Scarab Grand


Scarab Grand

This new game on IGT’s CrystalCurve cabinet features beautiful high-definition graphics and artwork based on the original Scarab video slot and a game mechanic using a persistent-style bonus feature.

The base game is a five-reel, 75-line video slot on a reel array with six spaces per reel. The central feature is a 10-spin sequence in which the player collects scarab symbols. When a scarab symbol lands anywhere on the reels, it initiates the “Wild Stays Charges Then Pays” feature. The scarab space turns gold, and a 10-spin clock begins. As play continues, each additional scarab symbol turns gold. After the 10th spin, all gold symbols turn into wild symbols for a potentially big win.

The game title comes from what happens if you fill all spots on the screen with one symbol—it triggers a $1,000 win.

The free games bonus is triggered by three or more pyramid symbols. Players can select their bonus play volatility by choosing 20 free games with seven random wilds, 12 free games with 10 random wilds or five free games with 15 random wilds.

The game features a 100-credit cost to cover.
