High Voltage Blackout

This new game on Everi’s Core HDX cabinet features unique visual effects in a bonus that depicts a big-city blackout. The base game in High Voltage Blackout is a five-reel, 40-line video slot with a mystery re-spin feature. Random winning combinations trigger the reels to re-spin one or more times, with each re-spin a guaranteed winning spin.

Some of the winning symbols are marked as “Lightning Multiplier” symbols. When part of a winning combination, the symbol multiplies the pay up to 50X.

The main feature is called the Blackout Bonus. When it is triggered, the game’s top screen displays a silhouetted skyline with 24 buildings, while the bottom screen shows a field of 28 pick buttons from which players choose. Each pick “powers up” anywhere from two to six buildings, awarding “supercharged credits” to some players.

Players also receive credit awards for powering up all like-colored buildings—pink awards 15 times the total bet, blue awards 25 times the total bet and green awards 50 times the total bet. If the full skyline is powered up, players receive an additional award of 100 times the total bet.
