Sapphire Wins


Sapphire Wins

This new 40-line game on the sleek Icon cabinet is a follow-up to the high-performing Asian-themed Jade Wins and Golden Wins games. The newest addition to the “Wins” family, Sapphire Wins, features high and mid symbols in “lucky gold.”

The game’s two main features are free spins with a volatility picker and a Progressive Pick. Bonus symbols on the three middle reels trigger the free-spins bonus, which awards eight, 12 or 20 free spins with various multipliers up to 100X applied to wins. Free Spins can be won again during the Free Spins Bonus at the current volatility.

Using the PowerXStream pay evaluation, the five-reel, 40-line game offers hundreds of ways to win, and features a four-level progressive jackpot, part of the Da Ji Da Li Progressives series.

The Progressive Pick Bonus is triggered randomly when at least one bonus symbol lands. Players pick for jackpots including a Mini resetting at $10, a Minor starting at $25, a Major starting at $800, or the top Grand jackpot, which resets at $10,000.
