Regal Riches

This game on IGT’s premium CrystalCurve cabinet features what is being called the industry’s first “progressive wilds.”

The base game is a five-reel, 30-line video slot. A unique mystery event called “Progressive Wilds Free Games” allows players to collect different-colored gem symbols to increase the Minor, Major or Mega wild free games pots.

The feature begins with the blue free-games pot, awarding 10 free games including 10 scattered wild symbols. When yellow, purple or green gems land on the fifth reel, they transform into wilds and are collected in the three progressive free game meters at the top of the screen. Two free game symbols on reels one through four, plus any colored free games symbol on reel five, awards the corresponding Wild Free Games meter.

When the guaranteed wilds feature is about to be awarded, a “super anticipation” takes over the screen with graphics and sounds generating excitement.

In the free-spin feature, special gem symbols increment the number of wild symbols in Minor, Major and Mega Free Games pots. When triggered, the feature will award the corresponding number of wilds for that pot, and distribute these wilds across 10 free games in an explosion of wild placements that can result in huge wins.

A multiplier is also awarded if more than one wild symbol lands in the same position.
