Happy 8’s

This game on Incredible Technologies’ super-sized V55 cabinet is an Asian-themed game centered around the Chinese lucky number 8. The base game is a five-reel, 40-line video slot available with five different pay tables.

The game’s main primary-game feature is “Scatter Blast,” an innovative accumulation mechanic for bonuses, progressives and added wilds over a cycle of eight spins.

On the eighth spin, all wilds are released to the 40-line reel set below for potentially huge wins. 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.

Three Bonus scatters appearing within the bonus meter over the course of eight spins trigger eight free games. Any accumulated wilds from the base game are carried over to free spins, where accumulated wilds are active on the reels and shift with every spin.

All the collected wilds and features carry back over to the base game to finish up any remaining spins in the cycle for more chances to gather wilds and win progressive awards.
