Expanding Wilds and Free Spins
The wild symbol will only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 and the wild will expand across the reel. The expanding wild will activate a respin and if another wild appears players will be given another free spin. A maximum of 3 respins are possible. This feature is triggered when 3 or more of the bonus symbols appear on the reels.
During the free spins round the wild symbol may appear on top, middle or bottom of the last reel. If it creates a winning combination the 2 connecting symbols will become wild.
Pick Me Bonus Round
The pick me bonus is activated when 3 or more bonus symbols appear on the reels. During this round players will have to pick a box to reveal free spins. Players can win between 10 and 30 free spins. They will also be able to see what they missed out on. During the pick me bonus the wild symbol will only appear on the last reel and this will happen because one of the Heavy Metal Warriors may fire an arrow or throw an axe and transform the symbols to the left of the wild symbol and it will also become wild. This would mean that players would have 5 in a row if a symbol appears on reel 1 and 2.
