## Game Rules

#### Playing

• Select your bet size on the Bet Level interface
• Press the Autoplay icon to open the autoplay settings (if applicable)
• The game panel will display your current bet size, current win, and current balance

#### HOW TO CALCULATE WINS WITH "WIN ALL WAYS"

• To calculate a single symbol win, count the number of subsequent reels that contain the symbol, starting from the left or the right
• If the number of subsequent reels containing the symbol is three or greater counting from the left, find the corresponding win amount in the paytable, otherwise, if the symbol was not present on three subsequent reels counting from the left, count from the right
• If the number of subsequent reels containing the symbol is three or greater counting from the right, find the corresponding win amount in the paytable
• If any of the reels contain more than 1 instance of the winning symbols, the win will be multiplied. Multiply the number of symbols on each of the reels to get the final multiplier. For example, if the first reel contains 2 symbols, the second reel 3 symbols, and the third reel 2 symbols, the paytable value is multiplied in the following manner: 2*3*2=12 (total multiplier)
• 5 of a kind wins only pay from one side
• During gameplay, different way wins are added together

• The rewards are - additional Free Spins, Extra Starting Multiplier, Multiplier Growth, 2x2 Symbols, 3x3 Symbols, Random Wild and High Symbol Value Multiplier.
• Multiplier: the multiplier applies to every win
• Multiplier Growth: If the player won ‘+x2 Multiplier Growth’ during the Rewards Reels Game, the multiplier grows x2 per every spin
• 2x2 Symbol: If won during the Rewards Reels game, the 2x2 sized symbols can drop occupying 4 symbol spaces as one BIG symbol

• High Symbol Value Multiplier: If won during the Rewards Reels game, the Mammoth Symbol and/or Fox Symbol will have a X1, X2 or X3 printed on them. The Multiplier value is additive (that is, if x2 and x3 lands on Rewards Reels, the final value will be x5 during Bonus Game). During the Bonus Game, the value of those symbols is multiplied accordingly for the entire duration of Free Spins
• Free Spins: If won during the Rewards Reels game, you can increase starting spins by +1, +2 or +3 spins

#### Free Spins

#### Playing Free Spins

• Each win increases the multiplier by 1.
• Fully unlocking the game in Free Spins gives an immediate +X2 Multiplier Growth. Additional 2 free spins are granted after full reel unlock.
• The progress of unlocking the reels in Free Spins does not fully reset between the spins
• The progress is only reset down to the shortest reel
• For example, if the reels are 7-7-8-9-7 at the end of the spin, the next spin starts with 7-7-7-7-7 because the shortest reel was 7 symbols tall.
• Free Spins are played with the same bet as the activating spin.
