How you win

Free Spins Feature – Get 3 or more Bonus or Magnetic Bonus symbols to trigger up to 20 free spins in this additional bonus round. During the free spins round, the positions of the Bonus and Magnetic Bonus symbols are marked. Each time another Bonus symbol lands in a marked position on the reels, it is upgraded – it can be upgraded a maximum of 3 times.

Positions marked by a magnetic bonus become magnetic positions. They attract any bonus symbol that lands on the reels to them. If a position is not magnetic, but a magnetic bonus symbol lands on it, it will be converted into a magnetic position. At the end of the free spins round, all marked positions display a random multiplier depending on their level, as follows:

  • Level 1 – 1x, 2x, 3x
  • Level 2 – 5x, 6x, 8x
  • Level 3 – 10x, 12x, 15x, or 20x

The multipliers are added together and the total win of the free spins round is multiplied by the last multiplier. If you land at least 3 Bonus or Magnetic Bonus symbols on the reels during the free spins round, you retrigger the feature with up to 20 free spins.

Special reels are played during this feature.

The theoretical RTP of this latest online slot is 96.50% and the maximum win is set at 3000x, which you can achieve in the free spins round. When the game reaches 3000x Max Win, the round will end immediately, the win will be paid and all remaining free spins will be forfeited.
