Novomatic Americas


This new game on Novomatic’s Dominator Curve cabinet includes a unique path toward one of five jackpots displayed on the top of the monitor.

The Dominator Curve’s giant curved LCD monitor displays a comic-book-style array of characters and “Pop!” icons. The base game is a five-reel, 40-line video slot featuring frequent wild symbols. Just above the reel array are two “Jackpot Reels” that can only be activated with an extra wager. They come into play with respect to the five top “JackPOP!” jackpots.

Two “Pop!” symbols on the reels return the $2 prize; four Pop! symbols win $10; five symbols, $20. There is only one “Pop!” symbol per reel, so the player must activate one Jackpot Reel to land six “Pop!” symbols to win the $100 JackPOP!, and must activate both Jackpot Reels to win the top prize, with a reset level configurable by the casino.

The prizes become more frequent during the free spin round, triggered by bonus symbols on the first, third and fifth reels. The player is awarded seven initial free spins. During each free spin, one random reel contains only wild symbols, “Pop!” and “+2 Free Spins.” Free spins are added to the meter as the latter symbol lands, extending the bonus round, and the extra “Pop!” and wild symbols increase the win frequency for the players.
