Bonus Games and Free Spins

Lost City Adventure Bonus
This can be triggered randomly in the main game and will open a new screen with 6 crates on it. You need to pick boxes to collect cash rewards and unlock game features. When you find the crate that says Collect the bonus round will end and you will see the Book of the Dead open and a new game feature will be revealed and won. Six of the game features will be visible beside the reels:
- Scorpion Scatter - pays like a Scatter with a special paytable
- Expanding Mummy - the Wild Mummy symbol becomes an expanding Wild
- Scarab Attack - when the Wild Mummy symbol lands anywhere on the central reel, two additional Wilds will land randomly one on the 2nd reel and one on the 3rd reel
- Collapsing Reels - every time a Mummy logo symbol appears it will explode. If a winning combination lands, all the symbols that were use to create it will explode and the symbols above them will fall down and replace them. If they create a new combination, you will receive the payout and the symbols involved in the combo will explode and this continues until no more winning combinations appear on the reels
- Mummy Power - if 1, 2 or 3 Wild Mummy symbols are used to create a winning combination, the win will be multiplied by 3, 6 or 9 respectively
- Mummy Respin - if the Wild Mummy symbol appears, it will freeze the reel it appeared on for free respins until a winning combination is created
Once collected, during the main game you can active any 1 of these 6 features. If you win the Free Game with the Super Spin Feature the Zeppelin Free Games symbol will permanently be added to the reels and can trigger the Free Games Feature. If you win the Mummy Hunt bonus feature the Mummy Hunt symbols will permanently be added to the reels and can trigger the Mummy Hunt bonus. All features won will remain available even if you exit and return to the game.
Free Games with Super Spin Feature
If the Zeppelin Free Games symbol lands anywhere on the first, third or fifth reels they will award a round of 5 free games with 1 Super Spin. If any Wild Mummy symbols appear on the reels up to 9 will be collected at the side of the reels. Before the super spin, the collected Wilds will be distributed randomly on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels.
Mummy Hunt Bonus
If a Mummy Hunt Bonus symbol lands anywhere on reels 1 to 5 they will trigger the Mummy Hunt Bonus. You have to hunt down the Mummies to win cash in the depths of the Pyramid. During the hunt you will arrive at the opening of two tunnels and you must decide whether to take the one on the left or the one on the right. One will lead you to a Mummy and the other to a dead end. If you find the Mummy you must kill it and you will be rewarded with cash and can then continue down the tunnel until you find another two tunnels and have to choose again which one you want to go down. If you find a dead end you will be surrounded by Mummies and the round will end. You can find a maximum of 10 Mummies in every game.
