Goldfish Deluxe

This is one of the first releases on Scientific Games’ new TwinStar cabinet, which combines the best hardware and software features of the legacy WMS and Bally brands with features including vivid dual 24-inch full HD displays and the new ArgOS state-of-the-art operating platform, designed for both Bally- and WMS-branded content.

The format includes Bally innovations like a larger version of the popular Bally iDeck button panel for interactive features, and the “Wager Saver” feature from WMS, which automatically boosts the bet to the required minimum when the credit meter drops below that level.

The base game is a five-reel, 30-line video slot that follows the basic format of the original Gold Fish, one of the most popular games in the WMS brand. To this basic game play are added five different mystery bonus events—any of the five bonuses can randomly occur after any spin.

In the Gold Fish Bonus, the player picks one of six bubbles to reveal a number of free spins between five and 20. After every winning free spin, the player picks one of five bubbles to reveal a multiplier of 2X-10X, which is applied to the win. If a Starfish appears with the multiplier, three extra spins are awarded with the revealed multiplier.

In the Green Fish Bonus, the player picks one of 10 bubbles to reveal a credit award, “Award All” to land all hidden credit awards, or “Award All + Pick Again.” The player can get the latter full-screen award up to four consecutive times.

In the Blue Fish Bonus, the player is awarded two to four free spins. The Red Fish Bonus awards one free spin, with between two and 10 wild symbols added. The Purple Fish Bonus allows the player to pick three of 10 bubbles, each bubble representing a unique number from 0 to 9. The player places the first digit, and the other two are randomly placed. If the resulting number matches a displayed “Match Number,” the player receives an additional 10,000 credits times the bet multiplier.
