New Innovations

During the bonus in Jackpot Party’s Rich Little Piggies, players roll dice to move around a wheel. Landing on a pig collects coins, increases a free spins multiplier, and replaces the pig with a bombPlayers spin until they land on a bomb, ending the bonus and starting the free spins.

In Cash Frenzy’s Golden Island Treasure, players progress through a map of five different islands by filling a meter during machine play. Each island has a unique bonus game. After completing all five islands, players unlock a sixth island to play for a jackpot.

Players collect wilds on two reel sets in myVEGAS Slots’ Devin & Dell. On the top reel set, a good cat drops floating halos that become wilds every ten spins. On the bottom reel set, an evil cat stacks flames to create a full-reel wild. During a free spins bonus, players answer moral dilemma questions to determine the free spins multiplier.
