This new Asian-themed video slot is in the AGS “PowerXStream” series of ways-to-win games. The series features several novel reel configurations, but Jade Wins uses a traditional three-by-five screen (three symbols per row on five reels). There are no paylines, and wins are registered by adjacent symbols, resulting in 243 possible ways to win on every spin. Wins are triggered by both left-to-right and right-to-left symbol combinations.
The game includes a four-level progressive displayed on the top screen. The top jackpot is a wide-area progressive on the Da Ji Da Li link from AGS, resetting at $10,000.
Progressives are won through a picking bonus. Each displayed jackpot (starting with the Mini resetting at $10) has a corresponding “Fu Baby” character. When the picking bonus is triggered, the player picks from a field of icons until matching three Fu Babies to win the corresponding jackpot.
There also is a free-spin bonus event, triggered by bonus or wild symbols on two or more adjacent reels. Ten free spins are awarded, and the free-spin bonus can be retriggered within the feature.
The progressives are displayed on the tall top box of the AGS Genesis and Icon cabinets, framed in different colors on the top LCD. The new Icon, a combination of technology developed by AGS after acquisition of Georgia-based Cadillac Jack, features a unique curved, ergonomically friendly button panel.
