Game symbols and prizes Drone Wars

Different symbols in the Drone Wars game bring different rewards. The user can familiarize himself with the prizes for the combinations by opening the prize table by clicking the View Pays button on the control panel. On the second page, there are all the symbols and the coefficients of the combinations.

The coefficient is a multiplier of the bet per line. This number remains fixed. Since the coefficient is fixed, only the bet on the line affects the amount of the prize, the higher it is, the greater the prize. Ordinary symbols on an active payline give the following coefficients:

  • The 10 gives x2, x5, x25, and x100 for two, three, four, or five consecutive images, respectively.
  • The J gives x10, x25, and x100 times 3, 4, and 5 images, respectively.
  • The Q gives x10, x50 and x150.
  • The K gives x15, x50, and x150.
  • The A gives x15, x75, and x150.
  • Blaster, offers x15, x75 and x250.
  • The spaceship gives x20, x100 and x500.
  • Men with helmets give x20, x250 and x750.
  • The blue drone gives x50, x500 and x1000.

In addition to the ordinary symbols in the game there are special symbols. The Wild symbol is a drone with pink hexagons. This image forms combinations of two, three, four or five images and gives rewards of 2, 100, 750 and 1000 multipliers, respectively. Moreover, it can also replace missing images in possible ordinary symbol combinations. Therefore, the probability of winning sequences increases.

The scatter is a red funnel and is not tied to pay lines and reels. Three of these images in any cell on the game screen are enough to win a prize. The scatter symbol gives 5, 10 and 50 multipliers of the total bet by three, four or five images, respectively. Another function of the funnel is to start the bonus game Drone Wars Battle Plan.

Free spins and bonus game

When at least three images scatter appear on the screen, an additional window opens with the bonus game Drone Wars Battle Plan. In it, the user selects one of the options:

  • Space Attack, a series of free spins.
  • Planetary Assault, a bonus level.

The Space Attack bonus launches five free spins. During the free spins the active lines are the ones that were assigned during the main game. The bet is also unchanged. The free spins series has additional benefits:

  • After each rotation, a random symbol transforms into Wild on the game screen.
  • Three or more symbols scatter, add free spins.

The Planetary Assault bonus is a mini-game where the user destroys the enemy drone base. By clicking on the enemy, the player destroys the drones and releases the prizes. Some enemies can attack in response. The player’s drone has four shields. The bonus game ends when all shields are destroyed. If up to this point the player was able to destroy twenty enemy drones, he will receive a reward equal to 50 total bets.

During the bonus round the user does not spend a coin in the account to try to get the prize from the rotations. However, thanks to the features described, you can receive prizes that exceed the winnings of the main game.
