McGraw is presented on the imposing Arc Double cabinet, which allows for enhanced video footage and state-of-the-art audio of the performer’s greatest hits, including “Don’t Take the Girl,” “Down on the Farm,” “Refried Dreams” and his biggest hit, “I Like It, I Love It.”

The base game is in the “Reel Power” format, with no paylines, and wins registered through adjacent symbols. Tim

McGraw features a dual game set—two reel arrays stacked on top of each other on the giant Arc Double format. According to the company, the choice of the two game styles is designed to appeal to both entertainment and moderate-gambler-style players. Game 1 uses a three-by-five reel array offering 243 possible ways to win on each spin. Game 2 utilizes a four-by-five array, which is the “Xtra Reel Power” format featuring 1,024 ways to win and a more volatile experience.

The game has an all-new mechanic called “Picture Pays” that is inspired by Lightning Link, the popular Aristocrat progressive link featuring a multiple progressive jackpot triggered an average of every 100 spins, with the top Grand Jackpot hitting every 25 days on average.

Tim McGraw features a three-level progressive, with the top prize a multi-site progressive resetting at $500,000. The game adds a twist to the progressive setup, with “Hold & Spin” symbols offering extra chances to win one of the progressives.

Bonus features include a main Tim McGraw Wheel Feature and “Growin’ Up Country” free spins. A random “Reel Growth” feature expands the reel array to cover both screens with seven rows and up to 100,000 possible ways to win on each spin.
