Coin Size:

First, you select the coin size - this will control the amount you wager on each line. The coin size is important because the amount you win is based on a multiple of your coin size - the larger the coin size, the more you could win. Simply click on the + or - buttons beside the coin size to choose.

Win Lines:

You can select the number of lines you want to bet on. Lines are coloured and appear across the reels. You can bet on up to 20 win lines. The more win lines you pick the more expensive each spin but the better your chances of winning on any individual spin.

There are three ways to pick how many lines you want to play:

  • Click BET ONE to add another line. If you click past the maximum it will return to one.
  • Click on the coloured numbers at the side of the reels.
  • Click BET MAX to select the max lines and automatically start the reels spinning.

Betting on a lot of lines increases your chance of winning on any individual spin, though it won't affect the payout which is based on the coin size you have chosen.

Scatter Symbols:

Scatter Symbols which appear as STEAL icons on any reel and will pay you a win multiplier, according to the following table:

Symbols Win Multiplier
3 x5
4 x25
5 x100

Wild Symbols:

The Golden Balls symbol is Wild and can substitute for any other symbol to create winning lines, except for the Scatter and Bonus Symbols.

Golden Bank Bonus:

3 Golden Bank symbols on any win line starts the Golden Bank Bonus game. The game can last up to six rounds. In each round you're presented with 3 Golden Balls. Simply choose a ball and you'll win whatever's inside before you move on to the next round. The game ends when you reveal a Killer Ball. All wins are multiplied by the number of win lines the 3 symbols appeared on.

Golden Balls Bonus:

9 Golden Balls are presented on 9 podiums. You can choose to open the balls in any order and you'll win anything you reveal - but be careful, if you reveal a Killer all the remaining balls will open and pay out at a lower rate. All wins are multiplied by the number of win lines the 3 symbols appeared on.

Formal Game Rules:

Pressing SPIN will cause the bet to be placed for the coin size and number of lines selected and the game will be commenced. Pressing BET MAX will cause the bet to be placed for the selected coin size and the maximum number of lines and the game will be commenced.

Note: If you click BET MAX but have insufficient funds in your account for all lines at the selected coin size, the game will bet the maximum number lines for the funds in your account.

Most winning sequences are scored left to right and must start on the first left hand reel, except for:

  • Three or more Scatter symbols anywhere in the game window award a win.
  • Three of the same type of Bonus symbols anywhere on a win line will award a bonus game.

The figures in the pay table MULTIPLY the COIN SIZE you have chosen and are NOT the PAYOUT TOTALS. Scatter wins multiply the figure shown (5, 25 or 100) by the coin size and by the number of win lines bet on.
