Happy 8’s Prosperity Boost

IT is releasing new versions of its Happy 8’s and Jolly 8’s games, called Happy 8’s Prosperity Boost and Jolly 8’s Prosperity boost.

Happy 8’s and Jolly 8’s both offer persistent-play features. The games’ main primary-game feature is “Scatter Blast,” an innovative accumulation mechanic for bonuses, progressives and added wilds over a cycle of eight spins.

Players collect wilds and progressive scatter symbols over seven spins, and on the eighth spin, all wilds are released to the 40-line reel set for one “epic spin.” Any progressive awards or bonus meters that have been filled with their respective scatters are also awarded. After eight spins, all bonus and progressive collections are reset to start the cycle over.

The new version, on the Infinity Pilot cabinet, adds bonus trigger symbols to the items collected over the eight spins, and adds a mystery “Prosperity Boost” feature. Two dragons flanking the reels randomly add collectible features like wilds, progressive scatters, bonus triggers or multipliers for eight free spins, with the chance to retrigger the spins.

All other collected features carry over into the free spins and remain for the feature, even through retriggered free games.
