The other 6 symbols are different colored stones of dark blue, blue, purple, green, orange and yellow, with lower values.
Wild Deal and Free Spins
There are only two bonus features in this online slot: Wild Deal and Free Spins.
Wild Deal: The wild deal feature can occur at any non-winning spin as long as a Wild lands on reel three. A winning combo is assured when up to four Wilds are on the reels.
Free Spins: This bonus feature is triggered when three or more Scatters land anywhere on the reels, with the player receiving 10 free spins. A Wild that does not form a winning combo is collected or “stashed” during this round. When three other Wilds are on the reels, the stashed Wild is added back to the reels for a winning combo. This feature cannot be triggered within the free spins.
Wild Scarabs is a very simple video slot. However simple it is, there’s a possibility of winning up to 1,733 times one’s bet per spin. It is a low variance game, offering small winnings on the side plus the occasional big pot win.
