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 Line Bet +/- tabs to set the amount you want to wager per active payline.

For a chosen number of uninterrupted spins, click on the Auto Spin tab at the rightmost end of the control panel.
The game’s low-value symbols are represented by familiar playing card symbols in a colourful and fun-looking font. You will see a yellow 9, pink 10, blue J, green Q, orange K, and red A. The game’s high-value symbols are all related to the overall theme of the game. They are represented by a lampshade and four different insects. There is a cheerful-looking grasshopper, a big brown bug stuffing itself with food, a dolled-up lady bee, and a smiling aphid.
The game’s Wild symbol is represented by the mosquito itself. This symbol pays out handsomely on its own, potentially rewarding you with 18,000 credits for five on an active payline. It can also substitute for any of the other base game symbols, with the exception if the Scatter symbol. The game’s Scatter symbol is represented by a ‘No Mosquitoes Allowed’ sign. This symbol pays out on its own, regardless of where it lands on the reels, and is also key to the game’s main bonus round.
The game’s main bonus round is the familiar Free Spins feature. This is activated when you land at least three Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. You will be rewarded with 15 free spins. The value of any winning combination you land during this round will be subject to a 3x multiplier.
The game also has the familiar Gamble feature. Every time you land a winning combination, you will be given the option of whether to collect your prize or gamble it. If you choose to gamble, you will be brought to a mini-game where you will need to guess the colour of the next playing card to be drawn. If you guess correctly, your prize will be doubled and the mini-game will continue. If you guess wrong, the mini-game will end and you will lose your total prize for that round.
