Some games are designed to offer the opportunity to get two bonuses. It’s a pretty rare circumstance, but it can certainly happen. So what actually happens when that moment occurs?

On your cruise you played a game called “Wonder 4 Jackpot” (4 games on screen) and I noticed you got the free games. What would happen if you got free games on two separate games?…unlikely I know.

Mark N.

On games like Wonder 4, each game effectively works independently, so if you get bonuses on two different sets of reels, you’ll play each bonus out one at a time. You’ve effectively triggered two free game bonuses, and it goes through them in turn.

This is also true if you managed the unusual situation of, say, getting six hats and three buzz saws on Huff N’ More Puff, or six balls and three bonus symbols on Dragon Link. The game will play out each bonus in turn (although here they’re of course separate bonus types, so it makes sense you’d play each out one at a time).

Now, this isn’t necessarily universal, as it will ultimately depend on the game’s design. An old WMS series called Super Multi Times Pay had four sets of reels, and on those games getting the bonus on multiple reel sets triggered a single bonus, but more reels sets triggering the bonus would enhance the bonus, such as with a higher multiplier.

But that made sense for that game because the main reel set would upgrade the other three, so in a sense they were working together in some way, whereas on Wonder 4 each set of reels was contained to themselves.

So on Wonder 4, that’s the approach – if you get multiple bonuses, it will work through each one at a time. On the Wonder 4 Jackpots version, that always starts with a wheel spin (which could award Super Free Games or a progressive jackpot), before rolling into the bonus itself.
