About the Game: Xpander
Xpander is playable on a 7x7 grid, where winnings are calculated on the basis of how many icons are grouped together in a cluster. Players would receive prizes if they manage to land combinations of at least 5 or more of the same symbols. After every winning round, the combo(s) made will be removed from the grid and new symbols will cascade onto the reels, creating more opportunities for new matches. All throughout the game, youll notice that the symbols all possess different values, with some of the lower-paying icons being the fruits (e.g. cherries and watermelons), whereas the higher value symbols are comprised of icons such as the horseshoe and number 7. The best-paying symbol is the diamond, which can pay out up to $4,000 if players manage to hit a match of 15 or more of the same symbol on the highest wager. The starting bet for the game is $0.20, whereas the maximum bet is $50. There is an information button at the bottom left of the page for those whod like to know more about the game.
How to Trigger Xpanders Special Features
Right off the bat, players would notice a small, single-square multiplier overlay that randomly moves about between spins. Any winning matches made involving the tile that the multiplier lands on would be instantly multiplied and awarded to the players. This multiplier can also be expanded or increased whenever certain special symbols appear on the reels. The Double Up! icon would multiply the current multiplier by 2 which can go up to a maximum of 128x. On the other hand, players would need at least 3 grow symbols (signified by a green, four-arrow-headed icon) to expand the multiplier, with the largest multiplier area size being 4x4. Players who manage to expand the multiplier will also be rewarded with a respin, where the multiplier size and value will remain the sticky throughout the bonus round.
Another special feature is the games free spins mode. Players can trigger the free spins by landing 3 FS icons on the reels or choosing to buy the feature from the Buy Bonus button at the bottom left of the screen. Then, theyll be rewarded with 5 free spins, where any expansions or increases to the multiplier will remain sticky throughout the rounds. There are also chances of increasing the number of free spins, which occurs whenever the 1Up icon lands on the reels. Last but not least, there are also wild symbols during the free spins, which can aid players in creating even bigger matches!
