Maximum bet (usually abbreviated to simply ‘Max Bet’) is the mobile and online slots equivalent of going all in during a poker game. It automatically selects to play all possible paylines with the highest possible wager on each line. Depending on the slot you’re playing, how many paylines it has, and what its highest wager per line is, selecting max bet could see you wagering anything from a tenner to a few hundred quid. With so much at stake, and so much to be gained, we thought we’d run you through the reasons you should always be using the max bet feature at GoWin and other casinos.
Samey, monotonous spins can get boring, but when you hit ‘Max Bet’ on a mobile slot, it’s thrilling. There’s no bigger risk you can take at a mobile casino, and just saying ‘screw it, I’ll give it a shot’ can give you such a huge rush of adrenaline and for many mobile gamblers that’s what it’s all about. You don’t start wagering on slots unless you enjoy the excitement of the unknown and the max bet feature is the biggest unknown of all.
As we say time and again, to gamble responsibly, you should never be playing with money you can’t afford to lose, so if you can afford to splash out on a max bet, you’re guaranteed the most exhilaration you can find at a mobile casino.
While it’s simple logic that if you play more lines and more cash, you’ll get a higher payout, what you may not realise is that often the max bet feature unlocks a higher payout level on your chosen slot, meaning you can often win up to 10x more than the same number of lines at the wager level should be worth. It’s all about the casinos rewarding you for playing max bet on a slot – first it’s the reward of the thrill, then the reward of special features, and there’s even the reward of bigger payouts.
With the majority of slots, all the features of the game are available no matter how much you’re betting, and if the slot is progressive, there’s no lower limit on wagers which might trigger it. That’s not the case with all slots, though. There are some slot machines that require a maximum bet to trigger a feature or to be eligible for a progressive jackpot.
This might sound a little harsh, and if you’re unable to afford max bet play, then these games probably aren’t for you, but if you can, getting access to a whole new (and often secret) part of a great game is reward in itself.
We’ll level with you, the odds aren’t in your favour to win every max bet spin you ever try, but if you can and want to give a few max bet spins a go, there’s nothing stopping you. Provide you’re not going to completely bankrupt yourself, I can highly recommend picking a great slot and just giving max bet a go at least once in your life. What’s the worst that can really happen?
All joking aside, the max bet feature is a massive gamble (literally). For all the adrenaline rush of clicking that button, and the endorphin rush if you win are some of the best feelings a mobile casino can elicit, the sad fact is that this feature wasn’t made for everyone. Sure, you might be a high roller with money to burn, or perhaps you’ve had a really successful winning streak and you want to do something daring with the money you’ve landed, but always use the max bet feature cautiously.
Careless or over use of max bet is the most sure-fire way to transform a healthy bankroll into nothing in no time. We can’t stress enough – only ever play max bet with money you can afford to lose!
