When any win/collection of wins is achieved, after this win has been processed the winning symbols shall disappear and more symbols shall cascade down to fill the vacant space, potentially awarding more wins.

Butterfly Free Spins Bonus
- Revealing a Butterfly insignia during the Quest Trigger initiates the Butterfly Free Spins bonus.
- After a short screen transition, the player will be presented with a new screen containing the Free Spin reels, a new UI panel below the reels and the Butterfly Multipliers above the reels.
- Once Free Spins begin they shall play automatically with the player able to use the ‘START/SKIP’ button to skip any win processing should they wish to.
- The Butterfly Multipliers above the reels is a succession of win multipliers that increases with each new cascade during a free spin.
- On the initial cascade any line wins pay the same as in the base game. However, after the first Cascade any additional line wins advances the Butterfly Multiplier meaning any new line wins are multiplied by 2. Similarly after the 2nd cascade, if any line wins are made then the Butterfly Multiplier advances again thus multiplying the new line wins by 3. The maximum Butterfly multiplier is 5x at which point all further line wins are multiplied by 5 until no further wins are created.
- As each free spin plays out, all wins shall accumulate into the ‘Cascade Win’ meter situated above the reels. At the end of a Free Spin all accumulated Cascade Wins are transferred to the ‘Bonus Win’ meter situated below the reels.
- During Free Spins, bonus Flower symbols on reels 1, 2 and 3 awards up to an additional 10 Free Spins. The player is prompted to pick one of the three flowers, which then reveals the number of additional Free Spins.
- During each Free Spin the winnings shall accumulate into the ‘Cascade Win’ meter above the reels then transfer to the ‘Bonus Win’ meter situated below the reels, at the end of a free spin. Once all free spins are completed the total amount of bonus winnings accumulated is awarded to the player and the game transitions back to the main game.
Buried Treasure Bonus
- Revealing a Buried Treasure insignia during the Quest Trigger initiates the Buried Treasure bonus.
- After a short screen transition, the player will be presented with the classic Bejeweled 8x8 grid along with a bonus winnings meter and a buried treasure panel.
- Buried Treasure plays the same as the original game, except it plays out automatically so requires no player interaction. Prizes are awarded for matching 3, 4 and 5 gems rather than points like in the casual game.
- As combinations are made, the player is awarded a prize based on the combination and all the grid positions contained within the combo are uncovered. During the bonus, if an item of Treasure is revealed, it is added to the treasure panel to the left of the grid. If 3 items of treasure are collected then an end game bonus is awarded.
- The treasure panel expands to cover the grid and the player is prompted to select an item of treasure. The selected item of treasure shall reveal a bonus cash prize ranging from 10-100 x Total Bet that is added to the bonus winnings meter and then the bonus ends.
Mystery Cash Prize
- Revealing the Gold Coins insignia during the Quest Trigger awards the player a mystery cash prize, which will be a multiplier of the player's Total Bet.
- A visual will take place of the player's selected badge scaling to cover the reels, before the value awarded will count up on the badge up to the player's final win. This is then transferred to the ‘Win’ meter and the bonus ends.
- By selecting 'AUTOPLAY' you can choose to place up to 50 bets automatically, one after the other or UNTIL QUEST. Select your stake as normal then press the 'AUTOPLAY' button to select the number of 'Autoplay' bets you want to play.
- Auto Play will turn off if you get into any bonus round including Free Spins.
