Wild – The “Golden Owl of Athena” symbol is Wild, substituting for all symbols other than Free Spins. The symbol is also a Scatter, meaning it will pay out if you have 3 or ore of them anywhere on the reels. 3 “Golden Owl of Athena” symbols anywhere on the reels will award the player with 1 coin. 4 “Golden Owl of Athena” symbols anywhere on the reels will award the player with 10 coins. 5 “Golden Owl of Athena” symbols anywhere on the reels will award the player with 100 coins.
Free Spins – The Free Spins symbol is also a Golden Owl of Athena, except this time it will have “Free Spins” written across it.
Free Spins – The number of Free Spins you are awarded is determined by the number of “Free Spins” symbols that you reveal. 3 “Free Spins” symbols will award you 8 free spins. 4 “Free Spins” symbols will award you with 12 free spins. 5 “Free Spins” symbols will award you with 20 free spins.
After triggering the Free Spins, a symbol (not the Wild symbol) is chosen at random to become a bonus symbol. If there are enough (this is not specified in the game rules) bonus symbols on the reels during the Free Spins feature then they will expand to fill all the reels.
Free Spins can be re-triggered. If this happens the bonus symbol will remain the same.
Double Up – After any win you can risk what you have earned by pressing the Double Up button. You bet half or all of your winnings and will win or lose based on the toss of a coin. You can attempt to double up as often as you like.
Buy Feature – You can skip straight to the Free Spins feature and be awarded 10 free spins if you are willing to spend cash on the “Buy Feature”. The amount you will have to spend is displayed on the button.
