Heat ‘Em Up

Heat ‘Em Up, on Incredible Technologies’ new Infinity Skybox extra-tall cabinet, utilizes the top 52-inch LCD monitor for IT’s unique “Sky Reels” feature, which extends the play area and paylines.

The base game is a 30-line video slot with max-bet options ranging from 60 to 300. The reel array features classic bars, 7s, cherries and bells in a traditional three-by-five format. The “Heat ‘Em Up” logo is a jackpot symbol for eight levels of progressive jackpot. Five or more scattered logo symbols at max bet wins a progressive, with reset levels ranging from $15 for five symbols to the top $10,000 for 12 or more.

There also are arrow symbols in the main reel array. Two or more arrow symbols on the main reels activate the Sky Reels on the top monitor. Each arrow displays a number (4, 5, or 6), indicating how high the arrow will fly to activate positions on the corresponding Sky Reel. Once the Sky Reels are activated by the arrows, the spin is evaluated—providing a chance for a big win, a bonus trigger or even one of the eight progressives.

The Sky Reels activate up to 60 additional paylines, and the top and bottom reel arrays combine for assembling logo symbols toward one of the progressives.

Four bonus scatter symbols trigger the “Power Up Bonus,” which displays a tower of four colorful wheels on the top Skybox screen. Players are invited to spin the first wheel, each slice of the wheel showcasing instant credit awards, with the hopes to land on a Power Up slice to move up to the next wheel—credit awards increasing as the tower is climbed.
