The game has both a wild and a scatter symbol. The wild is represented by the Lightning Horseman himself and substitutes all other symbols except the scatter. The latter is represented by a Lightning Bolt symbol. Landing a set number of these will trigger some interesting bonus features which we’ll take a look at below.
Landing anywhere between 6 and 13 scatters will trigger the Lightning Respin feature. As the name implies, players will receive 3 initial spins. All Lightning Bolts are held in place throughout the respins. For each subsequent Lightning Bolt symbol landed, the respins reset to 3 and all scatters remain in place. Once completed, all remaining scatter symbols are flipped to reveal prizes. It’s worth pointing out that not all Lightning Bolts that are flipped will generate winnings.
There’s actually more to the Lightning Respin round. Collecting a total of 15 Lightning Bolts will trigger a Flippin’ Retrigger. What this feature means is that all Lightning Bolts are reflipped. This time round, all symbols will show a winning amount.
That’s not the only perk of these Lightning Horseman slot bonus feature. Players are also in with a chance of being awarded a Lightning jackpot but more on this below.
It’s worth pointing out that we’re not referring to progressive jackpots here. Jackpot prizes are fixed and not influenced by the amount you bet. Still the odds of being awarded a jackpot will increase with higher bets.
There are 4 possible jackpot prizes that can be revealed when a Lightning Bolt is flipped. We’ve listed them below.
- Mini Jackpot
- Minor Jackpot
- Major Jackpot
- Grand Jackpot
The first three can be won multiple times during a bonus round. The Grand Jackpot on the other hand is a much higher amount but it can only be won once in every bonus.
