This latest game on Konami’s KP3 operating system is one of the slot-maker’s “Xtra Reward” games. This is a series of video slots offering extra bonus features or wild symbols in exchange for an extra ante wager.
The minimum bet to activate the Xtra Reward feature is 30 credits—one credit per line plus a 10-credit ante wager. The feature comes to play in the base game. On random spins, a number of adjacent symbols are replaced with one symbol. All replacement positions are filled with the same symbol, making line wins more probable.
When the same symbol appears in every position on the first reel with Xtra Reward activated, at least one of the remaining four reels is selected at random and replaced with the symbol appearing on the first reel, leading to likely multiple winning combinations.
There also is a free game feature, including a special feature called “Balance of Fortune.” When three, four or five “Mark” symbols land, the player is awarded five, 10 or 15 free games, respectively. All wins are doubled during free spins, and the feature can be re-triggered within the free spins.
When the free-game round is triggered, the player can select the Balance of Fortune feature by pressing “Credit Prize.” The player will then be awarded a random credit amount instead of the free spins.
The player also can select Credit Prize at any point during the free-game round to exchange the remaining free spins for a credit award, providing at least 20 free games remain. On average, the award is greater when more free games are exchanged for a bonus award. The minimum award value is 15; the maximum is 85,200 credits for each credit wagered per line.
