To play the game:

Press CONTINUE on the entry screen to enter the main game. You can also click on DON’T SHOW NEXT TIME to skip the entry screen the next time you play.
The number of active paylines is permanently set at 25. Wins can form on any payline.
Press - or + on the left or the right sides of TOTAL BET to choose the total bet.
Press TURBO MODE to activate Turbo Mode, making the reels spin faster. Pressing the TURBO ON button ends the Turbo Mode session.
Press the SPIN button to spin the reels with the current bet.
During the reel spin the SPIN button changes into STOP. Clicking STOP ends the spin animation and immediately displays the spin result.
In the case of a winning spin, the WIN field displays the accumulating winnings.
On a given payline, only the highest winning combination pays while simultaneous winnings on different paylines are accumulated.
Wins are calculated according to the paytable. Your win will equal your line bet multiplied by the corresponding value according to the paytable.

The reels are spun automatically in autoplay.
To display the list of options, put a cursor over the AUTOPLAY button, and then select the number of spins to be played automatically.
When you want to start autoplay, you must first set limitations for the autoplay session. The set limitations apply for one autoplay session in the current game. You can set the following options:
Loss limit (mandatory): The amount of money you can spend in the following autoplay session. If you reach the set limit, autoplay will stop. Note that bets reduce and wins increase the remaining limit.
Single win limit (optional): Autoplay will stop if you win more than the set amount.
Pressing START starts the autoplay session with your settings, pressing CANCEL returns you to regular gameplay.
During autoplay, the number of remaining spins is displayed.
Autoplay ends when:
The reels have spun the number of times specified.
You do not have sufficient funds for the next spin.
A feature has been triggered.
You can end Autoplay by pressing STOP.

To open the paytable, press INFO.
To navigate the paytable, press the arrow buttons.
Feature and symbol payouts are listed on the PAYOUTS screens. To find the possible win amount for any given symbol combination, the line bet must be multiplied by the payout. The SCATTER symbol is an exception to these rules.
To close the reference pages and return to the game, press the X button.

This game is played with a fixed number of 25 active paylines. The total bet per game round is the line bet × 25.
Paylines are represented by lines that appear over the reels as illustrated in the paytable.
Winning combinations must start from the leftmost reel, and the same symbol has to be on consecutive reels and appear on the same payline.
There is a difference between the line bet and the total bet. The line bet shows how much is being bet on a single payline. The total bet shows how much is being bet in total on a single spin. Payouts shown in the paytable are multiplied by the line bet.
Maximum win limit:

The maximum win in the game has an upper limit. For more information, see the Terms and Conditions.
Wild Symbol:

The symbol with the letter 'W' is the WILD symbol in the game.
The WILD symbol can stand for any symbol except the SCATTER symbol to make the best possible winning combination.
Scatter Symbol:

During the Jax feature, the power of the feature determines the maximum multiplier that can appear on a WILD symbol.
When a wining combination contains multiple WILD symbols, the multipliers are added together. For example, a wining combination that contains X3 and X2 WILD symbols is multiplied by 5.
Kingdoms Rise™ Game Tokens

Game Tokens are unique to Kingdoms Rise™ and can be exchanged for features in the Kingdoms Rise™ Shop.
During regular gameplay, Game Tokens are won on the reels and added to your Game Token balance.
Pending Game Tokens are won alongside Game Tokens on the reels and are added to your Pending Game Token balance. For every 2 Game Tokens you win, 1 Pending Game Token is also won.

All money won from features bought in the Kingdoms Rise™ Shop is real money that can be withdrawn as cash.
The feature entry stake for all features is based on a player’s average bet across all Kingdoms Rise™ games regardless of Token cost. The price of a feature in Tokens relates to the additional enhancements available in the feature. Current average bet values are available on request to the operator customer support.
Wild Vortex Respins Feature

The Wild Vortex Respins feature can be purchased from the Kingdoms Rise™ Shop.
During the feature, a vortex containing WILD symbols lands on reel 2, 3, 4 or 5 and throws the WILD symbols at random symbol positions.

For 300 Game Tokens, you will get 1 extra WILD symbol.
For 750 Game Tokens, you will get 2 extra WILD symbols.
For 1,500 Game Tokens, you will get 3 extra WILD symbols.
If there is at least 1 WILD symbol on reels, they continue to respin.
During each spin, all WILD symbols shift 1 symbol position towards the vortex.
When a WILD symbol reaches the vortex, it is sucked inside and removed from the reels.
The feature ends when all WILD symbols are sucked inside the vortex.
When the Wild Vortex Respins feature ends, the results pop-up window appears on the screen.
Pressing the CONTINUE button returns you to the Kingdoms Rise™ – Guardians of the Abyss main game.
