Dragon Fa


Dragon Fa

This new Asian-themed game on the new marquee-style Orion Slant cabinet features a four-level progressive jackpot won through a picking bonus and a re-triggering free-game event. The base game is in the AGS PowerXstream group, in this case a three-by-five array returning 243 possible ways to win on every spin. (There are no paylines; wins are registered by adjacent symbols.)

At least one Bonus or wild symbol on each of the first three consecutive reels triggers 10 free spins. The free-spin feature can be retriggered for an additional 10 games with bonus and/or Free Games symbols on a free spin.

Dragon Fa features a link to the Xtreme Jackpots progressive system. The top screen displays the four progressive levels, with the top jackpot resetting at $10,000.

The fireworks display on the top screen may show one of multiple levels of activity, from none lit to all lit. The Xtreme Jackpots progressives are not local to the machine on which they are configured, and are shared when configured through a server. The progressive bonus is triggered at random, displayed by fireworks exploding to reveal a pick screen.

The player selects icons until matching three, and wins the corresponding progressive.
