Four by Four

Introduction

This grid game, called Four by Four, has 8 vertical and horizontal grids, a wild symbols and two additional features, called free game and nudge. The player needs to get the winning string on the payline by spinning the reels. How much he earns will be directly linked to the symbols used in the winning string.

How to Play

The size of the coins is chosen using down and up keys.
The game starts by pressing play.
If there is a winning string, the symbols vanish after a player has received the payout. Then other symbols fill in their place. This rule also applies after a nudge. The player receives the amount that is shown in the win field.
The type of string that appears when the lines which are horizontal end up scrolling influences the amount won.
The paytable displays the multiplier a player has won, per every string possible.
The win is determined by multiplying the amount staked with the multiplier that a player has won.
The player needs to have 4 symbols in a row on the payline, regardless if they are vertical or horizontal. These symbols need to be the same.
When a winning string is formed, a player gets a multiplier.

Features

Star

This symbol can be used to replace all other symbols, but for the symbols named bonus nudge and free play. When there are several of them on the line, the winning string is formed.
If there are 4 symbols of the star, the entire bet is multiplied with 5.
All winning strings are paid out. If there are several of winning strings on one payline, the player receives the payments from each of them.

Nudge

If there are 4 scattered symbols of the bonus nudge, this feature is enabled where a player can bump the payline, so that the symbol can be shown. A player is rewarded with 4 nudges. If a winning string has one of the nudges, then a player is paid, but loses the right to use other nudges.
This feature has an advantage over the free play.
