America’s Rich Life

This latest title, available on Konami’s tall Dimension 49J cabinet or oversized Dimension 75C setup, features a patriotic theme and frequent spins of a bonus wheel that can lead to one of four jackpots, the top Grand a linked progressive resetting at $2,500, $5,000 or $10,000, depending on the version of the game selected. There are two base titles, Luxury Nights and Seaside Riches.

The base game is a five-reel, 50-line video slot. During reel-spinning, the background music is James Brown’s 1987 Grammy Award-winning song “Living in America.”

When six or more wheel symbols are collected, the wheel feature is triggered, and the game’s prize wheel animates front and center. Three spins are awarded at the start of the feature, with increasing prize amounts as the feature progresses.

On about half of all spins, the game’s eagle character can nudge the wheel to award a “+1 Spin.”

Three, four or five bridge symbols trigger eight, 12 or 15 free spins, respectively. It is easier to trigger the wheel bonus during the free spins, thanks to a feature that multiplies the wheel symbols on the grid. If the wheel symbol lands, the wheel “nudges” until all symbols on the reel are wheel symbols. This makes it much easier to collect the six wheels and trigger the bonus.
