The Fates

This new video slot on IGT’s CrystalDual dual-screen cabinet debuts a new game feature called “Lucky Spot” that provides enhancements to base-game play.

The base game is a five-reel, 27-line video slot with a choice to the operator of cost to cover—50 credits for the 15,000-credit top award; 10 credits for the 3,000-credit top prize. IGT officials say this operator-configurable cost-to-cover allows for flexibility in game placement, to appeal to multiple player segments.

At the beginning of play, the player is given the option to choose a section of the third reel as his or her “Lucky Spot.”

When a feature symbol lands in the chosen Lucky Spot, the player is awarded one of three base-game features, which include random multipliers, character and wild-symbol scatter-pays or wild reels. There also is an innovative free-game bonus with a video-game-style twist: When the free-game bonus is triggered, it lasts until four “capture” symbols occur. According to the manufacturer, this goes up to an unlimited number of free games, theoretically.

Manufacturer: International Game Technology
Platform: AVP
Format: Five-reel, 27-line video slot
Denomination: .01, .02, .05 (operator-configurable)
Top Award: 15,000, 3,000
Hit Frequency: 33%
Theoretical Hold: 2%-12.5%
