Online casinos in Africa already support many of the world’s most famous slots and casino games. However, many of these sites are rather selective regarding the size stakes they will allow you to play with. That may be about to change, though, as Bgaming is bringing high roller slots and games to the tables of many top online casinos. African casinos could be in line to receive them, too. If you’ve got questions about the latest big-money games to go live, we’re on hand to answer them.
What Are High Roller Slots?
Not every software provider is going to get in on this act. A high roller slot is a game that is, in all ways, identical to a conventional slot. The only difference is that it permits extensive wagering options. For instance, if we were to take NetEnt’s Starburst as an example – the basic game and the high roller versions should consist of the same graphics, prizes, and features. The only difference would be that in the original, you can bet up to say, $20 a spin, while the high-roller one might permit stakes of up to $2,000 or $20,000 a spin.
It is not known if NetEnt has plans to do this with their games, but some software providers have already made a move to ensure high roller games are playable. For instance, we know that high roller Bgaming slots are already starting to crop up at casinos.
How Do You Wager on High Roller Slots from Bgaming?
In reality, you should be able to bet on high roller games in just the same way that you bet on conventional slots. Of course, you’re going to want to ensure that you’ve got a sizeable chip stack and balance before you take these games on, though, as the minimum floor bet is likely to approach a medium-sized bet in the original game.
If you’re suitably stacked, then you can use the wagering options below the reels (or to the side of them) to place your bets. These will likely have wagering ranges of $5 up to $50,000, varying from game to game. Of course, if you’re playing in South Africa, those limits will appear in rands, naira in Nigeria, and other currencies for alternative parts of Africa.
What Can I Win Playing These Games?
Here’s the thing – you’ll be able to win the same amount playing low or high roller games in African casinos. Hang on, though, because it isn’t as it sounds. The prize per bet ratio is the same, but that doesn’t mean that the total values are. For instance, a slot may have a top prize of 1,000x a bet in both its low and high rollers editions. However, in the low-roller game, 1,000x a $1 stake is worth a lot less than the high roller game, where it could be 1,000x a $100 stake. As you can see, the “prize remains the same”, but the sum varies based on your bet.
