HOW TO PLAY
The 5-reel, 3-row layout is initially configured to 243 ways to win. Owing to additional reel on the top and bottom, the number of winning ways can increase up to 1,125. Since there are no traditional paylines, symbols are to appear on adjacent reels from left to right in order to issue payouts. Once the game loads you should configure your wager, with values ranging from $0.10 and $100. Press Spin to begin or if you’d prefer to lean back and relax, enable Autoplay where up to 100 automatic rounds are at your disposal.
The reels are occupied with symbols characteristic of land-based machines. Bells and Red Sevens take up the upper part of the paytable awarding payouts of 7x and 8x the bet respectively for 5 of a kind. Other high-value symbols include Bar, Cloves and Horseshoes that grant 4x, 5x and 6x your stake correspondingly when 5 of a kind appear. Low-paying symbols are represented with a Star, Spades, Diamonds, Hearts and Clubs, each delivering 2x the wager if 5 of a kind are on a winline.
With three different Wilds, a base game Bonus feature and a Free Spins round, this slot truly has an action-packed gameplay that offers a host of chances to land wins.
Sidewinder slot has 3 Wilds on offer, all capable of replacing all other symbols but Scatter. The standard Wild lands merely on horizontal reels but expands on them to cover all positions.
Scatter is represented with the Sidewinder logo, appearing on the second, fourth and all horizontal reels. When landing on the reels 2 and 4, Scatters trigger the Sidewinder feature.
Top Wild lands in the lowest horizontal position, on the reel 2 only, while Bottom Wild appears merely in the upper row of the reel 4. Once either of them hit their respective positions, the Sidewinder feature is triggered. Additional reels become active, the number of ways to win grows and there are greater chances to land Wilds. As mentioned, this bonus can also be activated with Scatters.
Landing 3 or 4 Scatters grants 6 and 10 freebies where both horizontal reels become active and offer 1,125 ways to win. During this feature, standard Wilds and Scatters appear on horizontal reels only. When Wild hits the same position on both of them, it becomes Expanding Wild and covers the space in between.
