Electrifying Riches

This new video slot in Konami’s KP3 format includes a fun mad-scientist/electricity theme with the classic free-spin bonus and a special feature called “Action Stacked Symbols.”

The base game is a  30-line video slot with a wild symbol—the scientist—substituting for most of the other symbols. In the random Action Stacked Symbols feature, the man, switch, woman, dog, microscope, flask or any of the poker symbols randomly appear in adjacent spots. If one symbol fills up every spot on the first reel, it is duplicated on one or more of the other reels during the reel spin—Konami calls it “copy and paste,” and it results in either additional reels or it can trigger the bonus feature.

Three, four or five switch symbols trigger five, 10 or 15 free games, respectively. During the free games, pays for all wins are doubled. Landing the triggering symbols during a free spin causes the corresponding number of free spins to be tacked on to the end of the free game round.

One unique aspect of this game is that the player can choose a straight credit prize in lieu of the free spins. When the free-game feature is triggered, the player is given the choice of “FREE GAME” or “CREDIT PRIZE.” The credit prize is a random amount that, on average, is larger according to how many free games the player is trading. The player can even do both free spins and the credit prize if the feature has been re-triggered. As long as there are more than 20 free spins remaining, the player can press the credit-prize button and be awarded the straight credit bonus in addition to whatever has already been won in the free games.
