Cash Quest

This new game series on Gaming Arts’ S104 Hybrid cabinet, with inaugural titles The Adventurers and The Protectors, works a video game-like story into the slot game. The base game is a five-line, 243-ways-to-win video slot. At the outset, the player selects one of three Adventurers or Protectors to serve as his or her avatar during the game.

During reel-spinning, sword or wand symbols appear on the reels to award up to three swords or keys. The swords and keys are collected until they are needed to “defeat an enemy.”

At any time during primary-game or free spins, enemies will appear and stay on the screen for a random number of spins. This is where the swords and keys come in, via a colorful animated battle sequence created by Gaming Arts’ proprietary 3D engine.

If the Adventurer or Protector has enough keys or swords collected, the enemy will be defeated to award credits or wild symbols, with payoffs ranging rom two to 20 times the total bet. Up to seven wilds can be awarded on a single spin.

Bonus symbols on the first, third and fifth reels trigger eight free games. Each free spin is guaranteed to include from one to seven wild symbols. The free-spin round can be retriggered.

The game is available with five operator-selectable bet ranges, with minimum bets from 5 credits to 90 credits and maximums from 50 credits to 900 credits.

Operators can add the “Rocket Rollup” feature to the game, a two-level or three-level mystery “must-hit-by” progressive jackpot, the top resetting at 100,000 credits—$1,000 on the penny version of the game.
