Winning combinations are removed. New symbols cascade into view to re-fill the empty positions to potentially form new wins. The process is repeated if new wins are continually being created. Only the highest winning combination per symbol is paid. Additionally, the win multiplier increases by one each time symbols cascade, resetting before the start of every spin. Winning combinations multiplied by the currently displayed value.
The Wild symbol substitutes for all symbols (except Scatter) and can appear on all reels.
The Scatter symbol only appears on reels 1, 3, and 5. When all 3 Scatter symbols are present, the Shimmer feature is always activated first. Between 0 and 3 Scatter symbols will split into two.
