Zuma 3D

This latest fruit of IGT’s licensing agreement with PopCap Games is based on the hit arcade and home video game centered on a frog idol that spits balls along various paths to earn points. It uses IGT’s True 3D glasses-free 3-D technology on the AXXIS 3D cabinet.

Building on the success of IGT’s original Zuma slot, the new 3-D game offers a seven-level, must-hit-by progressive and a dynamic attract feature for an immersive gaming experience.

The base game is a five-reel, 30-line video slot featuring a frog wild symbol that engages “track balls” that rotate around the perimeter of the reels. With each base game wager, the wild frog symbol can trigger incremental “Mojo Pot” wins, “Ghost Boss” multipliers, and “Power Balls” that can result in extra wilds and re-spins.

There are four unique bonus experiences, including the “Jaguar Bonus,” “Sephalo Ka Boss Battle,” “Kolo Kamari Boss Battle” and “Szhaka Mu Boss Battle.”

The bonuses follow the game-play sequences familiar to players of the mobile version of Zuma, with balls shot from the mechanical frog character in the game, the object being to match the colors.

The progressives are won by accumulating colored Mojo Pot symbols to fill up the meter under any of the seven jackpots displayed on the tall vertical screen of the AXXIS 3D cabinet. And, of course, the frog idol, Mojo Balls and other objects jut out at the player during game play in the True 3D format.
