Jason’s Quest won’t be all plain sailing. Far from it. He has to go up against many different mythological creatures in order to get to the Golden Fleece. And fortunately, there are some Genesis special features to assist him with this. For example, you will first get to see a wild icon upon the reels. This can show up and substitute for any other icon in view, and it is present in the shape of a nymph girl. The only icon this one cannot stand in for is the game’s scatter offering
. And if you manage to bring five of the wild icon into view on a winning bet line, you will receive 1,000 times your wager as a pay out.
As far as the scatter symbol goes, this one can be seen in the form of the Golden Fleece itself. Scatter icons have the unique ability to show up in any location and still provide you with a reward. For example, five of them in view anywhere will pay out 50 times your overall wager.
During gameplay, you will also collect gems. These go on to unlock different feature levels for you to play. The collection occurs randomly after any spin and any feature trigger also provides a single gem. At Level 1, three or more scatter symbols will activate the Cyclops Free Spin feature. This rewards you with a total of 10 freespins of the reels. All wins that occur during these freespins will provide you with a double multiplier on top. And three or more scatter icons in view during this round will provide an additional 10 freespins to you.
Once you collect 15 gemstones, you will advance to Level 2. This then sees you have the ability to trigger either the Cyclops Freespins or Hydra Bonus Feature from three or more scatters. Selecting the freespins round will provide you with 15 freespins in total and triple multipliers. However, if you choose the Hydra Feature, this present a Hydra monster on screen. You will receive three attacks on the Hydra’s heads, of which there are five. Each attack will reveal either a monetary reward or a multiplier. The latter of these will multiply the feature win by times five.
Finally, collecting 30 gems will advance you on to Level 3. Again, three or more scatter symbols appearing will allow you to select from the Cyclops Freespins, the Hydra Feature or the Skeleton Bonus. The first provides you with eight freespins complete with triple multipliers. Every spin will also have extra wild icons upon its reels of between one and 15! The Hydra Feature is basically the same, except for the fact that the multiplier can be anywhere up to times 10. The Skeleton Bonus will provide you with eight freespins also, with special skeleton symbols showing up on the reels. Any time this one does appear, it prompts you to pick one of three shields. This will then reveal a credit award or a standard game symbol. If you reveal the latter, all skeleton icons on the reels will find themselves replaced by this symbol.
