There are two special symbols that will appear on the board in the Wildcat Canyon video slot. The wild is of course the wildcat. It will appear on reels 2 and 4 only and will substitute for all other symbols except for scatter. Scatter is a large paw print and all scatter wins are multiplied by your line bet, up to a maximum of 200x for 5 scatters. Naturally, there are also free spins to be won with the aid of scatter. You’ll be awarded either 5, 10 or 15 spins depending on the colour of the scatter symbol which triggers the spins, red, blue or purple. There are also multipliers applied to all free spin wins, rated as 3x, 5x and 10x respectively. These are in reverse to the number of spins granted, so the full 15 free spins for example will give you a 3x multiplier.
In terms of the regular playing symbols, you’ll earn 250 coins at best with the max bet set for 5 symbols on a payline. For the remaining three symbols, the horse, cactus and bird of prey, you’ll win 500, 1,000 and 5,000 respectively for 5 on a line. During free spins, the wild symbol can appear and this time it will be locked, giving you a chance to boost your wins. It’s also possible to retrigger respins again with the aid of scatter. Once more, you’ll be given the chance to select which of the free spins you’d like to claim: it really comes down to what you value more, a high multiplier or a high number of spins, because you can’t have both.
