Wonder 4

This is a radical new twist on the multi-play video slot—games that feature multiple pay windows, allowing the player to wager on up to four reel-sets and spin the reels on each window simultaneously.

Aristocrat’s Wonder 4 takes this concept and applies it to various base games. The screen displays four reel sets, but each is an individual Aristocrat video slot game. Four games can be played simultaneously, each with its own free-spin, stacked wild or other game-specific bonus. Alternatively, the player can pick one of the four games and play it on all four reel-sets, as in a standard multi-play game.

Wonder 4 takes full advantage of Aristocrat’s new “Viridian WS” wide-screen monitor to combine four popular Aristocrat titles into a single game. The games included in the initial launch are “Buffalo,” “Fire Light,” “Pompeii” and “Wild Splash.”

To pick how to play, the player selects the on-screen menu and drags each desired game to the screen area. In the Wonder 4 Super Spin, when free games are triggered, the player can play the free games on one game or four independent sets of free games.
