The Sting Poker Bonus Features
Go wild for the honey stick!
The expanding honey stick wild symbol, when it appears on your screen, drips the honey down and turns all the symbols immediately below it into wilds.
These can then substitute one matching symbol group to create a winning combination. Any four or more connected matching symbols, including the substituted wild symbol, may pay as per the paytable.
