This gambling machine uses a 5×3 setup – though this is not immediately obvious. The reason is that the symbols come in different sized blocks. Some are stacked, covering entire reels. Others are two across, and only one symbol tall. The best cover multiple reels.
When your wins are calculated, an all-ways system is used. This means matching symbols on reels from the left always pay. With big symbols in play, your chances of triggering all (or many) of the 243 winning combinations shoots up.
If you get a giant symbol covering the middle three reels, the excitement rises. The reels will shake, with a deep rumbling sound effect. The first and fifth reel take longer to spin – giving you some anticipation while you wait to see if more of the same lady will appear.
This pokie machine can be enjoyed on a desktop – though, the setup makes it perfect for mobile devices. The spin button is a big circle on the bottom right (ideal for your thumb!). The controls and options are all within separate menus. This leaves a lot of the screen space for the reels.
It only takes a few spins to get used to the oversized symbols. When you win, these are broken into their individual pieces to show you the winning combinations.
Wilds are in play (these can also be oversized), as well as gem symbols in striking colours for the fillers. The renegades have the biggest prizes – worth up to 200 coins for five of a kind. When you consider that it is possible to trigger 243 winning combinations at once with the all-ways system, you’ll quickly see that big wins are possible.
