This game on SG’s new Kascada premium curved-monitor portrait cabinet is a follow-up to the hit game Duo Fu Duo Cai. 5 Treasures Explosion features a player-selectable free-spin round added to the familiar Fu Babies Bonus, in which players pick to match three Fu Babies that correspond to one of four jackpots.
The base game is a five-reel, 243-ways-to-win scatter game. Randomly before the reels spin, a number of positions are replaced with Bonus Replacement and/or Wild Replacement symbols. Reels 1, 2, and 3 are replaced with Bonus Replacement symbols, a Red Door symbol, and/or a Gold Door symbol. Reels 2, 3, and 4 are replaced with Wild Replacement symbols, a Red Fu, and/or a Gold Fu symbol.
One or more scattered Red Fu and/or Gold Fu symbols triggers the Fu Babies Bonus. If the bonus triggers with at least one Gold Fu symbol, the Fu Babies Gold Bonus will be activated. Players pick from 12 golden Lucky Coins until three matching Fu Babies symbols are revealed. Each Fu Babies symbol corresponds to the Mini, Minor, Major or Grand jackpot.
The top prize can be placed on the Cash Connection wide-area progressive link with a $400,000 reset level or the Reel Adventures link with a $200,000 top reset level.
During the Fu Babies Gold Bonus, jackpots will upgrade to the Gold Jackpots. When playing 588 credits or more the Grand will transform into the “Explosion Jackpot.” The value displayed in the corresponding meter is awarded. The chances of winning a jackpot increases with higher bet levels.
Three or more scattered Red Door and/or Gold Door symbols trigger six free spins. If the bonus triggers with at least one Gold Door symbol, then the Gold Free Spins Bonus will be activated. During the bonus, three or more scattered Red Door symbols award six additional free spins. Before the bonus initiates, players select one of five free game/wild symbol combinations, picking the volatility of the bonus.
