A 3-4-3-4-3-4 reel area starting as a 3-3-2-2-1-1 with three rows blocked by barriers. Winning combinations will explode and allow new symbols to fall in. When the winning symbols are destroyed all remaining symbols will tumble downwards and then to the left before new symbols drop in. One blocked row will open up after a win, xBomb explosion adjacent to the barrier or a Wild Mining feature. The multipliers in the bottom positions are awarded whenever the barrier is removed and the symbol is destroyed or if the removed barrier reveals a Scatter symbol.
Wild Mining is triggered in main game when 3, 4 or 5 of the same kind of paying symbols align diagonally, when there is no winning combination. The triggering symbols will be removed and create a Wild symbol in the middle positions of the alignment:
- 3 symbols award 1 Wild bomb.

- 5 symbols award 3 Wild bombs.
Wild bomb explosions will increase the win multiplier by 1 for the next collapse. All other symbols will explode, except xBomb symbols. If a Scatter symbol gets blown away it reappears in a random position in next collapse.
Scatter symbols can land anywhere on the reels, but if it lands behind the barrier it will not come in play until its unblocked. Scatter symbols will stick to their positions and remains during the Canary Freespins, unless any Scatter symbol lands in the vault position. It will then be pushed to an available space towards the center. There are two types of Scatter symbols:
- Gold cage Scatter symbol
