Lucky Buddha


Lucky Buddha

This new game on IGT’s CrystalDual 27 cabinet features a unique

repeating-win primary game bonus event. It is a colorful game built around Asian images and the main symbol, a laughing golden Buddha.

The base game is a five-reel video slot available either as a 30-line game with a 60-credit cost to cover or a 10-line game with a 20-credit cost to cover. Random winning spins will trigger a new game mechanic called “Repeating Win Multipliers.” After a win, the winning symbols are added to the top of the reels, each with an assigned multiplier. That multiplier will apply to any wins involving the same symbol over the ensuing seven spins.

When the feature happens with the high-paying Buddha, green Dragon Turtle or Good Luck Cat symbols, the ensuing wins can be huge.

When three bonus symbols appear on the reels, players will spin a giant wheel to activate the wheel bonus. The bonus wheel offers players the chance to win credits, free games, progressives, and Repeating Win Multipliers.
