Grand Melee Features
The Sticky Respin feature can activate randomly during any spin and choose one random paying symbol in the area above the reels. If 5 or more of the chosen symbols appear anywhere in the game area, they will stick in place and remain locked during a Respin. During the Respin, any matching symbols of the chosen sticky symbol that appear will also lock in place. The remaining symbols will continue to Respin until no new instances of the chosen sticky symbol appear. The cumulative win from these actions will be paid out when the feature ends. Any active features will reset as the Sticky Respin feature ends.
Symbol Upgrade & Symbol Expansion
The Symbol Upgrade symbol can turn all existing instances of the currently sticky symbols into even more valuable sticky symbols. When the Symbol Expansion symbol appears in view, it can transform into the current sticky symbol and expand vertically to cover the entire reel with sticky symbols.
Game Area Expansion
When the Game Area Expansion symbol lands on the reels, it can turn into the ongoing sticky symbol while simultaneously adding a new row at the lower part of the game area. This new row will contain an assortment of random symbols, including both feature and Bonus symbols. Note that the game area can expand to a maximum of 7 rows.
The Bonus Game triggers when 5 or more Bonus symbols land in view on the reels. Furthermore, it can be also triggered during the Sticky Respin feature if the Bonus symbol appears in the area above the reels. Any Bonus symbols that appear in the game area will be locked in their position and also highlighted in the Bonus Meter below the reels. Respins will continue until no more Bonus symbols appear.
The Bonus Game will trigger or retrigger when the Bonus Meter below the reels reaches its maximum capacity and the Sticky Respin feature ends. The Bonus Meter is reset after every individual spin and each instance of Free Spin. The Bonus Game consists of Free Spins that are equal to the number of Bonus symbols shown in the game area at the end of the game round. Any activated features are reset at the commencement of the Bonus Game.
