Information & Game Rules

How to Play

What are winning lines?

Dead Man’s Chest is a 20-line slot game that may present 20 winning combinations of five symbols across its five reels. A ‘win line’ is a line of symbols that MAY contain a winning combination when the reels stop. A win line must contain a minimum of three consecutive symbols (appearing from left to right) for any payout to be made. However, this does not apply to Scatters.

 

Selecting lines for play

Dead Man’s Chest will always play a 20-line game unless you intervene. That is, it will always proceed on the basis that 20 win lines are possible. Note that when you place a bet on Dead Man’s Chest your stake amount is accepted on a PER LINE basis. The more lines you have selected the greater the amount you need to stake. For example, if you have 10 lines selected and you stake £1, the overall stake amount will be £10.

 

If you do not want to play a 20-line game then use the Lines Button (+/-) to reduce/increase the number of possible win lines. For example (and with reference to the win-line table above): If you reduce the number of lines to 19, any possible payout from line 20 becomes unavailable. If you then reduce the number of lines to 18, any possible payout from lines 19 and 20 become unavailable, and so on.

 

Customising your line selection

You will notice that each line is represented by an Indicator Button, displayed on either side of the reels. These indicators are also illuminated when the game is first displayed, meaning all lines are active. You can disable/enable as many lines as you wish by clicking the appropriate Indicator Button.

 

Note: It is possible to use a combination of the Lines Button and individual Line Indicator buttons to select lines. If you are doing this then please remember the following:

 

If (-) is pressed the highest selected line is deselected. If (+) is pressed the lowest unselected line is selected.

 

Setting your stake amount

Once the number of lines you want to play have been selected it’s time to decide how much money to stake on each of them. Remember that stakes are accepted on a per line basis. To increase, or decrease, the amount you are going to bet on each line, click the plus (+) or minus (-) indicators on the Stake Button.

 

The total stake amount for your forthcoming Dead Man’s Chest game will be Stake/Line multiplied by the number of lines you have chosen to play. For example, if you select £2 in the Stake/Line box and you decide to play 20 lines then the total amount that will be staked on the next game will be £40. This is shown in the Stake area.

What you can win

Dead Man’s Chest displays its win values (or payouts) in its own Paytable. They can be viewed by clicking the Paytable Button. Payouts are based on specific symbol combinations appearing on win lines and are shown in multiples of the winning line stake amount. For example,5 – 750 means that if five instances of a particular symbol appear on the win line the payout will be 750 multiplied by amount staked, per line.

 

Note: For Mini Games Paytable detail is contained in a scrolling area. Use the left/right Arrow Buttons to move through the information. Click the Back Button to return to the game.

 

When you have selected your lines and selected a stake (or bet) it’s time to play. To activate Dead Man’s Chest click the Spin Button. When the reels stop (and after any free spins, or features, have been played out), any wins will be highlighted and any winnings will be added automatically to your balance.

 

Important Game Symbols

The symbols used by Dead Man’s Chest are as follows. Wild, Scatter, Feature and Progressive represent ‘special’ conditions that invariably mean higher payouts, free plays, or extra game features:

 

 

Wild

A ‘Wild’ is a symbol that can be substituted for any other symbol (except a Scatter, or Progressive) to make the best win possible. Dead Man’s Chest will do this automatically for you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Scatter

A ‘Scatter’ gives you multiple free spins (variable in number) of the reels if 3, or more, Scatter symbols appear anywhere when the reels have stopped.

 

This will trigger the Free Play feature. When this happens you are awarded a multiple of your current stake, no matter what happens during the forthcoming free play period.

 

When free play is activated you will be invited to play a mini game that determines the number of free spins you will be allocated. This mini game plays as follows:

 

When the game starts the number of free spins you will be granted is set to 1. To play the game hit the Spin Button until it is time for free spins to start. Each time you hit Spin a number will appear. This number will either have a Plus (+) sign infront of it, or a Multiplication (x) sign.

 

Depending on the number of free spins will increase, according to the following example:

 

  • If the next spin shows x2 the number of free spins will change to 2.

 

  • If the next spin shows +1 the number of free spins will change to 3.

 

  • If the next spin shows x5 the number of free spins will change to 15.

 

  • If the next spin shows +10 the number of free spins will change to 25.

 

This process continues until the word Start appears in the game. When this happens your allocated number of free spins will play out with the same selected lines and stake amount that were in place when the free spins were won.

 

Notes:

  • Free spins continue playing automatically until they are exhausted.
  • At the end of the free spins period a ‘congratulations screen’ appears, displaying the amount you have won.
  • If you get three or more Scatter symbols in a single spin during the free spin period, a number of extra free spins will be awarded to the total free spins remaining.
  • Extra free spins are possible more than once in the free spin feature.
  • Free spin reels are different to the reels normally used by Dead Man’s Chest. For example, there are no feature symbols or ‘standard’ Wilds (although there are additional super wilds).
  • Auto spins are cancelled while free spins are in progress.

 

Note that Scatters are associated with ‘Super Wilds’. A Super Wild is a Wild that displays a number. The Wild remains in play for that number of further spins. Note that Super Wilds only appear when the free spin feature is being played and will disappear after the last ‘sticky’ spin or the last ‘free’ spin (whichever occurs first).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bonus Feature

A ‘Feature’ is a mini–game available within Dead Man’s Chest. It is activated when 3, or more, feature symbols appear on a win line.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Progressive

A ‘Progressive’ is a Jackpot that accumulates value, or ‘progresses’, as you spin the reels on and on. A Jackpot consists of a fixed minimum amount of money that increases by a percentage of incoming stake amounts.

 

The Jackpot symbol (shown here) is linked to three Progressives, Mini, Midi and Maxi. An amount for each is displayed above the reels. Which Jackpot is won depends upon the number of Jackpot symbols appearing in the win line. For details, see the Paytable.

 

When the Jackpot is won the prize fund is reset to its minimum amount and the process starts again.

 

Important points to note about Jackpots:

  • Jackpots are available for the ‘real play’ version of Dead Man’s Chest only.
  • A minimum stake amount of £0.25 per line is required to qualify for inclusion in a Jackpot game.
  • The seeds (or starting values for the respective Jackpots) are: Mini=100, Midi=1000, Maxi=5000.
  • If the players stake is greater or equal to the minimum qualifying stake then the following contributions will be taken from the stake and added to the Jackpot Mini=1%, Midi=1%, Maxi=1%
  • Winning a Progressive Jackpot neither contributes to, or is affected by the daily cumulative winnings limit.
  • It is not possible for two players to simultaneously win the Jackpot. The Jackpot is locked when it is being won. This means that no other bets will be accepted for it and only one player at a time is able to win it.
  • When two or more players appear to simultaneously trigger the jackpot, the first player will be awarded the jackpot and the others will receive a message warning them that the jackpot was won by other player. The current play is cancelled and the player will have the opportunity to play again after being informed of the new jackpot values.
  • The Wild card Icon will not substitute for a Progressive icon.
  • Contributions to the jackpot come solely from the operator and are not taken from any bets placed by the player.

 

 

Feature Bonus Game

When three or more feature symbols occur on a win line then a Feature Bonus game is triggered.

How to play the Feature Bonus Game

 

With the Feature Bonus Game you cannot lose! It’s just a question of how much you win. How much you win is determined by you original stake amount. Remember that stakes are accepted on a per line basis.

 

When the game starts your win amount is set to x 1. This means that if the game were to finish now (which it will not) you will win an amount equal to your original stake per line.

 

To play the game hit the Spin Button until it is time to Collect. Each time you hit Spin a number will appear. This number will either have a Plus (+) sign infront of it, or a Multiplication (x) sign.

 

Depending on the sign your win amount will increase, according to the following example:

 

If the next spin shows x2 your win amount will change to x2. That is, you will win double your original stake amount per line.

 

If the next spin shows +1 your win amount will change to x3. That is, you will win three times your original stake amount per line.

 

If the next spin shows x5 your win amount will change to x15. That is, you will win 15 times your original stake amount per line.

 

If the next spin shows +10 your win amount will change to x25. That is, you will win 25 times your original stake amount per line.

 

This process continues until the word ‘Collect’ appears in the game. When this happens your balance is automatically increased by the amount you have won.

 

General Rules

This game has a Return to Player of 95.44%. If a player does not qualify for the jackpot their RTP will be 93.41%
