Zodiac Lion


Zodiac Lion

This new game on IGT’s CrystalCurve cabinet makes full use of the 42-inch curved monitor with an expanded 4-5-4-5-4 reel array (four symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5; five symbols on reels 2 and 4).

The base game is a ways-to-win video slot with mystery and bonus features. During the base game, when a lion symbol appears inside of a frame on the reel, it unlocks the frame and transforms that symbol position into a wild.

Three or more Lion Spin symbols in locked frames award the Lion Spin Bonus. One free spin is awarded for every triggering symbol. Once the bonus is triggered, a giant wheel spins behind the reels awarding players up to 22 lion symbols per spin, for an anticipation-building gaming experience. The goal is to fill the entire game field with wild symbols, which pays a top 250,000 credits at max bet.

The game includes a 100-credit cost-to-cover.
