For example I want to play Wonky Wabbits 0.60 per spin.

I can increase the coin value to 0.02 or let the value at 0.01 and increase the level to 2.

Can anyone please explain the difference between these two options?
For me it looks like there is no difference but I`m sure I read in the forums that there is one.

Thanks for any statement and help.

As an example, imagine in scenario 1:
the coin value is one cent, and at 30 lines, you'd have a 30 cent total bet. If you increase the bet value to 2, your bet is now 60 cents.
In scenario 2:
the coin value is two cents. At 30 lines, you bet is 60 cents. If you increase the bet level to 2, your total bet is now 1.20.

The difference between betting one coin value at bet level 2 (60 cents) vs 2 coin value at bet level 1 (60 cents) is nil.
Why then have the difference? Well, for example, if you prefer to play at 90 cents, you cannot do that betting max lines at the 2 coin value on a 30 line slot increasing bet level (60 cents, 1.20, 2.40 and so forth), but you can at the one coin value increasing the bet level (30 cents, 60, 90 etc).

It makes absolutely no difference to the payouts of the game, it's just a mechanism for people to increase the bet beyond what could be achieved with coin size alone I suppose.

Personally I like to play coin values of 0.01 and increase the level or coins bet per line, that way all the wins that you see map exactly to the amount of cash.

So for example a win of 1575 on a coin size of 0.01 is actually £15.75p

Whereas a win of 1575 on a coin size of 0.02 is £31.50p, which I find confusing.

there is absolutely no difference, some people play games with their balance showing coins or cash. If you play with balance in coins and you have £10 and put slot at 1p it will show 1000 coins. If you raise the value to 5p it will show your balance as 200 coins . But actually playing the game it makes no difference whether you increase coin value or level as you still spin same amount and win exact same tho if your level is up it will show you win more coins but will be same value as playing with higher value coin.

Thanks to all

yes that makes a lot of sense. I`m looking a Chopley video at the moment and he said something about value/level and changed it from 0.02/ level 1 to 0.01/ level 2 but I don`t know why. Maybe it`s just his preference to play this way. But I wanted to be sure.

Thanks for explaining why you changed your coin value in your MrGreen video.

IIRC I had it set to 0.02 without realising it, and put it back down to 0.01?

I always play with a coin size of 0.01 unless I forget to change it!

Exactly. I either play with 0.01 or 0.1 coins when playing higher bets.
But because I rarely go above 2 euro bet on Netent, I stick to the lowest coin.
Then when I misclick max bet, which happens quite often, its 2 euro instead of 10

You always want to leave it on the lowest coin size (e.g. 1c) - then when you accidently click "Bet Max" it doesn't hurt so much!

Just to add to Chopley's comment, yes it makes no difference to anything really, just means more hassle working out wins if the base isn't 1 unit as he said.

HOWEVER: On slots like BDBA it makes some permutations of stake possible that wouldn't be on 1-coin. Say you want to bet 1.08 a spin (90p is max at 1p bet) then you raise the coin value to 2p and reduce the bet level (coins) to 6 from 10. Therefore instead of betting 9*10p you now bet 6*18p.

Not sure online but in Land Based casinos the higher the coin value the higher the payout percentage.. The penny machine have to lowest payout percentage.. So your better off playing a nickel machine at 20 lines 1 coin per line then a penny machine at 5 coins per line.. And up.. bettper to play a quarter machine then a penny or nickel, and so on
