I apologise in advance as this is a real newbie question but what is the significance of the bet level setting? I was just playing "Thief" at Unibet and if I increased the bet level, my stake increases. What is the difference between increasing the size of your coin value and increasing the size of the bet level? I looked in the game info but I could find no reference to the meaning of the level anywhere.

As far as I know bet level and coin size just gives more variety to the size of bets.

Best seen on a 9 line slot(playing 9 lines)
Coin size 0.01-The bet levels would be 0.09 0.18 0.27 0.36 0.45....
Coin size 0.02-levels would be 0.18 0.36 0.54 0.72 0.90...
Coin size 0.05-levels would be 0.45,0.90 and so on.

I don't think it makes any difference if you increase the coins or the level if the bet remains the same.

Usually on slots, "coins" refers to a game with a specified number of pay lines (3 coins bet per line on 30 lines, for example).

"Level" refers to a game that "scatter pays" - that is, there are no specific paylines, rather, you are paid for a win regardless of where the symbols land on the reels.

For example, on a 243-way game (a scatter pay game), let's say you are betting on level 1, on a 1c coin value. This particular bet will cost 50c. If you change the level to 2, you are now betting \$1.00. Change the coin value to 2c at this point, and you are still betting 100, it's just now the stake changes to \$2.00. It's essentially the same thing as "coins", it's just that the "level" bet is proportionate to the minimum bet of the slot, since scatter pay games have a specified minimum bet attached.

Hope this clears it up.

The above two posts seem a bit over-complicated to me!

Bet Level is simply how many coins per line you are betting:
Most slots have two bet controlling options: The size (value) of the coins you want to play with, and how many coins per line to bet.

Right now I get it. On most slots I play there is just a setting to change coin value like 0.01,0.02,0.05,0.10 etc but it has not been called "level". I think that is why I have been getting confused when seeing things like "level 1", "level 2" etc without any reference to a monetary value.
I was beginning to think it was some kind of multiplier on bonus rounds and exotic things like that.

Thanks to all above who helped to clarify this for me.
