This is a unique game on Everi’s Empire Flex cabinet. There are no reels. The base game is a picking game in which the player selects from a field of gift boxes to reveal potential credit awards, additional boxes, or coins that travel upward to fill one of three bonus pots.

The game is available exclusively in the penny denomination, but it features a huge range of bets. The player selects Purple Box Bets, Green Box Bets, Orange Box Bets or Red Box Bets.

The selection guides the color of the gift boxes in the picking game, and each contains a range of potential wagers—selecting Purple Box Bets places the selection of wagers in a range of 40 credits to 75 credits. Selecting Green places the wagers at 100 credits to 300 credits; Orange, 500 credits to 1,000 credits; and Red, 2,500 credits to the game’s max bet of 9,900 credits—$99.

Filling one of the pots at the top of the screen triggers one of three bonuses. In the Woosh Bonus, a wheel appears, its slices carrying credit amounts governed by the box color. In the Blast Bonus, a 15-by-8 grid of numbers appears. Some numbers disappear and others lock in place for a cumulative bonus. In the Pop Bonus, a grid appears with flashing numbers. The player hits a button to stop the flashing on five spaces, to award credit prizes, additional stops and/or all the prizes in the row or column in which an arrow appears.
