Star Watch Magma

This unique new video slot makes full use of the 43-inch flat vertical monitor of the new Concerto Stack cabinet, or alternatively, the 43-inch curved vertical monitor of the new Concerto Crescent format.

The base game is available in several line configurations, with the main form being a five-reel, 60-line game. The top of the large vertical display is occupied by a lively, volcano-shaped bonus wheel and four prize displays—two static bonus displays and two progressives, each won through one of the bonus events.

In the primary game, Konami’s signature “Action Stacked Symbols” feature will replace a number of adjacent reel spots with the same symbol prior to each spin. A message to the player indicates better chances at higher jackpots are awarded for higher wagers.

Three, four or five Fireball symbols trigger eight, 12 or 20 free games, respectively. All wins are doubled during the free spins. If PRIZE lands on a reel inside a frame, after any line or scatter wins are paid, all reels with PRIZE are nudged until all positions on that reel display PRIZE. Each prize displayed in a frame is awarded.

The prize displayed on PRIZE is randomly selected from one of the following: CREDIT PRIZE, MINI BONUS, MAJOR BONUS, MEGA, MAXI or WHEEL. Each credit prize is randomly selected from 50 to 1,500. Each credit prize displayed on PRIZE is multiplied by the bet per line at the beginning of each spin. One spin on the wheel is awarded for each PRIZE WHEEL appearing on a reel in a frame. The player presses the spin button to spin the wheel to win Mini Bonus, Major Bonus, Mega or Maxi.

The Maxi progressive resets at $5,000; the Major at $500. The static bonus prizes are $100 for the Mini and $250 for the Major.
