In order to start spinning the reels to try your luck, you first need to set the amount that you wish to wager.

If you wish to let the game spin by itself and payout when a winning combination is formed, you can click on the autoplay button that is right next to it.
In order to have any winnings on the game you need to land a minimum of 3 matching symbols in adjacent reels on one of the 20 pay-lines. The matching symbols should be formed from left to right on this game. Forming winning combinations with low paying symbols (i.e A, K, Q, J and 10) that will bring you rewards above your bet, you would need to land a 5 of a kind winning combination. When you land 3-4 of a kind winning combinations you either get a reward that is lesser from your bet amount or exactly equal to it. A bit harder to get a worthy win.

And if you form a 5 of a kind winning combination with the most lucrative high paying symbol which are Wild and the trumpet you equally win 50X your bet. A pretty big bump which can worthwhile at the end.
