How to Play:

  • Select the Click To Change menu to choose a coin value for the Line Bet.
  • Click the Bet Per Line button to add a coin to the Line Bet. You can bet a maximum of ten coins on each payline. If you wish to bet more than this, you must go back and increase the coin value.
  • Choose paylines by actively clicking the Lines button. You can play a maximum of 20 paylines for each spin. Paylines can also be selected by clicking the numbers 1-20 on the sides of the reels. Please be aware that clicking a number in this manner will also activate all paylines numerically below it.

Note: The Total Bet = Line Bet x Number of Paylines.

  • Press Spin or Bet Max to spin the reels and start the game. Spin will play the slot with your specific bet selections. Bet Max will spin the reels with 20 paylines activated and the maximum of 10 coins staked on the Line Bet.
  • Use the +/- buttons either side of the Auto Start Field if you would like to set a number of spins to be played automatically. Press Auto Start to begin and Stop (replaces Auto Start) to exit.

Note: Winning combinations of symbols will be highlighted on screen after a spin has been completed. A winning spin will activate the Gamble Feature. More information can be found on this in a later section.

Note: Full payout information is displayed on the Paytable, which can be accessed via the Info button on the bottom left of the screen. Line Win payouts are multiplied by the Line Bet. Scatter Win payouts are multiplied by the Total Bet.

Info Pages:

Click the Info button to access important information on payouts, special features and game rules. You can move through the different pages by clicking the arrows on the bottom right of the screen. Use the Back button to return to the reels. The Info Pages are described below:

Paytable – displays all payout information for the main game. Click Show Paylines on the bottom of the screen to load a graphic showing how all 20 paylines are positioned on the reels.

Easter Eggs Bonus – describes the rules and special features of the Easter Eggs Bonus.

Free Games Bonus – describes the rules, awarding and special features of Free Games.

Gamble – explains how to play the Gamble Feature.

Paylines:

You can bet on up to 20 paylines for every spin on Easter Surprise slot. Matching symbols must fall on active paylines to award Line Wins.

Please take note of the differences between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The Line Bet is amount wagered on each active payline. The Total Bet is the sum of all Line Bets, i.e. Line Bet x Number of Paylines.

About Payouts:

A full list of payouts for the main game is displayed on the Paytable Info Page. The figures displayed for Line Wins are multiplied by the Line Bet. Scatter Win payouts are multiplied by the Total Bet.

To pay out as a Line Win, matching symbols must form a chain (starting on Reel 1) on an active payline.

If two or more possible winning combinations occur on the same payline, you will be paid out for the highest value combination only. Wins on different paylines are added up and paid out as a total win.

Wild Symbols:

The Rabbit Symbols are Wild Symbols. This means that they can stand in for all other symbols (except Bonus and Scatter) to make the best combinations on a payline.

There is also a separate payout for two or more Wild Symbols landing on a payline in the same way as a regular Line Win.

Scatter Symbols:

The Scatter Symbols (Easter Gifts) are not required to fall on paylines to be active in the game. If two or more appear on the reels after a spin has been completed, you will win a payout (x Total Bet). If three or more Scatter Symbols appear, you will be awarded the Free Games Bonus.

Bonus Symbols:

The Bonus Symbols (Egg Baskets) can appear on all five reels. They do not have any payout value. Instead, you will be awarded the Easter Eggs Bonus if three or more appear on a payline in the same manner as a Line Win.

Easter Eggs Bonus:

Press Click To Start (appears in place of Spin) to begin the Easter Eggs Bonus. A new screen is opened, showing a basket containing six Easter Eggs.

You will be prompted to choose Easter Eggs to reveal cash prizes. These are totalled and paid at the end of the Bonus.

The number of Eggs you can pick depends on the number of Bonus Symbols that triggered the Easter Eggs Bonus:

The Free Games will begin to play automatically, with the remaining number of Free Games displayed on the top left of the screen.

When all Free Games have been completed, a results screen will appear detailing your winnings from the trigger spin (Game Win) and Free Games (Feature Win).

Select Continue to return to the main game.

Please note:

  • Free Games are played with the same bets and paylines as the spin that awarded the feature.
  • Three or more Scatter Symbols landing on the reels after a spin will award an extra 10 Free Games. This can be repeated an infinite number of times.

Note on Malfunctions:

A game malfunction will result in bets being voided. The stake is returned to the player.

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.
