Coin Collector: 5 Guardians

This game on Aruze’s new Muso Triple-27 cabinet features a mystery four-level progressive and varied bonus features. The base game is a five-by-four format (five reels, four rows each) available in configurations of four, 25 or 50 paylines.

Randomly in the primary game, a “Mystery Symbol” on the reels changes to any of 14 other symbols, including wilds, after the reels stop spinning. Multiple Mystery Symbols on the reels change to the same symbol, promoting large wins.

The progressive jackpots are mystery prizes, which occur randomly as a “Jackpot Surprise” feature. When this feature appears, one of the four prizes is awarded—static bonuses of $10 (Mini) or $50 (Minor), or progressives resetting at $500 (Major) or $5,000 (Grand).

There are two different free-spin bonuses. In “5 Guardians,” green bonus symbols appearing on three or more consecutive reels each display a number, and the accumulated numbers translate into how many free spins are awarded.

“Dream Collector” is a persistent bonus that is the central feature of the game. Six or more scattered coin symbols lock into place for three free spins. Each coin symbol displays a bonus credit amount that is awarded at the end of each spin. Any subsequent coin symbols locks in place, returning the number of remaining free spins to three. The bonus continues until either all free spins—a potential total of 200—play out or coin symbols fill all 20 spots on the reel array.

Filling the array with symbols awards the Grand Jackpot, plus all the accumulated bonus awards.
