Dragon (Jin Long Jin Bao)

This game on Light & Wonder’s giant Mural cabinet combines a potentially lucrative persistent feature with a wheel bonus and a free-spin round on expanding reels into a rich feature package.

The base game uses a five-by-five grid—five rows of symbols on five reels. It is available to casinos in configurations of five, 10 or 25 paylines. The primary game includes the “Coin String Feature,” a persistent feature triggered by cash-on-reels coin symbols that each appear in a ring of fire. When a coin symbol appears in a fire ring, the value of that coin and any coin above it on the reels is paid. The ringed coins then cascade down with subsequent spins until they disappear at the bottom, paying the player multiple times.

There is a wheel feature that plays out on a double bonus wheel that can lead to one of four jackpots—static prizes of $25 and $50 and progressives resetting on the penny version of the game at $500, $2,000 and the top $10,000.

The jackpots are on the outer ring of the wheel, where all other slices display numbers of free games, up to 50 free spins. The inner wheel dictates the height of the reel array, up to a double height of 10 rows.

The Coin String Feature is active on the expanded reel array, making for a lot of cascading coin awards down the extra rows, and with greater frequency than in the primary game. The oversized monitor on the Mural cabinet enhances the effect.
