The Slots base game is home to mystery map symbols, upon any of these landing on the game grid you'll be awarded a series of respins, this will continue for as long as at least one of these mystery map symbol are present on the reels.

The goal being to land as many of these as possible or align with the characters that are already in play creating a constant stream of wins. This happened with some frequency during our time with the game and is how we got the vast majority of our wins.
