Slot with ‘60 Million Ways to Win’ Feature Nominee for EGR’s Game of the Year
Posted on September 25, 2018
The EGR Operator Awards 2018 recently released a shortlist of nominees for awards in different categories relevant to casino gaming and sports betting. Among the awards to be given is Game of the Year for which Red Tiger Gaming’s Laser Fruit slot is shortlisted.
The Red Tiger title features a neon-themed 5×3-grid slot that, by default, gives players 243 ways to win. But as the game progresses, the players can have as many as 60 million ways to create winning matches of symbols on the grid.
From 243 to 60,466,176 Ways to Win
Laser Fruit created a buzz in the iGaming industry when it was released last April. This is because of the game’s feature that can expand the slot’s size and consequently increase the players’ ways to win. The maximum size the game can reach is 10×6. So from 243, the players’ number of ways to form winning combinations goes up to 60,466,176.
The expanding slot feature is triggered randomly. At any point of the game, blue lasers grace the reels to make the slot size expand either to the right or upward.
Players also have the chance to win up to 50 free spins in Laser Fruit. To win free spins, players must land at least three Scatters on the reels. The Wheel of Fortune will then appear to let the players determine the number of free spins they will receive. When the free spins mode is on, expanded reels lock in place to help players form more matches. The slot will revert to its original size when the last free spin ends.
Red Tiger Gaming tweeted, “Wow! Laser Fruit has been shortlisted for Game of the Year in the #EGROperatorAwards 2018. Congrats to all the other nominees. We’re looking forward to the ceremony!” The operator even invites players to check out the game, especially its “60 million ways to win” feature.
