Wealth of Coins: Golden Happiness

This new game on Aruze’s Muso Curve 43 cabinet features four progressive jackpots and a unique reel array.

The base game is a five-reel, 34-line video slot presented on a 6-7-7-7-6 array (six symbols on the outer reels and seven symbols each on the three inner reels).

During primary-game play, when one or more the “bag of gold” wild symbols land, it can randomly trigger one of several wild features or a Jackpot Feature bonus game that leads to one of the four progressives, which have reset levels of $10 (Mini), $25 (Minor), $800 (Major) and $10,000 (Grand).

The wild features are Random Wild, in which up to six randomly determined symbol positions on reels 1, 2 and 5 and up to 7 symbols on reels three and four change to the wild symbol, and the pay is re-evaluated. In Wild Swap, any position with a royal symbol changes to a wild symbol. In Reels Wild, all symbol positions on two to three reels change to wild symbols.

In the Jackpot Feature, the screen transforms into a field of 12 gold discs. The player selects discs until matching three symbols corresponding to one of the four jackpots.

There also is a separate free-game feature. Three or more scattered money sacks trigger eight free games.
