Fantastic Jackpots

This is a stylish new game family from Aristocrat that uses bright colors, graphics and carousel-style merchandising to celebrate Las Vegas. It is available in three of the slot-maker’s most popular new cabinets—Arc Single, Helix and the new Helix+.

In the Arc Single (pictured), carousels are designed with the games separated by the Fantastic Jackpots logo—styled after the famous “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign at the south end of the Las Vegas Strip.

The new game family is part of Aristocrat’s J*Series of slots featuring progressive jackpots. In this case, it is a five-level progressive, with jackpots triggered by five-of-a-kind hands and resetting at $25, $40, $50, $100 and $1,000. The games also feature a prize ladder triggered by three- and four-of-a-kind wins, as well as frequent low-level jackpots and bonus prizes.

The Fantastic Jackpots series is being launched with two initial base games—Fantastic Fantasy and Fantastic Fortunes.
