Cash Claw

Cash Claw is the newest game on Konami’s “Advantage Revolution” cabinet, which has a movable center display that includes mechanical reels, a video display and a physical bonus wheel.

The game is a three-reel “27 Ways” game, which means there are no pay lines; all wins are paid as scatters for 27 possible winning combinations on every spin. The minimum bet is 40 credits, and all wins are multiplied by the total bet, except for the progressive jackpots. There are six of them in this game, ranging from a Mini resetting at $5 to a Supreme resetting at $10,000.

There are three bonus events, all randomly triggered while playing the base game. “Secret Power Symbols” transforms from one to all three reels into wild symbols (this happens on the mechanical reels, which is unique). With all nine reel spots wild, the payoff is 4,050 credits times the bet.

The second feature is called “Bubble Strike Frenzy.” This causes the main display to rotate to a wheel, with an arrow spinning clockwise around the screen. The player accumulates credits for each spin based on where the arrow lands. The arrow can land on a variety of different colored bubbles, each with an assigned value from 10 credits to 10,000 credits. Arrow spins continue until it lands on Collect.

The progressive bonus is called the “Number Bonus Winning Star.” The display rotates to a video screen displaying three chests. The player selects one, which awards from two to nine stars, which randomly replace numbers on a card. Bonus spins are awarded to fill in more numbers until “Collect” appears. The number of lines covered on the card determines the progressive level won.
