Buffy the Vampire Slayer


Buffy the Vampire Slayer

This game, based on the WB series starring Sarah Michelle Gellar as one of a line of young women known as “Slayers” who fight vampires and other assorted demons, is featured on Everi’s new Empire MPX cabinet, with its 55-inch vertical flat-screen HD monitor.

The base game is a five-reel, 1,024-ways-to-win video slot, with no paylines and winning combinations resulting from adjacent symbols. Randomly during either base-game or free spins, the reel array will expand from four to eight rows of symbols.

The game features a six-level progressive jackpot, won through a wheel bonus. It is available in both local-area and wide-area progressive versions. The top progressive in the LAP version resets at $20,000; in the WAP version, $100,000.

There are four main bonus events. The Buffy Pick Feature is a picking bonus in which the awards are upgraded with each pick revealing a credit award. Picks can also reveal multipliers and one of the six progressive awards.

The Helmouth Free Spins award five to 30 free games, with frequent retriggers and frequent expanding reels. The Buffy & Angel free spins award extra spins for Buffy and Angel symbols, as well as multipliers as high as 6X.

The Primeval Progressive Wheel returns higher awards with higher bets. At max bet, awards land on two wheel slices, including the chance of winning two progressives with one spin.
