How to Play Shimmering Woods Slots
Before spinning the reels, you need to set your total bet per spin using the controls underneath the reels and it can be anything from 0.20 up to 100. You then just need to click on the spin button to set the reels going. You can also use the auto play function to set up to 100 spins in motion complete with stop conditions.
In order to win payouts you need to land enough matching symbols on consecutive reels starting from the leftmost reel. There are four high value symbols, gemstones coloured purple, green, blue and red. The lower value symbols are the royals 10, J, Q, K, and A.
The ‘W’ diamond is the wild symbol and it will substitute for all the other symbols, except for the scatter symbol, to help and form winning combinations. The scatter symbol is a fiery gemstone.

At the start of each spin, a standard symbol is picked at random to become a splitting symbol. All instances of the splitting symbol that appear on the spin then split into two. This will increase the number of ways to win up to a maximum of 7776.
The slot features cascading reels. This means that every time a win lands on the reels, after the payout, the winning symbols are removed to allow more to fall from above. If this forms a win, then the process will repeat itself. Better yet, each successive win cascade will increase the payout multiplier by x1 and it does not reset until a win fails to land.
The Shimmer Feature begins when three or more scatter symbols land. The scatter symbols may then split and the more there are, the better the potential rewards in the free spins. The more scatters, the more free spins and splitting symbols:
- 3 Scatter Symbols – 10 free spins and 1 extra splitting symbol
- 4 Scatter Symbols – 13 free spins and 2 extra splitting symbols
- 5 Scatter Symbols – 16 free spins and 3 extra splitting symbols
- 6 Scatter Symbols – 19 free spins and 4 extra splitting symbols
Theoretically, all of the symbols could become splitting symbols during the free spins, which would result in thousands of ways to win. Better yet, you can also retrigger the free spins:
- 3 Scatter Symbols – 3 extra free spins and 1 extra splitting symbol
- 4 Scatter Symbols – 6 extra free spins and 2 extra splitting symbols
- 5 Scatter Symbols – 9 extra free spins and 3 extra splitting symbols
- 6 Scatter Symbols – 12 extra free spins and 4 extra splitting symbols
