The game disconnects if you do not take any actions for a specific number of consecutive minutes (this number varies depending on jurisdiction); the session recovery feature will save the game progress so that the next time the game is loaded, you can continue where you left off.

In the event of technical difficulties resulting in a dropped connection to the game server, the game you were playing is saved automatically and will load the next time you establish a connection to the game server. You will not be able to reconnect to the game server for the first 30 seconds after the disconnection.

Note: In case of malfunction all pays and play are voided; any bet that was not yet accepted will be voided, any bet that was unsettled will be refunded.

How to Play

Note: If you do not have enough money to play a game, the bet can be set to the minimum selectable amount through a dialog window informing about this.

All winning lines pay from left to right. Winnings on different lines are all added. Only the highest winning combination on each line is paid. Winnings from free spins are added to the total win.

On the info bar(s) located under the main game screen, you can view the current BET, your BALANCE and your current WIN, in your currency, and your current CREDIT, in coins.

Special Symbols and Features

Wild

The Wild symbol can replace any other symbols, except Scatter and Mystery Symbols to form winning combinations.

Note: If no specific payouts for Wild are displayed in the pay table, a combination formed exclusively with Wild will pay just like the highest paying symbol, if that combination is the highest winning combination on a line.

Scatter

During normal spins, three or more Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels trigger the Free Spins round.

Note: Free Spins cannot be retriggered. During Free Spins you cannot change the bet value.

Fairy Free Spins

Colossal Symbols appear anywhere on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5, only during Free Spins and Dragon Colossal Spins.

These are high paying symbols that take over 3x3 or 4x4 positions on the reels.

Note: Wilds cannot become Colossal Symbols.

Nutcracker Bonus

During normal spins, if a Wild appears on the whole third reel (stacked wild), it triggers the Nutcracker Bonus round where you have to pick one of the gifts in order to randomly win 5, 7, 8 or 10 Nutcracker Free Spins.

Reel three is Wild and remains in place during Nutcracker Free Spins.

In addition, during each Nutcracker Free Spin, every time you get a winning combination, the symbols that form that combination remain in place while the reels respin (the respin is also free) - the winning combination is not yet paid. Also, any other winning symbols from the next respins are held.

Note: A respin does not decrease the remaining number of Nutcracker Free Spins.

If after a respin you get more winning combinations, the previous winning symbols as well as the new winning symbols remain in place while the reels respin again - the winning combinations are not yet paid.

This continues until the final win (formed by all the held symbols) cannot be improved any further (no other symbols that can be held appear) at which point the final win is paid and the Nutcracker Free Spins resume.

Note: Fairy Free Spins cannot be triggered during Nutcracker Free Spins.
