Bonus Attack

This new progressive video slot contains several firsts for Everi and for the slot business. It’s the first game to be released exclusively on Everi’s new Core HDX cabinet, which features dual high-definition monitors, an ergonomic design with monitors close to the player, vastly improved sound over previous platforms, and dynamic lighting against a black background surrounding the oversized vertical monitor, giving the whole presentation a cinematic feel.

It also is the first game to employ a new feature called “Everi Bet.” This is a feature allowing operators to select any percentage program without affecting the best features or jackpot frequency of the game. For players, it means the higher the bet, the higher the progressive jackpot levels. On this particular game, there are 10 levels of progressives, and players will see the jackpots rise as they wager more.

The base game is a five-reel, 40-line video slot with classic fruit and 7 symbols, with wild symbols added to the mix. But as the game title indicates, this game centers around the bonus, which happens very frequently when the player lands five “Bonus Attack” symbols scattered on the reels.

This triggers a free-spin round tied to the 10 progressive jackpot levels on the top screen—the levels adjusted, of course, according to the wager. Triggering the bonus alone grants a random credit award of up to 25 times the total bet. From there, free spins can take the player up the ladder of progressives, according to the number of Bonus Attack symbols landing on each spin, beginning with the lowest jackpot for one of the symbols and rising to the top progressive for 10 symbols.

The free spins continue as long as the player achieves the next level of progressive, up to a maximum of 103 free games or achievement of the 10th jackpot level—which carries a bonus award of 500 times the bet.
