AC Coin uses its frequent “Quick Hit” bonus in this game to augment a unique take on the top-box bonus the company has perfected over the years. The base game is IGT’s Double Jackpot 7s, which features multiple “7” combinations with some marked “Double.” Paying combinations including one Double symbol double the win. Two Double symbols multiply it by four; three multiply it by eight—except for the Double 7 symbols, which pay the top jackpot when lining up five on a payline to turn in the game’s top jackpot of 50,000 credits times the line bet.
The “Quick Hit” bonus event occurs every seven spins, on average, with the maximum bet wagered. Two scattered bonus symbols trigger one of three mini-bonus games, called Star Gazery, Dream Catcher and Pegasus. Each has 12 hidden credit award values, and the top box displays animation while one is awarded. The average bonus award is 135 credits.
The “Double Bonus Event” occurs once every 64 spins, on average, with max-bet. Three scattered bonus symbols on the middle reels activate the top LCD screen, which displays nine reels. The screen displays eight different spin awards, and awards one when the player hits a flashing button. A game card lists seven award values and the “Dream Weaver” symbol, which is a 2X multiplier. There also are three “Bonus Win” symbols.
All nine reels spin, then stop to display random award symbols. As each reel-set displays matching award symbols, the amount for each is added together and displayed in a “Row Win” display. This continues until all the spins are complete. Awards are then added together for the bonus. The average bonus is 1,423 credits.
The Quick Hit event and the main bonus translate into lots of time-on-device for the player, and a low volatility for the operator.
