When you play Alien Robots, you get to chose between having traditional paylines or being able to win in 243 different ways.
If you chose to play with traditional paylines, you get to select how many to activate (bet on), from 1 to 30. You can only win on active paylines. You also get to select how many coins to bet per active payline: 1 coin, 2 coins, 3 coins, 4 coins, or 5 coins. The highest possible win on a single payline is 10,000 coins.
If you chose to play with 243 winways, a so called bet multiplier will become active, and it is a 60x bet multiplier. This means that the smallest possible bet is €0.01 coin value x 1 coin x 60 bet multiplier = €0.60 per spin. The largest possible bet is €0.50 coin value x 5 coins x 60 bet multiplier = €150. The largest individual win is 1,500 coins.

Free spins mode
Your key to the free spins mode on Alien Robots is the spaceship (flying saucer), which is a scatter symbol. You need to get at least three scatters, any where on the reels, to start free spins mode.
3 scatters = 10 free spins
4 scatters = 20 free spins
5 scatters = 50 free spins
When in free spins mode, the wild symbol is extra powerful. When the wild symbol helps form a winning combo, it will expand and cover the whole reel. Then, the other reels will spin again, giving you a new chance to win.
It is possible to trigger free spins mode while in free spins mode.
