How to Play:
Note: The Total Bet = Line Bet x Number of Paylines.
Note: Winning combinations of symbols will be highlighted on screen after a spin has been completed. A winning spin will activate the Gamble Feature. More information can be found on this in a later section.
Note: Full payout information is displayed on the Paytable, which can be accessed via the Info button on the bottom left of the screen. Line Win payouts are multiplied by the Line Bet. Scatter Win payouts are multiplied by the Total Bet.
Click the Info button to access important information on payouts, special features and game rules. You can move through the different pages by clicking the arrows on the bottom right of the screen. Use the Back button to return to the reels. The Info Pages are described below:
Paytable – displays all payout information for the main game. Click Show Paylines on the bottom of the screen to load a graphic showing how all 20 paylines are positioned on the reels.

You can bet on up to 20 paylines for every spin on Easter Surprise slot. Matching symbols must fall on active paylines to award Line Wins.
Please take note of the differences between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The Line Bet is amount wagered on each active payline. The Total Bet is the sum of all Line Bets, i.e. Line Bet x Number of Paylines.
A full list of payouts for the main game is displayed on the Paytable Info Page. The figures displayed for Line Wins are multiplied by the Line Bet. Scatter Win payouts are multiplied by the Total Bet.
To pay out as a Line Win, matching symbols must form a chain (starting on Reel 1) on an active payline.
If two or more possible winning combinations occur on the same payline, you will be paid out for the highest value combination only. Wins on different paylines are added up and paid out as a total win.
The Rabbit Symbols are Wild Symbols. This means that they can stand in for all other symbols (except Bonus and Scatter) to make the best combinations on a payline.
There is also a separate payout for two or more Wild Symbols landing on a payline in the same way as a regular Line Win.
The Scatter Symbols (Easter Gifts) are not required to fall on paylines to be active in the game. If two or more appear on the reels after a spin has been completed, you will win a payout (x Total Bet). If three or more Scatter Symbols appear, you will be awarded the Free Games Bonus.
The Bonus Symbols (Egg Baskets) can appear on all five reels. They do not have any payout value. Instead, you will be awarded the Easter Eggs Bonus if three or more appear on a payline in the same manner as a Line Win.

Press Click To Start (appears in place of Spin) to begin the Easter Eggs Bonus. A new screen is opened, showing a basket containing six Easter Eggs.
You will be prompted to choose Easter Eggs to reveal cash prizes. These are totalled and paid at the end of the Bonus.
