The game disconnects if you do not take any actions for a specific number of consecutive minutes (this number varies depending on jurisdiction); the session recovery feature will save the game progress so that the next time the game is loaded, you can continue where you left off.

In the event of technical difficulties resulting a dropped connection to the game server, the game you were playing is saved automatically and will load the next time you establish a connection to the game server. You will not be able to reconnect to the game server for the first 30 seconds after the disconnection.

Note: In case of malfunction all pays and play are voided; any bet that was not yet accepted will be voided, any bet that was unsettled will be refunded.

2. How to Play

Note: If you do not have enough money to play a game, the bet can be set to the minimum selectable amount through a dialog window informing about this.

All winning ways pay from left to right. Winnings on different ways are all added. Only the highest winning combination on each way is paid. Winnings from the bonus rounds and free spins are added to the total win.

2.1. Flash version

Note: On the info bar located under the main game buttons, you can view the current BET, your BALANCE and your current WINNINGS, in your currency.

To play, follow these steps:

  1. Use the coin value select button to choose a coin value. The coin value select button is located in the bottom-right side of the main game screen and shows the currently selected coin value.

  2. Click one of the BET buttons to place a bet and spin the reels one time or you can use the left and right arrows on your keyboard to select a BET and then click SPIN. To place the same bet again and spin the reels one more time, click SPIN.

    Note: BET 1 places a bet of 1x coins, BET 2 places a bet of 2x coins, BET 5 places a bet of 5x coins and BET 10 places a bet of 10x coins. Your bet will be: the coin bet (BET 1, 2, 5 or 10) times 50 coins times coin value.

The total bet, in your currency, is displayed on each of the BET buttons.

The total amount won, in your currency, according to the paytable, is shown in the WINNINGS box. For each winning combination, the amount won, in your currency, is the number of adjacent winning symbols multiplied by the amount shown in the paytable for the number of reels involved in the win multiplied by the coin value.

Note: The number of adjacent winning symbols (or ways) is calculated by multiplying the number of winning symbols on each reel. For example, if there is 1 winning symbol on reel 1, 1 winning symbol on reel 2 and 2 winning symbols on reel 3, then the number of adjacent winning symbols is 1 x 1 x 2 = 2. In this case, the number of reels involved in the win is 3 – in the paytable, you can view the gain for 3 reels for the winning symbol.

2.2. Mobile version

Note: You can view your current total Bet and Balance, in your currency, in the bottom-left side of the main game screen. You can view the current Credit, in coins, and the current Win, in your currency, in the bottom-right side of the main game screen.

To play, follow these steps:

  1. Tap Settings button to go to the settings menu and set up your total bet by selecting the following:

    • the coin value: on the right of the current coin value, tap + to select a higher coin value or tap to select a lower coin value

    • the coin bet: on the right of the current coin bet value, tap + to select a higher value or tap – to select a lower value

    Note: The total bet, in coins, is displayed in the settings menu, in the Total Bet box and it will be: the coin bet (BET 1, 2, 5 or 10) times 50 coins.

  2. On the right side of the main screen, tap the Spin button Spin button to spin the reels one time.

The total amount won, in coins, according to the paytable, is shown in the Win popup. For each winning combination, the amount won, in your currency, is the amount shown in the paytable for that winning combination for the number of reels involved in the win, multiplied by the coin value.

Note: The number of adjacent winning symbols (or ways) is calculated by multiplying the number of winning symbols on each reel. For example, if there is 1 winning symbol on reel 1, 1 winning symbol on reel 2 and 2 winning symbols on reel 3, then the number of adjacent winning symbols is 1 x 1 x 2 = 2. In this case, the number of reels involved in the win is 3 – in the paytable, you can view the gain for 3 reels for the winning symbol.

3. Special Symbols and Features

The Wild, Bonus and Free Spins symbols can appear in normal game play as well as during free spins.

3.1. Stacked Wild

Exists only on reels 1, 3 and 5.

The wild symbol (Wild Drop) exists on the reels in 3 consecutive wild formations (stacked).

Note: Can appear on one of the three reels (reels 1, 3 and 5), on two or on all three reels at the same time.

If on a reel we have all 3 wilds visible, at the next 2 spins that reel will only go down by 1 position (2nd spin will have 2 visible wilds, 3rd spin will have 1 visible wild).

Can replace any symbol except Free Spin or Bonus.

Stacked wilds will not be kept when switching from normal play to Free Spin play and vice versa.

3.2. Stacked Free Spins and Wild

Exists only on reel 3.

Three stacked Free Spin symbols (Free Spins) on the same reel during Base game and Free spins round trigger the Free Spin bonus round.

3.3. Stacked Bonus and Wild

Exists only on reel 3.

The Bonus can award one of the following:

The Bonus symbol acts as a Wild symbol (no matter how many are visible on the reel); can replace any symbol except Free Spin or Wild.

During the Bonus round, the player has to choose the question marks to uncover bonus amounts, as well as:

3.4. Wild

When stacked WILD is not fully visible on the reels, it transforms into regular WILD. The WILD symbol replaces any other symbols except stacked wild.

3.5. Progressive Jackpot

The RTP displayed in the Overview section includes the Progressive Jackpot RTP as well.

The progressive can be won at any bet, only during the Bonus Round.

With every bet, the base progressive jackpot value (the progressive pool) is increased with 0.5% of that bet.

Note: The base progressive value (progressive pool) is a value stored in Euros and it is associated to a coin value of 10 Euros (which may not be available for you to select in the game): 1,000,000.00 seed + any 0.5% increments from all bets.

The Progressive Jackpot counters display the progressive jackpot value for the currently selected coin value. The displayed jackpot value is proportional to the selected coin value and is a portion of the progressive pool, calculated depending on the currently selected coin value.

Note: The maximum available progressive is paid when playing with the maximum available coin value.

Jackpot Seed examples (in your currency):

Coin value 0.01

Jackpot Seed Value

1000


Coin value 0.02

Jackpot Seed Value

2000

The Jackpot value is refreshed once every 3 seconds. Depending on the clients’ internet service provider as well as their hardware, server-to-client delays will vary from player to player and from message to message.

Between two successive refreshes of the Progressive Jackpot counter, it is possible for two or more players to win the jackpot in close succession. In this case, the first player that wins the Jackpot is awarded the Progressive Jackpot amount in full, while the subsequent winner is awarded the minimum guaranteed Progressive Jackpot, as well as 0.5% of the bets placed between the two successive Jackpot wins.

4. Autospin feature

The loss limit setting allows stopping the autospin feature automatically when the selected limit plus your cumulative winnings minus your cumulative bets is less than 0.

Note: The autospin feature does not automatically start free spins or the bonus round – player input is required.
