Aristocrat Technologies’ popular Jaws Link four-level progressive jackpot
Technologies’ popular Jaws Link four-level progressive jackpot is now available
for the European market.
Based on the iconic Universal Pictures film franchise and packed with an array of interactive features and stunning sound and visual effects, including a striking overhead display, Jaws Link simulates the thrill of the hunt to keep players immersed in entertainment.
The base game features prize-winning symbols derived from the “Jaws” film series, including a “floating barrel,” a “Beach Closed” sign, a fishing boat called the “Orca,” a “bather” and a “snorkel” interspersed with Aristocrat’s royals, A-K-Q-J-10-9. The “shark” symbol is wild, and the “tooth” serves as a scatter symbol. Playing the ante bet can bring about frequently occurring random bonus features: Golden Jaw, Shark Hunter or Feeding Time, all interactive and themed to thrill.
Base game symbol- or randomly triggered features include a daring dice game and a wheel spin that multiplies free games.
But it’s the exciting Jaws Link feature that delivers the ultimate rush — a shark-chasing boat trip around a video game board. Land on the same space as the shark to haul in one of the four progressive jackpot prizes: Mini, Minor, Major or Grand.
Powered by Aristocrat’s robust Viridian/Gen7 platform, Jaws Link is housed in an eye-catching ocean-blue cabinet with edge lighting and water trim toppers that change color as features are hit. Bell-ringing buoy toppers come alive with movement, lighting and sound during play. Shark gill grills adorn the speakers, and the “Bash” button features an embossed shark’s tooth.
