Vegas Rise offers a base 50-line video slot on a five-reel, three-row layout, with a minimum 50-credit bet. Reels 3, 4 and 5 can randomly expand to three, four or six rows of symbols, respectively, adding more paylines.

For a top bet of 150 credits per spin, a seventh row of symbols is activated, after which on any spin, the player can match up five jackpot symbols corresponding to three progressive jackpots, the top Supreme prize a linked jackpot resetting at $10,000. The top symbol line also includes various bonus credit prizes.

The Maxi Jackpot resets at $3,000, the Mega at $1,000. These stand-alone progressives also are available in the fifth and sixth rows of the expanded reel array.
