Understanding the ways of the stars is not a simple mission. That is probably why the rules are a bit complicated. Do not worry, you will understand everything shortly. The ELK Studios title is played on 6 reels. It seems as if the symbols appear as balls that drop into a certain pattern. Players begin with 4 rows and 4,096 ways to win.

Thanks to the Avalanche feature, all winning symbols explode from the reels. New icons do not appear until all the possible winning combinations are collected from the present symbols. Once that happens, new symbols will fill the blanks, and add one more row, up to 8 in total. For this to occur, you will a decent number of successive Avalanches. The max reel grid offers 262,144 ways to win.
The numbers that appear on the reels represent multipliers. In order to be activated, multipliers need to reach the leftmost reel. After that, the multiplier turns Wild and gives you a boosted win. If a new multiplier reaches the first reel during the process, it will be added to the current active multiplier of the round.
The Bonus Scatter also needs to reach the first reel so as to trigger the Free Drops feature. Players get 7 free drops, with the current multiplier active at the beginning. To retrigger the feature, you just need to repeat the process and make another Scatter reach Reel 1.
Each new free drop starts with 4 rows. During free drops, the multiplier is persistent, it does not reset after a non-winning drop. Bonus symbols and multiplier symbols that reach the bottom row on reels 2-6 will be removed and dropped again on the grid, but this time a bit closer to the first reel.
