Subscribers to Stock Trends Weekly Reporter have the option to lock rows before a spin and improve the odds of making another point scoring match. For instance, if a player has matched two rows, he can select those two rows to be locked in position such that in the following spin only the other three rows are randomly selected. The points payout for matches of additional rows remains the same, but the probability of making those matches improves.
The following rules apply to the locking of rows:
1) once a row match is locked, no points for the locked match are scored on the subsequent spins. That is, there is no double counting of matches when the matches are locked.
2) if the player locks more than two rows, the free spin combinations do not receive free spins. There is a cost to locking more than two rows - the player cannot accumulate additional spins with the free spin matches.
