HOW TO PLAY CANNONADE SLOTS
The base gameplay is different in some ways than a regular online slot machine, so read carefully.
The basic gist is the same as with any one-armed bandit. You open up the game, set the stake per spin at the bottom of the screen, and hit spin. The goal is to match 3 or more symbols on at least 3 connected reels, starting with the leftmost reel. It doesn’t matter which row the symbols appear on– as long as you hit at least three on adjacent reels, you win.
However, the first thing you’ll notice about Cannonade! by Yggdrasil is the irregular number of rows. Basically, the top-right half of the grid is currently unavailable.
However, every time you make a winning line, the winning symbols are locked into place. Then, a number of blockers equal to the number of winning symbols are cleared. This makes the playing field bigger and substantially increases your chances of winning on subsequent spins.
If more winning symbols appear on the respin, the same thing happens. They’re locked in place and the same number of blockers is removed, and then the reels spin again. You can continue this streak for as long as you keep hitting winning symbols, or until the board is completely full. All of this reminds us of Hold&Win features available in other games.
Once the streak ends, though, the blockers return to their initial positions.
