Frontier Spin

This new multi-progressive video slot series on Aruze’s Muso Curve-43 and Curve-43 Hybrid cabinets features a unique free-spin feature amid four total bonus events.

There are four inaugural base games in the series—Frontier Spin Wolf (pictured), Frontier Spin Bear, Frontier Spin Bull and Frontier Spin Stag.

The base game is a five-reel video slot available to casinos in configurations of 10, 20, 30, 40 or 50 paylines.

The free-spin feature is unique in this game series. In Frontier Spin Wolf, the feature is triggered by coin symbols on three or more consecutive reels, but typically, there are multiple coin symbols on one or more reels to trigger the feature. Each coin symbol bears a number—1, 2, 3, 5, or 10. When the feature is triggered, the player is awarded the sum of the numbers on the screen as the number of free spins. This can result in a maximum of 200 free games.

Each of the four Frontier Spin titles has a unique free games feature. Frontier Spin Stag allows players to select their level of volatility with up to 20 free games. Frontier Spin Bear has eight free games with a player-selected mystery symbol added. Frontier Spin Bull has eight free games with extra top symbols added.

When five or more arrow overlays appear on screen, the Frontier Spin Feature is triggered. The topper will scroll through three possible bonus features and select one. In Ultra Big Reel, a giant reel spins to land on a slice awarding credit prizes of 1,000, 1,500, 2,400, 3,000 or 4,000; or one of the four progressive jackpots (resets of $20 for the Mini, $50 for the Minor, $800 for the Major and $5,000 for the Grand).

The Bonus Wheel event spins a standard video wheel containing credit amounts ranging from 500 to 3,000 credits, and all the progressives except the Grand. Super Pick Jackpot displays 12 icons, and the player picks until revealing three matching symbols corresponding to one of the four progressive jackpots.
