This is a new AGS game family on the Orion Curve cabinet. The inaugural games in the series are Dragon Moon and Egyptian Diamond. Both base games are five-reel, 243-ways-to-win setups.

Each of the base games has a unique primary-game bonus feature. On Dragon Moon, any base game win involving one or more wild symbols may turn into a wild multiplier up to 5X. Egyptian Diamond has an expanding wild feature—when a scarab symbol lands on any of the middle three reels, the scarab will move to the reel to the right and place wild symbols on the entire reel.

Both games feature the main Firestarter Bonus, triggered by four to six Firestarter symbols. Eight ascending rows of credit awards appear above the reels, each award in line with one of the five reels. The player receives eight free spins on the three-by-five reel array. “Win” symbols on the reels award a prize and move the highlight up one space in the row.

A “Boost” symbol can eliminate up to three lower awards in that row. A “Boost All” symbol moves all reels up one award. There also are random multipliers of up to 5X on the reels, as well as extra free spins. The goal is to get enough “Win” symbols on a reel to raise the prize close to the top within the free spins. The top row awards are 2,000, 3,000, 5,000, 10,000 and the Grand progressive jackpot, resetting at $8,000.

There also is a wheel bonus on each game. When triggered by three or more Jackpot Wheel symbols, the game character appears behind a convex horizontal wheel with slices that include all six progressive jackpots, from the Mini resetting at $10 to the Grand resetting at $8,000. The character spins the wheel and the player wins a credit prize or one of the jackpots.
