The Wild Symbol is the Wizard. It is a wild multiplier symbol. Thus, the Wizard wild symbol not only acts as a substitute for all other symbols (except for the Scatter symbol) in order to you help you form winning combinations, but it also can multiply the payout! The Wizard wild symbol doubles (multiplier x2) the payout of any winning combination it completes, as long as it acts as a substitute symbol. You are paid varying prize amounts (refer to the Payout table) when you manage to form a winning combination with multiple Wizard wild symbols on an enabled pay line. Take note that the Wizard wild symbol winning combination payouts are not doubled.
The Scatter Symbol is the Crystal Ball. The scatter symbol is not required to appear in a line (on an enabled pay line) for you to win. The Crystal Ball scatter symbol can be found scattered anywhere on the 5 reels, and you are able to form winning combinations as long as there are 3 or more Crystal Ball scatter symbols that appear. Your winnings are calculated by multiplying the Crystal Ball scatter symbol combination payout (refer to the Payout table) by the total number of coins you’ve bet.
Please take note that if you get a scatter win and a regular win, then you are paid out for both of these wins, because the Crystal Ball scatter symbol is not required to come out on an enabled pay line for you to win. Scatter awards are independent from pay line awards, and thus they are added to the pay line win.
There is no Gamble Feature in this game.
