Note: Winning combinations of symbols are clearly highlighted on the reels.

Note: You can view the payouts by clicking the Info button. Line Win payouts are multiplied by the Line Bet. Scatter Win payouts are multiplied by the Total Bet.

Info Pages:

Select Info to open pages displaying various reference information, including the Paytable. Use the arrow buttons to change pages. Press Back to exit and return to the reels. Brief descriptions of the Info Pages are provided below:

Paytable – opens the Info Pages, which includes full payout information.

Super Magical Free Games – explains the rules and special features of Free Games.

Mystery Stacks – describes the behaviour of the Mystery Stack Symbols.

Paylines – illustrates how all 20 paylines are positioned on the reels.


Magical Stacks slot can be played with up to 20 paylines. These are the directions that matching symbols must follow (left to right) across the reels to pay as Line Wins.

Please be aware that the Line Bet and Total Bet are not the same. The Line Bet refers to the amount staked on each payline. The Total Bet refers to the amount staked on all active paylines added up.

About Payouts:

Every possible payout is listed on the Paytable Info Page. For Line Wins, take the relevant figure and multiply by the Line Bet. For Scatter Wins, multiply the figure by the Total Bet.

A Line Win consists of matching symbols on a payline. The chain of symbols must start on Reel 1, working left to right across the reels.

Only the highest value combination of symbols will be paid on each individual payline. You will be paid for Line Wins occurring on different paylines.

Wild Symbols:

Wild Symbols can substitute for all other standard symbols to make the best possible Line Win.

A chain of Wild Symbols on a payline can also pay out as a Line Win.

Note: Wild Symbols do not substitute for the Scatter Symbol or Mystery Stack Symbols.

Scatter Symbols:

The Scatter Symbols will pay out if three or more land in any position on the reels.  When this occurs, you will also be awarded Super Magical Free Games.

Note: The Payout for the Scatter Symbols is multiplied by the Total Bet.

Mystery Stack Feature:

The Mystery Stack Symbols can land on several different positions on the reels. When they fall on the reels, they will all change to one of the other symbols. Line Wins are then calculated with the new symbols in place.

Please note:

  • Mystery Stack Symbols will not change to Scatter Symbols or Multiplier Symbol (used in Free Games only).
  • Line Wins are not guaranteed during the Mystery Stack Feature.

Super Magical Free Games:

10 Free Games with a Dynamic Multiplier are awarded when three or more Scatter Symbols land anywhere on the reels. Press Click To Start to launch the Free Games.

At the beginning of the Free Games a random Multiplier is awarded. This can be x2, x3, x4 or x5. Payouts from the first spin will be multiplied by this number. If the Multiplier Symbol lands on Reel 5 after any spin, the Multiplier will be increased by +1 for the next spin. If the Multiplier Symbol does not land on Reel 5, the Multiplier will decrease by -1. The Multiplier cannot exceed x5 or drop below x2.

An enhanced set of reels is used during Free Games. More Mystery Stack Symbols are added to the reels, which can potentially lead to more Line Wins.

When all Free Games have finished, a summary screen will appear detailing the total win from Free Games (Feature Win) and the triggering spin (Game Win). Click Continue to go back to the main game.

Please note:

  • The Multiplier Symbol appears on Reel 5 only and does not have any payout value.
  • Free Games are played at the same Line Bet and number of paylines as the triggering spin.
  • Three or more Scatter Symbols on the reels will award a further 10 Free Games. The Multiplier will remain the same.

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.
