This latest title in Konami Gaming’s K2V video slot series and Podium cabinet is a five-reel, five-line game designed for high denominations. It is available to casinos in quarter, 50-cent, $1, $2 and $5 denominations.
There is a free-spin bonus event, with an extra twist. Three, four or five scattered coin symbols trigger seven, 10 or 20 free games, respectively. The normal reels are replaced by a special set of symbols for the free games.
During the free spins, each time a “nugget” symbol appears, it is recorded on a meter. When the dragon symbol lands, if five or more nuggets have been accumulated, the player is paid a bonus, beginning with five times the per-line wager for five nuggets, and rising by five-credit increments with every additional nugget-10 times the per-line bet for six nuggets, 15 times the bet for seven nuggets, etc.-until reaching 11 nuggets.
If the player has accumulated 11 or more nuggets, the bonus amounts accumulate more rapidly: 50 times the line bet for 11 nuggets; 100 times the bet for 12; 150 times the bet for 13; 500 times the bet for 14; and a top bonus of 1,000 times the line bet for a dragon symbol with 15 accumulated nuggets. The free-spin round can be re-triggered within the free spins.
