Heat ‘Em Up Power Wheel

This new release on Incredible Technologies’ huge marquee-style Infinity V55 flat-screen cabinet, like a lot of hit IT games, calls on the features of a current hit, the player-favorite Heat ‘Em Up.

The five-reel, 30-line base game, like the original, offers opportunities for big credit wins with “Instant Stacks” any time three Heat ‘Em Up symbols land in stacks on the second and fourth reels. The new game, though, uses the 55-inch vertical full-touch-screen LCD to display a gigantic Power Wheel, which spins constantly as the game’s reels spin in the three-by-five array.

Three Power Wheel scatter symbols in the base game trigger one spin on the wheel for credit awards, one of six progressive jackpots, or entry into the Super Power Up Bonus Game. Players landing on credits wedges will have the chance to increase their winnings with a secondary wheel of multiplier wedges—up to 4X—and a re-spin wedge, giving players another chance at a jackpot or bonus feature.

If the pointer stops on the “Bonus” wedge, a second wheel appears to determine how tall the bonus Super Power Up tower will be—up to seven wheels are available.

Each wheel throughout the bonus is spun individually as players work their way up from level 1 by landing on “power up” wedges to move to the next wheel with increased credit awards. Even players making it to the final wheel have the chance to land on a re-spin wedge, creating huge wins.
