The grid fills up with new symbols. The avalanche repeats until no more wins.

Big symbols can merge into bigger symbols if matching symbols land adjacent to form bigger squares or rectangles. A big symbol can never break up into smaller symbols.

Landing one or more matching sticky symbols or Wild symbols during a redrop will award one additional redrop, potential winnings are paid out when no additional matching symbols or Wild symbols appear during a redrop.

Landing a new sticky redrop symbol will upgrade the selected paying symbols to the nearest higher paying symbol. This repeats for every new sticky redrop symbol until highest paying symbol is selected in the sticky redrops feature.

The sticky redrop symbol can appear in sizes 1x1, 2x2 and 3x3.
