Reel 3 is a permanent Hotline zone where any wilds that land will expand to fill the entire reel. If you activate the Double Bet feature, your wager is doubled and reels 3 and 4 will be hotlines. If you activate the Triple Bet feature, your wager will be trebled and reels 2, 3, and 4 will be hotlines.
If 3 scatters appear on the 3 middle reels, you will receive 7 free spins. If a wild lands on a hotline reel during this feature, the reel will increase in size by one symbol, up to a maximum of 6 rows in height. If 3 hotline reels are all extended to their full height, your ways to win will be increased to 1944 from 243. You will be awarded 2 extra free spins for every hotline reel that reaches its full height.
If you can't wait for scatters to land, you can use the Bonus Buy feature to buy 7 free spins with 1, 2, or 3 hotlines activated for 20x, 40x, or 60x your bet, respectively.
