Evolution™ Video Slot Game Tutorial

Evolution™ is a video slot that is built up of 5 separate reels, with 3 rows, 25 bet lines and 10 different bet levels. The win lines run from left to right, and the reels spin from the bottom upwards instead of the normal top to bottom spin. The game has 3 bonus features, being Wild and Free Spin symbols and the Evolution™ bonus game.

How to Play Evolution™ Slot

Wild Symbols

Wild symbols are symbols that replace all other symbols, except for Free Spin symbols, to create a winning combination. The Wild symbols of the Evolution™ video slot can appear on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5 and either during the main game as during the Evolution™ bonus game.

Free Spin Symbols

Free Spin symbols anywhere on the reels will activate the Free Spin mode. For 2 Free Spin symbols you’ll receive your wager multiplied by 2 (2x).
When 3 Free Spin symbols appear on the reels you’ll receive your wager multiplied by 4 and you’ll get 10 Free Spins. With 4 Free Spin symbols your wager will be multiplied by 20 and you’ll get 15 Free Spins and with 5 Free Spins symbols on the reels your wager multiplies by 100 and you’ll get 20 Free Spins.
The Free Spins will always be played with the same coin value and bet level as was played in the round that activated the Free Spin mode. During the Free Spin mode no extra Free Spins can be won.

The Evolution™ Bonus Game

The Evolution™ bonus game can be activated during the Free Spin mode by winning symbol combinations. The bonus game will start after the pay out of these wins. After being paid out the winning combination in the Free Spin mode, all symbols of the combination and all identical symbols on the reels will evolve to the next level, except for occurring Wild symbols. When winning combinations simultaneously appear on the reels, the symbols of these different combinations will evolve separately from each other to the next level. The reels will stay the same until a new winning combination is formed, or until the Free Spin mode is finished. The Evolution™ bonus only applies until the highest symbol of each symbol group. The two symbol groups in the Evolution™ bonus game consist of two groups with 5 different symbols each; one group with the most evolved, complex organisms, and another group with simple, single cell organisms. Wild symbols won’t evolve during the bonus game.

Evolution™ Video Slot Bet Limits

The Evolution™ video slot is automatically played with 25 fixed win lines and you can pick from 10 different bet levels and 6 different coin values.
The bet level is the number of coins you play with on each bet line. The coin value is the amount of money one coin is worth. So, the bet level will be multiplied with the coin value to determine the total bet amount per spin.

The coin values you can choose from in Evolution™ are: 1 cent, 2 cents, 5 cents, 10 cents, 20 cents and 50 cents. When you multiply the coin value with the bet level you can calculate the minimum and maximum bets for the Evolution™ video slot.

Minimum bet: bet level 1 = 25 coins and coin value € 0,01 = € 0,25
Maximum bet: bet level 10 = 250 coins and coin value € 0,50 = € 125

Pay Table / Win Plan

To see when you will win something or which symbols are part of a winning combination, you can view the pay table. The pay table exactly shows how many coins you win for which combinations on a win line. As mentioned earlier, a win line always runs from left to right. You can view the pay table by clicking the PAYTABLE button. This button can be found at the bottom left of the screen. Only the highest winnings on a bet line will be paid. When winnings occur on more than one win line, they will be added up.

Evolution™ Possible Game Settings
