Symbols and Multipliers
When symbols line up from left to right starting with the leftmost reel, along an active payline they create winning combinations.

Only the highest win per line will be paid.
There is one special symbol in this game which is the Wild and is the image of a Star. It has no combinations of its own but it can substitute for all symbols to help create or extend winning combinations. When it lands, it will also turn all adjacent symbols into Wilds.
Once you have landed a winning combination you can choose to gamble or collect your winnings. If you want to gamble, you need to click on the gamble button in the control panel and a new screen will appear with a face down card in the centre. To the right of the card you will see 3 buttons, Black, a Spade and a Club and to the left, Red, a Heart and a Diamond. You will also see, the Gamble amount, the winning amount if you guess the colour correctly, the winning amount if you guess the suit correctly and the previous 7 cards.
If you guess correctly your win total will increase and you can choose to gamble again with all or half of your winnings or collect them. A wrong guess means your winnings will be lost and you will return to the main game. At the bottom of the screen you can see your balance, a message box and also the amount of your wins.
