  • For information on paylines, select Info and go to the Paylines page.
  • Click the ‘+’ and ‘-‘ buttons to choose a total bet.
  • There is a difference between the line bet and the total bet. The line bet shows how much is being bet on a single payline. The total bet shows how much is being bet in total on a single spin. Payouts shown in the paytable (on the Payouts screen) are multiplied by the line bet.
  • Clicking Spin spins the reels with the current bet.
  • The reels can be spun automatically. Click on the Auto Play button to display the list of options. Select the number of spins to be played automatically. During the Auto Play mode, the Auto Play button displays the number of the remaining spins.

You can end the Auto Play mode earlier by clicking the Stop Auto Play button, located in the lower right-hand corner of the game window.
  • Auto Play mode can also be set to Until Feature, which will cause the reels to spin repeatedly until a feature is triggered or you do not have sufficient funds for the next spin.
  • Clicking the Turbo Mode button switches on or off the Turbo Mode thus turning on or off some of the win animations and sounds, and making the reels spin faster or slower.
  • Wins are calculated according to the paytable. Your win will equal your bet multiplied by the corresponding value according to the paytable.
  • On a given payline, only the highest winning combination pays while simultaneous winnings on different paylines are accumulated.
  • In the case of a winning spin, the Win field displays the accumulating winnings.

About payouts:

  • Payouts are listed on the Payouts screen. To find the possible win amount for any given symbol combination, the line bet must be multiplied by the payout.
  • If 2 payline winning combinations occur on the same line, the higher of them is paid out. If more than 1 active payline has a winning combination, the winnings are accumulated.
  • Winning combinations must start from the leftmost reel, and the same symbol has to be on every consecutive reel.

Maximum win limit

  • The maximum win in the game has an upper limit. For more information, see the Terms and Conditions.


  • The Wild symbol can stand for any other symbol, except Scatter, to make the best possible winning combination.

  • Every Wild symbol has a multiplier value: X1, X2, X3 or X5.
  • The multiplier for a Wild symbol applies to any wins the Wild symbol participates in.
