The game is played on a 5x5 grid.

Rubies have the highest payout of 50x your stake when you land 5 on a winning line. The wild symbol is the star which replaces all icons in the game except the key scatter.

  • Spin Mechanic- When winningcombinations are formed, the symbols are destroyed and new symbols take their place. Symbols at the higher positions move to take the lower numbered spaces. The spiral pattern continues until the symbols make a full rotation.
  • Wild symbol- Every winning combinationforms a star. Wilds can replace normalsymbolsto help form wins. A win that includes a wild won’tcreate another star, but the stars that made up the winblow up and destroy all the symbols directly next to them. Once this effect is complete, new icons show up on the screen and fill the grid.
