If a player lands the treasure icon on the reels during the Fire Starter Wild Reel, the reel will be held locked for a re-spin.

Save the Princess Bonus Round will get activated when players land three or more knight in shiny armour icons on any active pay-line.
Apart from the bonuses, Once Upon A Time lacks any imagination except when it comes to the visual and audios involved. Saying that the bonus features do more than makeup for boosting a player's wins.
