Rumble Rumble Bear

This new video slot on Ainsworth’s premium A640 cabinet features a curved-reel display above the main reel array that can transform from one to all base-game symbols into wild symbols.

The base five-reel game is available in configurations of 30, 40 or 50 paylines. There is an optional two-level mystery progressive jackpot, both “must-win-by” prizes that display the level at which they are guaranteed to hit.

Rumble Rumble Bear is in what Ainsworth calls its “Curved Reel Series.” Above the five-reel, three-row array is a row of five reels on a curved arc, with one spot each in the base game and two in the free-spin bonus.

In the primary game, when “Spin” appears anywhere on the fifth reel, it triggers the Single Curved Reel Feature. The top reel spins, and any spot landing the “Wild Bear” symbol transforms a random number of spots on the corresponding reel in the main array into either a “Wild Bison” or “Wild Coin” symbol.

Three or more scattered coin symbols in the primary game trigger eight free spins. During free games, a special symbol on reel five triggers the Double Curved Reel Spin. The curved reel above the array splits in two, for two separate spins and double the chance of transforming main-game symbols wild for a reassessment, resulting in the potential for an entire screen of wild symbols.
