- If more than 1 active payline has a winning combination, the winnings are added up. If 2 winning combinations occur on the same line, you will be paid the value of the higher winning combination.

The Bell symbol is the WILD symbol in the game. The WILD symbol can stand for any other symbol to make the best possible winning combination.
The WILD symbol expands to fill any reel it lands on, standing in place of all other symbols on the reel. All winning combinations that result from the WILD expanding will pay out like standard winning combinations.
When 5 WILD symbols land consecutively on an active payline, starting from the leftmost reel, and form a 5 of a kind win combination, the jackpot is awarded. More information about the jackpot is below.
One of the possible wins in this game is the progressive jackpot, built up by all the casinos that offer the game. A small percentage of each bet placed by every person who qualifies for the jackpot and plays this game in any of the various participating online casinos, is added to a common pot. You can see the current jackpot amounts at the top of the game screen. To win the progressive jackpot, you must land a WILD 5-of-a-kind winning combination.
After a jackpot has been won, a new pot is started, with a guaranteed minimum amount of money (called a seed). This ensures that even if you get a jackpot result in a game right after someone else has won the jackpot, you will still get a large win.
The jackpot for this game works like this:
Seed (how much money the jackpot starts out with):
2,500 x total bet
Contribution rate (what percentage of each bet goes into the jackpot):
Win condition (the result you have to get to win the jackpot):
5 WILD symbols on an active payline.
- If you get disconnected in the middle of a game round, your game does not change the value of the Jackpot. The state of the game up to that point is remembered by the casino; the next time you log in you can finish your game round with the same odds and without placing a new bet.
- If a Jackpot is being discontinued (a game is closed and removed from the casino client), you will be notified of it by the casino.
