White Hot Progressive

This new Class II offering is one of the first games on Multimedia’s new “High Rise” series, featuring a 37-inch vertical, portrait-style top screen on what has been called the largest video top box in the industry.

In this case, the top box displays five progressive jackpots, and undergoes a unique sequence during play. A fire backing the jackpot numbers on the display appears to get brighter as play progresses, becoming brightest—“white hot”—just before a progressive hits.

The progressives are hit by landing the corresponding number of jackpot symbols anywhere on the game screen. It is a nine-reel game, with each reel stop actually a complete reel in the math program. Progressives begin at five scattered jackpot symbols, with the jackpot resetting at $20, and progress to a top prize resetting at $10,000 (configurable by the casino) for landing jackpot symbols on all nine reels.

There also is a free-spin event. The “White Hot Free Spin Bonus” is triggered by Free Spin symbols on reels 1, 5 and 9. The player is prompted to pick one of the trigger symbols to reveal seven, 10 or 15 free spins. The free spins can be re-triggered during the bonus rounds.
