The in-game vending machine prominently displays a 5x5 grid matrix with 35 built-in paylines for determining wins. Wins are evaluated from the leftmost reel and occur with a theoretical frequency of 43.64%, based on the default 96.28% RTP version, although there are three other return models to consider. Regardless of the model chosen, Vending Machine is a medium-high volatility slot that accepts bets ranging from 0.10 to 100. When a winning combination is formed, the symbols involved vanish from the reels, and new symbols fall into the empty spaces from above. The cascade sequence continues until no new wins are created, at which point players receive their payout. If a 5-of-a-kind win consists of low-paying symbols like bread, Chews, candy, and a lollipop, the reward is 2 times the bet. For higher-paying symbols such as ice blocks, soda cans, juice boxes, or drink symbols, a 5-of-a-kind win can pay out 6 to 20 times the stake. Assisting in creating these winning combinations is the popcorn wild symbol, which can replace any regular pay symbol. On the left side of the grid, there is an inactive multiplier visible for each row. These multipliers begin each spin with values ranging from x2 to x10. The multiplier on each row with a winning symbol is increased by the quantity of winning symbols on that row when a winning combination occurs. Every sign adds one more to the multiplier. A Lightning Bolt dispersion that lands turns on the multiplier for that row. This spin and chill feature activates when four FS symbols are hit during the base game. It starts with five rows of multipliers engaged and finishes when none are left.
