As with all of the 243 ways to win slots, the wagers are not based on a stake per payline basis. So, in Loose Cannon, coin values range from 0.01 up to 1.00, and a total of between 1 and 5 coins per spin can be staked. This gives the Loose Cannon slot a minimum floor bet of just 0.30 per spin, and a maximum ceiling bet of 150.00 per spin.
The wild symbol is the pirate ship, and if the player lands it on the third reel, they will pick up a stacked wild. Cannon balls can then be fired from the left and right of the central wild to turn up to 15 symbols, wild at any one time.
The wild substitutes itself for all icons, with the exception of the scatter icon. The scatter is the compass icon. When it appears on the first, third and fifth reels, it will trigger a free spins bonus round. Free spins can be retriggered during this round, and wins pay from left to right as well as right to left. The free spins round consists of an original 15 free games.
