The play process has the modes of gaming for money and as a demo (moneyless). Gamers can adjust:
As there are only 5 ways to win at most, the paylines’ formation is simple: 3 horizontal lines and 2 lines across the screen, between the screens’ playing field’s cube edges. Also, not the entire space of reels can be filled with symbols: there may be empty spaces as well.
The game does not have other symbols but the ones forming a win line: there are no wild, scatters, special bonus options, nothing that would give free spins, and no card symbols. Although ‘8’ is formally considered a wild symbol, which is able to substitute anything without exceptions, looking at the gaming mechanic, it becomes clear that 8 is the same regular symbol, capable of forming a payout, only appearing either taking 1 cell, 2 cells, or the full reel of 3 cells.
The winning combinations are formed by these symbols:
The table of wins is as such (3 elements must be in a payline):
As for the 8, the payout multiplier depends on the win line: 1,000 (central horizontal line); 2,000 (top horizontal line); 3,000 (bottom horizontal line); 4,000 (diagonal from left to right ascending); 6,000 (diagonal from left to right descending). Thus, given the max bet of 50 per spin and the max win of x6,000, the max win value is 300,000.
Looking at the slot, one recalls classic physical ‘one-armed bandits’, which were installed in casinos and gaming salons of the 1980s and 1990s. The graphic is nearly fully copied from them, as well as spinning visualization. A large play button looks closely to what the physical buttons of starting the spin had. The only difference is informational inscriptions on the screen, which change and tell about gaming rules or wish good luck.
