How to play Jolly Beluga Whales
The first action the player needs to make in the Jolly Beluga Whales slot, happens before the game screen with reels comes up. Once the animated screensaver starts, you have to select the value of your in-game coins in correlation to in-game credits. The number of coins that you are always given is 300. However, the cost of a credit, measured in these coins can be different. In this particular slot the developers have proposed only one option of 0.01 coins. So, you initially have 30,000 credits.
After this the game screen with the control panel and the reels opens up. It will not look that usual to you even if you were a slot connoisseur. It contains only four sections that display your current data. They are as follows:
- Total Bet Click on it to select the Max Bet option, which will show when the name changes
- Click on the Credit button to switch to the Cash mode. The Cash mode implies in-game coins, the Credit mode implies in-game credits,
- The conventional Win section. The winnings are displayed in the same units as in the section next to it,
- Another section with no name contains good luck wishes and prompts for further actions and in the case of a successful spin, it explains which payline earned you the winnings and with what kind of a combo
The latter section displays the following:
- The number of paylines selected
- Your bet per line
- Autospin indicator
- Paytable switch
To place your bet, click on the orange button to the left of the Game Menu. Once you make a click, you will be transferred to an additional window where you will have to select the number of lines and set your bet per line. Instead of clicking the +/- buttons, you will be given an option of several ranges to choose from:
- Lines — 1—5, 5—10, 10—15, 15—20 or 20
- Bet — 1—2, 2—4, 4—10, 10—25 or 25
Click on the Max Bet button to raise your bet to the maximum with one single click.
These are the things you can do on the screen:
- Activate the autospins (a total of two options available: 5 and 100 spins) by clicking on the Autoplay button
- Click on the Music button to adjust the volume or disable the sound effects altogether
- Click on the Help Pays button to view the paytable
If you go back to the main screen, you will find two more small buttons. The speaker icon lets you disable the sound effects and the frame (or the cross) icon will let you maximise or minimise the window.
Please remember that the entire game in this slot is totally free and all slot versions on our website are only for purposes of familiarisation with the features of the gameplay.
Symbols and multipliers in Jolly Beluga Whales
The slot features both regular and special symbols.
The Wild symbol
The Wild symbols are pictures of whales. Three pictures look a little different from one another and each one comes up only on its own reel — the second, third or fourth. Each of these pictures will help you complete the winning combinations by replacing a regular icon.
The slot uses nine symbols. Five of the highest-paying ones depict the slot's theme:
- A polar bear pays 40, 500 or 10,000 credits for 3, 4 or 5 symbols respectively
- An Arctic wolf and a snowy owl — 20, 80 and 200
- A walrus and an Atlantic puffin — 15, 40 and 100
These are followed by familiar card symbols. There are four of them — Ace, King, Queen and Jack. They all pay the same — 10, 20 and 100.
All winnings in the paytable are shown in credits. The indicated payouts are shown based on the minimum bet per line of one credit. Payouts are much higher with the maximum bet. For example, five polar bears pay 250,000 credits and five card symbols pay 2,500.
Winning combinations are calculated traditionally — left to right starting from the leftmost reel.
The slot features the gambling round option. Each time you win, the Game Menu button will turn into the Double Up button and the Start button will become the Take Win. The latter one lets you claim your winnings and the former one lets you take the risk and try to multiply them.
Once you enter the risk game, you will see a deck of cards placed face down. Here you will be asked to guess the suit or the colour of the card dealt from the deck. This is done by clicking on the appropriate icon. If you guess the colour correctly, you will double your winnings, if you guess the suit, your winnings will be quadrupled. If your guess is wrong, all of the credits earned in the Double Up round and in the most recent spin will be forfeited. Click on Half Gamble button to play with half of your winnings. Click on the Start button to exit the round and claim your winnings.
The game will go on until the first failure or until your winnings reach 50 total bets. This is when you automatically go back to the main game and the winnings are added to your account.
If Wild symbols come up on the second and third reels simultaneously, you get 15 free spins.
You can win more free spins in the free spins mode but it can only happen one time.
You can use your keyboard instead of the mouse to run the slot. The rules describe in detail which keys to press in each mode.
Definite advantages that Jolly Beluga Whales has to offer are large payouts and a small number of symbols involved. There are a total of nine symbols, meaning that the winning combinations can be formed more frequently. You can enjoy the pictures of Arctic wildlife and nature.
