Queen of Wonderland

This new video slot uses the program math of the popular “Gold Dragon Red Dragon” game to create a volatile new mystery-progressive slot featuring many of the most popular AGS features—notably, “Fierce Factor” and “PowerXStream.”

Fierce Factor is a feature that raises the pays with higher bets—the pay-table amounts rise with the wager. PowerXStream is a scatter-pay reel setup with four spots on each of the inner three reels and three spots on each of the outer reels.

The five-reel setup results in 576 possible winning combinations on each spin. Wins are registered through adjacent symbols; there are no paylines. The wins count regardless of where the combination starts—left-to-right or right-to-left. The theme centers around the queen of hearts, which is the highest-paying symbol. The game also features wild symbols on the middle three reels.

The base game also includes the AGS “Streaming Stacks” feature, in which a random symbol is selected prior to each spin to appear in a stack. This includes the wild symbol, for the periodic appearance of wild reels to boost the win.

Scattered bonus symbols on the middle reels trigger eight free spins. The free-game feature can be retriggered within the feature, up to a maximum of 128 free spins.

Finally, the game features a two-level mystery progressive. On any given spin, the player can be awarded a second-tier jackpot resetting at $200 or a top jackpot resetting at $4,000. Both are “Must Hit By” jackpots. As displayed on the screen, the lower-level jackpot must hit by the time it reaches $500. The top jackpot must hit by $5,000. This adds a dose of jackpot fever as each meter approaches its must-hit-by level.
