Joker's Wild Multi-Level Progressives
February 5, 2009
The Joker’s Wild Multi-Level Progressives system is IGT’s first REELdepth MLP theme built for the G MLD Upright. Offering five winner-take-all progressives, this game features 3-D Expanding Wilds, a scatter pays top award, and a bonus feature unlike anything in the industry. Debuting at release are two base games: Categories and Prizes Video Slots.
Categories is a 5-reel, 40-payline game and Prizes is a 5-reel, MultiWay theme with 243 ways to win. Each features a 200-credit maximum bet ideal for penny or 2-cent denominations, and can be linked for multi-level progressive game play using the IGT Progressive Controller. This new theme also employs Easy Bet wagering, simplifying game play. Frequent LCD celebration animations maintain player interest, and the overhead signage package features dancing The Joker’s Wild symbols.
The bonus round showcases the innovative, animated, 3-D bonus reels. Players are awarded Free Games and can win up to five progressive levels in a “winner-takes-all” fashion. The bonus is triggered when the Joker symbol lands anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5. When the bonus feature begins, players automatically win the Bronze level progressive, and anytime the Joker symbol appears, the credit win is doubled. Free Games credits won during bonus play advance the player to the next progressive level. The Joker’s Wild feature ends when the Devil symbol lands anywhere on the bonus wheel or players achieve the Platinum level. Players collect their winnings and are returned to the base game.
