The playing card icons are the low paying symbols. The gold that Robin Hood stole from the rich is the wild symbol. It appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4. A pair of flaming arrows is the scatter symbol that awards 7 free spins that can be retriggered. The highlight of Archer is the unique Expand and Split feature. It is triggered when any symbol in a winning combination has an arrow border and there is a scatter symbol anywhere on the reels. Then the symbols with the arrow border will expand to occupy all positions on the same reel. However, they will not replace the symbols already there. Both symbols will be displayed and can independently contribute to winning combinations. During the free spins the Expand and Split feature gets activated even when there is no scatter symbol present. Archer also includes the optional Playtech gamble game, which you can activate after any winning spin in an attempt to double your payout. Archer is also a 243 ways to win online pokie.
