The Faust slot machine was created by Greentube with the option to play a free demo. The 5 reel, 10 payline slot can pay you up to 5,000 times the bet per line. The Faust image serves as a wild symbol by substituting basic images and triggers the 10 Free Spins bonus with an expansive random symbol. The prize obtained by a winning spin can be multiplied in the game by double or nothing if you guess the color of a card.

How to play Faust slot

When starting the Faust casino slot machine, the user must establish the number of credits that will be credited to his account. This is done by moving the slider. The minimum value is 0.5 and the maximum is 500. If at the beginning of the game the player chose a sum of less than 500 credits, he can add the rest during a session of the game. This is done in the Pay in section. The total bet per spin is obtained by multiplying two parameters. The first is the number of active lines. It is regulated in the Lines window. The “+” and “-” buttons determine the number from one to ten.

The number of active pay lines is multiplied by the bet on the line. This is displayed in the Bet / Line window. Right there, the bet on the line is determined, which varies from 0.04 to 10. In this way, the minimum bet per spin is equal to 0.04 credits and the maximum to 100.

The stake per spin is displayed in the Bet window. The Last Win window shows the prize that the player received for the last spin. Ordinary symbol combinations give prizes only if they meet certain requirements. The combination must be on an active payline, start from the first reel from the left, and be continuous.

Only in these cases, a combination of identical images will give prizes. The combinations of the Scatter symbols and the special images during the free spins differ from the ordinary symbol combinations. The conditions of their creations are described below.

To spin the reels, the Start or Autoplay button must be pressed. In the first case, a single spin of the reels is executed. Clicking the Autoplay button starts a series of spins, which are carried out one after the other without the participation of the player. To deactivate automatic mode, the Stop button must be pressed. It is worth remembering that during automatic spins the bet cannot be changed.

During the rotation of the reels the Start button changes its appearance and shows two arrows. Pressing the button at this point will cause the reels to stop instantly.

Symbols and prizes in the Faust slot

The reel slot machine has ten symbols. Nine of them are ordinary and one special. The special image plays the role of two traditional special symbols. First, it replaces any standard symbol to create new winning combinations. Second, this image is a symbol that offers free spins. About them we will talk in a separate paragraph.

Third, this special image has characteristics of the Scatter symbol and gives prizes for its combinations. To do this, the player has to get at least three images of Mephistopheles on the reels. For this, you will receive a prize equal to two total bets. Four Scatter symbols offer 10 bets per spin and five give 100.

The ordinary symbols on the Faust machine are divided into two sub-groups. The first is the symbols of the playing card denominations from ten to ace. A minimum of three of these symbols are required in the combination to receive a prize. The payouts for combinations of the symbols ten, checkers or jacks are 5, 25 or 100 bets per line. The ace and the king offer 5, 40 and 150 bets per line.

Thematic symbols create their winning combinations from two symbols, so they have four multipliers:

  • The image of the weights gives 5, 30, 100 and 750 bets per line.
  • The symbol for women has coefficients of 5, 40, 400 and 2000.
  • The Fausto image has multipliers of 10, 100, 1000, and 5000.

Minigame to double prizes

The risk game is available to the user after any winning combination appears on the reels. The only exceptions are the prizes received during automatic rotations, they cannot be multiplied. To go to the risk game you need to click on the Gamble button.

Then the player will see a hidden card and some buttons. The Collect button allows you to collect the current prize at any time during the risk game. The Red and Black buttons are designed for the player to select the possible color of the card.

If the user guesses the color of the card on the screen, the prize for the spin is doubled. If the player’s choice is incorrect, the prize will be canceled. The maximum amount to which the prize can be increased in the risk game is 500 total bets.

Faust Free Spins

If the user gets more than three symbols Scatter on the game screen, a round of free spins starts. For any number of images of Mephistopheles the player receives ten free spins. Before starting the series of free spins, a symbol with special characteristics is randomly determined. This special symbol is also called the Expanding Symbol.

The mechanics of the free spins differ from the usual rotation. Initially, the game screen is closed to the player. When the Start button is clicked, the reels open, and the standard prize calculation takes place.

If special symbols appeared on the game screens, they fill your entire reel and give a separate prize. This prize is the sum of the payouts of all active lines for a certain combination of conventional symbols.

The number of Expanding Symbol must not be less than the minimum number of ordinary symbols to form a winning combination. For example, during standard spins it takes at least three kings to win a prize. So if the king plays the role of Expanding Symbol his images expand only by the number of three, four or five on the game screen.
