Abstract

A game is disclosed having two parts or events. A first part of the game, which may be referred to as a main or first game, comprises displaying a set of symbols. The outcome of the first game is dependent upon the symbols displayed. The second part of the game may be referred to as a bonus opportunity or event, or a secondary game. If the outcome of the main game is a winning outcome, then one or more symbols used to play the main game are automatically removed and replaced to generate a new combination or set of symbols. The outcome of the bonus event is dependent upon the new set of displayed symbols. The game may be implemented as a wager type game to provide the player an award or winnings for a winning outcome of the main game or the bonus event(s).
