Showcased on DIMENSION 49J with custom merchandising options, Lucky Envelope is a 243 Ways game, with 4 progressive jackpot levels that scale by denomination. Wild red envelope symbols appear on reels 1 and 2 throughout primary play, which can randomly trigger the jackpot pick game.

When awarded, 30 red envelopes flood the screen for the player reveal a guaranteed jackpot award: Mini, Minor, Major, or Grand. Players can also win an instant Mini or Minor award through the game’s Coin Feature. During primary play, the Coin Feature is triggered by collecting a red envelope on reels 1 and 2 in conjunction with coin credit prize symbols on reels 3, 4, and 5. Lucky Envelope makes its Indian Gaming Tradeshow debut with 2 available base games: Jade Wealth™ and Plum Riches™.

Power of the Samurai

Players can come face-to-face with the full force of fortune in Power of the Samurai™! Throughout game play, samurai fighters stand guard to the big Grand jackpot.

A dynamic, white-haired gorilla with glowing green eyes helps celebrate each new credit award tally with thundering fists pounded against his chest.

Rising Diamond

Rising Diamond™ features a unique, expanding reel frame mechanic that takes advantage of DIMENSION 49’s tall portrait screen, with two unique game iterations: Pink Edition and Blue Edition. In this original linked progressive series, the main chase is the wild diamond symbols that appear in the middle 3 reels throughout game play. These wild symbols are colored pink in the Pink edition, and blue in the Blue Edition. Every time a wild diamond symbol lands on the reels, the player is rewarded—whether with an expanded reel frame and/or the free game feature.

Rising Diamond features a GRAND linked progressive jackpot, MAJOR standalone progressive jackpot, and MINOR standalone progressive jackpot, with increased jackpot odds at higher bet levels.

Pink Edition

Rising Diamond is designed to accelerate player excitement as the reel frame stretches further upward. As a scatter pay game that awards wins based on adjacent left-to-right symbol connections rather than traditional line pays, Rising Diamond’s expanding reel frame greatly expands the number of ways each spin can win, up to 100,000 ways! And as the reel frame expands, players increase the odds of triggering the Rising Diamond Bonus—an enhanced free game feature with an expanded reel frame. 

Rising Diamond: Pink Edition awards up to 6 free games and up to 2x wins. Players can win additional free games during the free game feature.

Blue Edition

Rising Diamond: Blue Edition awards up to 3 free games and up to 5x wins.

The bottom screen is roughly at a 70-degree angle for ease of view, while the top two screens stand vertical. DIMENSION 27 is the launchpad for a strong variety of game content, including special-edition SeleXion® multi-game packs, extended ROM progressive jackpot games, new integrated standalone jackpot games, and original new linked progressive series.

Depending on how many panda faces land at the end of the spin, the player is awarded a corresponding number of bonus spins. To make the rewards even greater, players next move to the prize wheel in the top screen where they have the chance at a guaranteed additional prize above beyond the awarded bonus spins.

Lion Carnival

Lion Carnival is among the most popular releases in Konami’s Multiple Lines 15 REELS™ series, not to mention an exciting upcoming addition to the Panda Power series. It features a mystery multiplier chance throughout game play. All multipliers appearing after the reels stop will be multiplied together, for a total multiplier from 1x to 144x. During the free games, the mystery multiplier feature is always active.

Solstice Celebration

No matter the time year, Konami’s popular Solstice Celebration 5-reel video slot captures the magic of the seasons with fascinating bonus play and frequent Sparkle Feature. The game uses Konami’s Xtra Reward® and Action Stacked Symbols® to create stacks of framed matching symbols for increasing win combinations. Anytime framed stacked symbols cover 2 or more reels, any remaining partially-framed reels nudge to cover the entire reel and all framed symbols are transformed to a matching, random gigantic symbol—an extra winning opportunity called the Sparkle Feature. Should the Sparkle Feature produce the free game princess symbol, players win up to 40 free games. During the free games, any wild sun symbols automatically nudge to cover the entire reel with wilds, and the Sparkle Feature can occur more frequently.

Thunder Warrior

Players can feel the earth quiver and the jackpots quake when they wield the power of the Greek god of thunder in Panda Power: Thunder Warrior.

Inspired by strength of Thor, this 5-reel slot game places him as the hero character. His face covers the wild symbol, his helmet acts as the scatter symbol, and his hammer gleams as Pic-A. Whenever a wild symbol lands on the reels, there is a chance Thor shoots down lightning upon the reels, randomly sending full-reel wilds across any reels.

Dragon’s Law Twin Fever

Dragon’s Law Twin Fever is also expanding its reach into the new Panda Power series. This Xtra Reward® title is an original math 5-reel game that pays tribute to the top-performing classic with two long-tailed Dragon’s Law™ characters displayed in the upper screen—a red dragon and a blue dragon—for double the mystery feature excitement. Randomly before or after any spin, either one or both dragon characters will snake across the reels to scatter additional wild symbols.

Dragon’s Law Twin Fever also includes a free game feature, triggered by any 3 or more scatter yin-yang symbols. The Dragon’s Law Feature occurs more frequently during the free games, and additional free games can be won during the free game feature.

If the wheel spin lands on the Eclipse Prize Feature, the player is transported to a credit collection feature across the game’s 3 center reels, with 3 spins awarded. If all 12 positions in the Eclipse Prize Feature become filled, the player is awarded the Total Eclipse Bonus, with 5x wins the collected credit prizes.
