FarmVille

This is the latest release on Aristocrat’s Edge X cabinet, which features two 43-inch LCD monitors stacked in a landscape configuration that the company calls “personalized space” to create a “mini-jumbo feel” within a standard slot footprint.

FarmVille is based on the famous internet farm-building game franchise produced by Zynga. Players will find all of their favorite characters, farm animals, livestock and other icons of the internet game.

The base game is a five-reel, three-row 243-ways-to-win scatter-pay setup in the Reel Power series, in a highly volatile program.

There are two main bonus features. In the “Power of Mighty Cash Unlimited” feature, the player plays one of three levels of the Mighty Cash hold-and-spin game, in which the player spins attempting to land Mighty Cash symbols bearing bonus credit amounts, the goal being to fill up the entire reel array with the symbols, called a “blackout.”

This version of the bonus is differentiated by the “all positions filled” bonus award (2X, 3X or 4X all prizes). If the player has remaining spins after a blackout, then a new matrix is presented with higher bonus awards, and the round continues. The Mighty Cash level also determines the number of Mighty Cash spins awarded.

The other bonus is a Wheel Bonus, in which a spin of a prize wheel yields bonus credits, free games or a picking bonus with the object of revealing three matching icons corresponding to one of five single-site progressive jackpots, the top jackpot resetting at either $2,500 or $5,000.

The free-game bonus features unlimited retriggers through the bonus wheel.
