Big Bopper: As the substitute symbol in the game, the Big Bopper can replace other symbols in the game to help you complete a winning combo. When that happens, your prize is triple. Note that the Big Bopper can’t replace any of the scatter symbols.
Scatter Symbols: There are five scatter symbols in The Big Bopper and they are simply the letters that spell out BOPPER (B, O, P, E, and R). When they appear, scatter wins get added to line wins and are then added to All Ways Pays wins.
How to get to the Bonus Feature
Spelling out BOPPER on the screen in order from left to right won’t just get the music going. It’ll also bop you directly into the free games round where the potential to win up to 45 free games and big prize multipliers is waiting.
How to play the Bonus Feature
The Bonus Features (three of them actually) are easy to play. Essentially, when you enter the bonus round, you’ll get to spin for free. How many times? That depends on which bonus round you’re playing.
Chantilly Lace gets you up to 45 free games with 10x payouts. The Big Bopper Instant Win feature game gets you spins worth as much as 250x your bet. And the White Lightnin’ bonus feature gives you game after game after game until the music stops.
There aren’t a lot of rules to follow in The Big Bopper. The main rule you need to know about is that the substitute symbol, while wild for the most part, can sub in for the scatter symbol. So if a scatter symbol hits and you need an extra to fill a winning combination, the substitute symbol won’t be able to help. If you need clarifications on the rules or you require information on which symbols pay out the most, click the Help icon during the game at any time between spins.
