In the game, the wild snake symbol substitutes for all other symbols except for nymph scatter. It only appears in the base game and will increase the multiplier metre by one whenever three or more appear in a spin.
Moreover, the scatter water nymph is a non-paying symbol used for triggering the free spins feature. Three or more scatters appearing in a single spin will award a number of free spins in the bonus game when it is finally triggered.
Moving on to the tree of life, this grows around the reels and will bloom one golden flower for every spin showing three or more scatters anywhere on the reels. After the ninth flower has bloomed and the tree reaches the crystal multiplier, the free spins feature game will be triggered automatically.
The final number of free spins awarded will be determined by the total number of winning scatters that appeared in all spins leading up to the bonus game being triggered.
The crystal multiplier can award a prize multiplier that is applied to all wins in the free spins. If a multiplier is awarded at the start of the free spins, then all line wins in those free spins will be multiplied by that number – the maximum multiplier possible is x5.
During the free spins bonus game, the water nymph changes from a scatter to an expanded sticky wild that only appears on the middle reel where she is held for the duration of the feature.
Furthermore, during free spins, any time the three major symbols – otter, frog and dragonfly – appear in a winning line, they will first pay for their initial line wins. Afterward, the wild nymph will shoot them with her big bonus gun and reveal the piles of gold they each sit on. These same wins are then paid again before the next spin.
Additionally, if the player was awarded a prize multiplier going into the free spins, then these secondary pays are also multiplied.
Finally, when all free spins are complete, the player is returned to the base game. Here, the wild snake is returned to the reels and the water nymph returns to a non-paying scatter symbol, while the tree of life is reset to zero.
