Royal Roses

This new game in Multimedia’s High Rise series features an eight-level ladder of progressive jackpots that is climbed thanks to a unique use of wild symbols.

The base game is a five-reel (four spaces per reel), 40-line video slot featuring frequent stacked symbols and stacked wild symbols. When three or more bonus trigger symbols land scattered on the reels, 10 free spins are triggered. Additional stacked wilds are added to the reels for the free spins.

There also is a picking bonus, triggered with bonus symbols on the first, third and fifth reels. A rose bush appears on the screen, and players are prompted to “pick” roses from the bush until a bouquet of five roses is formed. Along the way, roses either award bonus credits or a “leveling up,” which produces more roses worth more credits. A maximum of 3,400 credits is possible in the bonus if all level-up symbols are uncovered.

The progressive bonus is activated at max bet. When the bonus is active, when five or more wilds appear on the screen that do not contribute to a win on any payline on the reels, they become “2nd Chance Wilds,” which correspond to the progressive jackpots on the top-box ladder. The eight progressives range from a reset of $20 for five 2nd Chance Wild symbols to the top jackpot, resetting at $2,000, for landing 12 2nd Chance Wild symbols on the 20-space reel screen.
