One Red Cent Deluxe

This is a unique multi-level progressive on Multimedia’s new “High Rise” cabinet, which, with a 37-inch vertical top box, is promoted as the industry’s tallest top-box video display on a stand-alone machine.

In this case, the top box displays five progressive jackpots, with reset levels ranging from $5 to the top prize starting at $2,000. Winning the progressives is a simple proposition. The base game is a nine-reel setup. At first glance, it looks like a three-reel game, but each of the nine symbols is actually a complete reel for the purposes of the game.

The “One Cent Red Deluxe” symbol is the trigger for the progressive. When landing on four reels, it returns a win of 160 credits times the line bet. However, on five to nine reels, the symbols trigger one of the progressives. The game-title symbol on all nine reel spots returns the top prize.

There also is a separate picking bonus, triggered by three penny symbols on the seventh payline. When that happens, a giant penny rolls across the main video screen to turn all symbols into doors. The player is prompted to pick doors to reveal a nickel, dime or quarter—which translates into a multiplier of 5X, 10X or 25X, applied to the total bet as a bonus.

The multipliers are added together as the player picks. You keep picking doors until you reveal a penny instead of one of the other coins—that ends the bonus, and the accumulated multiplier is applied to the bet for the bonus.

One more twist: Every 50 bonus events, on average, the giant penny will spin until revealing a 100X multiplier.
