Scatter symbols trigger 10, 15 or 20 Free Games respectively with the Full Moon Bonus. This allows extra Wilds to land on reels 2, 3 or 4 to increase the chances of a win.
Finally, players can dance with the undead in Tales of Darkness Break of Dawn as the vampire duo in this slot holds the key to untold riches across 5 reels and 50 win lines. Both vampires are Wild symbols that substitute normal symbols to increase winning chances.
Three or more Scatter symbols on the reels trigger 15 Free Games with the Break of Dawn Bonus. This bonus features three different Wild symbols that have the ability to move across the reels in various directions to improve the chances of winning.

Online casino operator Casumo has released a new exclusive live casino game to its players.
Developed by the operator’s in-house studio, Topwheel Treasures is a game of chance played using a vertical wheel, spun by a live casino host. Players can play Topwheel Treasures from a minimum bet of 10 cents up to a maximum bet of €2,500 per game round.
Topwheel Treasures is a live wheel game, similar to a Money Wheel, Wheel of Fortune, Dream Catcher or Super Wheel game.
In the game, a large wheel with 54 equal segments rotates vertically, while a fixed pointer marks the spot where the wheel stops. 52 of these segments are numbered 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 40, while 2 segments are marked as multipliers x2 and x7. The objective of the game is to guess on which number the wheel will stop.
If the wheel stops on a multiplier, then all the bets will remain in place while the host spins the wheel again. Consecutive multipliers are unlimited, subject to the default maximum payout which is €500,000.
