Red Silk

This latest game on the AGS Orion Portrait cabinet is part of the Ultimate Choice Jackpots series. It features a free-spin feature with sticky wild reels and a progressive picking bonus, all draped in a nocturnal blue and red scene that provides a striking backdrop on the tall Orion flat-screen, high-definition monitor.

The base game is a five-reel, 75-line video slot. In a primary-game bonus feature, collecting two gold coins on one reel triggers the Wild Reel Bonus, in which all three spots on the triggering reel turn into wild symbols. The wild reel “sticks” for the subsequent two spins.

Three or more bonus symbols trigger the free-spin bonus. During free spins, landing a single coin symbol triggers the Wild Reel feature.

Finally, a mystery trigger enacts the Jackpot Pick Bonus. The screen displays 10 lanterns, and the player picks one to reveal a credit prize or one of three progressive jackpots, all substantial amounts—resets are $100, $500 and the top $8,000.
