  • Your coin values will not necessarily decrease or increase in a linear fashion

  • 720 Ways shows how many ways to win are currently active
  • Betting is fixed at a maximum of 720 ways, which costs 50 coins
  • Once you’re comfortable with your bet, click Spin to get the reels turning


How to Take Advantage of the Auto Spin Feature


  • Auto Spin automates gameplay for a set number of games at the full 720 ways and your current coin value
  • Once you have selected your desired coin value, click AUTO SPIN and then choose how many consecutive games you would like to play

  • Auto Spin can only be used in certain approved jurisdictions


Understanding the MultiWay Xtra™ Feature


This special feature gives you a full 720 ways to win bonuses on each and every spin. Here’s how it works:

  • Whenever matching symbols appear in three or more adjacent columns (starting either on the leftmost or rightmost reel), MultiWay Xtra™ awards are paid
  • More than one matching symbol on the same column will multiply the award
  • The Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except for the Scatter and Bonus symbols
  • Only the highest paying MultiWay Xtra™ award for each symbol is paid per spin.

Example of a MultiWay Xtra™ payout: The following table will show how the MultiWay Xtra™ payout process functions within Fire Opals™. Here, we see that there is at least one Orchid symbol in each of the first four columns, meaning the player has won the 4 Orchid MultiWay Xtra™ award. This pays out 30 coins per way.

To figure out how much has been won, simply count the number of Orchid symbols in each column. In this example, the second column has 2 Wild symbols in it, and the third column has 3 Wild symbols in it. In both cases, these Wild symbols take the place of Orchid symbols. Next, multiply those symbol counts in order to determine the number of winning ways. In this example, that would be 1 x 2 x 3 x 1 = 6 winning ways. Finally, multiply the number of winning ways times the payout for the 4 Orchid MultiWay Xtra™ award. In this example, that would be 6 x 30 = 180 coins won. The actual amount won in currency would be based on the coin value.

Payout example: 1 x 2 x 3 x 1 Orchid → 6 winning ways:

Column 1

Column 2

Column 3

Column 4

Column 5



























1 Orchid

2 Orchid

3 Orchid

1 Orchid



How the Free Spins Bonus Works


Free spins = free chances to win! Here’s how it breaks down:

  • Players will earn 10 free spins whenever a Bonus symbol appears on five consecutive reels
  • These free spins use a different set of reels that feature more stacks of wilds, giving the chance to win much richer rewards than one could in the base game
  • While these free spins are being playd, getting five consecutive bonus reels will trigger another round of free spins
  • Players can keep winning additional free spins, up to a maximum of 260 consecutive free spins in a single bonus round
  • The coin value wagered in the Bonus is the same as the value used during the spin that triggered the bonus
