Change the bet per line between 0.50 and 100 using the +/- buttons. The concepts of the bet per line and the total bet in the King of the Pride slot are the same. It means that the number of credits displayed in the Bet section will be taken off of your account when you click Start.

Combinations of identical symbols grant payouts. These combos must be arranged on the adjacent reels along a payline. Combinations pay from left to right starting with the first reel.

The paytable shows all the payouts. Click the Paytable button to open it. You will see prizes in credits instead of multipliers. By opening the Paytable and changing the bet, you can see how payouts get higher or lower.

Click the Start button to launch a reel spin. Then the reels spin once. When the reels stop, if you have any winning combos they will be highlighted. You can't start a new spin before you choose whether to collect the win or take part in the gambling round.

The second option to spin the reels is the auto-play. Click the Autoplay to launch the auto mode. You can stop it if:

  • You click Stop
  • You have no credits left

King of the Pride symbols and multipliers

While the reels spin, you will land various symbols. Some of them pay winnings and others trigger bonuses or complete winning combinations. All these are listed in the Paytable which can be opened with the corresponding button.

The lion picture is the Wild symbol that lands on reels two, three and four and helps in forming combinations. The main feature of Wild is to replace the missing symbol of a combo. For example, you have zebras on reels one, three and four. It is not a winning combo according to the rules, even if they are along the same payline. However, if the lion lands on the second reel along the same payline, you will be paid for 4 zebras. The Wild, however, doesn't substitute for or interact with Scatter.

The Free Spins picture is the Scatter. It appears only on the second, third and fourth reels. Land three Scatters to trigger the Free Spins bonus round.

Regular symbols are playing cards and wild animals. They differ in payouts. The minimal number of symbols in a combination is three. The exceptions are elephants and tigers, which form combos starting with 2 symbols.

Playing with the maximum bet, you will get the following payouts for 5, 4, 3, or 2 symbols:

  • Tiger — 2,000, 400, 80 or 20 credits
  • Elephant — 1,000, 300, 80 or 8
  • Zebra — 1,000, 300 or 80
  • Giraffe — 800, 200 or 40
  • Ace and King — 800, 160 or 40
  • Queen and Jack — 400, 60 or 20
  • 10 and 9 — 300, 40 or 20

Regardless of the bet per line, you will need a combo of at least 4 symbols to cover the cost. If you only have one winning combo of 4 of the following symbols, giraffe, zebra, elephant, tiger, Ace and King you will cover the cost of the bet. However, other symbols will cover the bet only if you have several combinations.

Free Spins Bonus

Free spins are the reel spins for which you don't pay credits. Land Scatters on reels two three and four in a horizontal order to get the Free Spins Bonus. Free Spins Bonus grants 7 free spins and a payout which depends on the bet per line. You get 400 credits with the highest bet of 100.
