TIPS AND TRICKS
All pays are left to right including scatters.

Volcano appears on reels 2 and 4 only and substitutes for all symbols.

Feature: Spin up 3, 4 or 5 Coins for 10, 15 or 20 free games respectively. The feature can also be won during the free games.

During the free games the Volcano substitutes are x3 and/or x5 respectively. If both symbols substitute in a win it is x15.

Pressing Gamble during a double up feature alternates between full and half gamble. Any odd number gambled is rounded down (e.g. a gamble of 5 credits will become 2 if lost or 8 if won).
