In its video pokies section, Playtech includes a special sub category known as Multi Spin pokies. There are five different titles on offer. This article discusses Ocean Princess in detail because it is one of the more popular Multi Spin pokies. You first have to select the coin size from AU$0.05 to AU$1.00 and can wager up to 5 coins per payline. This Multi Spin structure consists of five independent three-reel sets with single paylines. Each reel set is referred to as a line and all five have to be played by default. Your total bet will be five times the product of the coin size and the number of coins.
When you activate the game, at first only the bottom line spins and comes to rest. You have the option of holding any of the reels. This repeats the symbol held in the remaining four lines and the selected reels are fixed. Discerning online casino players will realise the similarity of this process to multi-hand video poker games. You then activate the Spin button again. The reels that are not held will spin in each line and come to rest. Each line pays out independently as per a common payout table.
In Ocean Princes the turtle and the crown are special symbols. The turtle will pay out even if one or two appear on a line. The crown is the wild symbol and will substitute for other symbols. Ocean Princess has an ocean theme and the symbols include anchor, seahorses, crabs and starfish. These symbols have to appear in all three reels in a line in order to pay out. Most symbols appear in three different colours and like symbols in the same colours pay more than like symbols in different colours. The payouts given are multipliers of the line bet. You should play with 5 coins because it makes you eligible for a jackpot payout. In Ocean Princess this jackpot payout is 1,000 coins for three wild crown symbols.
Triple Profits is a three line Multi Spin pokie with a bank theme and symbols like gold, cash and safe. It includes a bonus game. Goblin's Cave is a similar game but uses as symbols the treasures hoarded by goblins. It also has a bonus game. Ugga Bugga is a ten line game with an African tribal theme. Tropic Reels is a five line game with exotic creatures, fruits and flowers found in the tropics as symbols. These games can be played at Playtech online casinos like Omni Casino and Mansion Casino.
