Free Spins and Multipliers

All of the wins during the free spins round will be tripled and any wins where the wild symbol forms part of a winning combination will be subject to a multiplier of times 6.  The free spins round can be reactivated.  Any extra free spins won during this round will be added to the current free spins and players have an infinite number of free spins that can be won.  Most other online slots will cap players at a certain amount of free spins.
