This is one of the inaugural games on Incredible Technologies’ Prism VXP cabinet, which uses a commercial grade motor to cause a giant 55-inch flat-screen monitor to physically raise and lower to enable different game features. There is a main game screen and an oversized button deck that serves as a third monitor, but during bonus game play, the 55-inch monitor physically rises, adding 13 inches to the height of the display.
The Ultra Rush game family has been a big hit for IT, with players flocking to Ultra Rush and Ultra Rush Gold, which feature fantasy Asian warrior characters and a lock-and-spin bonus feature.
The new version, Ultra Rush Gold X, takes that hold-and-re-spin bonus to a new level with the vertical expansion of the reels.
The base game is a five-reel, 30-line format with three rows of symbols. Five scattered bonus symbols—there are three different symbols that can work together—trigger the Ultra Rush Bonus. The triggering symbols—pearls, gold pearls and wheels—lock in place for three free spins. Each time another of the scatters lands, the spin count returns to three. Three spins without any scatters ends the feature, awarding the accumulated bonus. Filling the screen with the symbols triggers a wheel spin for a guaranteed progressive.
For the new “X” version, the big monitor physically moves upward to add more rows of symbols to the reel grid. Each symbol with a green arrow adds a row of symbols, with the motor moving the big monitor upward. If you pick the 5-cent or 10-cent denominations from the multiple-denomination lineup, the grid can rise to nine rows. That can result in huge credit awards in the lock-and-spin feature.
