Scientific Games


Scientific Games continues its series of Bally slots based on the James Bond films with a game available as a three-reel, nine-line stepper-style slot either on the TwinStar J43 cabinet (pictured), with a 43-inch curved monitor; or the giant-sized TwinStar V75 cabinet, with its massive 75-inch curved monitor. Both versions carry a top wide-area progressive Grand Jackpot on either the Reel Adventures link ($200,000 reset) or the Cash Connection link ($400,000 reset).

The wide-area progressives are at the top of a four-level progressive display, with internal progressives resetting at $15 (Mini), $50 (Minor) and $500 (Major).

The game is based on Goldfinger, the iconic second entry in the Bond franchise of films starring Sean Connery as Agent 007. The film establishes some of the most famous Bond story elements, such as Q’s gadgets, and Agent 007’s Aston Marton car, which are reflected in reel symbols and game features.

In the primary game, one or more Bonus Wild symbols centered on a payline trigger a feature awarding a random bonus displayed on the symbols. These can include bet multipliers ranging from 150X to 2,500X; the Major, Minor or Mini jackpot; or the Wheel Bonus.

The Wheel Bonus awards one spin of a video wheel including credit prizes ranging from 300 to 4,000 times the bet multiplier, all four of the jackpots, or the Free Games feature. The wide-area Grand Jackpot is only available on the wheel at max bet.

The Free Games feature awards seven free spins for each winning combination including the Bonus Wild symbol.
