After selecting the desired bet configuration, press AUTO SPIN, and choose how many spins to play at the current bet settings.

Auto Spin plays the specified number of spins until the STOP button is pressed, a bonus is triggered, or the balance is insufficient to spin again.

Auto Spin is only available in approved jurisdictions.

  • Has unique backgrounds in the base game and Battle Bonus

Both realms have virtually the same long-term expected payout.

Level Up Plus Feature

Permanently increase the payback of your game and unlock new game features with Level Up Plus. Collect XP (Experience Points) by defeating monsters in the Battle Bonus. When your total XP exceeds a given threshold, you level up. See the paytable for details. Your XP and current level are saved across play sessions.

Mystery Multiplier Feature

The Mystery Multiplier Feature can trigger after any base game win that does not also trigger the Battle Bonus. Outcomes are paid only after the Multiplier Reel resolves. The player's current level determines the set of possible multipliers.

Battle Bonus

The Battle Bonus is triggered by getting three Bonus scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. These symbols are only found on reels 1, 3, and 5.

Triggering the Battle Bonus lets you keep spinning as long as your character has health or until you have defeated all three monsters. After each free spin, battle reels spin for the character and current monster. Battle reel symbols do damage, protect against damage, or stun. See the paytable for details. Defeat three monsters to earn 1, 2, 5, or 10 Victory Spins. The number of Victory Spins depends on the character, the realm, and the number of spins it took to defeat the third monster.

In the Forest of Fortune Battle Bonus, there is a Roaming Wild symbol on each spin that appears on any of the first four reels. During the Boar battle, there is a Roaming 2x Wild symbol on each spin that appears on any of the first four reels. During the Dark Elf battle and Victory Spins, there is a Roaming 4x Wild symbol on each spin that appears on any of the first four reels. The Roaming Wild symbols substitute for scatter symbols too.

In the Sea of Glory Battle Bonus, there is one random Wild Reel on each spin. The Wild Reel appears on any reel during the Crab battle. The Wild Reel appears on reels 1, 2, and 3 during the Squid battle. During the Sea Serpent battle and Victory Spins, a Wild Reel appears on reel 5 and on reels 1, 2, 3, or 4. The Wild Reel does not substitute for scatter symbols.

Free spins are played at same line bet and same number of paylines as the triggering game.

Sea of Glory Battle Bonus Monsters


There are four achievements available in the game:

Graphics Quality

Adjust the quality of the graphics to get the optimal animation performance.

BEST mode - Highest quality graphics, but performance may suffer.

HIGH mode (default) - Balance graphics and performance setting.

MEDIUM mode - Lower quality but increased performance.

LOW mode - Minimal graphics, but smoothest animation performance is achieved even on slower computers.


Misuse or malfunction voids all pays and plays.

All line win symbols must appear on a played line and on consecutive reels, beginning with the far left reel.

Only the highest winner is paid on each payline. Line wins are multiplied by the line bet on the winning line. Coinciding line wins on different paylines are added.

Only the highest scatter win is paid per scatter symbol. Scatter wins are multiplied by the total bet.

Scatter wins are independent from line wins and are added to the total amount paid.

Wins are shown in currency.

Changing devices during a bonus may affect your saved XP. This rare case may arise if you begin a bonus on a mobile or desktop device, then play for an extended time on a different device. If you return to the first device and try to finish the bonus, your total XP may revert to the original XP you had when the bonus first began.

In some jurisdictions, regardless of bet size, there is an award cap on any single transaction. See the paytable for details. A transaction includes the results of the Battle Bonus plus the outcome which launched the bonus. If the award cap is reached in the bonus, the bonus ends immediately, even if there are remaining free spins or the character still has health.

Additional Information

Expected Payback

In accordance with fair gaming practices required in most legal jurisdictions worldwide, each and every game outcome is completely independent. The odds of getting any particular outcome are always the same.

The odds do not vary based on prior outcomes, bet size, balance size, time of day, day of week, etc. For example, if the top award is won on a given play of the game, the chances of winning the top award on the next play are exactly the same. Likewise, prior losses do not change future odds.

The expected payback reflects the theoretical return across a very large number of plays by numerous players over an extended period of time. For this game type, the long-term theoretically expected payback is from 93.0% to 96.3% depending on the total number of Level Up Plus levels unlocked. The results for any given player over a play session can vary widely from this long-term, expected average in either direction. The fewer the number of games played, the wider the normal variance of actual payback that may be experienced.
