Raise the Sails


Raise the Sails

Raise the Sales is one of a pair of sister games on IGT’s PeakSlant49 cabinet. (The partner game is San Xing Riches.) These two partner games combine top player-favorite features with unique art packages.

The base game for the pirate/treasure-themed Raise the Sails is a five-reel, 243-ways-to-win slot featuring three separate free game features. The base game features cash-on-reels symbols. When a “Collect” treasure chest symbol lands on reel five, all credit values on all reels are instantly awarded.

There are three progressive free-game features, two with expanded reel arrays. The free spins are triggered by a bronze, silver or gold coin along with a treasure chest symbol on the fifth reel.

The 19 Bronze free games play out on the standard three-by-five reel array, with 243 potential ways to win on each spin. The 28 Silver free spins occur on a four-by-five array, which results in 1,024 ways to win. The 16 Gold free spins are on a five-by-five interface, for 3,125 possible ways to win on each spin.

During the progressive free games, cash-on-reels symbols are joined by symbols representing the two jackpots, resetting at $250 (Minor) and $1,000 (Major).
