Huckleberry Finn

Ainsworth Game Technology

Huckleberry Finn

This is the first of three games to be released on Ainsworth’s new “Cash Odyssey” series of games on the new A600 cabinet. All three games are based on literary classics—the other two are Gulliver’s Travels and Robinson Crusoe.

The manufacturer is making Cash Odyssey games available in a variety of configurations, with packages including high-definition overhead LCD screens, a media controller and a progressive controller. Four-game, six-game and eight-game banks are available in seven different configurations.

Huckleberry Finn is a five-reel, 30-line video slot featuring a four-level progressive jackpot. Progressives are won through various combinations of “Cash Odyssey Jackpot” symbols in the red-bordered center position on reels 2 and 4. The top progressive, resetting at $10,000 in the penny version, is awarded when those two red-bordered symbols flank a “Gold Globe” symbol on the third reel.

The Mini jackpot is awarded when Cash Odyssey Jackpot appears in either of the blue-bordered top or bottom reel positions on reel 2 and either of the blue-bordered top or bottom reel positions on reel 4.

The Minor jackpot is awarded when Cash Odyssey Jackpot appears in either of the blue-bordered top or bottom reel positions on reel 2 and in the red-bordered center position on reel 4. The Major jackpot is awarded when Cash Odyssey Jackpot appears in either of the blue-bordered top or bottom reel positions on reel 4 and in the red-bordered center position on reel 2.

A free-spin feature is triggered by three or more scattered logos. Eight free games are awarded, with five more tacked on for two or more scattered logos on a free spin. Also during the free-spin feature, if Cash Odyssey or Cash Odyssey Jackpot appears on only one of reel 2 or 4, a Respin Feature is triggered. The jackpot symbol stays in place while all other reels are re-spun once.
