The reels show card symbols from the ten to the ace, the scarab, the eye of Ra and the ankh. The same symbols are represented by long vertical stacks, so all fifteen cells on the screen can be occupied by icons of the same type.
The special elements are as follows:
• Wild (the main character) forms combinations that pay the highest odds. This is the only symbol that makes a winning chain, even from two pictures. It also substitutes for other icons besides the scatter if it is in the right position.
• Wild Ark is another joker. It appears in the second, third and fourth columns. He gets stuck on the screen and triggers re-spins that take place for casino money.
• Multiplier (white pyramid) only appears on the fifth reel. It activates additional multipliers.
Let’s take a look at the features of the prize features:
• Wild Ark Respin – With each respin, this joker fills a free cell above or below in the column. The draws continue as long as the Wild Ark can expand. There can be no more than six free spins.
• Multiplier Booster – One Pyramid increases the total extra multiplier. This is applied to all payouts accrued during the round. This multiplier can be as high as x21.
