Playing the pokie requires you to place a bet first. The options range between $0.20 and $100 for a spin. Throw a golden coin to the bartender, and you can go wild in the saloon.
While the gloomy atmosphere of this gritty action may not suit many, the features will surely draw you in. Let’s start with the reels first. There’s an extra one on top and another one at the bottom. Landing a symbol on the reels that will match characters or Wilds on the top reel will turn them both to Wild.
On the other hand, the bottom reel hides locked surprises. On the right, it’s always a Multiplier Wild. Behind the other positions, there’s either a character or a special symbol. The Multiplier Wild is only active in the Bonus Round and will rise by +1 for every cascade.
This isn’t the first time the developer has used its xNudge, xWays, and Infections xWays in its pokie. A fully stacked symbol on the bottom reel will always nudge to fill it, raising the Multiplier by a count of 1. This is the xNudge mechanic. If it nudges over a Wild, an extra +1 is added to the Multiplier.
xWays symbols can appear on any reel except the top one. Conversely, Infectious xWays symbols can only appear on the bottom reel positions. xWays symbols transform into regulars and reveal a few matching symbols on the grid. The Infectious symbols only reveal 2, but they can infect the same symbols on the reel, expanding them to the same size.
Reel split is a feature that doubles all symbols above it and may only appear on the bottom reel positions. The same reel positions can hold a Transform’em symbol, which does what it says. Finally, there’s a Special Grit symbol showing a girl that pays the highest amounts of money, but only if it lands in 3 or 4 instances.
