Dragon’s Jackpots

This five-level progressive game is designed to take maximum advantage of the 8-foot-high Orion Rise cabinet, with its 55-inch 4K Ultra HD LCD portrait monitor. The base game is a five-reel video slot in the PowerXStream series, which is a scatter-pay format featuring 243 possible ways to win on each spin.

There are three bonus features, each of which can ultimately lead to winning one of the five progressive prizes, the top Grand prize resetting at $10,000.

A special symbol landing on the third reel triggers the Tower Feature. The portrait screen displays a tower of four bonus awards under a “golden scroll.” The game randomly awards one of the tier credit awards, or the golden scroll. If a credit tier is awarded, the player has the option to take the award or risk it for five times the award or a lower award. If the golden scroll is awarded, the Jackpot Feature is triggered.

The Prosperity Bonus is triggered with three scattered bonus symbols in the base game. The same tier display as the Tower Feature appears, but with five tiers instead of four, plus the golden tower. One free spin is initiated. If the bonus symbol appears on the third reel it will upgrade one of the five tiers or initiate the Tower Feature. The free spins continue until one of the tiers is awarded or the Jackpot Feature begins.

The Jackpot Feature reveals five reels on the golden scroll. If there are no upgrades from the Prosperity Bonus, only the first reel is active. With one upgrade, two reels are active; with two upgrades, three reels; with three upgrades, all five reels. The first reel always awards one of the five progressives, but additional progressives can be won on the other active reels as well.
