Wild Falls Features
The Klondike River has a couple of special surprises waiting patiently for you to discover. And as you will soon come to realise, all bonuses in this game rely heavily on those chests bobbing around the top of the waterfall.
Without them, you'll be stuck in the base game picking up regular wins. Thankfully, even though the game has high variance, the chests do make their way down the falls fairly regularly.
The wild chests sit at the top of the screen and have 2 important roles in this game. But it isn't enough to see them fly off the top of the waterfall; you need to see them stick to the reels as well. Sometimes they fly straight past and don't do you any good whatsoever.
When you are lucky enough to see them stick, these chests will act as a wild symbol. And they will substitute for all others. They will only land on the 3 central reels so forget about hitting wilds on the first reel in this game. This is a bit of a pet hate for some players but it is what it is!
Sometimes the chests can turn gold and a 2x, 3x or 5x multiplier is added to the symbol. This can mean some decent prizes and also help enhance the main free spins round.
When a wild chest drops over the edge and sticks to the reels, you will automatically trigger a respin.
During this feature, it's possible that more chests will arrive and not only add more wilds to the occasion but also take you one step closer to the free spins round. If no chests land during the re-spin, then the game returns back to normal and it all starts over again.
Whether you land 3 chests in a row or they arrive via a series of respins, it doesn't really matter. You will see the river turn gold and there is a good chance that your luck is about to change.
There aren't a fixed number of free spins available. It all depends on how long the chests stay around for during the feature game. When a chest lands during the free spins, it can stick and continue to make its way down the reels one step at a time.
In theory, there are an infinite number of free spins available. But this isn't where the very best prizes will be found. That is reserved for the super free spins.
The road to riches comes courtesy of the golden chests. These prize-winning boxes with multipliers can also trigger the free spins game when 3 of them stick in view during the base game.
The main difference with this enhanced feature is that the chests will remain gold throughout and continue to display their multiplier figures for the duration of your free spins. It is possible to fill the 3 central reels with golden chests giving a massive 125x multiplier.
