During the free spins a multiplier of 2X, 3X, 4X or 5X is rewarded at random which increases the win.

Conclusion to Locking Archer Slot Review

Pleasantly surprised how fun this games was upon playing it for the review. We did not do the greatest with the locking archer scatter, but the hut scatter hit free spins for us nicely. And the game seemed very generous during our testing helping our bankroll enough to keep the game interesting and fun. Since we play RTG casinos frequently, we likely will play this game again.
