Winning totems explode, thereby creating space for newly fetched symbols that join the locked non-winning symbols. Back-to-back wins progressively increase the win multipliers, situated along the bottom. Winless spins reset the win multiplier to X1 that (in the regular games) then changes to 2X after the first win; the second back-to-back changes it to X3, while the third back-to-back win activates the maximum X5 win multiplier.
Three Mayan masks prompt the free games that are set in a flower garden. In the free games, the lowest (reset to) 3X win multiplier changes to X6 after the first win; the second back-to-back changes it to 9X, while the third back-to-back win activates the maximum 15X win multiplier. Rook’s Revenge has a $2330000.00 non-progressive jackpot.
