10.

However, there is a doubling area in all Netent slots which always shows your win in real money, not in coins.

b. Paylines adjustment is possible (which leads to bet level decrease).

Example:

2. Microgaming

Slots by this provider are of a different kind. There are 2 options in Microgaming slots: number of coins and coins value. However, the displayed win doesn’t depend on these options. The win is always displayed in full scale which means the number you see on your screen is the same number which is added to your account balance when you win.

a. Currency

The minimal bet per spin for 243-lines slots is between 0.3-0.5 (depends on the slot).

b. Paylines adjustment is not possible.

Example:

3. Quickspin

You can’t change coin denomination or bet level at all but you are offered to choose from a list of prefilled bets.

The wins are displayed in full scale, like in Microgaming slots.

a. Currency

The minimal bet in Quickspin slots is 0.25-0.5 (depends on the slot).

b. Paylines adjustment is not possible.

Example:

4. Amatic (Amanet)

You can’t change coin denomination or bet level but you can choose a bet as it is.

a. Currency

The minimal bet is 10 coins which is equal to 0.1 dollar or euro. The reason for this is that in game 1 dollar is equal to 100 coins and the minimal bet is 10 coins. 10/100 = $0.1 correspondingly.

The win is displayed not in full scale. It should be divided by 100.

b. Paylines adjustment is possible. Some slots allow you to do it by decades of lines (which leads to bet level decrease).

Example:

5. Novomatic (Greentube)

In Novomatic slots you can only change bet per line. The win is displayed in full scale.

a. Currency

The minimal bet is 0.1 (10 lines x 0.01).

b. Paylines adjustment is possible (which leads to bet level decrease).

Example:
novomat_coin.jpg

6. Endorphina

In slots by this provider coin denomination can be changed affecting the displayed win.

If the coin denomination is equal to 0.1 (the option in the top left corner) the win and the bet should be divided by 10. If you raise the coin denomination to 1 the winnings will be displayed in full scale.

One full coin denomination is the same like in Netent slots: 20 dollars or euros.

a. Currency

The minimal bet is 0.2

b. Paylines adjustment is not possible.

Example:
endo_coin.jpg

7. Yggdrasil

You can change only the coin denomination in Yggdrasil slots.

One full coin is equal to 20 dollars or euros. The displayed win should be divided if your bet is lower than one full coin. However, the same like in Netent slots, there is a doubling area which always shows your win in real money, not in coins.

a. Currency.

The minimal bet is 0.2 (20 lines with bet 0.01 per line)

b. Paylines adjustment is not possible.

Example:
ygg_coin.jpg

8. NYX

You can change only bet per line in NYX slots.

The win is always displayed in full scale which means when you change the bet there is no need to divide or multiply anything.

a. Currency. The minimal bet is 0.25 (25 lines with 0.01 per line).

b. Paylines adjustment is possible (which leads to bet level decrease).

Example:
nyx_coin.jpg

9. Thunderkick

You can change only the bet itself. You can choose from the list of prefilled bets set by the provider.

The win is always displayed in full scale which means there is no need to multiply or divide anything.

a. Currency.

The minimal bet is 0.1 (depends on the slot).

b. Paylines adjustment is not possible.

Example:

10. Play’n GO

You can change both the coin denomination and the number of coins in the slots by this provider.

One full coin is equal to 10 dollars or euros.

The win is not always displayed in full scale.

Example: Your bet is 1 coin and the coin denomination is 0.01. In this case you should divide the displayed win by 100.

If your bet is 1 coin and the coin denomination is 1 as well the win will be displayed in full scale.

However, there is a doubling area in all slots by this provider which always shows your win in real money, not in coins.

a. Currency

The minimal bet is 0.1 (10 lines with 0.01 bet per line).

b. Paylines adjustment is possible (which leads to bet level decrease).

Example:
play_coin.jpg

11. ELK

You can change only the bet itself. You can choose from the list of prefilled bets set by the provider, the same like in Thunderkick slots.

ELK slots are the champions in coin denomination. One full coin in these slots is equal to 100 dollars or euros depending on your currency.

The wins are displayed not in full scale which means if your bet is 0.1 dollars you should divide the displayed win by 1000!

a. Currency

The minimal bet is 0.1 (depends on the slot).

b. Paylines adjustment is not possible.

Example:
ELK_coin.jpg

12. Betsoft

You can change both the coin value and the number of coins per line in the slots by this provider.

The win is not always displayed in full scale. It means if you bet 1 coin per line and the coin value is 0.1 the win will be displayed in full scale but if you change the coin value for 0.2 you should multiply the displayed win by 2.

a. Currency

The minimal bet is 0.1-0.3 (depends on the slot)

b. Paylines adjustment is possible (which leads to bet level decrease).

Example:
betsoft_coin.jpg

As can be seen from the above I have analyzed bets, coins, levels and lines of 12 online slot providers. I hope this article will be useful for many of you and especially to those who are new to online gambling and who are often messed up by bets, levels, denominations, etc.
