If they produce a winning combination too, the respective amount is credited to your account. During the free spins this functions switches to a special mode.
Wild Shot Function
The function named Wild Shot randomly launches at any moment of the game. The point is that two reels become "Wild" simultaneously. It applies only to reels 2, 3 and 4. The function is triggered only if the Wild symbols that appear complete the winning combinations.
At least 3 Scatter symbols showing up during one spin, trigger free spins. The number of free spins is determined by the number of Scatter symbols that landed:
- 3 - 15 free spins
- 4 - 20 free spins
- 5 - 25 free spins
During the free spins the Rolling Reels option gains additional features. After all winning combinations are formed, each multiplier increases by one within one spin. This additional multiplier can reach as high as х100. A new combination of the Scatter symbols during free spins does not affect their number.
