Double Flamin’ Link

This new game series, with base games Blazing Tiki and Blazing Ares, features “Helping Hand” game characters (they laugh when you touch them on the screen) that pop up and increase chances of winning.

The base game is a five-reel video slot available with 30 or 50 paylines. The central feature revolves around “cash balls” that land on the reels. Six cash balls trigger a hold-and-spin bonus. The spin meter sets at three spins, and additional cash balls landing in the feature reset the meter to three. The cash balls transform into cash-on-reels symbols or one of the two smaller jackpots—static prizes of $12 (Mini) and $60 (Minor).

The unique feature here is that the Helping Hand character can throw cash balls onto the screen, or split cash balls into two symbols, to help trigger the bonus, or to reset the spin meter. During the hold-and-spin feature, colorful jackpot cash balls, guaranteed wins, splitting cash balls, and large cash balls for large credit values ensure no two bonuses will be alike. The Helping Hand characters can even split cash balls or save a player when they’re out of spins.

If the hold-and-spin feature yields a blackout—all 15 reel spots containing cash symbols—the Helping Hand character appears and juggles fireballs until one reveals a guaranteed progressive jackpot—the Major, resetting at $500 or the Grand, resetting at $10,000.
