James Bond: Live and Let Die

This latest entry in Scientific Games’ James Bond franchise is based on the 1973 film Live and Let Die, which featured a New Orleans backdrop and venomous assassins. It is showcased on the unique Gamefield 2.0 cabinet, which features a curved 43-inch monitor positioned horizontally facing the player, like a pinball display (the “game field”) leading to a landscape (horizontally positioned) 43-inch top monitor.

Live and Let Die features footage from the film weaved into a collection of unique bonus events. There are four levels of progressive jackpot plus two static awards. The game is available in near-area and wide-area versions. The top prize on the near-area version resets at $10,000. In the wide-area progressive, the top jackpot starts at $400,000 when connected to SG’s Cash Connection link, or $200,000 on the Reel Adventures link.

The base game is a five-reel, 25-line video slot. Larger bets result in larger base-game wins and better upgrades in the bonus Chip Feature.

Six or more scattered chip symbols trigger the Chip Feature. The player is awarded one “Chip Respin,” or two Chip Respins and a chip upgrade when making the Chip Feature Upgrade bet. Each chip symbol that lands on the screen during the initial trigger will hold in place for the duration of the feature. During the feature, an alternate set of reels is used which contains only White, Red, Black and Gold Chip symbols. Players are awarded a Chip Respin where the unlocked positions will re-spin, possibly landing more chip symbols.

After all Respins and Chip Upgrades are complete, the remaining chips will award prizes up to 15,000 credits.

The Voodoo Free Spins feature, triggered at the end of the Bonus Respin, awards seven, 14 or 25 free spins. This feature can also be triggered during the Chip Feature and Wheel Bonus. Each Voodoo symbol landed during the bonus awards one additional free spin.

In the Tarot Bonus, players pick from a field of 12 card symbols to reveal one of four symbols corresponding to the four top progressive jackpots. Players pick until matching three symbols.

Scattered bonus symbols on two or more reels expand to fill each column with bonus symbols.

During the base game, if the player lands three or more bonus symbols, free games are awarded. If scattered bonus symbols on two or more reels expand to fill each column with bonus symbols, they lock and the player gets a re-spin with bonus-symbol-only reels.

If one or more bonus symbols land, the player is awarded free spins. During the free spins, the reels may randomly expand and/or have random wilds added to the reels. At the end of the bonus, the game goes back to the base game. However, if the free spins were awarded by the Chip Feature, the free-spin bonus is played, and then any further events in the chip feature occur before returning to the base game.
