Getting Started

Press the ‘Stake Up’ and ‘Stake Down’ buttons to choose a stake per line between 5p and £10.
Press the ‘Select Lines’ button to choose how many lines (1 to 9) you would like to play. Your selected stake per line will be multiplied by the number of lines you choose to play.
The total amount you have staked will be shown in the TOTAL STAKE box at the bottom right of the screen.
A maximum of £90 total bet can be placed on any one game.
Click on the ‘Paytable’ button to view the paytable, which shows the potential winnings for each reel combination, scatters, bonuses etc.

How to play

Press ‘Play’ to start the game.
The reels will spin and eventually stop at random.
If the combination of symbols appearing on the reels forms a line of 3, 4 or 5 matching symbols on one of the lines you selected to play, you win. Any winning lines you have will be highlighted and your winnings will be credited to your account balance.
Matching 2 or more Wild symbols will qualify for a winning payout.

Track bonus game and progressive jackpot

The Track Bonus Game is triggered by 3, 4 or 5 Medal symbols appearing on the reels. With 3 bronze medals, you will win entry to the bonus game to play for the bronze jackpot. With 4 silver medals, you play the bonus for the silver jackpot and with 5 gold medals, you can play for the gold jackpot. 4 Medals in a line will automatically all turn silver and 5 will automatically turn gold.
There is no direct win attached to the Medal Symbol – only entry to the bonus game, which itself guarantees a bonus win.
When the game enters the bonus round, you will see a running track with 3 lanes. The track is divided into segments, each with either an arrow to allow you to progress to the next lane, or with a multiplier value that will form your bonus win. Bonus wins are calculated using the multiplier and your stake per line.
The game starts in the outside lane, and you have to make it to the inside lane to win the jackpot. If you are lucky, you’ll land on an arrow, which will take you in to the next lane. Similarly, when you are in the middle lane, if you land on an arrow you will enter the inside lane and play for the jackpot.
When you enter the bonus game, press ‘Start’ to start the game. The segments around the track will flash one by one to represent an athlete running around the track, and eventually will slow to a stop on one of the segments. If it lands on a multiplier, you win that multiplier and the game will return to the main screen after adding your winnings to your balance. If you land on an arrow, the game will continue “running” around the middle lane automatically. Again, if you land on a multiplier, your winnings will be added to your balance and the bonus game ends, and if you land on an arrow, the game will continue running on the inside lane.
Once you get to the inside lane, you will either win a multiplier or, if you land on the jackpot segment, you will win the jackpot.
Please bear in mind that when you are playing the game in demo mode, all winnings including the jackpot are only play money!
In the event of a communication error after a progressive win result has been determined and before it has been displayed on screen, the win amount will automatically be transferred to the player’s account.
In the event of the jackpot being won, other players playing the game simultaneously will be informed of the new jackpot value and offered the option to void the present bet. This is only relevant if the other players start the game within 1 second of the jackpot being won.
Whilst the game is live the jackpot can only be terminated if the value of the jackpot is zero. If the game is removed the outstanding pool amount can be transferred to another jackpot or retained by the operator.
The administration of the jackpot is at the discretion of William Hill.

In-reel Javelin bonus game

If 3, 4 or 5 Javelin Thrower symbols appear as a scatter anywhere on the reels, you will enter the In-Reels ‘Javelin’ Bonus game.
According to whether you had 3, 4 or 5 Javelin Thrower symbols, you will get 3, 4 or 5 throws, with each throw awarding a bonus win.
The athletes will throw their javelins one at a time and the further they throw, the greater your win will be.
The Javelin Bonus game is played out automatically as soon as 3, 4 or 5 Javelin Thrower symbols are spun in on the reels.
If you want to skip to the end without watching each throw, pressing ‘Play’ once will skip to the results and a summary of your winnings. Press ‘Play’ once again to start a new spin.

In-reel Off The Blocks bonus game

If 3, 4 or 5 Sprinter symbols appear as a scatter anywhere on the reels, you will enter the ‘Off The Blocks’ Bonus game.
According to whether you had 3, 4 or 5 symbols, there will be 3, 4 or 5 athletes taking part in a race.
You must choose one of the athletes to be first to leave the starting blocks by clicking on one of the Sprinter symbols.
You will be awarded a bonus win according to how quick off the blocks your chosen athlete is – so if your selected athlete is first to leave the starting blocks, you will win more, but you are guaranteed a win no matter how fast he is.
Once you select an athlete, watch carefully to see who is fastest off the blocks.
The bonus prizes are higher the more sprinters there are in the race, so 5 Sprinter symbols will pay out a higher bonus win than 4 or 3.

Auto Play

By selecting ‘Auto Play’ you can choose to play up to 25 spins automatically, one after the other.
Select your stake and the number of lines you wish to play, then press the ‘Auto Play’ button to select the number of ‘Auto Play’ spins you want before clicking the ‘Play’ button.
You can stop Auto Play from continuing onto the next spin by clicking the ‘Stop Auto Play’ button whenever it appears briefly on screen between hands as shown here.
While in AutoPlay, any wins will be collected automatically.
AutoPlay will be turned off if you gain access into the Track Bonus game or the Off The Blocks bonus. If you win access to the Javelin Bonus game, the game will play out as usual and Autoplay will continue.
