Ultimate Fire Link Cash Falls denomination choice

A lot of players will change around their denominations while playing multi-denomination games, and a player had a simple question regarding this:

Can you explain the advantage or disadvantage to changing denominations while in play?

Vincent W.

The biggest changes that come out of changing denominations will come out of the game structure:

  • The number of lines on a game may change with denomination
  • Some of the bonus jackpot prizes, such as the Mini or Minor, changes with denomination

The overall odds of winning between one denomination and another tend to be about the same. Some players like to change their denomination when nothing’s happening as a way of shaking up the machine, but a player won’t really know if they’re doing better or worse than they did if they stayed put, because you don’t know what the outcome of staying put would have been.

So it’s a neutral change really from that perspective, as it could be better, worse or the same.

Finally, if you are increasing your denomination, you are generally increasing the overall payback over time on a game with each incremental step up in denomination. 

If you play at a higher denomination level for longer periods of time, over time you would be expected to do a bit better because of that higher payback level. In a short session the difference will be outweighed by the shorter term volatility and variance of a slot machine.

Overall it won’t have a huge impact to jump around on denominations, so it isn’t likely to help or hinder anything.

    I always seems to get a good line hit after I change denominations. Not sure why, but I try it when its not hitting.

      Well no complaints there Rhonda! While the games aren’t designed to do that, if it does, that certainly works out!
