3 treasure chest scatters will trigger the Flaming Fee Spins feature, instantly giving you 6 free spins. Positions in the upper grid that are unlocked by flaming skulls during free spins remain uncovered for the duration of the feature, unlocking all the covered positions gives you an additional 2 free spins per row and with a total of 6 rows, this means you could achieve a total of 10 extra free spins over and above the initial 6. The respins feature functions the same way as it would in the base game.
The Flaming skull wild triggers the Skulls UP! Respin feature. Each flaming skull that appears on the reels triggers a respin. If you get an additional flaming skull or regular skull symbol during a respin, a position in the grid above the reels is uncovered, giving you additional ways to win, up to a maximum of 1944. You can get an additional 6 open positions per reel on the upper grid. Getting a win with a flaming skull wild transforms it into a regular skull wild for the next spin.
