Captain Riches

This new video slot is part of the AGS “Ultimate Choice Jackpots” game family, presented on the Orion Curve cabinet. It features a three-level mystery progressive jackpot and a unique coin collection feature that results in wild reels.

The base game is a 50-line video slot played out on a 3-5-5-5-3 reel array—three symbols on each of the outer reels and five symbols on the three inside reels. The bonus features and the progressive feature all center around a coin symbol.

Above each of the three inside reels are three circles. Each time a coin symbol lands, it fills one of the circles and remains above the reel. Collecting three coin symbols turns that entire reel wild for three spins. During those three spins, only one coin symbol triggers the feature, transforming that reel wild for three spins. Thus, it’s possible to have multiple reels wild during the feature, for potentially huge wins.

Landing one coin on any given spin can randomly trigger a progressive bonus. Ten treasure chests appear above the reels and shuffle around before revealing either a credit prize or one of three progressives—a Minor jackpot resetting at $100, a Major resetting at $500, or the Grand, resetting at $8,000. The reel array disappears to reveal three coins, giving the player a pick that can add multipliers of up to 5X to the prize.
