  • If three or more identical symbols lined up, find the coin win value in the Pay Table. There you can for all symbols find the value for 3 in a row, 4 in a row, and 5 in a row. Only the highest winning combination per line is paid out.
  • The above doesn’t include any Freespin and Bonus symbols which pay scattered.
