Dungeons & Dragons

Konami’s take on the famous fantasy role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons plays out on the manufacturer’s Podium Monument cabinet, which features a 32-inch vertical top-box LCD monitor in addition to the standard-sized game screen.

The Podium Monument is used to convey the 40-year-old fantasy game’s theme in dramatic fashion, including a sculpted dragon topper and intricate graphics thanks to Konami’s KP3 video platform. The initial release consists of two themes, “Enchanted Riches” and “Conquests & Treasures.”

The base game in each is a five-reel, 25-line video slot, with a four-level progressive jackpot triggered through one of the bonus features. The two main bonus features are triggered when Dungeons & Dragons symbols appear on the three middle reels. This enacts the “Dungeon Master Feature,” in which a large prize wheel appears on the 32-inch vertical top-box monitor.

The wheel spins to one of five free-spin amounts, or the second-screen progressive bonus feature. Free-game options are six, eight, 10, 12 and 25 free spins.

Each of the free-game options enters the player in the “Free Game Campaign:” When “Action Stacked Symbols”—clusters of the same jackpot symbol—appear on the third reel of a free spin, it unlocks an entire new reel window. During each free-game “campaign,” up to three new reel windows can be unlocked, with results on all reel windows added together for the player’s bonus.

The Dungeons & Dragons progressive feature triggers a second-screen image of a Dungeons & Dragons game board covered by 12 spinning dice. Each die reveals a color corresponding to one of the four jackpot levels, with resets of $10, $20, $100 and $1,000. The player selects dice until revealing three matching colors, triggering the corresponding level of jackpot.
