The game consists of 3 reels and 5 paylines. When the game is played for real money the player can bet on all 5 paylines, thereby increasing his chances of getting a high payout. For every coin that is bet, a new payline is enabled. The payout depends on the coin size that has been used per payline. The coin sizes vary from $0.25, $0.50, $1, $2 to a maximum of $5.
Zany Zebra consists of symbols of sevens, 1-bar, 2-bar, 3-bar, bells and a zebra symbol. The zebra is a wild symbol in this game and can replace any other symbol on the reel to create the winning combination.
Players are given the option of selecting the autoplay feature or deciding to play manually. With autoplay, one can select the number of spins, coin size and then sit back and relax while the machine spins automatically.
When the reels stop spinning and the player gets 3 symbols of seven, it means he has won 300 coins, 3 bells on the reels mean 200 coins, 3 x 3-bar symbols denote 100 coins, 3 x 2-bar symbols is 40 coins, 3 x 1-bar symbols mean 10 coins and any 3 miscellaneous symbols give the player 5 coins. When the total number of coins won is multiplied with the number of credits bet on an enabled payline, it gives the player the winning amount.
If a player selects a coin size of 2 credits and bets on 3 paylines, the total bet placed would be 3 coins multiplied by 2 credits which are equal to 6 credits. When the reels stop spinning and the player gets 3 x 2-bar symbols on his enabled payline then the payout would be 40 coins. The 40 coins multiplied with 2 credits equals to 80 credits. This would be the winning payout.
Every payline has a different winning amount; so, if the player bets on only 1 payline and gets 3 zebra symbols the highest return he would get is 1000 coins, 2000 coins when 2 paylines are enabled and so forth. The jackpot value is 6000 coins when the player gets 3 zebra symbols on any enabled payline with the maximum value of every coin bet being $5.
