This action-packed pokie has regular Wild Symbols, Scatter Symbols, Stacked Wilds and Smashing Wilds and you can play to win some really big prizes during the Free Spins Bonus Round. This will instantly trigger when three or more of the Scatter Symbols land in any position across any of the five reels.
