Multiplier symbols – Special icons to increase wins in online slots for real money

How common is the multiplier symbol?

Despite the wide popularity and commonality of bonus multipliers in slots games, the bonus multiplier symbol per se remains something of a rare bird. We’d really like to see the multiplier symbol included in well more 5-reel slots.

But aren’t a lot of scatter symbols actually multiplier symbols?
