Dancing Drums Explosion

Scientific Games

This new version of one of Scientific Games’ most popular Asian themes is featured on the large-format TwinStar V75 cabinet, with its massive 75-inch flat screen monitor.

The base game is a five-reel, 243-ways-to-win video slot available on one of two SG wide-area progressive links—Cash Connection, with a jackpot resetting at $400,000; or Reel Adventures, with a top prize resetting at $100,000.

A mystery event in the primary game is called “Replacement Symbols.” Randomly before the reels spin, a number of positions are replaced with Bonus Replacement and/or Wild Replacement symbols. Reels 1, 2, and 3 are replaced with Bonus Replacement symbols, a Red Drum symbol, and/or a Gold Drum symbol. Reels 2, 3, and 4 are replaced with Wild Replacement symbols, a Red Fu, and/or a Gold Fu symbol. The probability of the replacement symbols appearing on the reels changes with the bet options.

One or more scattered Red Fu and/or Gold Fu symbols triggers the “Fu Babies Bonus.” If the bonus triggers with at least one Gold Fu symbol, the Fu Babies Gold Bonus will be activated. Players pick from 12 golden Lucky Coins until three matching Fu Babies symbols are revealed. Each Fu Babies symbol corresponds to the Mini, Minor, Major or Grand progressive jackpot.

During the Fu Babies Gold Bonus, jackpots will upgrade to the Gold Jackpots. When playing 588 credits or more, the Grand will transform into the “Explosion Jackpot.” The value displayed in the corresponding meter is awarded. The chances of winning a jackpot increase with higher bet levels.

Finally, a free spin bonus is triggered by three or more scattered Red Drum and/or Gold Drum symbols. If the bonus triggers with at least one Gold Drum symbol, then the Gold Free Spins Bonus will be activated. During the bonus, two or more scattered Red Drum symbols award three additional free spins.

Before the bonus initiates, players can select five free games with different grid size scenarios, which include up to 15 free spins, and a grid size up to 6×5 when playing standard free spins, and up to 8×5 grid size when playing Gold Free Spins.
