What are Winning Lines?
Big Top is a 20-line slot game that may present 20 winning combinations of five symbols across its five reels. A 'win line' is a line of symbols that MAY contain a winning combination when the reels stop. A win line must contain a minimum of three consecutive symbols (appearing from left to right) for any payout to be made. However, this does not apply to Scatters.
For Big Top's 20 lines, winning combinations are as follows:
Selecting Lines for Play
Big Top will always play a 20-line game unless you intervene. That is, it will always proceed on the basis that 20 win lines are possible. Note that when you place a bet on Big Top your bet amount is accepted on a PER LINE basis. The more lines you have selected the greater the amount you need to bet. For example, if you have 10 lines selected and you bet $1, the overall bet amount will be $10.
If you do not want to play a 20-line game then use the Lines Button (+/-) to reduce/increase the number of possible win lines. For example (and with reference to the win-line table above): If you reduce the number of lines to 19, any possible payout from line 20 becomes unavailable. If you then reduce the number of lines to 18, any possible payout from lines 19 and 20 become unavailable, and so on.
Customizing Your Line Selection
You will notice that each line is represented by an Indicator Button, numbered 1-20, displayed on either side of the reels. These indicators are also illuminated when the game is first displayed, meaning all lines are active. You can disable/enable as many lines as you wish by clicking the appropriate Indicator Button.
Notes: It is possible to use a combination of the Lines Button and individual Line Indicator buttons to select lines. If you are doing this then please remember the following: If (-) is pressed the highest selected line is deselected. If (+) is pressed the lowest unselected line is selected.
- Only the highest single payment is made per winning line. For example, five matching symbols pay out the value for five symbols and not for four symbols or three symbols.
- A symbol can contribute to one or more win lines. The win line payouts are accumulated.
- Any Scatter wins are added to the overall payout on the spin, regardless of a Bonus Feature or Jackpot win.
