Symbols in the game include classic A-10 royals followed by eagle, panther, alligator, python and otter premiums which double in value when boosted.
Moving onto special symbols, the wild appears on reels two, three and four, substituting for all other symbols except the free spins.
The title incorporates features such as respins, jackpots, symbol collection, an Armadillo Link and five free spin choices.
Starting with wild respins, landing one or more wilds will create a respin after all wins are paid for the spin. If one or more extra wilds land on the reels during a respin, another respin will be awarded. If three or more wilds are on the reels after all respins are complete, the bonus game feature will trigger. The free spins cannot be triggered during the wild respins feature.
All wilds that lock onto the screen during the wild respin feature are converted to Armadillo credit symbols and awarded random credits accordingly. Other symbols disappear and these remaining positions on the reels will spin independently for three link spins to try and land more armadillo credit symbols. If at least one armadillo credit symbol lands on a respin, the number of link spins is reset to three.
During the link spins, there are four different armadillo credit symbols that may land. Should the armadillo credit symbol completely fill one, two, three and four or all five columns will award the mini, minor, major, mega or grand jackpot, respectively. Only the highest jackpot is awarded at the end of the link in addition to all the other coin wins.
Moving onto the pick enhancement accumulator, each of the five animals has a corresponding pick bonus accumulation meter which progresses with wins. Initially the number of picks for each bet level begins at three.
Moreover, while playing the base game, each win made on one of the animals will fill up its corresponding meter. Each time an animal meter completely fills, the picks shown for the animal increments by one and the meter resets toward progress for an additional pick.
When the free spins begin, the player is awarded the number of picks that were accumulated for the animal selected before starting the free spins. After the free spins, the number of picks are reset to three for that animal.
Moving onto the free spins bonus, this is activated by landing three or more free spin scatter symbols. Here, players must choose one of the collections among the eagle, panther, alligator, python, or otter to start the game with an initial four, five, six, seven or eight free spins, respectively.
