How Betting Works in Western Belles


Before you take a trip out to the wild west, make sure you’re familiar with how to bet when you play Western Belles:

  • The game features a total of 40 paylines
  • Using the Left (-) and Right (+) Arrows to decrease and increase your line bet (displayed in currency)
  • The 40 LINES + WILD REEL display show the number of paylines currently in play and whether or not the Wild Reel feature is enabled
  • Playing all 40 lines activates the Wild Reel feature
  • You can also use the Left (-) and Right (+) Arrows to decrease and increase the number of lines played (and toggle or disable the Wild Reel feature)
  • Activating a payline will cost 1 coin, and toggling the Wild Reel feature costs 160 coins
  • Once you’re happy with the number of lines and your bet, press SPIN to lock in your choices and start your turn


The Wild Reel Feature: How It Works


  • Enable Wild Reels by selecting 40 LINES + Wild Reel at a total cost of 200 coins
  • As soon as this feature is enabled, one all-Wild reel will materialize in each spin during the base game
  • On every free spin, Two all-Wild reels appear
  • This all-Wild reel can hypothetically appear in any one of the five reels, and its position is randomized for each spin
  • These All-Wild reels contain bonus symbols, and your odds of triggering a Bonus does not increase or decrease whenever a Wild Reel is enabled


Understanding the Stacked Wilds Feature


  • With the Stack Wilds feature, every reel is loaded with groups of four (or more) consecutive Wild symbols


Triggering the Free Spins Bonus


  • The Free Spins Bonus is activated when three Bonus scatter symbols appear anywhere on the center reels (reels 2,3, and 4)
  • Triggering the Free Spins Bonus will grant you five free spins
  • Once the Free Spins Bonus is active, you’ll find that these free rounds feature more plentiful, rewarding Stacked Wilds bonuses that what you would find in the base game
  • The Free Spins Bonus can be retriggered during a free spin in the same way as it could during the base game
  • The Free Spins Bonus ends automatically as soon as 235 free spins occur consecutively, even if you’ve retriggered another round


How Western Belles Pays Out


  • Wins occur when line win symbols appear on consecutive reels of a played line, beginning with the left-most reel
  • Player only gets the highest earned payout on a given payline
  • Your line bet acts as a multiplier that determines the size of your payout on any winning line
  • If line wins occur on more than one different payline for a given spin, these win totals will be added together
  • Scatter wins exist independently of any line wins and are multiplied by the total size of your bet
  • Player receives only the highest earned scatter win for a given spin
  • Wins are shown in currency
  • Consult the paytable to see the award cap for any given transaction
  • A transaction involves any initial outcome plus whatever may occur during a Free Spins Bonus
  • Any bonus rounds will end immediately as soon as the award cap is reached


The Auto Spin Feature


  • The AUTO SPIN feature lets you play a certain number of rounds automatically at the same number of lines and line bet levels
  • This feature will finish out the number of spins that you have specified, except when you press the STOP button, trigger a bonus round or reach a balance that is too low to spin again at your current betting configuration
  • Auto Spin is only approved for use in certain jurisdictions


Adjusting Graphical Settings


Western Belles’ graphics can be adjusted in order to deliver the best possible gameplay experience

  • BEST mode – Sharpest graphics, but performance may be slower
  • HIGH mode (default) – Best balance of quality graphics and performance setting
  • MEDIUM mode – Lower-resolution graphics, but increased performance
  • LOW mode – Poor graphics, but smooth performance across even older computers

What to Know About Expected Payouts

  • Each and every spin of the reels is considered to be an independent event. The odds of achieving any specific outcome will always the same the same and does not vary based on prior outcomes, bet size, balance size, time of day, day of week, or any other such factors
  • If the highest possible payout is won on a given play of the game, the chances of receiving that same payout on any other turn will not change. Likewise, prior losses do not improve future odds
  • The expected payback is defined as the theoretical return across a very large number of plays by numerous players over an extended period of time
  • The results for your particular gameplay can vary significantly both positively and negative from this expected return
  • The fewer turns one plays, the large that this variance could theoretically be from the expected payout
