When playing money slots, there are two things that you can control—the Coin Value and the Bet Level. You choose the Coin Value and then decide on the Bet Level. You can decide how much you want to wager per spin, and you do this by determining how many paylines to play, multiplied by the Coin Value, multiplied by the Bet Level.

The bet level is confusing for many players as it changes somewhat. However, it is pretty simple when you understand how it works.

Are you wondering what a bet level and coin value are? This article will take you through these concepts, looking at how they work and which is the most ideal for a slot game.

## Bet Level vs. Coin Level

The bet level controls how many coins you wager per spin and how many coins you can win. A higher bet level will pay you more cash, while a lower one pays less.

Adjusting the bet level makes the game more interesting as you can regulate how many coins you win and the value of the coins you wager. You can walk away with a hefty win if you play with a high coin value and a high bet level. However, your stakes will be higher.

The coin value is how much you want to spend on each payline. The coin value will determine your stake on the spin. For example, if you are playing a 25-payline slot, a coin value of £0.01 will give you a total stake of £0.25 because the line bet is set at £0.01.

The Bet Level and Coin Value work closely together. The only difference between the two is that Coin Value is based on the actual coins you are playing with. The Bet Level is an adjustable multiplier that increases the amount required to make a bet and boosts the winning potential.

Let’s work out an example of the two used together. If you wager 2c per payline, at a Bet Level of 2 for 25 paylines, your total stake will be £ 1.000 per spin.

That is:

£0.02 Coin Value x 2 Bet Level = £ 0.04

£0.04 x 25 paylines =£ 1.00 Total Stake.

With only the Coin Values, you cannot get a stake of £ 1.00 with 25 paylines. So, the bet level allows you some freedom to create different stakes amounts per spin.

## Starburst Slot by NetEnt

Let’s work out a more practical example with the Starburst slot by NetEnt. The game has five reels and ten paylines, and you can play from as little as 10c to £ 100 per spin. If you bet the minimum of the Bet Level is one and the Coin Value of 1, your bet is 10c (10 lines x1 x 1c-10c).

If you increase the coin value to 2c, your bet becomes 20c per spin (10 lines x 1x 2c =20c). increase the coin value to 5c, and your bet becomes 50c per spin (10 lines x 1 x 5c= 50c). You will notice that increasing the Coin Value gives you bigger raises- 10c, 20c, 50c, £1.00, and the maximum £10.00.

Increasing the bet level yields smaller rises. If you have a Coin Value of 1c and increase the Bet Level with one in each subsequent spin, your bets would be 10c, 20c, 30c, 40c, and so on.

Bet Level and Coin Value work together to allow you a more extensive range of different stake amounts. The Bet Level multiplies the Coin Value giving you more freedom to select the stake you want.
