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

Note: All payouts are displayed on the Paytable, which can be accessed by clicking the Info button. Line Win = Payout x Line Bet. Scatter Win = Payout x Total Bet.

Note: A winning spin will activate the Double Feature. This will be explained in detail in a section below.

Info Pages:

Press the Info button to launch the Info Pages, which includes the Paytable and information on the Bonus Features. You can move through the different pages using the arrows on the bottom right of the screen. Press Back to exit and return to the reels. The Info Pages are shown below:

Paytable – displays the payouts for all winning combinations in the main game. You can press the Show Paylines button at the bottom of the Paytable screen to load a graphic showing the positions of all 25 paylines.

Knockout Bonus – describes the rules and awarding of the Knockout Bonus.

Free Games – describes the rules and special features of Free Games.

Rocky Feature – describes the special payout for the Rocky Feature.

Double Feature – explains the rules of the Double Feature.


Paylines are the directions that matching symbols must follow across the reels to pay out as Line Wins. Only active paylines (the ones that you bet on) can record Line Wins.

Please note that there is a difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The Line Bet is the amount staked on each payline. The Total Bet is the amount staked on all paylines (added together).

About Payouts:

All possible payouts are listed on the Paytable. Line Wins are calculated x Line Bet and Scatter Wins x the Total Bet.

Only the highest winning combination is paid on each payline. Multiple wins are added together and paid out as a total win.

A Line Win must begin on Reel 1, moving left to right across the reels in a chain of matching symbols.

Wild Symbol:

The Wild Symbol can substitute for all other standard symbols to help form the best possible Line Win on a payline. The Wild Symbol cannot substitute for the Bonus and Free Games Symbols.

Wild Symbols can also form their own Line Wins with a separate payout.

Scatter Symbol:

Scatter Symbols do not need to fall on any paylines to be active in the game. Two or more Scatter Symbols falling in any position on the reels will award a payout (x Total Bet). Three or more Scatter Symbols in any position will award Free Games.

Bonus Symbol:

The Bonus Symbol appears on Reels 1 and 5 only. It does not have any payout value. Instead, you will be awarded the Knockout Bonus if two Bonus Symbols land anywhere on these reels simultaneously.

Rocky Feature:

If the R, O, C, K and Y Symbols appear in consecutive order on the reels, spelling out R-O-C-K-Y, you will earn a payout of 5 x the Total Bet. The symbols (in this situation only) act as scatters, so R can appear anywhere on Reel 1, O can appear anywhere on Reel 2 and so on.

Knockout Bonus:

The Knockout Bonus is awarded when a Bonus Symbol lands on Reel 1 and 5. Press Click to Start to begin the Knockout Bonus.

A new screen is launched, where you will be prompted to choose an opponent for Rocky to fight. The fight will go across 10 rounds. You will earn a payout of 3 x the Total Bet (of the triggering spin) for each round that Rocky wins.

Rocky is guaranteed to win the fight in one of the rounds via knockout. If Rocky knocks out his opponent earlier than the 10th round, all subsequent rounds are deemed to have been won by Rocky and you will be paid accordingly.

Please Note:

  • The Knockout Bonus cannot be awarded during Free Games.
  • The Knockout Bonus and Free Games can be awarded in the same spin, the Knockout Bonus will be played first when this occurs.
  • When the Knockout Bonus has finished, a summary screen will appear detailing the total win from the feature.

Free Games:

Free Games are awarded when you land three or more Scatter Symbols in any position on the reels. Press Click to Start, which will load an Info Screen explaining that you have won 15 Free Games with all wins doubled. Press Continue to begin Free Games.

The Free Games will play through automatically. All Line Wins and Scatter Wins will be doubled for the duration of the feature. 15 more Free Games are added if you land three or more Scatter Symbols in the same manner as the triggering spin. The Multiplier remains at x2.

Please note:

  • Free Games are played at the same Line Bet and number of paylines as the triggering spin.
  • The Knockout Bonus is not available during Free Games.
  • Extra Wild Symbols are added to the reels during Free Games.

When all Free Games have been played through, a summary screen will appear detailing the total win from Free Games and the triggering spin. Press Continue to return to the main game.

Double Feature:

A winning spin in the main game will activate the Double Feature. Press the Double button if you wish to enter the Feature. The objective of the Double Feature is to guess if the next card drawn from a deck will be red or black.

  • A correct guess will double your winnings.
  • An incorrect guess will forfeit your winnings.

If successful, you can keep doubling up your winnings until the maximum double limit has been reached. This information will be displayed in the Double Feature Info Page.

Press Collect at any time to bank your winnings and exit the Double Feature.

Please note:

  • The Double Feature is deactivated during Free Games and when the slot is played in Auto Start Mode.
  • The top of the screen will display the results for previous rounds of the Double Feature.

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.
