Only through the mystery symbol the Blue Ying Yang bonus symbol can appear. The only symbol that can not appear through the mystery symbols is the Red Ying Yang bonus symbol.
Triggering the Wheel Bonus
This is the only bonus the game has, and players can trigger it in 2 ways. First by landing 3 or more Red Ying Yang scatters anywhere in view. 3 Red scatters will trigger the bonus. Landing 4 or 5 red scatter will give 1 or 2 extra lives respectively. The second method to trigger the Wheel Bonus is by getting 1 Blue Ying Yang bonus symbol.

Wheel Bonus Play
If the player triggers the Wheel Bonus - 3 wheels will appear. The first wheel will start spinning and give different cash prizes. Apart from the prizes, there is also a “Level Up” arrow on the wheels. Getting the “Level Up” will take the player to the next wheel. The goal is to go all the way to the 3rd wheel, which has the biggest prizes. A wheel will continue spinning, and giving prizes, until the player lands the same prize for a second time. When this occurs the bonus game will end and the player will get the prizes won so far. However if the player has extra lives and lands a prize twice - the life will be spent and the wheel will keep spinning until it lands a prize for the second time again.
