Free Spins in Mandarin Fortune

You earn your reward for the Scatters regardless of their position on the reels. Symbols of the playing cards (A, K, Q, J and 10) will not land on the reels during the free spins.
In the round of free spins the Wild will earn you the following multipliers:
- One Wild - x2 or x3
- Two Wilds - x4 or x9
- Three Wilds - x8 or x27
The free spins can be relaunched if 3 or more Scatters land during the round.
