Jeff & Scully Features
The action takes place on an eerie 7x7 grid. Why eerie? Well, instead of standard paylines, players benefit from the quite unique Area Win mechanic: when 4 matching symbols land on the grid to function as the corners of a square or rectangle, all the symbols within that area transform into that symbol, so you can end up with winning combinations of up to 49 symbols!
Once wins are collected, their symbols disappear and are replaced by more symbols, although Multiplier symbols, Pay Coins and unused Wilds stick in place until they’re either utilised or until no more winning combinations drop.
In ascending order of value, the pay symbols are chemtrails, cows, aliens, pyramids, JFK, moon landings, Scully, and Jeff. If you land a 4-symbol Area Win, you can win between 0.05x and 1x the bet. On the other hand, if you manage to land a massive 49-symbol win, you’ll pocket 5x to 25x the bet.
The Speech Bubbles are Wild symbols, and they can substitute for any pay symbol. Although Wilds normally stick until they’re either used or until there are no more wins, if a Wild is used to form an Area Win, it is removed on the redrop. Finally, You want to avoid the Blocker symbols, as these only serve to block positions in the game area.
If any Multiplier symbols fall within an Area Win, they are applied to that win. If more than one falls, their values are added together. If any Pay Coins are part of an Area Win, you pocket those as well. Area Wins of 24 symbols or more will increase the value of your multipliers and pay coins. If you land a winning combination made up of Jeff symbols, you trigger the Jeff feature: every symbol within the Area Win pays out as if it were an Area Win. A Scully Area Win triggers the Scully feature, meaning up to 3 pairs of symbols swap positions, potentially forming more Area Wins.
To enter the Bonus game, you need to land at least 3 Diamond symbols within an Area Win. You start the round with 10 free spins, and all multipliers and instant Pay Coins stick to the game area throughout. You’ll also notice that subsequent Diamond symbols accumulate on a meter above the game area. If you accumulate 3, you’ll retrigger the Bonus round. Get to 4, and you’ll trigger the Super Bonus round.
Both in the standard game and the Bonus game, if you land 4 Diamond Scatter symbols, you enter the Super Bonus game. It’s basically the same as the standard Bonus game, except for one major difference: the multipliers and instant pay coins increase their value with every drop!
Players outside the UK will be able to take advantage of ELK Studios’ X-iter function. First off, is the option to increase the chances of triggering the Bonus game, which costs 3x the bet. For 10x the stake, you get to play with a full grid of symbols. 25x the bet will trigger either the Jeff or Scully feature. Immediate access to the Bonus round costs 100x the bet. 500x the bet will give you immediate access to the Super Bonus round.
