Ultra Stack Panda Instant Trigger

This new game on Aruze’s Muso Triple-27 cabinet centers around free games, with unique mini-bonus features affecting the return of two frequent free-game features.

The base game is a 50-line game on a five-by-four reel array. The two free-game features are either symbol-triggered or, at max bet, can also be triggered at random through an “Instant Trigger” mystery feature that instantly enacts one of the two free-spin features.

Outside of the instant trigger, three or more scattered “Feature” symbols trigger Panda Free Games. The feature begins with a “Mini Game” that presents five icons. The player selects one to reveal one of the main game symbols. During the free games, the reels contain a greater number of the symbol revealed in the Mini Game.

The player then is awarded eight free games on special reels containing only the revealed symbol from the Mini Game, the six poker symbols and the Feature symbol. During the free games, three or more scattered Feature symbols retrigger the feature for an additional eight free games using the same reels and Mini Game symbol.

Three or more scattered “Super Feature” symbols trigger Super Panda Free Games. These consist of a Mini Game, a wheel spin and eight free games on special reels, including the Mini Game symbol, poker symbols and the Super Feature symbol.

The symbols added to the reels by the Mini Game are increased further by the wheel spin. Three or more scattered Super Feature symbols in a free game retrigger the feature for another eight games using the same reel set and symbols.

The top jackpot of 10,000 credits times the bet multiplier is awarded when a special jackpot symbol lands on all 20 spots on the reel array.
