Ultimate Fire Link

This game on L&W’s new Cosmic cabinet is a five-reel ways-to-win game in a novel configuration—first two reels have four symbols, reels 3 and 4 have six symbols, and the fifth reel has eight symbols. In this configuration, there are 4,608 ways to win on each spin. Inaugural games are Cash Falls and China Street.

There are four jackpots—static prizes of $10 (Mini) and $50 (Minor), and progressives resetting at $500 (Major) and $10,000 (Mega).

The base game features a hold-and-spin bonus triggered by fireball symbols. Every fireball is held as a cash-on-reels symbol, and a three-spin counter begins for re-spins.

A special gold Ultra Fire Link fireball on a full reel triggers the Ultimate Fire Link spin. The reel array expands to eight symbols on all reels, and all fireballs are held as cash-on-reels symbols for a re-spin.

Both hold-and-spin features include jackpot icons as well as the cash-on-reels symbols. One or more jackpots can be added to the total hold-and-spin bonus.

There also is a free-spin bonus, played on the base-game array with a multiplier wheel spinning above the reels. Any jackpots in the free games can be multiplied by up to 5X.

The game is available in penny through $10 denominations. The maximum bet adjusts accordingly.
