Mammoth Wilds

Ainsworth Game Technology

Mammoth Wilds

This is the latest game in Ainsworth’s Fire$torm series, featured on the tall A560 SL cabinet. (Other games in the series are Buffalo Rumble II and Rhino Rumble.) The base game is a five-reel video slot available in either 40-line or 50-line setup. The tall vertical top-box monitor displays four progressive jackpot levels, with the top resetting at ,000.

The main bonus is a multi-level free-game event, that increases in value depending on what symbols land on the free spins, which are augmented by a bonus sixth reel. The bonus reel contains only four symbols—X2, X3, X5 and “Mammoth Mania.”

Three or more scattered diamond symbols trigger eight

free games, called “Mammoth Wilds.”  Above each reel on the bonus reel set is the “Mammoth Mania” logo. During the free spins, when the logo appears on any reel, the corresponding logo is activated for all remaining free games. When the logo appears on the bonus reel, the Mammoth Mania Wild symbol replaces all logo symbols on the screen for all remaining free games.

During the final free game, “Mammoth Mania Wild” replaces all symbols on all reels where a corresponding Mammoth Mania logo is active.

During the Fire$torm Feature, present on all games in this series, any three or more “Diamond Wild” symbols will accumulate three free bonus games. During the bonus games, the bonus reel contains X2, X3 and X5 only. During each bonus game, “Mammoth Mania Wild” replaces all symbols on all reels where a corresponding Mammoth Mania logo is active.
