Bonus Bet Option/Rogues Feature
To activate the Bonus Bet which will unlock the Rogue Feature you will need to click on this button, which will cost you an additional 10 coins per spin and if 3 or more Bonus symbols land, the Rogues Feature will be launched. If 3 or more Scatter (The Flash insignia with the word Bonus) symbols land, this feature will be launched. You can choose one of the features:
- Captain Cold - 12 Free Games where when the Flash appears you can win up to 10x your bet and Captain Cold may freeze that reel into an Expanding Wild for a single re-spin
- Gorilla Grodd - 12 Free Games where when the Flash appears you can win up to 10x your bet and Grodd will teleport a Wild symbol onto a random position on the reel window with every Free Game
- Mirror Master - 12 Free Games where when the Flash appears you can win up to 10x your bet and after any free game, the Mirror Master may take you back in time and replay the last 4 Free Games
During the feature the message bar in the control panel at the bottom of the screen will show the amount of Free Games that have been played and the Total Win from the feature. The Rogues Feature cannot be retriggered and the reels will spin automatically.
Symbols and Multipliers
To create a winning combination, identical symbols need to land along an active payline, on neighbouring reels, from left to right starting with the first reel. Only the highest win per line will be paid, if winning combos land on multiple paylines the winnings will be added. The themed symbols are Captain Cold, Mirror Master, Gorilla Grodd and they have multipliers for combos of 2, 3, 4 or 5 symbols. A clock, the Flash´s legs, the Flash Insignia button and playing card symbols A, K, Q and J award multipliers for combos of 3, 4 and 5 symbols. All symbols and multipliers can be found in the paytable and are applied to the bet.
The Wild symbol is the Flash with the word Wild, it has its own multipliers for combinations of 2 to 5 symbols, it can be used as a substitute for all other symbols, except the scatter and bonus and will multiply wins when substituting up to 3 times, except during the bonus bet round when they are multiplied up to x5. The Flash´s insignia with the word Scatter is the Scatter symbol, it can land anywhere on the screen and awards its own multipliers for combinations of 2 to 5 symbols. The Flash´s insignia with the word bonus will launch the Rogues feature if 3 or more land. The Speedster Feature is only active during the normal game and regular symbols can change into Wild Flash symbols.
After every successful spin above the spin button, a heart and club will appear, if you click on them you will open the risk game. On a new screen you will see the back of a playing card with the The Flash™ on it. To the left are two buttons for red and black and the amount that you will win if your guess is correct and to the right of it are buttons for the four card suits and the amount that you will win if your guess is correct.
