Golden Ram


Golden Ram

This latest game on the Orion Upright dual-screen cabinet features a Greek-inspired theme centered around the sacred and mighty golden ram.

The base game is a five-reel, 243-ways-to-win scatter-pay video slot in the Money Charged Jackpots progressive link. There are four progressive jackpots, the top resetting at 1 million credits ($10,000 in the penny denomination, in an available range to $10 million in the $10 denomination).

The main bonus feature is a hold-and-spin event that can be triggered in two different ways. Three bonus symbols trigger a pick bonus that results in either a free-spin event or the hold-and-spin bonus. The free spin event awards a random number of up to 15 free games with extra wild symbols on the reels. Retriggers can result in a maximum of 25 free games with a random number of wild symbols.

The hold-and-spin feature, called the Supercharge Bonus, can be triggered either through the pick bonus or through six scattered triggering symbols on a spin. The special trigger symbols remain on the reels during three re-spins. Each time another trigger symbol lands, the clock goes back to three re-spins. Each trigger symbol reveals either a credit amount or one of the four progressive jackpots.

The Major, Minor and Mini jackpots, thus, can be won multiple times in a single bonus session. The Supercharge Bonus lasts until three spins yield no locking trigger symbols, or until the entire screen fills with credit symbols and/or progressive awards. The player is then awarded the total accumulated bonus amount on the reels.
