Ways to Win:

- There is a difference between the coin value and the total bet. The coin value is the bet that you can control, which will be multiplied by the amount of coins (permanently set at 40) for the total bet. The total bet is how much is being bet in total on a single spin.
- Payouts shown in the paytable are multiplied by the coin value.
- Payouts are listed on the Payouts screen. To find the possible win amount for any given symbol combination, the coin value must be multiplied by the payout.
