Rise Bonus Feature

  • If the Rise Bonus symbol lands on the first reel, the Rise Bonus feature is triggered.

  • The transformation occurs first, then the bet line wins are calculated.
  • The Scatter symbol will not be transformed.

Dual Feature

  • The reels only contain these two symbols, the rest of the reels are blank spaces.

  • If a symbol lands in the other play area, and the corresponding position is already filled in the correct play area, the symbol cannot transfer.
  • The game re-spins until there are no more new symbols in either area.

  • Only the Rise play area is active during the Rise Free Spins.

  • During the Rise Free Spins the number of Wild symbols that land on each spin are collected in a Wild meter on the screen. Each Wild symbol landing on reels will add to the meter by 1.
  • On the last spin, after the reels stop spinning (but before any wins are evaluated) all collected Wild symbols are randomly placed on the play area and, once this has finished, the win will be evaluated.
  • The maximum number of Wild symbols that can be collected during the Rise Free Spins is 15.
  • Wild symbols landing on the screen during the last Rise Free Spin will not be added to the Wild collected meter.
  • After the last spin the overlay Wild symbols from the collected meter may be placed on top of the existing Wild symbols that landed on the reels during the last spin.

Dawn Free Spins

  • 3 or more Scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels in the Dawn play area activate the Dawn Free Spins.
  • Only the Dawn play area is active during the Dawn Free Spins.
  • 15 Free Spins are awarded.
  • In the Dawn Free Spins, there are 3 different collect symbols that activate a corresponding meter: Multiplier, Extra Wild and Extra Free Spins.
  • When a collect symbol lands, it fills the corresponding meter by 1. When the meter is full, it activates a feature with each meter requiring 3 symbols to become full.
  • The Extra Free Spins meter awards 3 extra Free Spins every time it is filled.
  • The player starts the Dawn Free Spins with multiplier 1. Each time the Multiplier meter is filled the multiplier is increased by 1, until the x5 multiplier is reached. The current multiplier/Wild symbol will be highlighted on the game screen.
  • The Extra Wild meter turns one of the human symbols into an Extra Wild symbol every time it is filled for the remainder of the Free Spins.
