Fortune Charm

This new Asian-themed game is available on IGT’s CrystalDual 27 or CrystalSlant dual-screen cabinet.

The base game is a five-reel, 243-ways-to-win video slot. The scatter-pay format uses no paylines, but pays for adjacent like symbols, with 243 possible ways to win on each spin.

The game features stacked symbols and a frequently occurring Fortune Charm bonus feature. Triggered when one or more charm symbols land on the reels, the feature awards either bonus credits, a free-game round, or a progressive picking bonus in which the player picks icons to reveal one of four near-area progressive jackpots.

The jackpots reset at 500 credits times the denomination (Mini), 1,000 times the denomination (Minor), 2,500 times the denomination (Major) and 10,000 times the denomination (Maxi).

During the progressive picking bonus, the player can increase all the progressive values by revealing a “Boost,” “Super Boost” or “Mega Boost” symbol.

The three-by-five core game features a 60-credit cost-to-cover. It is available in a choice of 26 denominations ranging from a penny through $5,000.
