Rakin’ Bacon! Odyssey


Rakin’ Bacon! Odyssey

This new entry to the popular Rakin’ Bacon franchise, on the new Spectra J-curved portrait cabinet, features free games with expanding reels and a progressive pick feature leading to one of four prizes.

The base game is a five-reel, three-row video slot in a 243-ways-to-win format. The game reprises the piggy-bank pot feature from the original Rakin’ Bacon!, in which the golden pig grows fatter with each pig symbol on the reels until bursting to trigger free games or a progressive bonus.

The free-games feature takes place on an expanded reel set, beginning with six rows of symbols. Every time an arrow medallion lands during the feature, the reels expand, up to a maximum of 10 rows. At the full expansion, there are 7,776 ways to win on each spin.

The Progressive Pick Feature, also triggered via the pot-collection mechanic, displays 12 “Mystery Pigs” hiding jackpot icons. The player picks pigs until matching three jackpot symbols. The jackpots, all progressive, reset at $10 (Mini), $50 (Minor), $800 (Major) and $10,000 (Grand).

The game includes all the icons and Easter eggs of the original with the backdrop of classic Greek pillars.
