Using the Gold Rush Showdown Slot
Before hitting the spin button you will want to take a look at the stake options and lines. Both of these will alter your total stake which is shown on the righthand side of the screen.
Stakes range from 0.10 to £/€/$1 and can be toggled up or down using the respective buttons.
You may choose to reduce the default maximum of lines from twenty to any number with a minimum of one. These lines will then use one coin, the value of which is chosen using the stake buttons (see above).
You will notice that a yellow gamble button has been included. You can use this if you want to gamble any win during normal play or after a bonus game.
