999.9 Gold Wheel Ultra Stack Lion Gold; Dragon Gold

These companion games reside on Aruze’s Cube-X Ultimate cabinet, which adds a physical wheel to the premium Cube-X video format, which players can spin for credit amounts or one of four progressive jackpots.

999.9 Gold Wheel Ultra Stack Lion Gold (pictured) and 999.9 Gold Wheel Ultra Stack Dragon Gold are both five-reel, 50-line video slots. Players can choose to add Gold Reels, which unlock progressives and add one solid reel of wilds, by increasing their bet. Max bet unlocks all progressives and adds the possibility of a 2X wild multiplier for the wild reel.

Betting up also makes it possible to trigger the mechanical “Gold Wheel,” which awards free games played on special reels with a greater number of the top-paying symbol.

There is a free-spin bonus triggered by scattered bonus symbols on the three middle reels. This triggers eight free games, and the feature can be retriggered within the free games.

Three scattered SPIN symbols on the middle reels trigger the 999.9 Gold Wheel Feature. The physical wheel will spin and award eight, 10, 15, 20 or 50 free games, or award a spin on the Jackpot Wheel. If the Jackpot slice lands on the physical wheel, the top LCD monitor displays a large Jackpot Wheel—it contains only the four progressive jackpots as slices.

The jackpots levels change according to the amount bet. At max bet, the progressives reset at $10, $50, $500 and $5,000.
