Fu Frenzy


Fu Frenzy

This game, available on all of Bluberi’s main cabinets, features an Asian theme centered around a “cash waterfall” that pours gems representing credit awards, symbol replacements and other prizes to the screen during the main bonus.

The base game is a five-reel, 243-ways-to-win video slot. Every 1.5 to six minutes, the game goes into “Frenzy Mode,” in which wild symbols can trigger the main Frenzy Bonus. In this feature, prizes flow down in the waterfall, to trigger credit awards, free games, or one of four progressives, resetting at $7 (Mini), $25 (Minor), $800 (Major) and $8,000 (Grand), within a clocked time period.

If the Mini is won, a unique true-odds “mini game” feature called “Gamble the Mini” gives the player the chance to gamble the prize in an attempt to double or quadruple it. The player picks from four gems, with an even chance to unveil the Mini at 1X, 2X, or 4X, or a loss of the jackpot. If the player lands the 2X, it triggers a chance to gamble that win in an attempt to unveil the 4X spot.

Three or more adjacent bonus symbols trigger the free-game bonus, and another great gamble for the player—a choice of volatility for the free games. The player chooses 10 free games with wins at 1X, five free games with wins at 2X, two free games with wins at 5X, or one free game with all wins at 10X.

The game is placed in a selectable multi-denomination setup.
