What Is Chain Reactors?

In Chain Reactors you are paid out for chains of animated matching symbols similar to traditional puzzle games. Payouts vary between symbols and the larger the chain the bigger the payout. There are also 3 progressive jackpots to be won by achieving particular chains.

How To Play Chain Reactors

The payouts for achieving chains of different size and symbols are shown in the left of the game screen. A chain is any combination of 5 or more matching symbols adjacent either horizontally or vertically. Matching symbols that are adjacent diagonally will not chain together. Simply choose your starting stake and press BET to begin.

Symbols will fall from the top of the screen and settle in 5 rows each with 5 symbols. Where a chain occurs the symbols will react and explode, disappearing from the screen. Existing symbols and new symbols will fall to take their place. Reactions will continue automatically until no more chains occur.

You are paid out for each chain that occurs. A chain must include a minimum of 5 matching symbols but bigger chains are possible and payouts increase with the number of symbols in a chain. Your accumulated winnings are automatically added to your account.


Within Chain Reactors there are 3 different progressive jackpots to be won. Jackpots are won for achieving a chain with a particular symbol – Goldie. The mini jackpot is paid for a 5-symbol chain, the midi for 6 symbols and the maxi for matching 7 symbols or more. The current level for each jackpot is shown in the top left of the game screen.
