In Octopays the game is played on all 243 lines, giving you the best chance of forming winning combinations on each of your spins. You need to catch at least 3 symbols on one of the lines to get your payout.
Pay attention to the treasure chest – it is the best symbol in this game. For five of these icons you can get a winnings of 8000 coins.
A combination must contain at least three of the same image. The payout depends on the number and type of symbols and on the amount bet on the spin. The higher the bet, the bigger the prize.
Below is a list of payouts for combinations at the maximum bet:
• Chest – 350, 900, 8,000 coins for 3, 4, 5 symbols respectively;

• jack – 100, 400, 1,200;
• Ten or nine – 100, 400, 1,000.
The “wild” symbol is the yellow octopus. It substitutes for all others, completing combinations. The image appears only on the second and fourth reels.
Free spins and bonuses
When octopuses appear on the second and fourth reels at once, The Kraken Feature bonus is triggered. The user receives 12 freespins.
At the start of each freespin, the Kraken releases up to four octopuses. They land on any cell of the playing field, except the third reel, and also act as a wild symbol. Those octopuses that don’t form a successful combination swim away. The animals involved in the winning sequence remain in place.
A second special symbol appears in the bonus round – the moray. When it falls on the third reel, the remaining octopus darkens. Combinations with these images pay twice as many coins.
The moray is also a wild symbol. Combinations with her also reward double. Combinations with octopus and moray also increase winnings by 2 times.
At the end of the freespin, all the octopuses swim away to reappear at the start of the next one. The bonus game is not restarted.
