Herds of Wins

Herds of Wins, Konami’s latest game in the KP3 format, is a new Xtra Reward series title featuring a novel reel animation concept with stampeding 3D game symbols.

The game is based on a multi-line three-by-five layout, but transforms into a stacked-symbol layout using Konami’s “Action Stacked Symbols” when the player enters the bonus feature. The theme is a depiction of herds of elephants in the African wild, with reel symbols floating over a jungle clearing scene.

When gold-framed Action Stacked Symbols appear on all positions of two or more reels, the “Herds of Wins” feature is triggered. All remaining partially framed reels are nudged until all positions are framed and replaced with the same symbol.

After that, all framed reels slide to fill the left-most reels and the entire reel structure lays back in a 3D motion as the remaining right reel symbols begin charging toward the player in a unique animation sequence akin to a racing herd of animals. The symbols eventually slow and resulting formations are brought back to a 3-3-3-3-3 layout for traditional line awards.

Herds of Wins is available across Konami’s video cabinet lineup, including its classic Podium, SeleXion multi-game and extra-large Podium Goliath.
