In addition to knowing what game to play (game family), and which paytable, the vpFREE2 member should be concerned about what game variant or game option to consider. Game variants and options can dramatically alter the return of the base game (the return we track in our Pay Tables ), turning an otherwise unplayable game with bad return into a good opportunity.
In general (and by gaming regulation is most locations), games options that involve an increase of wager to trigger a bonus feature must have the same or higher EV than the base game with the same paytable. The cost of the improvement is often an increases the variance.
