Winning Cascades

  • After each symbol evaluation, any symbols that are involved in a line win, ways win or Mega Block, will disappear. Symbols above any symbols that have disappeared will drop down to occupy the vacant symbol positions. Vacant symbol positions will be filled by new symbols dropping down. This process of removing winning symbols and replacing them is a cascade.
  • Once all vacant symbol positions are filled, the symbols will be evaluated again. After the evaluation, if there is another win, a new cascade will take place.
  • For each win evaluation after the first cascade, a multiplier will be applied to all line and ways wins as follows:
    • After the 1st Cascade: all wins x2
    • After the 2nd Cascade: all wins x3
    • After the 3rd Cascade: all wins x5
    • After the 4th Cascade: all wins x7
    • After cascade number 5: all wins x10

  • A symbol may not be part of more than one Mega Block.
  • When 2 or more Mega Blocks can be formed from the available symbols, the first Mega Block found, starting from the top left corner and moving right, then down, will form first.
  • Substituting Wild symbols do not contribute to forming a Mega Block, but a Mega Block may be made entirely of Wild symbols or Lychee Wild symbols.
  • Provided at least one part of the symbols in the block is part of a winning line or way, the whole Mega Block will disappear and collected into the collection tally meter.
  • Mega Block will disassemble when it is no longer a grid of 2x2 because of the cascading action.
  • When at least 3 of a kind fruits have been collected, the corresponding feature will be activated for the following spins until no more fruit available in the corresponding collection tally meter. Each spin consumes one of the collected fruit.
  • If a fruit is collected when its feature is already active, it will be added to the collection tally.
  • More than one Fruit Feature may be active at the same time.
  • The Fruit collection tally and active collection features are linked to the total bet amount. Any change in bet can change which collection features are active and how many fruits of each type have been collected in the tally.
