Ultra Stack Dragon

This is the latest game in Aruze’s “G-Series,” a group of video slots dedicated to the classic video-slot experience. To this end, the game concentrates on features that have been among the favorites to video slot enthusiasts—namely, stacked symbols, stacked wilds and lots of free spins.

The base game is a five-reel, 50-line video slot. The medium-volatility video slot uses program math to offer extended play time on a five-by-four configuration: five reels, four rows of symbols per reel (instead of the standard three). To this steady stream of winning combinations is added stacks of symbols which apply to the bonus game.

Scattered bonus symbols on the middle reels trigger Ultra Stack Free Games—eight free spins in which winning symbols and wild symbols stack on the reels for increased wins. Special reels are used in the bonus that include extra wild symbols. The feature can be re-triggered for more free games during the feature.

It all combines for a game that offers the player action, time on device and a frequent bonus with good win opportunities—a formula based on simplicity that has made the G-Series very popular with players.
