To set the bet, click the bet button. This transfers funds from your account (demo or real money) into the bet. If you go over your intended bet, continuing to click the bet button will eventually return the bet amount to the minimum again. IMPORTANT: See also the "About the Bet Max button" section.
Traditionally, the win line is the centre line running across the reels. Symbols must appear on the win line as indicated on the paytable in order to win. This game allows the possibility of choosing up to 20 win lines per game. You select how many win-lines to play with the Lines button. Each line you choose will have one unit of the bet you have selected (in step 1) attached to it, as each line can win separately in any single game. If you ignore the Lines button, then the default setting for the game will be used, which is all 20 lines.
Each click of the Lines button moves the line selection from 1 through to 20 respectively. Each click of the lines button adds one line to the selection. If you continue to click the lines button after 20, the cycle starts again at 1 line. The win line(s) and reel positions illuminate with each press of the button. Animations highlight each reel position and a "pathway" is shown making line selection clear and easy.
To make things even clearer each line has its own progressively colour coded button/indicator, starting with 1 (red) through to 20 (violet/purple).
It is possible to add or remove specific lines from those selected with the lines button. The line indicators (labelled 1-20 and colour coded) serve as buttons which can be used to add or remove win-lines from the selection. The individual line buttons are click on (illuminated), click off (not illuminated):
NOTE: If you have customized the win lines selected (by individually adding/removing win lines), and then click the lines button; all lines of a lesser number than the highest line number selected will be switched on plus the next win line up in sequence (as detailed in the beginning of step 2).
The following is a chart of the 20 win-line paths available for selection. When a win line is selected it is accompanied by an animation which clarifies its position, as described previously.
NOTE: Win lines pay left to right ONLY (except scatter Icon).
If you click the Bet Max button, any bet/lines previously set will be overridden.
PLEASE BE AWARE OF THE FOLLOWING:
Or put more simply:
All of the information inputted so far is displayed just under the reels. Now click the Spin button to spin the reels to start the game. When the reels stop, any wins will be registered automatically and added to your account (if you collect the win).
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.
Click the Paytable button to view the win multiples and icon list for the game. Payouts are shown in multiples of the winning line bet. A minimum of three consecutive icons from left to right on an active win line is required to win. The only exception is the scatter icon, which is explained in its own section.
Rules regarding payouts
|Any Elf (red or green)||8||16||32|
|Star Scatter||x2+15 Free Spins||x3+20 Free Spins||x10+25 Free Spins|
|Christmas Tree (wild card) substitutes for any Icon (except scatter). A wild card doubles (X2) the value of a win it is part of (free spins included).||X2 value of any win|
If you press the Auto button, each game will automatically start without pressing the spin button. This will continue until you get something that requires player intervention like free spins. In Auto mode, the Spin button becomes the Stop button, which is selected to resume manual play again.
If 3 or more scatter icons (Star Icon) 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 Card 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:
NOTE: The bonus payment is paid before the free spins commence.
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.
Scatter and Free Spin wins are added to any other win line payouts received.
The wild card will substitute for any icon (except the scatter icon) to make the best win possible. In addition, the wild card doubles (X2) the paytable value of any win it is a part of. Including any normal paytable win and any Free spin win.
Note: 2 or more wild cards being part of a win do not increase the bonus payout.
Example: Any 2 win Icons and 2 wild cards consecutive (left to right) on a win line would create a payout for 4 of the "non wild" icons that created the win, plus a x2 wild bonus.
