  • All winning combinations are added together.
  • All wins will be shown and paid to the player.
  • Any winning symbols will explode and allow new symbols to cascade in from the top, giving the player an opportunity to achieve further wins or scatter symbols.
  • Wild symbols: The Wild symbol can substitute for ALL other symbols EXCEPT the scatter symbols. Wild symbols to do not incur any extra multiplier, unless stated as a multiplier, other than the win for the symbol(s) they substitute. Wild symbols can appear on reels 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.
  • Bonus scatter symbols: These symbols can appear on any reel. Three or more bonus symbols in view will trigger the bonus feature, where the player will enter the ‘Bonus Builder’.

3.2. Free Spins

Once the player has built their Free Spins bonus round, this starts to playout based upon the combination of features picked.

Pick Features:

  • Extra Free Spins = awards 1 to 8 extra spins per pick added together to create an overall total of Free Spins for the bonus round.
  • Random Wilds = awards +1 to +3 wilds per pick. Added together they will then create a total number of random wilds which will appear on the reels per Free Spin, up to a maximum of 4 wilds per spin.
  • Win Multiplier = awards +1 to +4 multipliers per pick. Added together they will then create a total multiplier which will multiply any win in Free Spins by that value.
  • Wild Reel = awards a wild reel (full column of 4 stacked wilds) to every spin in the Free Spins, randomly picking between reels 2 and 6 on each spin. Once used, they will not appear in any further cascades.
  • Incremental Multiplier = will award a multiplier which will increment by +1 per cascade whilst in Free Spins.
  • Last Spin x25 = will award a x25 multiplier on the very last spin in the Free Spins. Any win and subsequent cascades will be multiplied by this amount.
  • Last Spin x50 = will award a x50 multiplier on the very last spin in the Free Spins. Any win and subsequent cascades will be multiplied by this amount.
  • Super Spin = will award an extra win spin after the Free Spins event. This will be a 6 of a kind win using the lowest paying symbols (9, 10 or J).
  • Mega Spin = will award an extra win spin after the Free Spins event. This will be a 6 of a kind win using the Q, K or A symbols.
  • Eskimo Spin = will award an extra win spin after the Free Spins event. This will be a 6 of a kind win using the 4 top paying symbols (‘Binoculars’, ‘Fish’, ‘Eskimo’ and ‘Doughman’).
  • Lightning Multiplier = will award a random chance of multiplier increasing by 1, 2, 3, or 5 on each spin.

All Free Spins wins will be relative to current total bet and the base game paytable.

  • During each spin, a proportion of the money staked is added to each jackpot as per the table below. All players contribute a total of 1.00% of each bet placed to the progressive pots on every game.

  • In the event of a non-responsive game, or problem during a draw, if interruption occurs after the server receives notification, (and outcome cannot be influenced), then results of the gamble stand. In this event, the game will repeat the incomplete draw and display the results to the player when the game is next launched.
