You can bet on up to 30 paylines for each spin. Paylines work in different directions left to right across the reels. Line Wins will only be awarded if groups of matching symbols fall on active paylines.

Please be aware that there is a difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The Line Bet is the bet made on each active payline. The Total Bet is the sum of payline bets (added up).

About Payouts:

Full payout information is found on the Paytable. The calculations are different depending on what type of win is awarded. Line Win payouts are calculated x the Line Bet. Scatter Win payouts are calculated x Total Bet.

To pay out, a Line Win must form an unbroken chain of symbols (at least two) starting on Reel 1.

Wild Symbol:

Wild Symbols can appear stacked on every reel. This means that they can cover some, or all, of the reel. They can substitute for every other symbol (except Scatter) to make the best possible winning combination on a payline.

Wild Symbols also have a separate payout if they form their own Line Win.

Scatter Symbol:

Two or more Scatter Symbols (Pots of Gold) will award a payout, regardless of their position on the reels. They do not need to be on paylines or be consecutive. Three or more Scatter Symbols in any position will award the Free Games Bonus.

Note: Scatter Win payouts are multiplied by the Total Bet.

Before Free Games begin, you must select two from five Pots of Gold to reveal extra Free Games and/or Multipliers. Your picks can reveal up to 25 extra Free Games and up to a x15 Multiplier.

Free Games will start playing automatically after you have revealed your second pick. All wins achieved during the feature will be multiplied by the Win Multiplier. The remaining Free Games and Win Multiplier are displayed on the top left of the screen. The total win for Free Games is displayed on the top right of the screen.

Three or more Scatter Symbols falling on the reels will award an extra number of Free Games. These will be played with the same Multiplier.

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.
