Just some of the symbols are a minibus, a car’s hub, a man in a red shirt, a woman in a blue bikini, and Queen, King, and Ace symbols, each with a different colour background. The man is the Wild symbol, and the woman is the Scatter symbol.
The car hub is the bonus symbol, which activates the Diamond Hub bonus game. The bonus game is a wheel of fortune-style game in which one of three different jackpots could be won.

Pimp My Slot Special Symbols
The Pimp My Slot Wild symbol can form winning combinations when three or more appear consecutively on an active payline. It can also create payouts in combination with other reel symbols.
The Wild can substitute for other reel symbols. When it does this, it also increases the payout with a random 2x, 5x, or 10x multiplier. However, it cannot stand in for either the Scatter or the bonus symbols.
When three or more Scatters appear anywhere on the Pimp My Slot reels, a bonus game that acts as a precursor to the free spins round will begin. Only once boxes have been selected from among those that appear on screen will the free spins round actually begin.
Unlike the base game, the free spins round features Super and sticky Wild symbols, which remain in place on the reels for a specified number of spins.
The Pimp My Slot Diamond Hub bonus game is activated when three or more hub symbols land on the reels. The game involves spinning a wheel on which there are concentric rings, each of which holds a jackpot of a different size.
