Emerald Princess

AGS

Emerald Princess

This game, featured on the new AGS Orion Slant cabinet, is part of the Fa Cai Shu family of progressive slots, which means the top progressive jackpot can be linked to any other Fa Cai Shu games on the floor for a jackpot that grows rapidly. The top progressive in this link resets at $8,800, a nod to the Chinese lucky number 8.

The base game is a five-reel (four symbols per reel), 50-line video slot featuring three progressive jackpots—a Minor resetting at $50 and a Major starting at $500 in addition to the top Grand prize. A mystery feature in the primary game randomly causes all wilds on the screen to transform into full wild reels.

The progressives are won through a randomly triggered picking bonus after a spin in which one or more wild symbols appear. This triggers a picking bonus screen displaying 12 coins. The player picks until matching three coins corresponding to jackpots or three “Free Spin” symbols.

In addition to the progressive picking feature, the Free Spin bonus can be triggered with three or more bonus symbols in the base game. This awards 10 free games, and the feature can be re-triggered with bonus symbols in a free game. During the free spins, all wild symbols carry multipliers.
