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 display to toggle through the different coin sizes.

Win Lines:

You can now select the number of lines you want to bet on. Lines are coloured and appear across the reels. You can bet on up to 9 win lines with Spinning for Gold. The more win lines you pick the more expensive each spin will be but the better your chances of winning on any individual spin are.

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:

The Scatter Symbol, which appears as a mischievous little dwarf, can pop up anywhere and will award Free Spins based on the following:

Symbols Free Spins
2 x2
3 x5
4 x10
5 x20

Wild Symbols:

The Wild Symbol can substitute for any symbol except scatter and bonus symbols and in Spinning for Gold it will also double any win you make with it. 5 Wild Symbols on a single win line will award the highest payout in the game - a mystical 10,000 x coin size!

Gamble Feature:

After any win you're offered the chance of cashing out or gambling. To Gamble, simply click on the Gamble button and you can guess the colour or suit of the random card that's drawn. Guess the correct colour and you'll double your win - guess the suit and you'll quadruple it! The game can continue until your win limit has been met.

Auto play:

This feature allows you to select the number of spins you want the slot to make automatically. You can use the Stop Button anytime, so you're always in control. To activate Auto play, simply spin the reels with your desired number of lines - so if you want to Bet Max make sure you Bet Max in the spin before you activate Auto play. Then, select Auto from the game controls and choose the number of spins you desire.

You can customize Auto play further by clicking on the Advanced Options tab:

  • 'If single win exceeds' will stop Auto play if you win above a certain amount on one spin
  • 'If balance goes above' will stop Auto play if your total account balance goes above a set amount
  • 'If balance goes under' will stop Auto play if your total account balance goes below a set amount
  • 'On any win' will stop Auto play every time you win

Formal Game Rules:

SPINNING FOR GOLD is a five reel, nine line slot with scatter and gamble features.

The active coin size is shown in the bottom left of the play screen and may be adjusted using the + and - buttons. You may bet on up to nine lines on each spin by using BET ONE to change the number of lines or pressing BET MAX to bet the maximum number of lines.

The game is commenced by pressing SPIN or BET MAX (or by using the AUTO PLAY facility) and this action being registered on our servers. This will cause the bet indicated on screen to be placed. Once the game has been commenced the game cannot be discontinued and the bet amount will be deducted from your account.

Each spin is completely random and independent. It is not affected by previous spins, or the start position of the reels. Each reel is independent and is not affected by any other reel.

Wins are paid in accordance with the pay table. The amounts shown in the pay table are coin multipliers not currency amounts and multiply the active coin size. Wins are scored from left to right starting on the leftmost reel. Wins are paid only on lines for which a bet has been made. Only one win, the highest win, is awarded on any single pay line. Wins on separate pay wins are added.

The "Wild" symbol is wild and may substitute for any other symbol except Scatter symbol. The win amount for any win line including a wild symbol is double the normal win for that combination.

If two or more Scatter symbols appear the Free Spins feature will be initiated and you will be awarded free spins in accordance with the pay table. Bets and Lines played during free spins are the same as for the spin that initiated the feature.

You may opt to gamble any win by pressing the GAMBLE button to activate the Gamble feature. Once you have pressed the GAMBLE button you may opt to double or quadruple your win amount by betting on the colour or suit of the draw of a playing card. If you win the gamble you may collect the win amount by pressing the COLLECT button or may continue to gamble for as long as given the gamble option.

This game is played over the Internet which is a communication medium that is known to be imperfect. Messages to or from your display device and the game servers may be lost or interrupted. If you have not commenced the game when you are disconnected, the game will not take place. If you have commenced the game when you are disconnected the game result will be recorded on the game servers and the bet will stand and the outcome will be reflected in your account status.

In the event of a disconnection during the Free Spins feature, reconnecting and re-selecting Spinning for Gold should cause the game to commence from the point at which it terminated. In the event the Free Spins feature cannot for any reason be recommenced in this way this is considered a malfunction.

In the event of a disconnection during the Gamble feature, you lose the opportunity to gamble further. Your account balance is updated between each round of the gamble and in the event a gamble was in progress at the time of disconnection the outcome will be reflected in your account status.

In the event of disconnection the records stored on the game server shall be the final authority in determining the terms of any bets you have placed and the circumstances in which they were made.

AUTO PLAY FACILITY: Once you press AUTO the spins will start in accordance with the settings you have specified. Once commenced, the spins can only be stopped by pressing the STOP button. Pressing the STOP button will prevent further automatic spins from taking place. The outcome of any spins prior to pressing the STOP button including any spin in progress at the time you press the STOP button cannot be reversed.

"Malfunction voids all pays and plays" - in other words your bet and any outcome are void in the event of a malfunction.

In the event that these Formal Game Rules contradict other information about the game these Formal Game Rules shall take precedence. These Game Rules do not take precedence over the main Service Terms and Conditions.
