# Winning Multiplier ???

Hello ,
I was playing Buffalo blitz and got a win with the bonus round miltiplyers.
It was with a £20 spin which is 0.50 coins ...
For 6 jacks in a row it is 120 x coin amount = 120 x 0.50.
However my win had 4 separate multiplyers.
Which were . X3, X3 ,X3 and X2
Now how does the multiplyer calculate it ,
because I am sure that I should have won more than I did . #### richmcd

I seem to remember some confusion about this in a different thread. This slot is really counter-intuitive because it ADDS the multipliers together before doing the final multiplication. Which I think is pretty underhanded, as it doesn't explain that in the paytable at all.

So you won 2,280 which is 4,560 coins. 6 jacks are 120 coins, so that's 4640/120=38 payouts for 6 Jacks. Let's see how they calculated that.

The adding makes it really confusing, because the J on the fifth reel now cancels out the wild for some lines. So it's ((2*(3+3+2))+(2*(3+3+3+2)))*120*0.5=2280.

Or, hopefully more clearly, if we treat is as 4 different lines of jacks:

The first line involves the TOP jack in reel 2 and the jack in reel 5. That only involves the wilds in reels 3, 4 and 6, so it's multiplied by 3+3+2=8
The second line involves the BOTTOM jack in reel 2 and the jack in reel 5. Same maths, so it's multiplied by 8 again.
The third line involves the TOP jack in reel 2 and all four wilds. So it's multiplied by 3+3+3+2 = 11
The fourth line involves the BOTTOM jack in reel 2 and all four wilds. Same maths, so that's another 11.

So in total you've got multipliers of 8+8+11+11 = 38.

38*120*0.5=2280

So I'm afraid it's right, but I understand why you're pissed off. No other slot calculates multipliers like this.
