Hitting the Noah’s Ark Jackpot
The top fixed jackpot in Noah’s Ark base game is a whopping 10,000 coins and this will be won when all 5 of the Wild symbols line up across the reels on an enabled payline.
In addition to the jackpot symbol players will also find turtles, elephants, camels, hippos and a lion along with J, Q, K and A lower value playing card symbols. The Noah’s Ark symbol is the Wild and the Dove is the Scatter.
The games symbols are very brightly coloured and contrast well with the darker brown background of the reels that represents wooden Noah’s Ark.
Wild and Scatter Wins
In addition to being the key to the base game jackpot, Noah’s Ark’s Wild symbol is also a multiplier and can stand in for all other symbols to create a winning combination. All Wild wins will be doubled as a 2x multiplier is added to every successful combination made using this icon.
The Dove Scatter symbol unlocks the games free spins bonus round and can only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. To activate the bonus round a player must line up an enabled payline with 5 or 6 of the Doves and be rewarded with either 5 or 10 free spins respectively. During the free spins a different set of reels is used and crocodile, emu, giraffe and zebra symbols appear, adding to the number of different animals that have made it on board Noah’s Ark.
Free spins cannot be retriggered and once completed, players will be returned to the base game.
Many of the symbols in Noah’s Ark feature two animals and as only 3 animals are required to create a winning combination; player’s chances of success are increased. Theoretically, having 2 animals per symbol mean that players are able to land up to ten matching animals on the reels after one spin, resulting in the highest possible payout of 2500x the line bet stake. It’s also important to take note that if a Wild stands in for any other symbol it counts as two, making winning big even more of a possibility.
