Dancing Drums Reels

As the debut title on the new TwinStar 5RM five-reel stepper cabinet, Scientific Games brings one of its most popular video slots to the reel-spinning genre. The new cabinet boasts five reels with full RGB LED backlights, LED reel dividers, and bezel lighting.

Similar to the hit video version, Dancing Drums Reels is a Reel Ways scatter-pay game with 243 ways to win. The game showcases beautiful Asian imagery, a unique Free Games Bonus, and four levels of progressive jackpots that are won in the familiar Fu Bat Jackpot Feature starring the famous “Fu Babies.”

Three or more scattered Drum symbols trigger the Free Games Bonus, awarding three, five or 10 free games with a random multiplier. During the free games, two or ore scattered Drum symbols on adjacent reels award three additional free games.

One or more Fu Bat symbols on the reels triggers the main Fu Babies Bonus. The video screen above the reels displays a pick field with 12 icons. Players pick to reveal Fu Baby symbols that correspond to each of the Fu Babies Jackpots—Mini, Minor, Major or Grand. The player picks until three matching Fu Babies are found, triggering the corresponding jackpot.

The top Grand Jackpot resets at 1 million credits times the denomination—$10,000 on the penny version of the game.
