Scarab Ultra


Scarab Ultra

Scarab Ultra is the latest iteration of Scarab, one of IGT’s most successful titles on dual-screen cabinets. It delivers everything players expect from the original game with an all-new jackpot playoff with a guaranteed jackpot win.

The base game is a five-reel, 75-line video slot. Housed on the state-of-the-art CrystalCurve Ultra cabinet, Scarab Ultra features a new animated Golden Scarab symbol that initiates multiple golden frames during play. In the base game, players have 10 games to land a Scarab symbol on the reels. When the Scarab symbol is landed, it turns the position into a golden spot.

After the 10th wagered game, each collected golden spot turns into a wild for the “Wild Stays Charges Then Pays” feature that can lead to huge wins.

After three or more pyramid symbols land, the free game selection screen is activated and offers three player-selectable options for the opportunity to play for more spins or more wild positions.

Finally, when three or more golden coin symbols land, the jackpot playoff is triggered, and players can win one of five different progressive jackpots. Scarab Ultra is an 80-credit cost-to-cover game.
