Lift Off

This new game on Everi’s Flex Fusion premium banked platform is packed with special bank-wide primary-game features and two separate bonus events.

The base game is a five-reel, 30-line video slot. At any time during the primary game, the entire bank can launch into “Hyperdrive.” Occurring every 10 minutes on average, this feature—to the backdrop of Europe’s 1986 power ballad “The Final Countdown”—launches a mode in which frequently hitting cash-on-reels symbols build to a cumulative bonus award.

Randomly during the feature, the bank will go into a “Diamond Warp,” which features a rocket going through a wormhole to collect coins and diamonds for additional credits.

Three or more scatter symbols trigger up to 20 free spins, in which credit prizes, multipliers and extra free spins can be landed. There is a “Locomotion Wild” symbol that sticks after landing, and shifts position from spin to spin; and a “Starboard Wild” that displays an increasing multiplier.

Six to eight scattered coin symbols trigger Rocket Respins, a classic hold-and-re-spin feature. Triggering symbols remain locked in place as cash-on-reels symbols for three spins, and any additional coins reset the spin count to three. One of four jackpots also can be won during this feature—static wads of $15 (Mini) and $50 (Minor), and progressives resetting at $500 (Major) and $10,000 (Grand).
