SPECIAL SYMBOLS AND FEATURES
PRIZE LADDER AND SYMBOLS
This game features only one reel on which it's possible for 3 types of symbol to land – the Green Crystal, Red Crystal and Golden Shield. The game also features a 20-step, ladder-style paytable. The aim of the game is to climb as high as possible up the paytable by collecting Green Crystals.
Each Green Crystal that lands will allow you to climb one step up the paytable ladder. You can choose to Continue, Take Half or Collect after a Green Crystal has landed.
Continue – stay in the game and continue to play with 100% of your potential winnings.
Take Half – cash out 50% of your potential winnings and continue to play the game round with the remaining 50%. Halving is only available if your currently accumulated win amount is equal or above 1.0 of the currency in which you are playing.
Collect – cash out all of your winnings and end the current game round.
The more Green Crystals that land, the greater your chances of landing a Red Crystal.
The chances of landing either a Green Crystal or a Red Crystal are shown as percentages above the reel. The displayed chance for a Green Crystal also applies for a Golden Shield. The percentages are rounded to 1 decimal place.
If you don't have an active Golden Shield when a Red Crystal lands, the current game round ends, you lose all your stacked win amount that has not been cashed out and you start from the bottom of the prize ladder.
If you have a Golden Shield active, landing a Red Crystal will break the shield and increase the next prizes on the ladder. You can then again choose to Continue, Take Half or Collect from the level reached.
Landing the Golden Shield will activate a shield to protect you from a Red Crystal. The Golden Shield will start automatic spins, where no decisions will be made after Green Crystals land as you have protection and cannot lose the prize. After the Golden Shield is broken by landing a Red Crystal, the automatic spins stop and you can again choose how to proceed.

Landing a Red Crystal the first time after an activation of a Golden Shield during a game round upgrades you to Advanced multipliers and these increases are applied to all yet to be achieved levels on the ladder.

Some values on the prize ladder might be shown rounded down to the second decimal place in case a result based on the current stake would yield a value with 3 or more decimal places.
When halving if the result would yield a value with 3 or more decimal places the game will follow the Round half up strategy.
For example: Тhe number 0.676 will result in 0.68. The number 0.674 will result in 0.67.
If the value is exactly half way it will be rounded up.
For example: 0.675 will result in 0.68
BEST GAMBLE STRATEGY
In order to define the Best Gamble Strategy for this game we need to break a game round into 3 possible scenarios:
1. You have not landed a Golden Shield:
If you have not landed a Golden Shield, the best strategy is to cash out after landing 9 Green Crystals.
If you decide not to adhere to the Best Gamble Strategy and choose to Continue after the 9th Green Crystal then it's best to keep on choosing to Continue and then Collect after the 12th Green Crystal has landed. If after the 12th Green Crystal you again decide to "Continue', then the Best Gamble strategy after each next Green Crystal up until the end is to "Collect".
2. You have already landed a Golden Shield and it has just been broken:
Choosing whether to Collect or Continue immediately after the deactivation of a Golden Shield depends on how many Green Crystals are left in play which is indicated above the reel:
19 Green Crystals - Continue.
18 Green Crystals - Collect.
17 Green Crystals - Continue.
16 Green Crystals - Continue.
15 Green Crystals - Continue.

General types of games
Check the pays menu in the game paytable if you are not sure of the game type.
The values related to each symbol, shown either on the slot scene or on the dedicated Symbol Wins pages of the Pays menu, represent stake multipliers and not credits.
The prize value from one payline is equal to the total stake pided by the number of paylines, multiplied by the symbol multiplier advertised in the paytable. Where multiple wins occur on multiple win lines, the total win values are summed. If more than one win occurs on the same payline, the largest win is paid. Each inpidual payline can pay only once per spin.
Example: Total stake is 2. Total paylines are 20. Symbol multiplier for length of 5 is 300. The win for 1 payline with this symbol and length would be calculated as such: 2 / 20 * 300 = 30.
The prize value from one payline in a Multiline game is equal to the stake multiplied by the symbol multiplier advertised in the paytable. Where multiple wins occur on multiple win lines, the total win values are summed. If more than one win occurs on the same payline, the largest win is paid.
Example: Stake is 2. Symbol multiplier for length of 5 is 20. The win for 1 payline with this symbol and length would be calculated as such: 2 * 20 = 40.
The prize value from one way or cluster in a Ways or Winning Clusters game is equal to the stake multiplied by the symbol multiplier advertised in the paytable. Where multiple wins occur on multiple ways or clusters, the total win values are summed.
Example: Total stake = 2. Symbol win multiplier = 2. Win = 2x2 = 4.
If there is a Scatter Symbol in the game, all wins will be paid in addition to any other symbol wins occurring on the same spin.
