All Features on Samarkand’s Gold Video Slot by Endorphina!

  • Wild Symbol: You’ll see the wild, which is a yellow icon symbolising the entrance to the city of Samarkland. This symbol can substitute as a wildcard for any of the 11 regular symbols.
  • Scatter multiplier: The gold coin scatter will pay out 2x, 10x or 20x your spin bet for landing 3, 4 or 5 anywhere in view on the reels.
  • Free Spins Bonus: For 8, 15 or 20 free spins, the scatter will need to land anywhere in view 3, 4 or 5 times, respectively.
  • Wild Multiplier Free Spins: During the free spins bonus, wild symbols that help to complete a symbol combination win will turn into a multiplier wild. The multiplier will increase the symbol combination win by 2x or 3x. If there are multiple wilds, then your combination wins will benefit from all wild multipliers by up to a maximum of 27x the win amount.
  • Re-Trigger Free Spins: Land 2, 3, 4 or 5 scatters during the free spins for an additional 5, 8, 15 or 20 free spins.
