5 Reel Muti-Line Slots
When you play Highway Kings Slot online the aim is to match symbols on active paylines across the game reels. In this
To Play the Game:
Paylines are the line shapes, or paths, that matching symbols must follow across the reels in order to form winning combinations. In Highway Kings (unlike many other online slots) the lines play from right to left as well as left to right.
The Paylines can be viewed by actively pressing the Bet One Button below the reels.
Please Note: only active paylines can register wins. The Scatter Symbol (which will be discussed in further detail below) is an exception to this rule.
About the Winning Tables:
All information on the winning symbol combinations are displayed on the Paytable. You can load the Paytable by pressing the Button marked Pay-Table from the bottom left of the screen.
The Paytable will display the amounts paid for matching symbols on paylines. In Highway Kings the number of matching symbols is referred to as Hits. The paytable will display a chart with ‘X’, ‘XX’. ‘XXX’, ‘XXXX’ and ‘XXXXX’ referring to the number of matched symbols (Hits) on a payline.
To work out the value of the cash amount for a winning combination, simply look at the corresponding number of Hits on the chart. For example, if you landed four Yellow Truck Symbols on an active payline, then you would check ‘XXXX’ under the Yellow Truck Symbol on the Paytable. This will read as 250. To get the Total Win, you must multiply 250 (in this example) by the Line Bet.
Multiple Wins are added together and paid as Total Win. As this slot pays from left to right and right to left, multiple wins are common. However, you will only be paid once for Five of a Kind.
Please Note: There is a difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The Line Bet is the amount wagered on a single line, whereas the Total Bet is the Line Bet x the Number of Lines. The Total Bet is the amount taken from your balance to spin the reels. For the purpose of payouts as displayed on the Paytable, all Line Wins are multiplied by the Line Bet.
The Scatter Symbol – represented by the Exhaust Pipe Symbol – does not need to appear on any payline to be considered active. The Scatter Symbols must land on consecutive reels from left to right or right to left, starting from reel 1 or reel 5. Landing two or more in this fashion will pay a cash award. The payout for Scatter Symbols is displayed in the Paytable. All payouts for Scatter Wins are multiplied by the Total Bet.
When you play Highway Kings online casino slot at William Hill, you will also have the opportunity to play a Lottery style side bet game called Dollar Ball. The aim of the game is to pick 5 numbers from a set of 49, if you match 5 balls you win the Progressive Jackpot. There are cash awards for matching any of 1 through 5 balls. To play Dollar Ball:
Please Note: All the information for the Dollar Ball payouts can be found by accessing the Paytable. When the Paytable screen is open, click the button labelled Dollar Ball Paytable from the top of the screen.
Please Note: The outcome of the Dollar Ball side bet game is independent from the main Highway Kings slot game. You do not need to have a winning spin win in the main game to win with Dollar Ball.
As Highway Kings online slot features a Progressive Jackpot game (Dollar Ball) certain facts about how these jackpots work should be available to the player.
A Progressive Jackpot is funded by taking a small percentage of each player’s wagers to create a pot. This can be built up by a large selection of player’s across a wide range of different games and different online casinos. The Jackpot fund gets bigger and bigger until it is won. Each online casino will provide a base amount to ensure that if the Jackpot is won twice in quick succession the cash amount awarded will still be relatively large. The initial money provided by the casino is called a Seed Fund.
The Progressive Jackpot for Highway Kings (Dollar Ball) works as follows:
Seed (How much the casino provides for the base amount) – 10,000 x bet.
Contribution Rate (the percentage amount from each bet paid into progressive fund) – 10%.
Win Condition (how to win the jackpot) – match 5 winning balls in the Dollar Ball game.
Win requirements (how to be eligible to win the jackpot) – enable the Dollar Ball side bet game.
