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 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 and Bonus wins are independent from payline wins and are also added to the total amount paid.

Wins are shown in currency.

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 Free Spins Bonus, plus the outcome which launched the bonus. If the award cap is reached in a bonus, the bonus ends immediately, even if there are remaining free spins.

Additional Information
Expected Payback
In accordance with fair gaming practices required in most legal jurisdictions worldwide, each and every game outcome is completely independent, except in cases where one spin unlocks a feature for a subsequent spin or series of spins, per the game rules. 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. 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.RTP = 92.80%
