• Count all the Falcon and Wild symbols in each column.
• Calculate the total number of winning ways (1 x 2 x 2 x 1 = 4)
• Calculate the award amount in currency by multiplying the award (40 coins) by the coin value. For instance, if the coin value is £0.02 then the award is £0.80 (40 x £0.02).
• The total pay is the award value (x) the total number of winning ways (£0.80 x 4 = £3.20).
The win message displayed will be: MULTIWAY XTRA™ WIN PAYS: £0.80 X 4.
