The yellow Q, the green K and the red A return from 0.2x to 1x stake for 3 to 6 matching symbols.
The high-value symbols are all kinds of gems. The purple and blue ones pay from 0.2 to 1.75 times your stake for 3 to 6 symbols of a kind. The yellow gemstone returns from 0.25 to 2 times your stake for 3 to 6 symbols. The green gem has a value of from 0.5x to 3x for 3 to 6 symbols. The top-paying of the gemstones is the red one – 3 to 6 landed from left to right give you 1, 2, 3 or 7.5 times your stake.
The yellow star with the blue ‘W” on it is the wild. It substitutes missing symbols except for the bonus symbol. You can score 6 of a kind combinations only during the “Next Dimension” Free Spins Bonus rounds. There is a bonus symbol marked with the word “BONUS” on it. This one looks like a planet with gemstones in different colours.
During all stages of the gameplay, there is an active Dynamic Ways Feature. Each reel has its own “Dynamic Ways” zone with varying sizes and positions for each spin. The symbols that land on these zones are the active ones. They appear in bolder and more saturated colours that the rest of the symbols, which are inactive.
Wins formed within these zones are paid out. All symbols, including the bonus ones, are active only when they land in “Dynamic Ways” zones. The latter varies from 3 to 5 symbols height per spin and can result in from 243 to 3,125 ways to win at the most in the base game. On the top centre of the reels, you can see the active win ways for each spin.
