    Dear Someone.

    I don't gamble much myself - fruit machines in arcades is my limit - but I love watching YouTube streams.

    But what I DON'T get, cos nobody's explained it to me, is this X business. 400 X. 200 X. What's the X mean? How does it all work?? It really spoils my enjoyment of the streams cos I don't understand what they're all talking about!

    Please could s omeone pretend they're talking to the brain-dead when they answer and take it easy with me!

    Yours hopefully

    Buddy, I really don't know in what context this is, but "usually" x is a multiplier. 400X would be possibly a factor of 400 times the win.

    Hopefully someone else will have the right take, this is my guess at what you are reaching for.

    I'll give you a SLIGHTLY vague example from a stream I watched from a guy on YouTube. He got a big win, 5 wilds in a row on the centre line, and he got about 2 grand for it (give or take!) He was playing, I think, £5 a spin and he was going 'Wow! I don't believe it! That-that's gotta be about 400 X!" So granted it's a multiplier, as he was playing on a fiver a spin is t hat 400 times what it would have been on roughly one penny a spin? It's the 400 bit that's bugging me, surely the wins on those things can't be being calculated on roughly one penny stakes and then multiplied up from there? Can they?

    I mean on FOBTs you're playing £1 a spin and some of the 'wins' - if you can call them that - are, like, 50p!!! Would that make them 1/2 an X because they're 1/2 of the initial stake? (How the hell can you call that a 'win' when you've just LOST half your stake and don't even have the chance to gamble it up? That's one of the many reasons why I hate FOBTs on the whole.)

    Yours respectfully

    it's better to understand when you are playing, I'm sure for 100%
    basically teach alspath absolutly right about x100, x200 e.t.c it's multiply which mean you'll increase your rate
    if you need another information - just tell, cause all misunderstanding is about wrong question(
