To play the game:

  • Line bets are chosen by clicking Bet per Line. Each click increases the line bet by a certain amount. When the maximum amount is reached, clicking the button again resets the line bet to its initial value.
  • Paylines are chosen by clicking Lines. Each click activates a payline. When all paylines are activated, clicking the button again resets it to one active payline. Paylines can also be activated by using the numbered buttons on either side of the reels. Selecting a high payline includes all the lower ones too. For example, selecting payline 6 also activates paylines 1 through 5. Clicking Bet Max activates all paylines with the currently selected bet per line and spins the reels.
  • Total bet per game round = line bet X active paylines.
  • Clicking Spin spins the reels with the current selection of lines and line bets. During the reel spins the Spin button changes into Stop. Clicking Stop ends the spin animation and immediately displays the spin result.
  • Reels can also be spun using the Auto Start function. Clicking + or – above Auto Startselects the successive number of spins to be enabled. Clicking Auto Start spins the reels. The Auto Start button changes into Stop during the Auto Start mode. The Auto Start mode ends when the reels have been spun the number of times determined by the player, or when the player clicks Stop.
  • Wins are calculated according to the paytable. Line win = line bet X corresponding multiplier according to the paytable. Scatter win = total bet X corresponding multiplier according to the paytable. The paytable can be accessed via the Info page.
  • On a given payline, only the highest payline winning combination pays while simultaneous winnings on different paylines are accumulated.
  • In case of a winning spin, the Win field displays the accumulating winnings. The Win ticker can be stopped by clicking anywhere on the screen to display the total win amount immediately.
  • Payline wins and the total win are also displayed on the strip located at the bottom of the reels or the game window.

Info page:

  • Clicking Info opens the reference screen describing different game components. Clicking the arrow buttons at the lower right-hand corner of the screen enables navigating between the different info screens.
    • The Payout Table screen shows all winning combinations. When opened after a winning spin, the winning symbol combinations (number of symbols and bet multiplier) are highlighted and blink.
    • The Free Games screen describes the symbol combinations necessary to trigger the Free Games feature and describes the Free Games feature rules.
    • The Money Back Feature screen explains the rules of this feature and how it pays.
    • The Paylines screen illustrates all possible paylines and explains the rules for calculating their wins.
  • Clicking Back exits the Info screen and returns to the game.


  • Active paylines are represented by lines that appear over the reels. Paylines can be activated and their shape displayed by progressively clicking Lines.
  • Only active paylines can register wins.
  • 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 the game round. Payouts shown in the paytable are multiplied by the line bet.

The Scatter symbol is an exception to these rules. More information about the Scatter symbol can be found below.

About payouts:

  • Payouts are listed on the Payout Table screen. To find the possible win amount, the line bet must be multiplied by the payout.
  • If two payline winning combinations occur on the same line, the higher of them is paid out. If more than one active payline has a winning combination, the winnings are added up.
  • Winning combinations must start from the left most reel, and the symbols have to be consecutive.

The Scatter symbol is an exception to these rules. More information about the Scatter symbol can be found below.

Maximum Win Limit

The maximum possible win from a single betting round in the game is £/€ 500 000. A betting round is initiated by a paid spin, and can lead either to a single win or to a series of wins by triggering additional paying features like Bonus and/or Free Games. Should the resulting total win become greater than £/€ 500 000, the excess amount will be ignored and the player will receive exactly £/€ 500 000.

Money Back Feature

The Money Back feature is always active during the main game but is not available during Free Games.

The Money back feature counts the consecutive non-winning spins of each payline, for every separate bet per line used to play on that line, and if a single active payline does not win for 50 consecutive times with a particular line bet, the player wins 50 times the cash bet on that line.

The number of consecutive non-winning spins for each line is saved separately for every line bet and restored when returning to a previously used line bet. The same statuses are saved and restored when a payline is turned on and off as well as when the player exits and re-enters the game. If an active line has a winning combination, the line’s counter resets to zero.

As the game progresses, the Money Back status of each line for the current total bet is displayed in a circular frame around the numbered buttons on either side of the reels. A green circle with no progress on the frame denotes that there are 50 more spins. A yellow, orange, or red line that fills the frame in a clockwise fashion denotes more and more consecutive non-wins for that particular line. A full circle denotes fifty consecutive non-wins and a win of the Money Back feature for that line.

When hovering with the mouse over one of the lines, a small popup appears, revealing the number of spins left for a Money Back win on that line with the current line bet.

Wild symbol

The Wild symbol can stand for any other symbol, except Scatter, to make the best possible winning combination. There is also a separate payout for 3 or more Wild symbols on an active payline, as seen in the Paytable. This is paid out instead of the regular symbol win if the win amount from Wilds is larger than the win from the regular symbols (by Wild standing in).

The Wild symbol does not appear during Free Games.

Scatter symbol

The Scatter symbols do not have to occur on any particular payline. If there are 3 or more Scatters in any position in the spin results, the payout is multiplied by the total bet and added to the payline winnings, if any.

In addition, if 3 or more Scatter symbols appear simultaneously anywhere on the reels during the main game, the player wins 12 Free Games with a X2 multiplier. More information on the Free Games round can be found below.

The Scatter symbol does not appear during Free Games.

Free Games

3 or more Scatters in any position on the reels simultaneously during the main game trigger 12 Free Games with Random Freezing Wild feature and all wins doubled.

After every spin, a random number (between 0 and 5) of symbols are covered by Wilds, which remain “frozen” in their position for a random number of 1 to 4 spins, during which they substitute for all symbols. New Freezing Wilds cannot appear one on top of the other.

More Free Games cannot be triggered during the Free Games round.

To start the Free Games, click on Click to Start. A message appears saying that a Free Games round follows. Click on Continue to begin and after a while the Free Games begin automatically.

During the Free Games, the reels are spun automatically using the same number of lines and bets per line as on the spin that won the Free Games. After each spin, the win is displayed in theWin field. The Free Games Win field shows the accumulated winnings from the current Free Games.

After all Free Games have been completed, a result board summarizes the winnings. Game winshows the winnings that were received from the spin that triggered the Free Games. Feature winshows the winnings that were received during the Free Games. Total win shows the aggregate winnings (Game Win and Feature Win added up). 
Clicking Continue will return you to the main game. When returning to the main game, clicking anywhere on the screen stops the win ticker and displays the full prize.

If the Free Games are triggered during the Auto Start mode, the feature begins after the player clicks on Click to Start and then Continue on the screen introducing the Free Games. When all Free Games have been played and the player clicks Continue on the screen summarizing the Free Games win, the Auto Start mode resumes. When returning to the main game, clicking anywhere on the screen stops the win ticker and displays the full prize.
