Exactly. The max payout at any offered stake on a game really shouldn't exceed their T&C maximum payout.
This is an interesting point to debate IMO. I completely see where you are coming from, but... let’s say a slot pays 100x for 5 Bananas, 10,000x for 5 scatters and 100,000x for 5 wilds - someone may want to spin at £10 a spin (for example) and win £1,000 for the bananas, £100k for 5 scatters even though they would be capped in the unlikely event of hitting 5 wilds?
Sports betting would be another example. Let’s say I pick 4 horses and they are 10/1. I might still do £100ew accumulator even though the maximum payout would be hit if they all won. Why? Well if they all placed, I’d get more than putting £25ew on.
