About the Auto Spin Button
There is an Auto Spin button which is used to start each game without having to click the Play button each time.

The default value for auto spins is 25 (the maximum). After the last auto spin has been exhausted, normal play will resume automatically.
The Scatter Icon

The scatter icon has two functions:

|3||5 X the total bet for the respective game|
|2||2 X the total bet for the respective game|
Scatter wins are added to the line wins
The Free Spins Feature
In addition to receiving the one off Bonus payout for 2 or more scatter icons, 3 or more Scatter icons in the result of a game trigger the free spins feature. Note that 2 scatter icons do not trigger the free spins feature.
- When the free spins feature is triggered, 15 Free Spins will begin automatically (no player intervention required).
- For the duration of the free spins, payouts are awarded at triple (X3) the normal paytable value (excluding a 5 Jackpot icon win).
- The stake (including the number of lines set) that was used to trigger the free spins will be used for the free spin duration.
- If 3 Scatter icons appear in the result of a free spin – 15 more free spins will be added to the current total (180 spins total maximum).
At the end of the free spins, the total winnings for the spins (if any) will be displayed. Winnings (if any) will be credited into the players account and normal play then resumes.
The Jackpot/Wild Icon
The Jackpot icon has two functions:
A Jackpot Icon that pays in the traditional way (consecutive icons left to right only on an active win line - payouts are in multiples of the line stake used for the respective play.)
The Jackpot icon also functions as a wild Icon that will substitute for any other icon (except the scatter icon) to create the highest win possible. A wild icon being present in a win doubles (X2) any standard paytable win it is a part of.
