Gameplay and Paylines
On the reels of Big Break you come across a lot of interesting icons. First, of course, are the surfing monkeys, which are the highest paying symbols in this game. Payouts for them range from 3 coins for the 2 cheapest monkeys to 1000 for a line of 5 expensive ones. The low paying symbols in Big Break are the various fruits. Bananas, papaya, coconuts, kiwi and mango are waiting for you. For these icons you can win between 5 and 150 coins. Before you start spinning the reels, you will need to place a bet. In Big Break you can change both the number of active lines, the number of coins per line and the coin value. The first can be from 1 to 15, the second from 1 to 10 and the third from 0.01 to 0.50.
In Big Break, you’ll have 15 winning lines, giving you plenty of opportunities to make winning combinations on each spin. You’ll need to catch at least 2 high paying or 3 low paying symbols in one of the lines to get your payout.
Pay special attention to the grey monkey, which is the best symbol in this game. For a combination of 5 of these icons you can win 1000 coins.
A series of freespins is activated if three, four or five scatter symbols appear on the screen during the main game. Regardless of the number of images, the user receives 15 free spins. During the bonus rounds the game is played under the conditions set for the main game – the stake and the number of active lines remains the same.
Free spins involve special rules, in addition to the fact that the total bet is not deducted from the account at the time of launching the spin:
• all images with monkeys become scatter symbols – played without reference to the lines;
• the odds assigned to the images remain multipliers for the line bet;
• “Big Break’s wild” symbol can replace a missing monkey image and acts for both simple combinations and extra scatter combinations.
Given these features, the freespin series is more advantageous than the main game. First, the user does not lose credits during the prize rounds. Secondly, the probability of forming prize sequences increases. Freespins can be restarted if three, four or five Munky Wax images appear on the screen. The bonus game cannot be activated during the free spins.
The Surf’s Up prize game is triggered if five different monkey images appear on the playing field at the same time during the main game. Fulfilment of this condition opens an additional window with an embedded mini-game. Five monkeys will appear on the screen with their surfboards and a Start button. Pressing this button activates the flicker as it moves across the row of playable characters. To stop the flicker, press the Stop key. You win the winnings for the monkey that remains illuminated after stopping the flicker.
Different monkeys have different multipliers for the total bet:
• the gorilla gives a win by multipliers of x2-x50;
• lemur – x3 to x40;
• macaque – x4 to x30;
• orangutan – x5-x20;
• gibbon – x6-x15.
The resulting prize is displayed immediately in coins. The reward is proportional to the total bet. So, if a gibbon was highlighted as a result of a move and gave the highest multiplier (x15), you will get 15 total bets. If all 15 paylines were involved during the main game and the line bet in coins was 1, then the total bet is 15 coins. With these parameters, the winnings in the bonus game will be 225 coins.
