Abstract

A slot machine method, apparatus, and computer readable storage to implement a slot machine game which offers the player a variable multiplier. The value of the multiplier is not known until after the player pays to activate the variable multiplier, upon which the value of the variable multiplier is determined based on predefined criteria for the variable multiplier that is being activated. The cost to activate the variable multiplier is based on the predefined criteria as well as an award amount that a new award (the new award being equal to the award amount multiplied by the determined value of the variable multiplier) is based upon. The award amount can, for example, be the previous overall win.
