IGT—Gong Xi Fa Cai™
IGT invites players seeking higher volatility to experience IGT’s Gong Xi Fa Cai, which translates to “Happy New Year” in Mandarin. The 5-reel, 50-payline game keeps players on the edge of their seats with vibrant Asian-inspired graphics including lucky dragons and gilded medallions. Anticipation climbs when the mystery trigger initiates the progressive bonus. Jewel-filled red envelopes in the Pick Bonus allow players to select envelopes until three of the same colored gems are revealed, awarding one of four corresponding progressive level jackpots. Players can also trigger the Free Spins Bonus, where stacked major symbols pay out big wins. Players are encouraged to place a side bet and buy the multiplier feature, which adds up to a 5X multiplier on any line wins that pass through the multiplier symbol and also extends the multipliers in the Free Games Bonus.

The sights, sounds and, most importantly, the Gremlins™ characters themselves are brought to life in this new gaming experience from WMS—the Gremlins theme. Featuring two player-selected modes, Gizmo or Gremlins Mode, each offering a unique player experience, Gremlins slots have all the fun of owning your own Mogwai—without the responsibility. Watch as the Gremlins characters appear respinning, electrifying or slamming the reels to add up to a 10X multiplier in the various Gremlins Multiplier Features, swinging down to drop Wild symbols or blowing Wild symbol kisses onto the reels in the Added Wilds Features. Spin the reels and collect clocks to activate pods on the top screen in the Gremlins Free Spin Bonus. Each spin moves the clock closer to midnight, and when the hand strikes twelve the pods hatch, adding Wild reels to the reels below. When three or more Sap symbols land on the reels, the Gremlins Sap Bonus is triggered. Each of the triggering progressive symbols flies up to the top screen, flipping over to reveal a credit prize or a progressive symbol—the more progressive symbols collected, the higher the progressive awarded.
