Spring Tails is set in front of a traditional wooden Chinese mansion seen on the right. The playing area takes almost all the screen. Around it, there are magnificent mountain ranges in turquoise, mist and clouds. The reels are in the centre of attention and appear large in front of your eyes.
The reels’ background is light-yellow. You can see 4 cards of the royals each in a different colour. There is a lump of cheese, several peanuts, a bag of rice with a Chinese symbol on it. You can land of the superb white pearl with bamboo sticks around it, 3 diamonds and 2 golden ingots.
The scatter is a highly ornamented golden key. The multiplier wild is a white mouse with a hat that looks like taken from a cartoon. The images are colourful, bright and superb in a cartoon style. The soundtrack is a traditional and melodic Chinese tune.
The low-value symbols are 4 cards. The J and Q return equally – 3, 4 or 5 on a pay-line give you 0.40x, 1.60x and 6x stake. When you hit 3, 4 or 5 of the K or A cards you will be paid 0.60x, 2.40x or 8x stake, respectively.
The premium symbols are all kinds of Chinese icons in the theme of the year of the rat. The cheese lump gives you 1.20x, 4x and 12x when you land 3, 4 or 5 symbols in a combination. The peanuts are next in value – land 3, 4 or 5 on a pay-line to win 1.60x, 5x or 15x stake, respectively. The bag of rice with the Chinese hieroglyph on it pays 2x, 6x and 20x stake for 3, 4 and 5 symbols.
The pearl pays 5x, 15x and 60x stake for 3, 4 and 5 symbols. The 3 diamonds in different colours reward 10x, 30x and 120x stake for 3, 4 and 5 symbols on a line. The best player is the icon with the two golden ingots. Hitting 3, 4 and 5 of these in paying combinations grants you 20x, 50x and 5,000x stake wins!
There are Lucky Rat Wilds that can occur on reels 2, 3 and 4. As usually, these substitute for normal missing symbols. Each wild includes a random multiplier value of x3, x4 and even x5. When more of these land they multiply their values – thus, 5x and 3x multiplier wilds give you a 15x boost! When multiplier wilds stack they can give you a total of up to 60x multiplier boost!
The golden key symbol is the scatter and gives you a payout for getting even 1 or 2 of this symbol. One scatter returns you bet while 2 symbols give you 3 times your bet.
Getting 3 golden scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4 in one spin unlocks the rich mansion and triggers 12 Free Spins. During these rounds, the low-value royal cards won’t appear. This means that you will win from premium symbols’ combination only. They will be boosted with multiplier wilds! You cannot re-trigger free spins or add more of them during the bonus game.
If you are impatient and don’t want to wait to trigger the free spins naturally, you can use the Buy Feature button. You can receive the bonus game for 60 times your bet. Then, you will get payouts from the 12 rounds.
