What will then happen is that the outer wheel of the slot will spin and you will be required to see the flashing light on the outer wheel land on one of the matching reel symbols. When it does so the illuminated reel symbol will then be added to the screen to help you increase the number of winning lines you have.

Our Opinion of the Second Strike Slot
As you are only forced to play off ten paylines per spin this is an ideal slot to play if your casino account balance is running low or you only have a small bankroll to play slot games with.
However, whilst the base game Second Strike bonus feature can award some large winning payouts it can be a rather frustrating slot to play, for you are bound to experience many times when that feature triggering and never see the light land on the required symbol on the outer wheel!
So just keep in mind you may get tired or frustrated when playing this slot, but having said that with some luck in playing you could get a screen full of matching symbols thanks to the Second Strike bonus feature which will in turn see you having formed 10 five of a kind winning combinations!
