If 3 or more scatter icons appear ANYWHERE in the result of a game, the free play feature is triggered. The number of lines selected for play does not affect the way the scatters are triggered; the scatter icons can appear in any of the 15 visible reel positions.
The Wild Icon does not count as a scatter Icon
You need at least 3 scatters in a single result to trigger the Free Play feature. How many free plays you get depends on how many scatter icons trigger the feature:
- 3 scatters = 15 free plays – plus X2 the total bet that triggered the free plays*
- 4 scatters = 20 free plays – plus X5 the total bet that triggered the free plays*
- 5 scatters = 25 free plays – plus X10 the total bet that triggered the free plays*
Player A- gets 4 scatter icons in a result while playing 20 lines at $1 per line.
$20 (total bet) X 5 (bonus for 4 scatters) = $100 bonus plus 20 free plays
Player B- gets 5 scatter icons in a result while playing 1 line at $1 per line.
$1 (total bet) X 10 (bonus for 5 scatters) = $10 bonus plus 25 free plays
What happens if I get 3 or more Scatter Icons in a single game?
If you get 3, 4 or 5 scatters in the result of a single game, any other wins will be credited to your account, then the scatter icons will illuminate with a small animation. The talkback pane will inform you that you have won X (number depends on how many scatters in the result) free plays, then the free plays will begin automatically… you do not have to do anything.
- Free plays are free spins that start automatically and consecutively until they are exhausted.
- Before the free plays start, the talkback area will display all the free spins remaining on the left of the display. The right side will display the total win amount generated from the free spins.
- If you get 3 or more scatter icons in a single spin during the free plays, you will receive the line bet bonus as described above and the extra free plays will be added to the existing total and played out immediately after the first set of free plays. Extra free plays are possible more than once in a feature.
- The bet and number of lines selected in the game that triggered the free plays will be used for the duration of the free play period.
- Free Spin wins that contain a wild icon pay X2 the standard paytable win; the same rule applies in “normal” play.
- Total free spins available to the player cannot exceed 997 at any given time. If a player wins free spins that would exceed this amount, they will receive enough spins to reach 997 and any excess free spins are forfeited.
- There is no maximum on cumulative amount of free spins that can be won per feature.
- Scatter and Free Spin wins are added to any other win line payouts received.
- Please note that there is no Alien - WILD ICON on Reel 1.
