There is a wide betting range in the game with a minimum coin size of NZD $0.09 and a maximum coin size of NZD $22.50 with a total number of 40 coins able to be bet on each spin. This makes the game accessible to players, regardless of the size of their bankroll. The symbols in the game include: 

High paying symbols: 

  • Five different acrobats performing different tricks and represented by different colours – red, yellow, green, blue and purple, with the red fire-eating acrobat representing the highest paying symbol. The five main acrobats are named: The Inferno Lord, The Invisible Dagger, The Jade Princess, The Giant Tank and The Purple Maiden. 

Low paying symbols: 

  • Brightly coloured high paying card values – A, K, Q, J and 10 in red, orange, yellow, green and blue. 

Special Symbols: 

  • Wild symbol – The Six Acrobats game logo is the wild symbol and it substitutes for all other symbols, except the yellow and white acrobat (the Golden Queen) scatter symbol, to complete a winning combination. A wild symbol contributing to a win in the base game, multiplies the win by 5X and a wild symbol in the free spins round, multiplies the win by 25X. 
  • Scatter symbol – Guanyin – the Golden Queen, and the sixth acrobat, is the scatter symbol and two of these anywhere on the reels offers a payout. It is also the key to triggering the free spins bonus round.
