Pokie symbols: experience exterminator’s life
There are 8 regular symbols, a Wild icon (a Truck), 2 Scatters and a bonus symbol. Regular symbols pay from left to right when there are at least 3 of a kind on an active payline so it is advisable to engage all the 30 lines each spin in order to maximize the probability of winning. The top payouts are earned by 5 matching symbols on an active line. Regular symbols include a welcoming You Are Not Welcome door carpet, a Deadly Warnings icon, a Welcome to Raccoon City sign, a Striped Raccoon Tail, a Cage, a Garbage Bins icon, a Raccoon and Alvis Goodman the Exterminator (listed in ascending order of payouts). Extermination of furry nuisance is a lucrative business and the paytable features payouts running from x2 up to x500 ($2500 at the maximum bet). If you want some more, take some extra hours and earn huge extra cash in a free spin mode with a random multiplier.
Sticky Win feature: freeze where you are and pay!
A Sticky Win feature activates at each win in a base round and it is meant for maximizing your win each time there is any winning combination. Winning icons stick to their positions where they appear and all other icons re-spin (at no cost for a gambler). If more winning symbols appear during a re-spin, the reels re-spin again and again until the winning capacity of a round is fully exhausted and no winning symbol is added to the current winning combos.
This feature is a splendid addition to the pokie: imagine you land 3 Cages and earn 75 coins. A Sticky Win feature activates right away, all other icons re-spin and here it is – you score 1 more Cage (or a Wild) pushing your win up to 150. The reels re-spin again and the chances are to add one more Cage and score 375 coins or end up the feature and collect 150 coins! All re-spins are free for you. The feature also activates when 3 or more Scatters (Footprints and Blueprints) appear anywhere on the reels in a base round.
Free spins: join Great Raccoon Chase!
A Footprints symbols is a Scatter. Landing 5 or more Footprints symbols in any position on any reel triggers Great Raccoon Chase Free Spins. Besides the fact it is free, an extra pleasure of a free spin mode is produced by a random multiplier. During each free spin a random multiplier appears and applies to all wins. The multiplier ranges from x1 to x5, therefore the paytable during free spins may offer payouts ranging from x10 up to x2500 or up to $12,500 at the maximum bet of $150! Note that wild symbols (Trucks) and both scatters are inactive during free spins.
Wild as a Raccoon: Wild icon and a Wild reel
Alvin’s Truck is a Wild icon. This nice little truck is well equipped to substitute for all regular symbols as any decent Wild does. However, the wild does not sub for Scatters (Footprints and Blueprints). Yet there is more in this Truck.
If the truck occurs during a Sticky Wild feature, it gets fixed in place along with winning symbols and stays on the reels till the end of the feature. It then turns into a Wild Reel, an entire Wild reel! Wins are recalculated taking the wild reel into account, and you receive a relevant payout as per the pokie’s paytable. The wild icon and a wild reel appear on reel 4 only.
Second screen bonus round: find the raccoon!
There are two Scatters as is said above. The first scatter, a Footprints icon, triggers free spins. The second Scatter is a Blueprint icon. No successful raccoon chase is possible without an accurate blueprint: an exterminator has to know each and every hole and crack where a raccoon can slip away. Going after a wild raccoon, take care to have enough blueprints, at least 5: landing 5 or more Blueprints scattered on the reels activates the second screen bonus round. It is a real fun!
The raccoon is hiding and you show Alvin where to look for the raccoon: a door, a window, a garbage bin. Not every guess is correct but every try does pay a nice instant cash prize. The award may be x8 or x30 of the initial bet in a triggering round.
A win in a standard round activates the Double Up button and a gamble feature. Alvin holds a deck of cards and you are to bet on Reds or Blacks to double your base round win in a single click. Alvin is not in a hurry so there is no limit on doubling. Enjoy this feature with Elvin for as long as you want!
