Game Rules


5-Reels243 Ways to Win

The objective of Archer online slot is to match symbols from left to right across the reels. The game works with an All-Ways feature, meaning there are essentially 243 paylines that cover every possible combination from left to right across the reels. Archer also features Free Games and an Expand & Split Feature.

How to Play:

  • Start by choosing the value of your coin. Do this by selecting the Click to Change button, which will open up a list of coin sizes to choose from. The minimum bet is 25 coins, thus if your coin size was £0.01 the minimum bet would be £0.25.
  • When you have selected your coin size, you must next choose the Bet Multiplier. Clicking on the Bet Multiplier will add another 25 coins to the Total Bet. The Bet Multiplier ranges from x1 to x10. Therefore, the Total Bet is calculated as coin size x 25 (x Bet Multiplier if applicable).
  • When you have selected your bets, click on the Spin button to spin the reels and start the game. If you wish, you spin the reels using the Bet Max button; this plays the game at the maximum Bet Multiplier (x10) for your selected coin size.
  • You can also spin the reels using the Auto Start function. Use the +/- buttons on the sides of the Auto Start button to choose from 10 – 99 Auto Spins. These will play through consecutively without any need for your input. Auto Start will pause if a Bonus is awarded. You can exit Auto Start by selecting Stop, which appears in place of the Auto Start button.
  • When the reels have come to rest after a spin, any winning combinations will be clearly highlighted on screen. The amount won will appear in the Win Field, located above the Spin button.
  • All possible winning combinations are displayed on the Paytable, which is accessed via Info the button on the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. To calculate the value of a Line Win, multiply the corresponding figure from the Paytable by the coin size and by the Bet Multiplier (if applicable). For a Scatter Win, multiply the figure shown on the Paytable by the Total Bet and by the Bet Multiplier (if applicable).
  • After any win, the Gamble Feature is activated; this will be explained in a section below.

Info Pages:

Clicking on the Info button opens up the game’s informational pages, which includes the Paytable. You can move through the different pages using the arrows on the bottom right of the screen. When you wish to return to the main game, click on the Back button. The Info Pages are listed below:

Paytable – shows the payouts for all winning combinations, as well as basic information on game features.

All Ways Feature – explains the rules surrounding the All Ways paylines.

Expand & Split Feature – gives information on the Expand & Split In-Reel Feature.

Free Games – gives information on the Free Games Bonus.

Gamble – describes the Gamble Feature, including information on the Gamble Limit.

About Payouts:

All possible payouts are listed on the Paytable screen.

Please note:

A Line Win is calculated as Figure on Paytable x Coin Size x Bet Multiplier.

A Scatter Win is calculated as Figure on Paytable x Total Bet x Bet Multiplier.

All Ways Feature:

Archer slot does not feature traditional paylines. Instead, it has the All Ways Feature; this means that every possible combination is covered for matching symbols from left to right across the reels. In total, there are 243 ways this can occur. Thus, in another sense, you could say that the game has 243 win lines.

However, you do not need to place a bet on each of the win lines to play the game. The Coin Bet is x 25 to cover the bet on all 243 win lines.

Wild Symbol:

The Wild Symbol can substitute for all other symbols (except for Scatter) to form Line Wins. The Wild Symbol appears on Reels 2, 3 and 4 only.

Scatter Symbol:

The Scatter Symbol is regarded as active if it appears anywhere on the reels. Three or more Scatter Symbols landing anywhere on the reels will award a cash amount and 7 Free Games. The Free Games Bonus will be explained in greater detail in a section below.

Expand & Split Feature:

The Expand & Split Feature can occur in the main game and the Free Games Bonus. However, it follows slightly different rules depending on when it is triggered.

In the main game:

If a Scatter Symbol lands anywhere on the reels it makes any symbol that has an Arrow Border, and is participating in a winning combination, expand to fill the entire reel, but also split so that the original symbols still remain in place. The idea is that this can lead to multiple wins with the extra symbols. Wins are then calculated with the new symbols and displayed in the Win Field.

In the Free Games Bonus:

The main difference is that during Free Games a Scatter Symbol does not need to land on the reels to initiate the Expand & Split Feature. Instead, the feature is triggered whenever any winning combination occurs with symbols that have the Arrow Border. All other parts of the feature work in the same manner as the main game.

Free Games Bonus:

If you land three or more Scatter Symbols anywhere on the reels, you will be awarded the Free Games Bonus, as well as a cash payout. When this occurs:

  • A message will appear telling you that you have won 7 Free Games.
  • You will be prompted to press Click to Start to begin Free Games.
  • The Free Games will play through automatically.
  • The bets are the same as the triggering spin, although the Expand & Split Feature is active with the special stipulations described above.
  • When all Free Games have been played, your Total Win will be displayed in a summary screen. Click on Continue to return to the main game.


You can use the Gamble Feature after any win, providing the amount won does not exceed the Gamble Limit. When you choose to Gamble:

  • Click on the Gamble button to start the feature.
  • You will be taken to a new screen. The objective is to guess whether the next card drawn from a deck of cards will be Red or Black.
  • A correct guess will double your winnings. You can then choose to Collect or Gamble again.
  • An incorrect guess will forfeit your winnings and return you to the main game.
  • You can collect your winnings at any time before making your selection.
  • If successful, you can continue to gamble until you reach the Gamble Limit; this information is displayed on the Gamble Info Page.

Please note: the Gamble Feature is disabled during the Free Games Bonus and Auto Play Mode.
