Ways to Win:
As mentioned above there are no traditional paylines, or if you look at it another way, there are 243 different paylines. This means that every symbol works like an adjacent scatter, i.e. you will be paid for a Line Win if you land matching symbols anywhere on three or more consecutive reels (starting with reel 1).
Please note: there is a difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The Line Bet is the same as the coin value, whereas the Total Bet is the coin value x 40. The latter is the amount deducted for each spin.
All payouts are listed on the Paytable screen. To calculate the value of a win, multiply the relevant figure from the Paytable by the value of your coin.
Please read the terms and conditions to view information on maximum payout limits.
