This new game in IGT’s Multi-Level Progressives category features six
themed progressive levels and two stand-alone progressive jackpots. The game is offered on the G23 wide-screen machine with AVP technology, and sbX connectivity for server-based applications.

There are three base games available with the link-“Coral Riches,” “Jungle Magic” and “Wild Savanna.” All are in 50-line configurations with a four-by-five player interface.

The progressive rounds are activated by covering the paylines and making a 10-credit “side bet.” There is a freespin bonus, awarding 15, 50 or 100 free spins for three, four or five scattered bonus symbols, respectively.

Six of the eight progressive jackpots are awarded through line combinations.The Minor progressive is awarded if all six in-game progressives are collected during free spins. The Major progressive is awarded when five World symbols land on a payline. Free spins can be initiated again during the bonus, and progressive amounts can be won multiple times. The progressive jackpots are multiplied by the line bet.

A “Jackpot Features Off” message notifies players who are not betting the side wager, and a “Jackpot Features On” reminds players they are betting the side wager.
