Power Boost Inferno

This unique progressive video slot on Konami’s dual-screen Concerto cabinet is centered around a mystery bonus event on a multi-level wheel display that can lead to one of five progressive jackpots.

The top Supreme Jackpot, resetting at $5,000, is a linked progressive. The other four, with resets ranging from $20 to $200, are stand-alone prizes.

The base game is a five-reel, 30-line video slot on Konami’s KP3+ platform. At the start, the player has the option to raise the wager for easier shots at progressives. The main bonus display consists of three concentric wheels. When the mystery bonus is triggered, pointers spin around the circumference of the wheel to land on various credit amounts, jackpot slices or arrows that move the bonus amounts to a higher level.

The player can choose extra bet levels that increase the number of pointers surrounding the wheel display. Extra bet levels of 10, 20, 30, 50 or 100 credits cause one, two, three, five or 10 arrows, respectively, to activate for the progressive bonus.

The concentric wheels surround a center spot marked for the Supreme Jackpot. During the bonus, the pointers spin to land on various slices, with the possibility of two pointers landing on the same slice. If two pointers land on a progressive, the player is awarded the accumulated value plus the reset value of that jackpot.

A pointer landing on the arrow slice moves the player to the next inner wheel, and higher awards. If the player gets to the innermost wheel and lands on an arrow, the top progressive is awarded.
