Wild symbol that is also a 2x multiplier

The lion is a wild symbol that can substitute for any of the regular symbols, but not for the monkey since that is a scatter symbol.

When the lion helps form a coin winning combo by acting as a wild, the coin win is doubled.

Free spins with 3x win multiplier

The monkey is a scatter symbol and your key to free spins. You need a minimum of three monkeys, anywhere on the reels, to be awarded 15 free spins. During free spins, all coin wins are tripled.

The bonus game where progressive jackpots can be won

There is no bonus symbol that triggers the bonus game. Instead, the bonus game is triggered randomly, regardless of the symbols on the reels.

During the bonus game, you get to spin a wheel-of-fortune with 20 fields. Ten of the fields have zebra tracks, six have giraffe tracks, three have elephant tracks, and one field has lion tracks. What you win depends on the field in which the wheel stops.

Any of the zebra fields: Mega Moolah Mini Jackpot

Any of the giraffe fields: Mega Moolah Minor Jackpot

Any of the elephant fields: Mega Moolah Major Jackpot

The lion field: The Mega Moolah Mega Jackpot
