Right before you spin the reels, you are advised to adjust your bet according to your needs. The value of the in-game coins ranges from 0.01 to 0.05. This can be changed using the plus and minus signs depending on how much you want to put in.
In order to change the number of pay lines played, there’s a ‘select lines’ option. There is also a ‘select coins’ option that’s used to choose the number of coins you wish to wager. If you’re feeling lucky and want to go all in, all you have to do is push the ‘bet max’ button. The ‘spins’ button is where all the magic begins. Once you click that, you will set the reels in motion. If you want to play a successive number of spins without being interrupted, click the ‘expert’ option then click on ‘auto play’. If you are able to get 3 or more scatters, 15 Free Spins are going to be triggered. All wins during a free spin are tripled, and all free spins can be re-triggered if you wish.
Once you’ve played your turn, you can win one of the four progressive jackpots with bonuses that are triggered randomly. After which, you can spin the wheel and uncover which jackpot you have won, of which, there are four: The Mega Progressive Jackpot, which starts at a million credits; the Major Progressive Jackpot, which begins at ten thousand credits; the Minor Progressive Jackpots, which starts at a hundred credits and the Mini Progressive Jackpot which gives you ten credits.
Once you’re familiar with the basics:
• The wild multiplier symbol substitutes others to complete winning combinations and doubles the payout of all combinations that it completes.
• The scatter symbol, which won’t necessarily appear on a specific pay line, can be ‘scattered’ to any position on one of the five reels to complete a winning combination, provided two or more scatter symbols appear. It can also activate a free spins bonus round when three or more of the symbols occur anywhere.
• The Free Spin Session is activated when three or more scatter symbols are displayed on the reels. In a free session, all wins will be tripled. A round normally consists of 15 free spins. However, during a free spin session, the progressive jackpot bonus can’t be activated. Additionally, you will need to activate automatic free spins by clicking on the ‘start free spins’ button. When the session is over the amount you’ve won in the session is added to your total winnings and you can proceed to the regular game mode.
• The autoplay feature allows you to sit back and let the machine perform a number of spins to your liking. All you have to do is select the coin you want to play with then select the appropriate pay lines you want to bet on.
