Online Casino Games - Rules Explained

Secrets of the Amazon

5-Reel, 20-Line SlotSingle Feature Game

The objective of playing Secrets of the Amazon slot is to land matching symbols on the reels. The game offers a Free Games Bonus with up to a 50x Multiplier of all wins, meaning that the payouts on offer with Secrets of the Amazon can dwarf those from regular casino games like online blackjack and roulette.

How to Play:

  • Set the bet for each payline by using the +/- buttons underneath the Line Bet Field.
  • Choose paylines by using the +/- buttons underneath the Lines Field. You can also choose paylines by clicking on the numbers 1-20 on the sides of the reels, although be aware that clicking a number will also activate all paylines numerically below it.

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

  • Press Spin or Bet Max to spin the reels. Choosing Spin will spin the reels with the current selected paylines. Choosing Bet Max will spin the reels with all 20 paylines activated.
  • Use Auto Play if you wish to play a set number of spins to play through automatically. You can choose from 10, 25, 50 or 99 Auto Spins. When Auto Play Mode is on, the Auto Play button changes to Stop. Select it if you wish to exit Auto Play Mode.
  • Press the Turbo Mode button if you wish to speed up the reel animations to enable faster results.

Note: A winning combination will be clearly highlighted on the reels, with the total win shown in the Win Field.

Note: All possible payouts for Line Wins and Scatter Wins are listed on the Paytable. Line Win payouts are x Line Bet. Scatter Win payouts are x Total Bet.

Info Pages:

The Info Pages are launched by clicking the Info button on the bottom left of the main screen. You can flip through the different pages by using the arrows on the bottom right of the screen. Press Back to exit and return to the reels.

Paytable – displays all possible winning combinations and their payouts.

Moonflower Bonus – describes the awarding of the Moonflower Bonus.

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

Paylines – illustrates where all 20 paylines appear on the reels.

Paylines:

Paylines are the directions that matching symbols must follow across the reels to pay as Line Wins. Only the paylines 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 wagered on each individual payline. The Total Bet is the total amount wagered on all active paylines, i.e. Line Bet x Number of Paylines.

About Payouts:

Every possible winning combination and their payouts are listed on the Paytable. Line Win = Payout x Line Bet. Scatter Win = Payout x Total Bet.

Only the highest value Line Win is paid on each payline. Multiple Line Wins can be paid on different paylines. These are added up – along with any Scatter Wins – 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 symbols on a payline.

Wild Symbol:

The Wild Symbol can substitute for all other standard symbols to form the best possible Line Win on a payline. A Wild Symbol cannot substitute for the Scatter Symbol.

When one or more Wild Symbols substitute in a Line Win, the value of the payout will be doubled for that Line Win.

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

Scatter Symbol:

The Scatter Symbols do not need to fall on any paylines to award a payout. Three or more Scatter Symbols in any position on the reels will award a payout (x Total Bet).

Three or more Scatter Symbols will also award the Moonflower Bonus (Free Games).

Moonflower Bonus:

The Moonflower Bonus is the first stage of the Moonlight Free Games Bonus. When it is awarded – as explained above – press Click to Start. This will launch a new screen, where you will be prompted to choose one of three Moonflowers. Picking a Moonflower will reveal the number of initial spins you will have for the Free Games Bonus. The possible number of spins that picking a Moonflower can award depends on the number of Scatter Symbols that awarded the Bonus:

Scatter Symbols

Possible Number of Free Games

5

10-20

4

8-18

3

5-15

When you have made your choice, the number of Free Games will be revealed and begin to play automatically.

Moonlight Free Games:

Moonlight Free Games start directly after the Moonflower Bonus. The total number of remaining Free Games is shown on the bottom left of the screen. The Multiplier for Free Games will start at x1 for the first spin, and increase by +1 for every spin thereafter. Thus, any wins achieved in the second spin will be doubled, any wins achieved in the third spin will be tripled and so on.

If you land three or more Scatter Symbols, you will be awarded extra Free Games. This will be the same amount that was awarded in the Moonflower Bonus. The Multiplier does not change initially, but will still rise by increments of +1 with each extra free spin.  

Please note:

  • The maximum Multiplier that can be achieved is x50.
  • The maximum amount of Free Games that can be played is 50.
  • Free Games are played at the same Line Bet and active paylines as the triggering spin.

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

Return to Player:

The theoretical RTP (Return to Player) is 95.28%.

The following buttons appear on screen and are used to play the slot:

Info – opens the Info Pages, which includes the Paytable and Bonus Feature information.

  • Help – open this help text.
  • Online Support – contact online customer support.

Quick Deposit – select this to make fast deposits without opening the Cashier. The Quick Deposit Menu may appear in a pop up window as a prompt (once only per session) if your balance runs low.

Gadget Bar – when it is enabled, the Gadget Bar will appear on the right of your screen. It can let you access mini casino games, which can be played alongside the current game. The Gadget Bar can also provide information on the latest online bonus offers and promo news at William Hill Casino.

Note on Disconnections:

If you become disconnected from the internet in the middle of a spin in the main game, that spin will still be completed. You can view the results by accessing History form the Menu Tool when you reconnect to the internet. If you were using Auto Play, only the next scheduled spin will be completed.

If you become disconnected from the internet during the Moonflower Bonus or Moonlight Free Games, you will be automatically redirected back to Secrets of the Amazon slot to continue playing the Bonus. All previous wins will be paid and the current Multiplier will be restored.

Note on Malfunctions:

A malfunction will void all bets, with the stake 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.
