That multiplier is applied to any winning combination during the spin that the multiplier symbol lands.
Furthermore, the RTP is 96.5%, the variance medium to high and the maximum prize is 10,000 times your stake. So all in all, Runner Runner PopWins scores pretty well numerically.
Theme & Symbols
Runner Runner PopWins may seem like a classic slot machine in terms of name, but in terms of design, the game is different from what you expect. So it’s not like you feel like you’re standing in front of a physical slot machine, as was the case with the other slots in the series.
For some fans of the “Runner” series, that may be a dealbreaker, but we think the design of Runner Runner PopWins is a welcome change.
The playing field in Runner Runner PopWins seems to be located in space, as numerous stars adorn the background in a purple-blue sky. On the reels, we see mostly classic slot machine symbols.
These include various fruit symbols, BAR symbols, Red 7’s and Bell symbols. It is not a spectacular design, but it is nice that Stakelogic does something different.
As you can tell from the title of Runner Runner PopWins, this slot uses the PopWins mechanism. In terms of features, Runner Runner PopWins includes a Gamble feature and a free spins feature.
Each spin in the base game starts the playing field with dimensions of 5×3. Due to the PopWins mechanism, it is possible to expand the number of symbols per reel. Namely, it ensures that winning symbols are removed and then replaced by 2 new symbols.
In this way, each reel can be expanded to a maximum of 9 symbols high.
After each winning spin, in Runner Runner PopWins you can choose to take a gamble with the prize money won. The money won is then your bet. You have 2 different variants of the Gamble feature:
Guess the color of a closed playing card correctly. If you do, your stake is doubled.
Correctly guess the symbol of a closed playing card. If you get it right, your bet is quadrupled.
Keep in mind that if you guess wrong, you will lose the entire prize money from that spin. Fortunately, using the Gamble feature is a choice, especially players who like risk will use this option.
