Wooden Boy Guide
Wooden Boy was a mischievous puppet who had trouble following directions and doing the right thing. He got himself, and his beloved Geppetto, into all kinds of trouble as he ran around looking for some way to become a real boy. And, as you’ll remember, his nose grew longer with each lie he told. So we’ll leave you with a simple truth – this slot game is a good, honest way to have some fun and maybe win a few bucks.
Wooden Boy features 20 lines of action and bets from 5 cents to $50 per line, plus a Random Progressive Jackpot.
How to Play Wooden Boy
Hold on to your nose and get the adventure started by choosing how many lines to play (from 1-20), selecting a bet per line amount (from .05 to $50) then hitting “Spin”.
Use the up and down arrows to adjust the amount you wish to bet per line – from 5 cents to $50 per line. Don’t forget that this bet carries over into the free spins when you win a bonus game.
Use the up and down arrows to choose how many lines you want to play per spin.
Once you’ve selected your bet and the number of lines you want to play, just hit “Spin”.
There are two ways to play this casino game. You can hit “Spin” every time yourself, or you can use the “Autoplay” function. If you’d prefer not to do all the work yourself, just hit “Autoplay” and you’ll see a menu where you can select the number of spins, and when you want the Autoplay feature to stop.
Any time you need help in the game, just select the “Help” button. It will bring up details about winning combinations, complete game rules and bonus round information.

The story behind the game
Pinocchio first poked his nose into popular culture in 1883, in a book called, appropriately enough, The Adventures of Pinocchio. Of course since then he’s appeared in everything from movies to lunch boxes. But it was that original story that gave us all the classic stuff – the growing nose, telling lies and wanting to be a real boy. Interestingly, that original story also features all kinds of crazy stuff most of us have forgotten, like an enormous serpent that tries to munch the little puppet, but then laughs so hard at the panicky Pinocchio, he dies from a burst artery. If you’re sitting there saying “I remember that part of the story”, you better go look in the mirror, because I bet your nose is about a foot long by now.
Scatter Symbol: Symbols that award prizes no matter where they land on the reels.
Random Progressive Jackpot: A jackpot that is both awarded randomly, rather than when you get a specific symbol or symbols when you spin, and that increases in value until it’s won.
Autoplay: Pre-setting your slot machine with a set number of automatic spins. This way you don’t have to hit the “Spin” button each time you want to play.
Feature/Bonus game: This means a number of spins you get to play for free, but where you still get to keep anything you win.
