Easter Surprise

5-Reel, 20-Line SlotEaster Eggs Bonus Game

The objective of playing Easter Surprise is to spin the reels and match symbols on the paylines. The slot also boasts a Free Games Bonus and Easter Eggs Bonus. Players of online blackjack and casino card games will also enjoy the Gamble Feature, which offers you the chance to double your winnings on the turn of a card.

How to Play:

  • Select the Click To Change menu to choose a coin value for the Line Bet.
  • Click the Bet Per Line button to add a coin to the Line Bet. You can bet a maximum of ten coins on each payline. If you wish to bet more than this, you must go back and increase the coin value.
  • Choose paylines by actively clicking the Lines button. You can play a maximum of 20 paylines for each spin. Paylines can also be selected by clicking the numbers 1-20 on the sides of the reels. Please be aware that clicking a number in this manner will also activate all paylines numerically below it.

Note: The Total Bet = Line Bet x Number of Paylines.

  • Press Spin or Bet Max to spin the reels and start the game. Spin will play the slot with your specific bet selections. Bet Max will spin the reels with 20 paylines activated and the maximum of 10 coins staked on the Line Bet.
  • Use the +/- buttons either side of the Auto Start Field if you would like to set a number of spins to be played automatically. Press Auto Start to begin and Stop (replaces Auto Start) to exit.

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.

Info Pages:

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.

Easter Eggs Bonus – describes the rules and special features of the Easter Eggs Bonus.

Free Games Bonus – describes the rules, awarding and special features of Free Games.

Gamble – explains how to play the Gamble Feature.


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.

About Payouts:

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.

Wild Symbols:

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.

Scatter Symbols:

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.

Bonus Symbols:

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.

Easter Eggs Bonus:

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.

The number of Eggs you can pick depends on the number of Bonus Symbols that triggered the Easter Eggs Bonus:

Number of Bonus Symbols:

Easter Egg Picks







Please note:

  • The cash prizes in the Easter Egg Bonus are proportional to your Total Bet.

Free Games:

Press Click To Start to begin playing Free Games.  You are initially awarded 10 Free Games with a x3 Multiplier.

The Free Games will begin to play automatically, with the remaining number of Free Games displayed on the top left of the screen.

During Free Games all wins are tripled, with the exception of anything gained in the Easter Eggs Bonus. Winnings are totalled and displayed on the top right of the screen.

When all Free Games have been completed, a results screen will appear detailing your winnings from the trigger spin (Game Win) and Free Games (Feature Win).

Select Continue to return to the main game.

Please note:

  • Free Games are played with the same bets and paylines as the spin that awarded the feature.
  • Three or more Scatter Symbols landing on the reels after a spin will award an extra 10 Free Games. This can be repeated an infinite number of times.

Gamble Feature:

Any winning spin in the main game will activate the Gamble Feature. Press the Gamble button if you wish to play.

The objective of the Gamble Feature is to correctly guess if the next card drawn from a deck will be red or black. A correct guess will double your winnings, whereas an incorrect guess will forfeit your winnings and end the feature.

You can select Collect at any time to bank your winnings and end the Gamble Feature.

Please note:

  • There is a maximum double up limit for the Gamble Feature. The information is displayed on the Gamble Info Page. If you reach this figure, your winnings will be automatically collected.
  • The Gamble Feature is disabled when using Auto Start and during Free Games.

If internet connection is lost when playing Free Games or Easter Eggs Bonus, you will be automatically redirected back to complete the feature. In both cases, previous wins will be paid into your balance.

Note on Malfunctions:

A game malfunction will result in bets being voided. The stake is returned to the player.
