Dollar Storm

Dollar Storm is one of Aristocrat’s launch games for the new MarsX cabinet, available on a lease option created exclusively for the cabinet. Dollar Storm is the highly anticipated evolution of the industry’s top two products, Lightning Link and Dragon Link, with an added multi-site progressive jackpot.

Dollar Storm combines the best features of both of the games. Notably, Dollar Storm takes the globally recognizable theming of Lightning Link to the next level and incorporates high denominations inspired by Dragon Link—ranging from a penny through $2—while introducing an operator-configurable $5 option and an “any bet qualifies” rapid-hitting multi-site progressive starting at $50,000.

Featuring the player-favorite “Hold & Spin” bonus, Dollar Storm provides patrons with plenty of the familiar “What You See Is What You Get” game mechanic. Players can win the multi-site Super Grand Jackpot during the Hold & Spin bonus with a new MSP trigger mechanic, as well as the Grand Jackpot, Major Jackpot, and Minor and Mini bonuses, and credit prizes using the same familiar functionality as Lightning Link and Dragon Link.

Dollar Storm themes include Emperor’s Treasure, Caribbean Gold, Egyptian Jewels and Ninja Moon.

Dollar Storm plays out on the new MarsX cabinet’s two 27-inch, 4K displays and new Gen 9 internal components. A premium virtual button deck offers a high definition and minimalistic way of wagering. A 4:1 speaker system optimally projects audio from around the displays, providing crisp, balanced sound. Game-complementary corona sync edge lighting creates a unique play environment.

The MarsX fits easily into any standard cabinet space, and when placed back-to-back, its unique shape opens sight lines across the casino.
