Game features

Expanding Wild

  • When the Wild symbol appears on reel 3, it expands and covers all the positions on the reel.
  • All wins are doubled on paylines that are covered by the Expanding Wild.
  • The Wild will only expand if it will result in a winning combination.

Free Spins

  • 3 or more Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels trigger free spins.
    • 3 Scatters = 10 free spins
    • 4 Scatters = 20 free spins
    • 5 Scatters = 30 free spins
  • The Scatter symbol does not pay any wins by itself.
  • It is possible to win more Free Spins during free spin rounds.
  • Free-spins will play the same bet per line as the original game.


  • The wild symbol substitutes for any symbol except for Scatter and Bonus. It does not pay anything by itself.

Pick Me Game

  • When the Wild symbol simultaneously appears anywhere on reels 1 and 5, the Pick Me game is activated.
  • 2 Pick Me symbols will appear on the reels and players must click one of them to reveal a prize.
  • Another chance to play Pick Me might possibly be offered.
  • All Pick Me game prizes are added to the payline wins.

Bonus games

  • The bonus game starts when 3 bonus symbols appear anywhere on reels 2-3-4. The bonus game includes 4 rounds awarding bet multipliers.
  • The bonus symbols do not have to appear on a winning payline, and they don’t pay any wins by themselves.
  • Each bonus game contains 4 levels where the player must choose an item. In each level the player must choose one item out of 5 available items.
  • Each item has a multiplier attached to it. The bonus prize is calculated using the sum of multipliers times the total bet in the round leading to the bonus.
  • No skill is required or involved.

General jackpot information

  • This game has 2 progressive jackpots.
  • The Jackpot prize is awarded randomly.
  • No symbol combinations are necessary for winning.
  • The probability of getting a jackpot is determined by the size of the bet.
  • The jackpot growth rate is 1% of game bets per jackpot.
  • In addition, the house places a seed amount in the jackpot after every jackpot hit.
  • For these jackpots the seed amount is $800 and $8000, or the equivalent amount in other play currencies offered.
  • This jackpot is shared with other games.
  • This jackpot is not capped in any way.
  • All participants contributing to the jackpot are eligible to win it.

Consecutive jackpot wins

  • Imperfections of internet communications should not affect progressive jackpot fairness or potential jackpot wins.
  • In each progressive jackpot there is a seed amount, used for intro and refills.
  • In each progressive jackpot, there can be two sequential wins, separated by anything from seconds to months apart.
  • Let’s say a given jackpot starts growing based on contributions made during subsequent players’ rounds. Let's suppose the jackpot is now at 1500 USD. If two players win the jackpot seconds apart, the first will win the 1500 USD while the second will win the seed plus all the contributions accrued since the first jackpot drop.
  • The in-game and lobby jackpot counters are refreshed every ~15 seconds (depending on the type of internet connection available to the player) which is very fast, so most likely the second (consecutive) winner would be already aware that the jackpot has been reset prior to winning it.
  • The above is true for both real money and demo money jackpots and for both PC and mobile-based games.

Game RTP

The player's percentage of theoretical expected return is 94.50%, but can be as low as 93.50%, depending on the amount of wagers placed with bonuses and special offers (including but not limited to games bonuses, Free Play, free spins and Jackpot Vouchers).
