These will play through without your input, only stopping if a Bonus Feature is a awarded, or you select Stop.
  • You can play Bai Shi with Turbo Mode on or off. When it is on the animations and reels spinning will be skipped, allowing for more rapid play.
  • When the reels have come to rest after a spin, any winning combinations will be clearly highlighted on screen and the winnings shown in the Win Field.
  • All winning combinations and their values are shown on the Paytable, which can be accessed via the Info button on the bottom left-hand corner of the screen.

Info Pages:

Selecting the Info button opens the Bai Shi Info pages, which includes the Paytable. These pages will explain the different game components and Bonus Features. You can navigate through the different pages using the arrows on the bottom right of the screen. To return to the reels, select the Back button. The Info Pages are as follows:

Paytable – shows all possible winning combinations and their payouts. Also gives basic information on the awarding of the Bonus.

Majestic Night Free Games – describes how the Majestic Night Free Games Bonus is awarded, and the rules surrounding Free Games.

Paylines – shows a graphic of how all the paylines appear on the reels.

Paylines:

Paylines are the directions which matching symbols must follow from left to right across the reels to record a Line Win. Only active paylines, i.e. the ones that you bet on, can record Line Wins.

Please note: there is a difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The Line Bet is the wager made on each individual payline. The Total Bet is the accumulative amount bet on all active paylines.

About Payouts:

All possible payouts are listed on the Paytable screen. To calculate the value of a Line Win, multiply the figure displayed on the Paytable by the Line Bet. For a Scatter Win, multiply the figure displayed on the Paytable by the Total Bet.

Only the highest winning combination is paid on each individual payline. Multiple wins can occur on different paylines; these are added together and paid as a total win.

Stacked Wild Symbol:

The Bai Shi (White Lion) Symbol is stacked across all reels. It acts as a Wild Symbol, and can thus substitute for all other symbols except the Bonus Symbol.

During Majestic Night Free Games more Wild Symbols are added to the stacks.

The Wild Symbol can form its own standalone Line Win.

Scatter Symbol:

The Scatter Symbol appears on Reels 2, 3 and 4 only. It does not need to appear on any payline for it to be considered active. If you land three Scatter Symbols anywhere on the aforementioned reels you will win a cash amount. You will also win Majestic Night Free Games, which is explained in detail below.

Majestic Night Free Games:

When you land three Scatter Symbols as described above you will be awarded Majestic Night Free Games. It works as follows:

  • Press Click to Start to launch the Free Games Bonus.
  • You will be awarded 5 Free Games, which will play through automatically.
  • The Free Games are played on an enhanced reel set, with extra Wild Symbols added to all stacks.
  • If you land three Scatter Symbols in the same manner as the base game, you will be awarded a further 5 Free Games.
  • When all Free Games have been played a summary screen will appear detailing how much you have won.
  • Press Continue to return to the main game.

Please note: the Line Bet and paylines for Majestic Night Free Games will be the same as the triggering spin. This cannot be adjusted.

How to play casino games

Here's a rundown of some of our most popular online casino games, including how to play them, and which offers the highest payouts.

Online slots

Online slots are played more than any other online casino games. They’re relatively simple to play, which makes them a great option for beginners. Slots can also offer large payouts, particularly for a jackpot win.

Playing slots online is very straightforward. The simplest form of online slots are three-reel slots, which are based on the traditional fruit machines you may have seen in arcades. In these slots, you’ll see three columns and three rows of symbols, with the middle row being the payline. You place your bet and spin the reel, and if you get a winning combination, you win the amount stated on the paytable.

There are many other kinds of slots online available at William Hill Canada, such as five-reel slots and video slots, but they essentially work in the same way. While the odds of winning at slots are slimmer than other online casino games, they do allow you to play with small stakes on a wide variety of slots. Slots with a jackpot offer a larger prize pool, so let’s have a look at those next.

Jackpot slots

The main difference between regular online slots and jackpot slots is that the former have a lower maximum payout. With jackpot slots, however, there are larger top prizes, sometimes offering up to a seven-digit win on just a single spin.

While 'jackpot' can refer to a fixed huge cash prize awarded during jackpot games, the term is also used to describe progressive slot games. For fixed jackpot slots the size of the jackpot is, well, a fixed amount. With a progressive slot, the size of the jackpot increases each time a player places a bet on the game. Progressive jackpot slots are a great way to add to your online gambling experience. These games can offer some of the most exciting experiences of all casino games, as they provide you with the chance to win the biggest payouts you'll find online.

Online roulette

Online roulette games consist of a wheel with spaces that are either red or black and are numbered from 1-36. This popular game is easy to learn and even easier to play. All you need to do is predict where the ball will land and place your bet. The roulette wheel then spins, and if it lands on where you placed your bet, you win.

You may think that only one variant of roulette exists in online casinos, as this is typically the case at real-world casinos. However, at William Hill Canada, you’ll find multiple variants available, including a European version with one zero, and an American version with two. You’ll also find a French version that offers slightly improved odds if you bet on an even-money proposition.

Online blackjack

To win at online blackjack, you need a higher number than the dealer without exceeding 21. You are dealt two cards and can ask for another card as many times as you want before you reach 21.

One of the great things about playing online blackjack is the number of variants available. At a real-world casino, you’re restricted to just one or two games, but you'll find more here at William Hill Canada, including Blackjack Scratch, Royale Blackjack, and Blackjack Super 21.

Live casino games online

This is where online casino technology really comes into its own. Some players enjoy the thrills provided by a real-life casino but also enjoy the convenience of playing online. Live casino offers the ultimate experience to these players. The only difference between playing live casino at home and playing at a land-based casino is that with the former, the action is live-streamed to your device.

You’ll be playing at real tables, with real cards, and with real croupiers dealing your cards or spinning the wheel. Depending on the game, you'll also be playing with other players from all over the globe. With the ability to enjoy live chat with both players and the dealer, live casino offers a fantastic opportunity to enjoy an immersive experience while playing your favourite casino games online.

Enjoy free online casino games with casino bonuses

An online casino bonus is a great way to boost your balance with extra funds and make playing your favourite online slots even more fun. Casino bonuses come in a number of different forms and are applicable to a variety of online casino games.

Almost all casinos bonuses are subject to their own terms and conditions, but what you get back is certainly worth it. If you look at our current bonuses, you’ll see our welcome offer, along with any other offers we may have available. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all bonus, so just make sure to keep your eye on our bonus page in order to enjoy our selection of games the fullest.
