This latest entry into Scientific Games’ Willy Wonka series presents a load of mystery features and bonuses on the immersive Gamefield 2.0 cabinet. The base game is a six-reel game, with four rows of symbols per reel and 25 paylines.
The game employs a three-level symbol-driven progressive, with a Minor jackpot resetting at $250 and a Major resetting at $2,000. The top progressive jackpot is a wide-area prize either on the Reel Adventures link, resetting at $200,000; or the Cash Connection link, resetting at $400,000. (There also is a near-area progressive version.)
The top jackpot is won with six scattered Willy Wonka symbols at max bet.
There are several mystery events in the base game. The “Oompa Loompa Feature,” randomly triggered on any spin, stretches the reels to five, six or eight active rows, and three reels are replaced by an alternate reel that contains more high-paying symbols.
Each Everlasting Gobstopper symbol that lands on the reels awards the following credit prize: Regular Gobstopper symbol: 10–250, Mystery Gobstopper symbol: 25–500, and Golden Gobstopper symbol: 100–1,000. If at least one Golden Gobstopper symbol lands on the reels, then a multiplier of 2X–10X may be awarded.
Also randomly on any spin, a wild symbol will be placed on up to six reels—a minimum of two reels, or three reels if the Enhanced Bet is active. Also random is a Reel Replacement Feature, in which a number of positions on each reel are replaced with one of nine high-paying symbols.
Five Golden Egg symbols trigger a bonus feature. Each egg is randomly placed in either the Free Spins egg collector or the Chocolate River Bonus egg collector. The first egg in the Free Spins collector awards five fee spins, and each additional egg adds one free spin. The Chocolate River Bonus awards a pick feature, with each Everlasting Gobstopper symbol awarding a prize of 10-75 credits with the standard bet or 25-100 credits with the Upgrade bet.
At the end of the pick feature, a Slingshot Game and a candy pick field of 10 candies are awarded. During the Slingshot Game, players will launch the Everlasting Gobstopper to select one candy from the pick field. Each candy reveals the following prizes: Regular Gobstopper: 150–2,000 credits, Mystery Gobstopper: 150–2,500 credits, Major, Minor jackpots, or 2X, Golden Gobstopper: 150–3,000 Credits, Major, Minor Jackpots, or 2X multiplier.
Each bonus feature ends with a chance to land the “Golden Ticket.” Players are presented with Chocolate Wonka Bars equal to the active bet multiplier. Each Wonka Bar may reveal the Golden Ticket for 500,000 credits, 50–200 credits if Standard bet is active, or 75–200 credits if More Upgrade Everlasting Gobstoppers bet is active.
