This game is designed to maximize the use of the 43-inch vertical monitor of the Empire MPX cabinet. The base game is played out on three stacked reel arrays, each array a three-by-five layout with 25 lines. In an incentive for larger bets, only two of the reel sets are available with the minimum cost-to-cover wager of 60 credits. All three reel arrays are active at a bet of 88 credits or higher.

There is a six-level progressive jackpot, with reset levels of $6.16, $9.68, $19.36, $57.20, $132 and $10,000, the top prize.

Three or more bonus symbols on an active reel on any of the arrays trigger a free-spin bonus. Free spins feature “Nudge” and “Symbol Save” features. When a wild symbol lands, it nudges to cover the entire reel with wilds. The wild reel then remains in place for the remainder of the free spins.

The main progressive bonus is called “Jackpot Advance.” When triggered, the screen switches to a field of 20 icons underneath a ladder display of all the progressives. The player selects from the icons to reveal credit prizes, additional picks or a “Jackpot Advance” symbol. The Jackpot Advance symbol moves the indicators up the progressive ladder. If the player reaches the top of the ladder before the picks run out, it awards the top $10,000 prize.
