The bear is the wild symbol; it can land on reels two and four, and it will substitute for all of the other symbols, except for the scatter symbols, to help and form winning combinations.
The scatter symbol is a drum with a paw print on it and it is key to one of the bonus features.
The game’s main bonus feature is a free spins round and it begins when at least three scatter symbols land anywhere on the reels. You then have the choice of three different free spins games. The first awards you 20 free spins during which any wins with a wild symbol on the second or fourth reel are subject to a 2x multiplier, and if there are wilds on both reels then you receive a 4x multiplier. The second is 15 free spins during which a wild on reels two or four awards a 3x multiplier and a wild on both reels awards a 9x multiplier. The final mode is 10 free spins in which a wild on reels two or four awards a 4x multiplier and a wild on both reels awards a 16x multiplier.
In all three of the free spins modes, if a wild symbol lands on the reels it is held in place and you are awarded an additional free spin. During these extra spins, the multipliers become larger. In the first free spins mode they increase to 3x for a single wild and 9x for two wilds, in the second mode they become 4x for a single wild and 16x for two wilds, and in the third mode they become 6x for a single wild and 36x for two wilds.
Big Bear has a top payout of 30 times the total bet for landing five scatter symbols on the reels. The eagle can payout up to 10 times the total bet, the wolf up to 6 times the total bet, the lynx up to 2.5 times the total bet, the otter up to 1.5x the total bet and the fish up to 1 times the total bet. All six of the royal symbols can payout up to 0.4 times the total bet.
