Power Strike Class III ALPHA Elite V20 Video Slot/CineVision widescreen video slot
October 22, 2009
The allure of winning a top-end luxury prize like a car, boat or motorcycle is proven to be irresistible for players. Now gaming operators can maximize the impact of these crowd-pleasing slot promotions without the hassle, thanks to an entirely new concept in progressive slots. Power Strike is the first gaming product developed from the ground up to incorporate the cost of promotional items into the game math itself, thereby eliminating guesswork and making it easy for gaming operators to merchandise such “big-ticket” items as cars, boats, RVs, vacations, motorcycles, trucks, jewelry and much more.
Power Strike’s trio of games – Royal 7s, Golden Crown and Golden 8s – uses the highly successful Quick Hit math model and features four linkable progressives, incorporating the top merchandise award into the equation. The merchandise value can be set from 15,000 times the total bet up to 50,000 times the total bet. Multiple denom and configurations allow the Power Strike games to be used with virtually any merchandise of substantial value.
Because Power Strike builds the value of a luxury item into the game configuration, it allows operators to seamlessly create, add or modify these attention-getting promotions with remarkable ease and unsurpassed flexibility. Plus! Power Strike can also be used as a traditional linked progressive game which displays the top award in currency, instead of the value of a specific luxury item.
The Power Strike games feature multi-denom capability ranging from one-cent up to one dollar (suggested configuration: one-cent denomination, 30 lines and 150-credit max bet). Progressives can be stand-alone or linked. The game features a five-level internal/external progressive. The top progressive jackpot is won when nine “Power Strike” symbols appeared scattered on the screen. In addition to the six top-level progressive jackpots mentioned previously, Power Strike also incorporates four lower-level jackpots triggered by from three to eight “Power Strike” symbols. These jackpots pay out from one up to 1,000 credits times the denomination times the max bet, respectively.
Another exciting aspect of Power Strike is its Free Games Bonus. Three “Free Games” symbols appearing on or within one position of the first payline activates this event. The playfield changes from reels to a grid of 20 cards. The player is prompted to touch the screen and select symbols until they match three symbols. The matching symbols will award from five free games at two times normal pay up to 25 free games at three times normal pay. If the player reveals a “Wild Card” during this process, an additional five free games are added to the total.
