The title of this game is Cabinet of Curiosities, and the slot cabinet itself reflects this. The theme is of a nefarious 19th century mad scientist, doctor or plain old madman who collects weird “specimens” as curiosities and puts them on shelves in a cabinet.
To reflect this, Everi’s Core HDX cabinet is given an eerie black cover, and five progressive jackpot meters surround a large, creepy-looking eyeball in the center of the top box.
The base game is a five-reel, 40-line video slot. During random base-game spins, butterflies flutter out of the cabinet and onto the reels, turning four to six reel positions wild.
Another mystery bonus occurs when spiders crawl onto the screen and spin a web to reveal either a credit award or a multiplier. Players spin a web that reveals either a credit award of up to 400 times the line bet or a multiplier of up to 10X, which is applied to the total bet.
A third mystery feature occurs when a creepy baby doll pops up to reveal a credit award.
When bonus symbols land on the first, third and fifth reels, the player is invited to choose cabinet doors, revealing objects that can be added to one of the progressive tier “specimen shelves.” Once a shelf is filled, the progressive prize is awarded and the bonus ends.
Free Spin symbols on the three middle rows trigger a bonus of double the total bet plus five free spins. During free spins, if Free Spin symbols land on reels 3, 4, and 5, the player earns double the total bet plus five free spins. Each free spin alternates the mystery features, and the free-game feature can retrigger up to 25 spins.
