Ainsworth Game Technology

Eagle Mountain

This game uses all of Ainsworth’s new A560L cabinet for a video slot utilizing large symbols under four progressive jackpot levels, the top prize resetting at ,500.

Unlike many multiple-progressive slots, this one ties each of the four progressives to a five-of-a-kind line combination with maximum bet. Poker symbols trigger the lower two jackpots, a Mini resetting at $20 and a Minor resetting at $50. The Major, starting at $250, is triggered by three different five-of-a-kind combinations. The top prize is returned by five “Bear” or five “Wolf” symbols. Jackpot combinations cannot contain wild symbols.

To this basic setup—the base game is available to casinos in configurations of 30, 40 or 50 paylines—is added a dual-level free-spin bonus event.

Three scattered “Mountain” symbols trigger eight free games. During free games, all symbols except scatter symbols are stacked. The “Eagle” appears on the second and fourth reels as wild symbols. “Wild Multiplier” on the third reel substitutes for all standard symbols and multiplies the win. Three or more Mountain symbols on a free spin trigger the second level of the event, the “Eagle Mountain Feature.”

Once triggered, all remaining free games are played as the Eagle Mountain Feature. A new Eagle Mountain logo symbol appears only on the two outer reels, and substitutes for all symbols except “Wild Multiplier” and “Eagle.”

When scattered Eagle Mountain logo symbols appear on reel 1 and reel 5, all symbols on the same rows (except Wild Multiplier) are transformed to “Eagle” symbols. All pays are tripled when all symbols on all reels are transformed to “Eagle.”
