Dragon: Jin Long Jin Bao

This game on Light & Wonder’s giant Mural cabinet combines a persistent cascading feature with both spinning wheel and free-game bonus events.

The base game is a five-reel video slot available to casinos in five-line, 10-line or 25-line configurations. The five-line version applies to the highest denominations, $1 and $2. The more common penny version is a 25-line game.

The distinguishing feature of this game is a persistent event that plays out on a reel array that can expand up to eight rows of symbols, called the “Coin String Feature.” If a player lands a coin symbol inside a ring of fire, it pays a cash-on-reels award for that coin and any coin above it on the reels. The reels then cascade downward, repeating the payoffs for any fire-ring coins until none appear on the reels.

Triggering symbols activate a two-level bonus wheel. The double wheels spin, and the outer wheel lands on a free-game number while the inner wheel indicates the height of the reels for the free-spin round, up to 10 rows of symbols. Ringed coin symbols stay in place for the duration of the free games, for multiple pays as more coin strings appear.

The wheel can also award one of four jackpots—static awards on the penny version of $25 (Mini) and $50 (Minor), and progressives resetting at $500 (Major) and $2,000 (Super).
