Online Casino Games - Rules Explained

Bonus Bears

5 Reels25 LinesFree Games

The objective of the Bonus Bears slot is to spin the reels and match symbols on the paylines. Bonus Bears is a great choice and may become an all-time favourite like online roulette.

To Play the Game:

  • Begin by choosing your coin size. Do this by using the +/- buttons on the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.
  • Choose how many coins you wish to bet per line by pressing the Bet per Line button on the bottom centre of the screen. Each time you press this button another coin (at your chosen value) will be added to the Line Bet.
  • Finally, choose how many paylines you wish to play. Do this by pressing the Lines button on the bottom of the screen. You can play between 1 and 25 paylines. You can also select the number of paylines by selecting one of the numbers from the sides of the reels. Please note selecting a number in this manner will also select all paylines numerically below it. For example, if you choose 20, lines 1 – 19 will also be activated for the next spin.
  • The Total Bet for each spin is calculated as Line Bet x Number of Lines.
  • When you have selected your lines and bets, press Spin to spin the reels and start the Bonus Bears slot game. Choosing Bet Max will spin the reels at the maximum number of lines (25) at your selected Line Bet.
  • You can also use the Auto Play Feature to set a predetermined number of spins to be played through consecutively. Press the Auto Play button and select from 10, 25, 50 or 99 Auto Spins. When Auto Play is active the Auto Play button will change to Stop, press this to exit Auto Play Mode. The Auto Play Feature will stop and wait for you to act whenever a Bonus Feature is awarded.
  • If a winning spin occurs, it will be clearly highlighted on the reels and the Total Win will be displayed in a box on the right hand side of the screen.  All winning combinations and their values are displayed in the Paytable, which can be accessed by clicking the Paytable button on the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. Line Wins (achieved by matching symbols on a payline) are calculated by multiplying the corresponding value in the Paytable by the Line Bet. For a Scatter Win, multiply the value in the Paytable by the Total Bet.
  • You can view more information on Bonus Bears by clicking the Rules button, located on the bottom centre of the screen.


Paylines are the pathways that matching symbols must follow across the reels to achieve Line Wins. Only active paylines can register Line Wins.

You can view the paylines as they appear on the reels by actively pressing the Select Lines. Alternatively, you can open the Rules page to view a graphic displaying the paylines as they appear on the reels.

Please Note: The Total Bet and Line Bet are different. The Line Bet is the wager made on each individual payline, whereas the Total Bet is the accumulative amount wagered on all paylines.  For a Line Win, multiply the corresponding value in the Paytable by the Line Bet. A Scatter Win is multiplied by the Total Bet.

About Payouts:

All winning combinations and their values are displayed in the Paytable. To work out the value of a Line Win, simply multiply the corresponding value by the Line Bet. For example, if you landed 4 Picnic Basket Symbols on a payline, with a Line Bet of 0.10, the Line Win would be 10, i.e. 100 x 0.10.

In the event of coinciding wins, only the highest win is paid on each payline. Multiple wins can occur on different paylines, these are added together (along with any Scatter Wins) and paid as a Total Win.

Wild Symbol:

The Wild Symbol – represented by the Bear – can substitute for all other symbols (except Scatter Symbol) to help form winning combinations.

Scatter Symbol:

The Scatter Symbol – represented by the Beehive – does not need to appear on any payline to be considered active. If you land two or more Scatter Symbols anywhere on the reels you will receive a cash win, which is calculated x your Total Bet. If you land three or more Scatter Symbols anywhere on the reels you will be awarded entry to the Honey Feature Bonus Game.

Honey Feature Bonus:

When you land 3 or more Scatter Symbols anywhere on the reels the Honey Feature Bonus will be activated. When the Bonus is awarded:

  • You are taken to a new screen, where you will find five trees.
  • Select a tree for the Bear to climb and find Honey Pots.
  • Each Honey Pot found will award a cash amount (a Total Bet Multiplier). Keep selecting Trees until the Beehive is revealed.
  • If the Beehive is revealed you will win 2 x the Total Bet and the Honey Feature Bonus will end.
  • When the Bonus has ended your Total Win will be displayed and you will be returned to the main reels.

Please Note: the Total Bet Multiplier will use the value of the triggering bet.

Please Note: the Honey Feature Bonus can also be activated during the Free Games Bonus.

Free Games Bonus:

When the Bear (Wild) Symbol appears anywhere on reels 2, 3 and 4  you will receive a Scatter Win and the Free Games Bonus will be awarded.

  • You will be awarded 15 Free Games.
  • All wins in Free Games will pay x 3.
  • Free Games can be retriggered in the same manner as the base game.
  • All bets and Lines are the same as the triggering spin. This cannot be adjusted.
  • When the Free Games have been played through your Total Win will be displayed and you will be returned to the Base Game.

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.
