Sky Dragons

Incredible Technologies

This game is on Incredible Technologies’ new V55 cabinet, the vertical 55-inch portrait monitor used for an expanding reel feature that grows the reel set up to seven rows.

The base game is a five-reel, 243-ways-to-win video slot. A mystery feature surrounds the two “Sky Dragons” depicted hovering above the reels. When one swoops down to the reels, the reel array can expand up to a five-by-seven grid. In this expanded reel setup, called “Scatter Ways,” the seven-row grid yields a total of 25,000 ways to win on every spin.

The player-favorite “Mystery Slide” feature is activated when one or more “pearl reveal” scatters land on the reels. The silver Sky Dragon can then drop more pearls onto the reels for big wins.

The Sky Dragons work as a pair, as the red dragon expands the reel set by one row, so long as one additional pearl is added by the silver dragon. Once the reels have grown to their maximum size of five-by-seven or no more pearls are added, the Mystery Slide spins to select a symbol to replace all pearl scatters, creating potential for big wins.

Up to 20 free spins are triggered by three or more Free Spins scatters. The Mystery Slide and lucky Sky Dragons are still active during free spins.

Landing “Lightning Bolt Scatters” can lead to wins of one of four progressive jackpots, aptly named Rumble, Boom, Crash and Thunder. The top Thunder jackpot resets at $6,000.
