Wazdans’s Hold the Jackpot™ feature keeps the momentum going
Wazdan, the global slot supplier, is set to scale up the production of its Hold the Jackpot™ feature following successful launches in recent hits: Unicorn Reels, Clover Lady™, Burning Stars 3™ and Sun of Fortune.
This unique and exciting mechanics immediately gained recognition among Wazdan fans all around the world and is now universally sought-after among players. Therefore, the Hold the Jackpot™ feature will be incorporated across the upcoming Wazdan titles: Midnight in Tokyo, Prosperity Pearls and Fortune Reels.
Each Hold the Jackpot™ bonus round begins with 3 Re-spins. However, their number resets every time a new symbol is drawn on the reels, which adds even more excitement to this well-designed feature. What is more, in each game, the mechanic is enhanced and refined to create immersive gaming experiences.
Unicorn Reels was the debut game, with players on a quest to find 25 Unicorns on the reels and a clear ladder system in place for players to see their progress. With 21 prizes on offer, three Jackpots and the chance to win the Grand Jackpot of 1,000x their stake, it has established itself as a leading product in the Wazdan portfolio.
With Bonus symbols awarding 4 Jackpots, Clover Lady™ saw the introduction of Multipliers in the form of a Direwolf symbol, with players able to magnify their win by 0.5x for every Direwolf found up to a maximum of 7x, awarding up to 3,500x a player’s stake, with the Bonus round taking place on a grid of 18 independent mini-reels.
Burning Stars 3™ offers a fast-paced, 3×3 variant of the bonus mode, where players need to keep their cool in the glare of the suns to find nine symbols for a win of 2,187x if they trigger the Grand Jackpot, while smaller prizes are on offer in the other three Jackpots.
In Wazdan’s newest release, Sun of Fortune, the Hold the Jackpot™ bonus is all about holding Bonus symbols with cash values assigned, as well as special Mini, Minor, and Major Jackpots. At the end of the bonus round all prizes, including collected Jackpot symbols, are summed up. Filling up all 16 reels is rewarded with the Grand Jackpot worth 1,000x the bet. Players also keep other wins from the bonus round on top of the Grand Jackpot.
In the upcoming Midnight in Tokyo slot, the Hold the Jackpot™ bonus round will be played on 15 mini reels. Players will be able to win both Major and Grand Jackpots, triggered by cute Geisha symbols, as well as additional cash prizes from Moon symbols, as all prizes will be summed up at the end of the bonus round.
As commented by Andrzej Hyla, Chief Commercial Officer at Wazdan: “Our Hold the Jackpot™ products have been hugely well-received, and we’re delighted to add more of them to our roadmap, as they provide the unmistakable flavor that many players seek.
