Royal Phoenix


Royal Phoenix

This new game is featured on the AGS Orion 49 Curve cabinet, with its 49-inch curved portrait-style monitor. The base game is a 50-line video slot on a four-by-five layout (five reels, four rows of symbols per reel).

There are two main bonus features. The free-spin event, awarding six or more free spins with a trigger of three or more bonus symbols, includes a unique “Dropping Wild” feature. During the free spins, if three or more wild symbols land on reels 2 through 5, the wilds drop to the bottom spots on the reels and remain there for the rest of the feature. Reel one locks and keeps on spinning while reels 2-5 continue to spin until no more wilds land. Reel 1 then stops spinning and the wins are evaluated.

There are five levels of progressive jackpot, won through a progressive bonus event. When the event is triggered, the reels transform into a setup with only jackpot symbols and blanks. Each of the jackpot symbols has a color corresponding to one of the progressives. Each time a Jackpot symbol lands on the reels, it drops to a stack depicted below the reels. Once one or more of the five reels fills to the top with four jackpot symbols, the bonus ends and awards all the jackpots corresponding to reels with four stacked symbols.
