The game layout is 5 x 3 with five reels. The slot has a non-standard number of lines – 17. You can't reduce their number. There is no quick spin or risk game for doubling.
Combinations must start on the left reel. The number of characters in each combo should be from two to five. In one round, all ordinary combinations on different lines are paid for. Since replacement symbols form their own paid chains, the game will have a situation of choosing from two combinations on the line. Only the most valuable combo will be paid for.
There are 10 regular symbols:
The statuette of a peacock. This is the most expensive symbol. It moves on the reels as a stack, but may not completely close the vertical.
The other eight symbols are four robbers and five playing card symbols. All these characters are single, not stacked.
There are an incredible number of special characters – nine.
Scatter is a key. The scatter plays on all the reels and does not create its own combinations. Three or more scatters anywhere on the screen trigger a bonus game with a selection of items.
Wilds are letters "W" in different fonts. Wildy act as jokers, replacing the linear characters. In addition, all the wilds are combined when building their own combinations. All eight substitutes can appear on any vertical, both in regular spins and in free spins.
Regular Wild. It is yellow in color. This is a Joker with no special features.
Extra Wilds. These are additional single substitutes. There are four of them. They only appear in free spins.
Random Wilds. There are always several random substitutes in the rotation: from three to five. Activation occurs approximately every 40th round in the main game.
Walking Wild. This is a walking or moving substitute. It is activated with approximately the same frequency on any reel. Every round Walking wild moves one square to the left until it leaves the screen. Up to three walking wilds can appear at the same time.
Wild Reel. This is a stack wild that closes the vertical completely. Triggered in the main game infrequently less than every 100th round. There can be up to three stacked wilds simultaneously.
The last three jokers appear randomly in the main game and can be assigned as a permanent feature in free spins.
