Tiger Magic

Cadillac Jack has marked its continuing expansion into Class III from its traditional Class II markets with several new game styles. One of them is a 50-line video slot product, available in two separate titles. There are four initial titles in the initial release, which is covering select markets in the U.S. and Mexico.

Tiger Magic is one of those titles. The 50-line base game includes stacked wild symbols, and there is a free-spin bonus. The player covers two paylines with each credit wagered.

When the Taj Mahal symbol lands scattered on the first, third and fifth reels, the player is awarded 10 free spins. During the free spins, the peacock, elephant and sultan symbols are replaced by the tiger symbol, which results in stacked symbols and multiple wins. The bonus round can be re-triggered during the free spins.

Cadillac Jack is making this available in both Class II and Class III versions, and in penny, 2-cent, nickel, dime and quarter denominations. The program features low volatility, and players can wager up to 10 credits for every two lines.

While operators will like the low volatility, players should line up for the high average wins. 

All of the new games in this series feature play styles the company launched last year, “SpeedPLAY” and “PlusPLAY.”

SpeedPLAY is an optional mode for the player that cuts out nearly all the animation of spinning reels to go directly to the result of each spin. The player simply touches the screen to cut to the chase for the result of the spin.

PlusPLAY is designed to reward players with random bonus events in exchange for extended play.
