Double Money Link

Double Money Link is a new game series on Light & Wonder’s Kascada Dual-Screen cabinet based on the company’s popular Money Link franchise. The two inaugural games are City of the Gods and Western Trails.

The base game is a five-reel video slot in five-line, 20-line or 40-line configuration. There is a five-level progressive jackpot, with a top prize resetting at 1 million times the denomination ($10,000 in the penny version of the game).

The new game retains the popular Locking Curtains & Walking Curtains Free Games Feature. Pyramid symbols on each of the middle reels trigger eight free spins. There are “Locked Mystery Symbols” on the screen that open with each spin to reveal game reel symbols.

The main bonus is a hold-and-re-spin feature involving cash-on-reels coin symbols. In the normal Money Link feature, triggered by six or more scattered coin symbols, the coin symbols lock in place for three free spins. When another coin symbol or one of the lower four progressive symbols lands on a free spin, it locks and the spins return to three.

When no coins land for three spins, the feature ends and all accumulated coin values and progressives are awarded. If coins land on all 15 reel spots, the top Grand Jackpot is awarded.

Randomly when the feature is triggered the game will go into “Double Money Link” mode. This triggers a second reel array above the main one. The player then proceeds with the hold-and-re-spin feature on both five-reel arrays simultaneously.
