The main feature of the Battlestar Galactica slot machine game are the 3 different game modes that can be activated randomly. The default mode is called the Normal Mode Game. The Normal Mode combinations pay from left to right when the trigger is pulled, coincidentally, there is an Ion Storm Bonus Game where up to 5 reels can become Wilds (all roller positions are occupied by Wild symbols that act as wildcards). The second mode is the Run Mode, when this mode is activated, combinations pay both from the left box to the right and vice versa. During this mode the symbol FLT on reel 3 activates the Jump Bonus Game, in which the symbols Ace, King, Queen, Jack and Ten are removed from the rollers and are replaced by the FLT symbol. The FLT will appear in empty slots as any of the main characters but not the wild or scatter symbols. The last mode is the Fight Game Mode, which is triggered randomly during Run Mode. In this latter mode there is an Extra function Wild, in which up to 5 symbols are transformed into Wilds.
The Battlestar Galactica Wild Symbol, acts as a wildcard, replacing the others, except Scatter, in order to create the highest possible winning combination. The Wild symbol also generates its own winning combination when it appears on a payline: With 2 Wilds you win 4 coins, with 3 Wilds 400 coins, if 4 you win 1000 and finally with 5 Wilds you get 6000. The Wild symbol also activates the Wild Symbol Stack function, this allows the wildn to cover more than one section on the same roller allowing a greater number of possible combinations.
3 or more Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, allows you the following winnings (1500 times your bet with 3 symbols, 3000 times with 4 symbols and 15,000 times the bet with 5 symbols) and it also triggers the Free Spins mode, but only when they appear in Normal Mode or in Fight Mode. During Normal Mode 3 or more Scatters trigger 15 Free Spins with tripled payouts, while in Fight Mode it will trigger 5 in which the symbol Wild becomes Split Wild doubling your winnings.
