Lucky Bao Bei

This new Class II game, available on any of the IMPACT series of cabinets, features a primary-game wild symbol feature and two free-spin features, as well as a progressive bonus round that can lead to one of three progressive jackpots—a Minor resetting at $100, a Major resetting at $300, or a Grand resetting at $2,500.

The base game is a 50-line video slot on a four-by-five reel array (four rows of symbols on five reels). There is a unique “Wild Stack Mirror” feature that can randomly occur when stacked wild symbols land on the first, third and fifth reels. Each stack mirrors itself on the reel next to it with the possibility of covering all five reels with wilds to trigger the top line award.

There are two separate free-spin features. Scattered bonus symbols on the the first, third and fifth reels randomly trigger one of the two bonus games.

One, called the Wild Pays 10 Free Spins bonus, features stacked and locked wild reels that alternate with each spin. The second bonus is the Rising Pay Multiplier Bonus, in which each free spin is awarded a higher multiplier, rising from 2X to 8X within the feature.

The Progressive Pick’Em Scatter feature, also triggered with scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5, reveals a field of 20 gongs which hide icons representing a fixed credit prize of $37.50 and the three jackpots. Three of the same icon award a fixed prize or a Minor ackpot; four of the same icon award the Major progressive, and five matching symbols return the Grand.
