Everi

With this game, Everi takes on a slot theme reflecting one of the most iconic films of all time, 1942’s Casablanca starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, heading up a cast of unforgettable actors like Paul Henreid, Claude Rains, Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre.

Everi has wrapped footage and sound of all the memorable scenes in the tale of patriots in Vichy France during World War II into a progressive video slot with a variety of bonuses, on the premium Empire MPX cabinet.

The base game is a five-reel, 30-line penny slot with a five-level progressive jackpot—each of the bottom four levels linked to a character from the film. The top progressive, resetting at $3,500, is hit by filling the entire three-by-five screen with either the “Grand” or “Wild” symbol. The lower-tier progressives are won through the Knock On Wood Bonus, which spins a bonus wheel that includes all five progressives, including the top Grand prize.

The progressives are available at all bet levels.

The base game also includes a “Mystery Pick Bonus,” a picking event in which the player gets three picks from 12 symbols for credit awards or an “Exit Visa,” which triggers a new bonus. A second mystery event is the “Chance Multiplier,” which adds a multiplier of 2X, 3X or 5X to a winning spin.

Triggered by “Bonus” and “Wheel Spin” symbols, the Knock On Wood event awards five spins on a wheel that includes credit amounts and the progressives. All the prizes are added together, which means that multiple progressives can theoretically be won in one event.

There also is a free-spin event, featuring eight to 10 free spins with a “nudge” feature and “sticky wilds”—wild symbols that remain in place for the remainder of the free spins.
