Imperial 88: Tiger Lord


Imperial 88: Tiger Lord

This new game on the Orion Portrait cabinet is themed around a Chinese lord character, presented in colorful artwork on the high-definition, flat-screen monitor. The game features a four-level progressive triggered through one of three separate bonus events.

The base game is a ways-to-win scatter setup in the PowerXStream series. Wins through adjacent symbols on the four-by-five reel array feature combinations centered around the game’s two main characters, the lord and his tiger.

Bonus events include a free-spin bonus, a “Hold and Win” bonus and the progressive event, called the Imperial Jackpot Bonus.

Three scattered bonus symbols trigger eight free spins, along with a credit award according to how many triggering symbols landed. If a wild symbol appears on a reel in a free spin, all symbols on that reel become wild. Three bonus symbols trigger an additional eight free spins. Either of the other two bonus events can be triggered on a free spin.

Six or more prize symbol in any position trigger the Hold and Win Bonus. The prize symbols that initiated the bonus lock in place and all other positions re-spin an initial five times. Additional prizes lock into position during the spin, which also can reveal “Instant Win,” or 2X and 8X multipliers. Additional prizes also reset the free spins to five.

The Imperial Jackpot bonus reveals a screen of coins, which are touched to reveal any of the four jackpots. Matching three jackpot symbols wins that amount, including a top progressive resetting at $10,000.
