Exotic Princess

This is one of the first games in a series Konami calls “Reeleven,” as in 11 reels. The first two reels of the game screen are traditional reels; that is to say, all of the virtual stops of the game’s program are included, with three stops displayed. The remaining three reels displayed are actually nine reels, each displayed in the space of a single symbol, each with all stops in the program represented.

This gives game designers the ability to create some unique game-play features. In Exotic Princess, a 40-line game, it is a random feature that replaces all the symbols on the first two reels with a single symbol—the woman, jewel, horse, snake, bag, perfume or one of the poker symbols. The woman symbol is wild.

When the random feature is triggered, five free games are awarded with the single symbol locked on the first two reels. There is a feature within the feature: When coin symbols appear on a free spin, the symbol occupying the first two reels is “upgraded” to the wild woman symbol. One coin symbol upgrades the first two reels to wild reels for one spin; two coins turn them wild for two spins; three coins make the reels wild for three spins.

One more feature within the feature: If the symbol occupying the first two reels appears on any of the other three during a free spin, that symbol is locked in place for the remaining spins.

The free-spin reels contain different symbols than the primary game. During the free spins, any three heart symbols trigger an additional five free games up to a maximum of 20 free spins.
