The koala bear is the wild symbol, it can land on reels two, three and four, and it will substitute for all of the other symbols, except for the scatter symbol, to help and form winning combinations.
The scatter symbol is some red berries and leaves, not only does it award scatter payouts, but it is key to one of the bonus features.
Every time that a koala wild symbol lands on the reels, after the wins have been paid, the koala will climb to the top of its reel and be collected on the tree trunk above it. Once you have collected four koala bears above a reel, they will drop down over the reel on the next spin before the wins are paid. If you are lucky then multiple reels can fall on the same spin as long as they have all collected four wild koalas.
If you land three, four or five scatter symbols anywhere on the reels then you will win 10, 15 or 25 free spins respectively. Not only can the free spins be retriggered indefinitely, but the wild koala drop feature is still active during them, so there is the chance of huge winnings.
Fear the Bear has a top payout of 50 times the total bet for landing five scatter symbol on the reels, while four scatters pays 20 times the total bet and three scatters pays 5 times the total bet. Landing five bird symbols pays 125 times the line bet, five moles pays 100 times the line bet, five platypuses pays 75 times the line bet, five lizards pays 50 times the line bet and five frogs pays 40 times the line bet. A, K and Q can all payout up to 30 times the line bet while J, 10 and 9 can all payout 25 times the line bet.
