This dual-progressive video slot is on the new AGS core cabinet called Icon, which features a thin profile, fun light effects and a high-quality sound system.

The base game is a five-reel, 50-line video slot on a four-by-five reel setup, with a minimum bet of 50 credits. Game play is centered around a feature AGS calls Dynamic Streaming Stacks. In this format, multiple large stacks of symbols are randomly inserted from spin to spin, increasing the frequency of five-of-a-kind and other big wins.

The feature is particularly valuable in the free-spin bonus round. Three or more bonus symbols in any position on the reels triggers anywhere from five to 20 free games, with more free spins by retriggering the feature on a free spin.

The two progressive jackpots are mystery events—they will hit randomly on an active spin, regardless of the resulting reel combination. They are both “Must Hit By” jackpots—each meter displays the level at which the jackpot is guaranteed to hit, adding to player anticipation and potentially resulting in doses of jackpot fever as it approaches the must-hit level. The secondary progressive resets at $200 and must hit before or when it reaches $500. The top progressive resets at $4,000 and must hit by $5,000.
