- A picture with a house — 5, 50, 250 and 1,000 for 2, 3, 4 and 5 images in a combination, respectively
- A male bear — 20, 100 and 250 for 3, 4 and 5 symbols in a combination

The Goldilocks and the Wild Bears slot has two more types of Wild symbols:
- Multiplier Wild
- Wild bears (they only play in the round of free spins)
Multiplier Wild — a red bowl with porridge and a wooden spoon. Each of these symbols, coming up in the game window, raises the multiplier for the latest spin:
- One Multiplier Wild symbol — raises the multiplier to two
- Two Multiplier Wild symbols — raise the multiplier to three
- Three Multiplier Wild symbols — raise the multiplier to four
The multiplier is multiplied by your total win for the spin, in which the symbols of Multiplier Wild landed, except for those rewards that have been earned with the help of the Free Spin Scatter symbol. In addition, this picture performs the same functions as Regular Wild.
Free Spin Scatter symbols activate a round of free spins. Goldilocks Progress Scatter symbols launch the Bears Turn Wild bonus feature.
Round of free spins in the Goldilocks and the Wild Bears slot
When three Free Spin Scatters come up in the game window of the Goldilocks and the Wild Bears slot, a round of free spins is activated. These pictures land only on the reels two, three and four. The round consists of ten free spins.
The bet for free spins is the same as it was in the spin that activated them. You cannot change it until the round is over. Extra free spins can be won with the Bears Turn Wild bonus feature.

Bears Turn Wild bonus feature
Three sectors are below the reels during the round of free spins. The first sector has three boxes, the second and third — five. Pictures of the girl making faces that come up on the reels alternately fill the boxes:
- When three boxes of the first sector are filled, the symbol with a bear will turn into the Wild until the round of free spins is completed. After that, the boxes of the second sector will be filled
- Five filled boxes of the second sector will turn the picture with a bear into the Wild symbol. Also they will earn you two extra free spins. The Wild symbol with a bear will also play until the end of free spins
- When five boxes of the third sector are filled, all symbols with a bear cub are converted into Wild symbols. They also will award you with two extra free spins. The Wild symbol with a bear will play until the end of free spins
All new Wild symbols can replace any other picture in the game window. The Bears Turn Wild bonus feature only works during the round of free spins.
