The reels hold high-valued symbols such as the game logo, a Bengal tiger, and a white tiger. The remaining symbols are low-value and include various types of artifacts. There are no fixed paylines, but even the win amount is determined in a novel way. 3 or more identical symbols appearing on adjacent reels constitute a payline, whether starting from the leftmost or rightmost reels. The win amount, however, depends on how many of the symbols appear per reel. The more symbols appear per reel, the higher the win multiplier.

As an example, let’s look at the sample win below.  The Yellow Jewel symbol appears across all 5 reels. According to the paytable, this pays 125 credits. However, the total win amount is 500 credits because the Yellow Jewel appears twice on both the first and second reels. So the win amount would be computed by: 2 x 2 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 125 = 500 credits.

Wild symbols are present on reels 2, 3, and 4, and replace all symbols except Scatter and Bonus symbols. The game also features a Scatter symbol that pays out its own rewards when 3 or more appear anywhere on the reels. 3 Scatters will pay x2 of the bet amount; 4 Scatters will pay x10; 5 Scatters will pay x50 of the bet amount. That means you could win up to 2500 credits on a Scatter win alone!

The Tiger’s Eye is your Bonus symbol which can trigger a minimum of 8 free spins when 5 Bonus symbols appear on consecutive reels. Every Bonus symbol beyond the 5 needed to trigger the feature will give an additional 8 free spins. More Bonus Symbols during free spins can add more!
