Game Rules

Geisha Story

5-Reel, 15-Line SlotFree Spins with a Multiplier!

The aim of the base game in Geisha Story is to match symbols across the reels in order to win cash amounts.

To start playing Geisha Story:

  • First you must select your coin size by using the +/- function located on the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. Note: the currency used is GBP for UK online casino players.
  • Next select your Bet per Line by pressing the button located on the bottom centre of the screen. The Bet per Line will be x the Number of Lines to give the Total Stake per spin.
  • Choose the number of lines you wish to play, between a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 15 lines. Do this by pressing the Select Lines button on the bottom centre of the screen. Alternatively, you can select the number of lines to be played per spin by choosing one of the numbers (1-15) from the side of the reels. Note: when selecting from the side of the reels the number corresponds to the total number of lines played, rather than individual lines. Thus if you select ‘9’, 9 lines will be played rather than the 9th payline.
  • When you are happy with your Total Stake, press Spin to start the Geisha Story online slot.
  • The aim of the base game is to match symbols on the paylines across the reels. These must be in a consecutive chain (with the exception of Scatter Wins) starting from reel 1. If you have gained a win from a spin it will be highlighted on the reels and credited to your casino balance. All winning combinations and their respective values are displayed on the Paytable, which can be accessed by selecting the Paytable Button located on the bottom left-hand corner of the screen.

Paylines:

There are only fifteen active paylines in Geisha Story slot game. These lines cannot be moved. You can view the lines by pressing the Select Lines button from the bottom of the screen. All wins (with the exception of Scatter Wins) must be achieved on 1 or more of the active paylines.

Please note that there is a clear difference between the Total Bet and Line Bet. The Line Bet is x the Number of Lines to give the Total Bet. All symbol wins are paid as multiples of the Line Bet, whereas and Scatter wins are paid as multiples of the Total Bet. Multiple wins, including Scatter Wins, are added together and paid as a total.

About Payouts:

  • All Payouts are displayed in the Paytable. This consists of 2 screens, 1 showing the symbol combination wins and the 2nd showing the Bonus and Scatter information.
  • Although multiple wins are possible, only the highest win is paid one each active payline.
  • The Wild Symbol can substitute for all other symbols to form winning combinations, except the Bonus and Scatter Symbols.

Scatter Symbol:

The Scatter Symbol does not need to be on a played payline to be active. A Scatter win is awarded whenever 3 or more Scatter Symbols appear anywhere on the reels. Scatter Wins pay x the Total Bet.

Bonus Symbol:

  • The Bonus Symbol appears on reels 1 and 5 only.
  • When they Bonus Symbol lands on both reels 1 and 5 the Free Spins Bonus is awarded.
  • You are taken to a new screen where you must choose between 6 Japanese FansThis will reveal the number of Free Spins to be played.
  • You will then be taken to a 2nd  screen where you will choose from 6 more fans. This will reveal the size of the multiplier in Free Spins.
  • In the Bonus the reels are the same but all wins are multiplied by the value of the multiplier revealed.
  • Free Spins can be reactivated in the same manner as in the base game. However, you do not choose a new set of spins or multiplier – you will simply be awarded extra Free Spins at the same multiplier as previously awarded.
  • The Total Bet for the Free Spins Bonus is the same as the triggering bet, this cannot be adjusted.

  • You can set between 10 and 99 spins to be played. Alternatively, you can set Autoplay to play through until the Free Spins Bonus is awarded. To do this select ‘Until Feature’ from the Autoplay Menu.
  • You can disable Autoplay at any time by selecting ‘Stop’.

In the Advanced Autoplay:

  • Click the double arrow on the left of the main Autoplay option to open up the advanced settings.
  • You can set the Autoplay to play through until a certain cash amount has been won on a single spin.
  • You can set the Autoplay to play through until a certain accumulative cash amount has been won in a series of spins. For this you can also let it play through until your casino balance has reached a certain amount.
  • You can set the Autoplay to play through until a certain amount of loses have been made, i.e your casino balance reaches a certain level.
  • You can set the Autoplay to play through until the Geisha Story Jackpot has been won.

Player input

Autoplay allows you to do other things whilst playing the casino game. However certain conditions, such as a bonus award, may require your attention to act on the game.

Slot Machine Variants:

Below is an explanation of the different types of online slot games:

3-Reel Standard Slots: The most common type, although they are becoming supplanted by multi-line video slots. These games were made famous by the classic Bars and Sevens slots of Las Vegas Casinos. The main aim is to spin, match symbols and win!

3-Reel Max Bet 2 Slots: In these, unlike the standard versions, you bet a maximum of 2 coins.

Progressive Jackpot: Becoming more and more popular as they offer players massive jackpot awards from a single spin. The idea is that all players make a small contribution to the jackpot fund from each wager. The jackpot grows and grows, until 1 lucky player is awarded the fund. Some casino slots, such as Marvel Slot games available to play at William Hill Casino, offer players several different progressive jackpots levels.

Bonus Game: Most online slots will now have at least 1 bonus game on offer for its players. The most frequent bonus on offer is Free Spins. These usually come with certain enhancements, such as multipliers or extra wild symbols.

3-Line and 5-Line Slot Machines: With these you make bets for each payline. The total bet is worked out by multiplying the number of lines by the bet per line.

Multi-Line Slots: Just like the ones above, you must make a bet per line. These are becoming the most popular form of slot games.

3-Row and 5-Row Multispin Slots: A big change in the evolution of slot games, allowing you to hold certain reels and then spin the others.
