  • You can also set a predetermined number of spins to be played through consecutively using the Auto Play Function. Click on the Auto Play button and choose between 10, 25, 50 or 99 Auto Spins. These will play through without your input, only stopping if a Bonus Feature is a awarded, or you select Stop.
  • You can play Bai Shi with Turbo Mode on or off. When it is on the animations and reels spinning will be skipped, allowing for more rapid play.
  • When the reels have come to rest after a spin, any winning combinations will be clearly highlighted on screen and the winnings shown in the Win Field.
  • All winning combinations and their values are shown on the Paytable, which can be accessed via the Info button on the bottom left-hand corner of the screen.

Info Pages:

Selecting the Info button opens the Bai Shi Info pages, which includes the Paytable. These pages will explain the different game components and Bonus Features. You can navigate through the different pages using the arrows on the bottom right of the screen. To return to the reels, select the Back button. The Info Pages are as follows:

Paytable – shows all possible winning combinations and their payouts. Also gives basic information on the awarding of the Bonus.

Majestic Night Free Games – describes how the Majestic Night Free Games Bonus is awarded, and the rules surrounding Free Games.

Paylines – shows a graphic of how all the paylines appear on the reels.


Paylines are the directions which matching symbols must follow from left to right across the reels to record a Line Win. Only active paylines, i.e. the ones that you bet on, can record Line Wins.

Please note: there is a difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet. The Line Bet is the wager made on each individual payline. The Total Bet is the accumulative amount bet on all active paylines.

About Payouts:

All possible payouts are listed on the Paytable screen. To calculate the value of a Line Win, multiply the figure displayed on the Paytable by the Line Bet. For a Scatter Win, multiply the figure displayed on the Paytable by the Total Bet.

Only the highest winning combination is paid on each individual payline. Multiple wins can occur on different paylines; these are added together and paid as a total win.

Stacked Wild Symbol:

The Bai Shi (White Lion) Symbol is stacked across all reels. It acts as a Wild Symbol, and can thus substitute for all other symbols except the Bonus Symbol.

During Majestic Night Free Games more Wild Symbols are added to the stacks.

The Wild Symbol can form its own standalone Line Win.

Scatter Symbol:

The Scatter Symbol appears on Reels 2, 3 and 4 only. It does not need to appear on any payline for it to be considered active. If you land three Scatter Symbols anywhere on the aforementioned reels you will win a cash amount. You will also win Majestic Night Free Games, which is explained in detail below.

Majestic Night Free Games:

When you land three Scatter Symbols as described above you will be awarded Majestic Night Free Games. It works as follows:

  • Press Click to Start to launch the Free Games Bonus.
  • You will be awarded 5 Free Games, which will play through automatically.
  • The Free Games are played on an enhanced reel set, with extra Wild Symbols added to all stacks.
  • If you land three Scatter Symbols in the same manner as the base game, you will be awarded a further 5 Free Games.
  • When all Free Games have been played a summary screen will appear detailing how much you have won.
  • Press Continue to return to the main game.

Please note: the Line Bet and paylines for Majestic Night Free Games will be the same as the triggering spin. This cannot be adjusted.

Return to Player:

The theoretical RTP (Return to Player) is 95.99%. This is based on a long term average and not a guarantee for a single session.
