Bonus Games and Special Symbols
Wild and Scatter symbol :
• Wild/Scatter The gold griffin is the only image that has special options. It acts as both the wild and the scatter. Playing the role of wild symbol, he substitutes any simple picture, thereby helping to create new combinations. If in the same spin on the field there are at least three gold griffins, freespool round starts. Scatter symbols can appear in any position.
The slot features a free spins mode:
• Free Spins. Before the bonus freespins are activated, the player will receive an extra payout for the scatters rolled in the previous spin. It can be x2, x20 or x200 for 3, 4 and 5 scatters respectively. There are 10 free spins available in the game.
If the wild symbol appears on the screen during the freespins, it does not disappear from the field in the next spin. Instead, it is frozen on the field, shifting one position with each new spin. In this way, as it moves around the screen, the wild creates new combinations until it disappears from view. In addition, each special symbol that appears on the screen during the bonus round brings the player +1 freespin.
Another feature of the wild symbols in freespins mode is the extra payout multipliers that count towards the winnings for combos involving the wild. Each time a ‘wandering’ wild symbol forms a combination during freespins, the extra multiplier is increased by 1.
In free spins mode, up to three wilds can be present on the screen at the same time. Accordingly, this multiplies the chances of winning big winnings.
