Aruze Gaming has launched the first two games in Asia that are part of the supplier’s “Pachincoin” series of video slots. Pachincoin Money Lab and Pachincoin Jackpot Circus feature game play in the style of pachinko, with no spinning reels.
Both games are presented on Aruze’s Muso Curve-43 Hybrid cabinet. They combine traditional pachinko game play with progressive jackpots and second-screen bonuses. Both games shoot virtual coins from the top center of the screen. The coins then bounce on pegs, just like the balls in a pachinko game. If they land in a catchpot, the prize is won. Upcoming coins are displayed in a row at the bottom of the screen, showing which upcoming coins have a 2X multiplier attached. Players control the rate of play, releasing coins on the screen as quickly as they press the play button.
Break The Bank is a collection feature common to all games in the Pachincoin series. Coins are collected during regular game play into a bank. Coins are collected into banks by bet, encouraging players to try new bet levels and denomination options as they chase the best possible feature. Once the Break the Bank feature is triggered, all collected coins are released in a free-play-style feature.
