Jin Ji Bao Xi: Rising Fortunes

This slot, on the new TwinStar Wave XL cabinet, is the latest entry in the Jin Ji Bao Xi series of games showcasing beautiful Asian imagery and volatile game features. Rising Fortunes features a five-reel, 243-ways-to-win base game with a two-level external progressive. Top jackpot amounts reset at $2,000 times the denomination for the Major and $20,000 times the denomination for the top Grand prize. Available denominations range from a penny version all the way to $100.

The progressives are won through a Jackpot Bonus event, which can be triggered randomly on any base game spin containing one or more wild symbols. A field of 12 gold coin symbols appears, and the player is prompted to pick to reveal Mini Bonus ($15), Minor Bonus ($500), Treasure Major or Fortune Grand symbols. The player picks until matching three symbols to win.

During base game play, six or more scattered Red Gong symbols trigger a Feature Selection screen, awarding the sum of the values displayed on the symbols. If at least one position does not contain a Red Gong symbols, the player picks between the Top Up Bonus and the Free Game Bonus. If all positions are filled, the player is awarded the Minor Bonus plus Free Games Bonus if playing less than 36 credits, or the Fortune Grand Jackpot plus Free Games Bonus if playing 36 credits or more.

The Top Up Bonus awards six spins. All Red Gong symbols triggered at the start of the feature will be held in place during the bonus. All remaining positions will continue to spin, and possibly land a Gold Gong or Green Gong symbol. Each Gong symbol landed during the bonus will award the respective value.

The Free Games Bonus—triggered by 15 Gong symbols in the base game as well as during the Feature Selection—awards eight free spins. Three or more scattered Gong symbols on a spin awards and additional three free games. A random “Shou Bonus” during the free games awards the sum of all Gold Gong symbol values on the reels.
