These paylines are fixed, therefore meaning they can not be adjusted. However, there is the ability to make the reels turn faster or let them spin automatically with the various options that NetEnt provide players with their games.

Character pay-outs!

The game has a number of characters and these individuals are the best rewarding in regards to the payouts that can be achieved. Whilst the traditional playing card icons – 10, J, Q, K and A – are available, Flare, Chronos, Zero X and Psyop are the symbols that need to be collected from the paytable.

Deep Pockets is the game’s most rewarding icon, though, as he has the ability to provide bettors with 50x their stake when five of him land across one of the 20 paylines.

In addition, there is a Wild available which can substitute all icons on the grid to help form wins, although it does not have the ability to transform the Scatter; however this icon has its own rewarding feature when three feature!

Feature Bonuses

As mentioned, the Scatter has its own special ability as it can provide players with the ‘Free Spins’ game. When three of these appear on reels 1, 3 and 5 in one spin, players will be taken to a screen where they will take on Deep Pockets as they look to defeat the villain.

There are four levels in this feature, with each getting progressively more difficult. However, if they are completed, the rewards can be attractive. Each stage sees Deep Pockets’ health points increase, although the multiplier won if he is defeated will increase as well. If all four stages are successfully passed, then players with achieve an extra reward which is known as the ‘Victory Bonus’.

In addition to the ‘Free Spins’ feature, each of the characters possess the ability to provide players with some added bonuses:

  • Pysop will activate a Stacked Wilds feature which will see three of them cover a whole reel. Between two or three reels will be covered.
  • Zero X activates the Overlay Wilds feature and this will see between three and five Wilds be added to the reels randomly.
  • The Flare character will trigger a Multiplier feature and will see wins be increased by either 3x, 4x or 5x when they occur.

Chronos, though, provides players with a re-spin feature. This is activated when a non-winning spin happens, although it is random and does not always happen. Players will see each reel re-spin in the attempt to form a winning combination. This will continue to happen until one does appear. Each re-spin, though, will provide players with a multiplier that progresses in value starting from 2x and going up to 10x.
