Bears are on the loose in this wildlife-themed offering from Novomatic. The slot offers 5 reels, 40 paylines, and a host of interesting game features.

Gameplay begins with setting your bets. You may start by clicking on the Lines +/- tabs to set the number of lines you want to play. You may then click on the Bet/Line +/- tabs to set the amount you want to wager per line. To set the reels into motion, click on the Start tab at the rightmost end of the control panel. If you want the reels to spin automatically, click on the Autoplay tab at the leftmost end of the control panel.
The game’s low-value symbols are represented by familiar playing card symbols in simple bold font and a variety of vibrant colours. You will see a yellow 10, green J, red Q, blue K, and purple A. The game’s high-value symbols are all theme-related. They are represented by five kinds of bear. You will see the koala, panda, black bear, grizzly bear, and polar bear.
The game’s Wild symbol is represented by the game logo. This symbol can substitute for any of the other base game symbols, with the exception of the Bonus symbol. It also pays out on its own. The game’s Bonus symbol is represented by a bear’s paw print, with the word “bonus” printed in front of it. This symbol is key to the game’s main bonus round.
The game has a special feature called the Bear Tracks Free Games Trigger Feature. This is activated when you manage to fill the first reel entirely with the Bonus symbol. All bonus symbols in view will then be locked in place, and the reels will go for a re-spin. Any bonus symbol you land in the re-spin will be added to the stacked regions. Re-spins will continue for as long as you keep landing bonus symbols, or until you activate the main bonus round.
The game’s main bonus round is the familiar Free Spins feature. This is activated if you manage to fill all positions on the reels with the Bonus symbol. It also comes with a special feature called the Bear Trap Feature. The round begins with 15 free games. If you manage to fill the first reel entirely with the same bear symbol during any of your free spins, you will activate the Bear Trap feature.
The symbols on the first reel, all Wild symbols in view, and all bear symbols that match the first reel, will be locked in place, and the reels will go for a re-spin. If you land any bear symbol that match reel one during the re-spin, that symbol will also be locked in place. The re-spin and lock process continues as long as you keep landing bear symbols that match reel one. The round ends and all wins are paid when a re-spin does not result in a matching symbol, or if you manage to fill all reel positions with matching symbols.
Filling all reel positions with matching bear symbols will re-trigger the bonus round. You will be rewarded with 15 more free spins. The re-trigger is possible to a maximum of 150 free games.
