The winning aim of this Yahtzee video slot is to roll the dice three times to get the highest possible combination. And rolling 5 of a kind is called a Yahtzee.
The game is initially set with 5 reels and 25 pay lines as described earlier.
The wild symbols appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. At the top right hand corner when Wild Multiplier Active is displayed, all line wins are multiplied by 2x till 36x-2 dice. The result is multiplied by each other.
The feature bet is activated with the addition of 15 credits. You can select any among the five stake amounts, which are 40c, 80c, $1.20, $2. As with other slot games, you need to get a minimum of 3 similar symbols in a straight line from left to right.
The top 3 payout symbols are red, yellow and cream boxes, which pay 500, 200, 150 coins when you get 5 consecutively. Wild symbols offer real big wins.
The wild symbol looks like celebratory fireworks. The wild replaces every other symbol to give you extra wins. It is a symbol, which appears in a win line. You will be presented with another screen where you will roll 2 dice, which acts as a multiplier for the win.
- Bonus Symbol: The bonus symbol shows itself only on the reel 5. When you get this symbol, it in turn awards you with a number of some more bonus symbols. It is possible to play the option with only one symbol but your wins will depend on 1x multiplier. More the bonus symbols, bigger will be the multiplier value. In other words, if you are getting 3 bonus symbols, the multiplier will be 3x.
- The bonus feature is activated on its own when you have 5 symbols. Then to shake the dice, you have to click the blue cup. The dice gives the biggest value when the blue cup is rolled again. You will get 3 rounds of rolls giving you an opportunity of getting a Yahtzee. Even if you cannot accomplish this, you will be given a Chancey bonus, a multiplier of your initial win.
- Roll Symbols: When you have 5 scatter roll symbols on adjoining reels, the Free Roll bonus feature is activated. However, this feature is little difficult to land since the scatter has to land on each of the 5 reels. If you manage to roll a Yahtzee on the very first roll of the bonus feature, you will be blessed with a grand First Roll Yahtzee Jackpot. This will grant you with 4500 times your stake.
The Back to Back Yahtzee Jackpot is activated when you roll a Yahtzee after Yahtzee, which results in an amazing 40,000 times your stake.
