The multiplier will get a good victory... If you manage to get enough 5 victories, or 5 distractions, you can pay 100 times the bet. The problem is that free spins are not easy to capture, and when they arrive, we take about 15 to 20 times the bet. If this feature is more frequent, that's not bad.
So why did it win our favor? Because it feels easier to hit, and we got some nice 30x to 40x our bet won us to let us exceed our starting bet. You win up to 150 times your bet, which is not an easy task, but it feels easier to implement than a free spin.
