Payouts for all winning combinations in the main game can be found on the Paytables. All payouts are multiplied by the Coin Value when calculating winning combinations.

The remaining symbols will fall to the bottom of the reels and new symbols will fall in place. If any new winning combinations appear, winnings will again be paid and the process repeated. Collapsing Reels will continue until no winning combinations appear on screen.
Wild Symbols will act as a substitute for all other symbols (except Bonus) to form winning combinations. Wild Symbols appear on Reels 2-4 only.
Note: Wild Symbols have different properties in Sticky Wild Free Games. This will be explained in detail in a later section.
Some of the High Paying Symbols – Riddler, Batman, Robin – can appear stacked on the reels. This means that they can cover more than one position on the reel, yet are made up of a single image. Each reel position will be calculated separately when it comes to paying out for winning combinations.
