What are the special features of Critter Pop?

There are a couple of special features to be aware of when playing Critter Pop, including free spins and PopWins.

Free spins

The main bonus feature in Critter Pop is the free spins bonus round, which is triggered when three or more scatter symbols land during the base game. Before the free spins round starts, a Rewards Reel is revealed, bringing with it the chance to win a range of rewards, including extra free spins, a higher starting win multiplier, random 2x2 or 3x3 symbols, random wild symbols and other multipliers, which will be applied to your free spins.

During the free spins round, other features kick in, such as the reels dropping down to the lowest reel height achieved on the current spin. If all the reels end up being eight symbols high, then two further free spins are awarded. However across the entire bonus round players can see an increasing multiplier that starts from x1 by default (can be x2 or x3 if won on the Reward Reel) and grows by +1 with each win. After all reels reach the maximum height that increment grows to +2 for each win, which is an entirely different situation than just "applying an x2 multiplier


When a winning line lands, a symbol will ‘pop’ off the grid to be replaced with two new symbols, increasing the ways to win and the reel height. If a new win is triggered, this feature repeats again and again as long as new wins are formed. Reels can increase up to six positions in the base game and up to eight in the free spins round, increasing the ways to win up to 65,536. When the reels hit their height limit, popped symbols are replaced by one new symbol instead of two.
