Gorilla Hits


Gorilla Hits

This new game on the Orion Portrait cabinet is part of the Dollar Blast game family, which features jungle themes—in this one, a gorilla’s eyes stare out under a massive video bonus wheel on the large flat monitor.

The base game is a 243-ways-to-win video slot in the PowerXStream series. The main features are free spins and the large top wheel, which can lead to one of two progressive jackpots—a Major jackpot resetting at $500, and the top Grand progressive, resetting at $10,000 on the penny version of the game.

Three scattered “Wheel Bonus” symbols trigger a spin on the big Dollar Blast bonus wheel, which includes slices granting five free spins, 10 free spins, 30 free spins, and the two progressive jackpots. During free spins, the bonus trigger symbols are replaced by “More Free Spins” symbols that award an additional three spins.

Any five Dollar Blast symbols trigger the Dollar Blast Bonus. The Dollar Blast symbols explode to reveal credit prizes ranging up to 20,000 credits.
