Symbols in the game include five classic A-10 royals followed by five wild animals including rhinos, elephants, leopards, lions and buffalos.
Moving onto special symbols, wilds appear on all reels in the form of a tree and substitute for all other symbols except the free spins and money icons. Meanwhile, the gold diamond is a free spins symbol, used to trigger the free spins bonus.
Lastly, the money symbol appears on reels two, three and four in the base game and on all reels during the hold & spin super boost.
The slot incorporates features such as a free spins bonus and a hold & spin super boost.
In the game, landing three, four or five free spins symbols awards x5, x25 or x50 the bet and triggers and eight, 10 or 12 spins.
During the free spins round, at random spins the reel sets level up, progressively removing the lowest value symbol from them as follows: When the round starts, all lowest value symbols are on the reel strips; on the first, second, third, fourth, and fifth, a random level up is removed from the reel strips, and every time a random level up happens, a wild symbol is guaranteed to hit on the spin that the level up happened on.
Moreover, landing three or more money symbols triggers the Hold & Spin Super Boost. Here, the normal symbols fade away and only the money symbols that triggered the feature remain, moving to the middle cells of the screen. The normal reels are replaced with special reels containing only money symbols and empty spaces.
Whenever a money symbol hits and is adjacent vertically or horizontally with at least another, they link to each other, forming a group. All the money symbols in the group have their value increased to the next possible higher value.
Starting with three respins, all money symbols that hit and link after each respin, remain on the screen until the end of the round. Every time at least one hits and links, the number of respins is reset to three. The round continues until respins are finished or all positions on the screen are filled with money symbols.
