How to calculate payline wins
To calculate your total payline coin win, calculate all payline wins and add them together;
To calculate a single payline win, count the number of identical symbols lined up in sequence on the line starting from left to right;
If three or more identical symbols lined up, find the coin win value in the Pay Table. There you can find the value for 3 in a row, 4 in a row, and 5 in a row for all symbols. Only the highest winning combination per line is paid out;
The above doesn’t include any scatter symbols which do not need to be on the payline to award a prize
If the winning combination starts with three Wilds, there can be many ways to interpret the win. In this scenario, only the highest win combination is paid out;
Calculate the total win in your home currency by multiplying the total coin win with your coin value
