Game Type

Line Bet
Displays current bet per line shown in currency. Click the left arrow (with a minus sign) to decrease bet per line. Click the right arrow (with a plus sign) to increase bet per line. Clicking the left and right arrows does not necessarily decrease or increase your line bet in a linear fashion. Rather, your line bet decreases or increases at preset increments which represent the most popular bet amounts.

Spin
Click to spin the reels and submit your bet.

Lines
Controls and changes the number of paylines played. The LINES box displays the current number of paylines played. Click the left arrow (minus sign) to decrease number of paylines played. Click the right arrow (plus sign) to increase number of paylines played. Choose between 1, 5, 9, 15 or 30 paylines.

Auto Spin
Auto Spin plays the game automatically for a given number of games at the current number of lines and line bet. Once you have selected your desired number of lines and line bet, click AUTO SPIN and choose how many games you want to play. Auto Spin will keep playing the specified number of games until you click the STOP button, you trigger a Bonus, or your balance is insufficient to spin again.


Split Symbols™ Feature
In Noah's Ark™, each animal symbol comes in two varieties: single symbols and double symbols. Single symbols have one animal on them. Double symbols, which use the Split Symbols™ feature, have two of the same animal on them. There are single and double versions of each animal on every reel. Winning outcomes are based on the number of matching animals on a payline (from left to right), not just the number of matching symbols. Enjoy wins by getting as few as 3 matching animals and as many as 10 matching animals for huge wins. Similarly, you can win a 3-symbol pay or even a 4-symbol pay on just the first two reels.

This lucrative Split Symbols™ feature is enhanced by the Noah's ArkLogo symbol. The Noah's ArkLogo symbol is wild and can substitute for the highest-paying animal symbol or highest-paying royal symbol that completes a win. When substituting for an animal symbol, Noah's ArkLogo symbols are always evaluated using the Split Symbols™ feature - making these wild symbols extremely valuable.


Raining Free Spins Bonus
Get 5 or 6 doves anywhere on reels 2, 3, or 4 to trigger the Raining Free Spins Bonus. Just like the other animal symbols, doves appear either as single symbols or double symbols which use the Split Symbols™ feature. Two Double Dove symbols and one Single Dove symbol equal 5 doves. Three Double Dove symbols equal 6 doves.

More doves trigger more free spins. Get 5 doves and win 5 free spins. Get 6 doves and win 10 free spins. (Get 4 doves and win a scatter award. See paytable for details.) These Free Spin Bonus reels are extraordinarily rich - several times richer than the main game reels.
