These twin games are available on either Everi’s Empire MPX cabinet or the sleek new Empire Edge, which features graphics that lead to the edges of the 42-inch portrait monitor for a striking display.
The base games are five-reel ways-to-win video slots with a unique 3-4-5-4-3 reel array—three symbols on the outer reels, four on reels 2 and 4, and five on the middle reel. This reel configuration yields 720 possible ways to win on each spin.
Central to the primary game are “double symbols”—symbols in a single space that count as two symbols. This enables a pay schedule with wins rising to nine of a kind. The dual symbols can appear on any of the five reels. In a mystery feature, wild gold coin symbols can expand up to three spots on a reel.
The free spin bonus offers a choice of four different volatilities, with alterations of the reel configuration and player choice of the number of spins—fewer spins with higher potential wins or more spins with a lower win potential.
There are five progressive jackpot levels, with resets in the penny version ranging from $20 to $3,000. The prizes are won through the Progressive Pick Bonus. The reels disappear to reveal a field of 17 gold coins. The player is prompted to pick coins, and if a pick reveals the title symbol—a tree or a frog—the lowest progressive is eliminated from the field.
The player picks until matching three progressive symbols to win the corresponding jackpot.
