Lightning Dollar Link

Aristocrat Gaming reprises one of its most popular game groups, as well as its much-copied “Hold & Spin” mechanic, in this new version of the Lightning Link series, Lightning Dollar Link.

Lightning Dollar Link gathers the best of Lightning Link, Dragon Link, Dollar Storm and Buffalo Link, and adds an experience that appeals to players across denominations and preferences.

Lightning Dollar Link offers lower denominations for core Hold & Spin players. The expanded denomination sets the range from penny to $5, creating appeal to low-denomination, mid-denomination, and high-denomination players in one game.

Lightning Dollar Link gives players more choices than ever as they select their line count. Lower-denomination players can choose to play a 50-line or 100-line game, while $5 denomination players can choose to play a five-line or 10-line configuration.

Lightning Dollar Link launches with four titles: Checkered Flag, Chica Bonita, Kung Fu Master and Corrida de Toros. All feature the popular Hold & Spin bonus, in which three free spins are awarded, and cash-on-reels symbols lock in place. Each additional cash symbol returns the spin count to three, and filling all spots with cash symbols returns the top Grand progressive, resetting at $10,000.

The other three jackpots also can appear in the Hold & Spin feature, including static prizes of $10 (Mini) and $50 (Minor), and a progressive resetting at $500 (Major).

In addition to the Hold & Spin bonus, Checkered Flag and Chica Bonita offer free games with the popular “Symbol Reveal” mechanic, and Raging Bull and Kung Fu Master offer free games with “Twin Spin” reels. Completely new added symbols in the Hold & Spin feature give players the chance to win a progressive jackpot value up to three times from a single Hold & Spin symbol.

Lightning Dollar Link is featured on the MarsX Portrait cabinet.
