Scientific Games’ Jin Ji Bao Xi® Game Series Receives Megaways™ Makeover
OpenGaming™ offering further enhanced with latest installment of popular Asian brand
LAS VEGAS – July 28, 2021– Scientific Games Corporation (NASDAQ: SGMS) (“Scientific Games” or the “Company”) has extended the popular slot franchise Jin Ji Bao Xi with the creation of a new iGaming title that incorporates the iconic Megaways mechanic for the first time.
The release of Jin Ji Bao Xi breathes new life into the Asian-themed game series and broadens its appeal to a new demographic of players.
In this new version of Jin Ji Bao Xi, players can enjoy the full Megaways experience with a considerable number of paylines, as well as the opportunity to win one of the game’s four fixed jackpot prizes.
During the base gameplay, coins are added to the pot that sits above the reels when Wilds land in view. As the pot’s lid closes, which can happen on any spin, players are presented with 12 coins and require to match three symbols to scoop the corresponding jackpot prize.
Four or more Coin symbols will trigger Free Spins, where there are six different bonuses to choose from that differ in terms of volatility. Each Free spin mode uses the Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten, Nine, Wild and Coin symbols, with the addition of one other high-paying symbol depending on which mode is selected.
In addition, a Buy Pass® feature is available in selected markets to guarantee entry into the Free Spins picker mode, and the title is fully equipped with responsible gaming tools.
Jin Ji Bao Xi is a hugely popular brand in the land-based casino sector and SG Digital continues to successfully adapt the theme into attractive and engaging iGaming titles. It is also the latest Asian-themed title developed by the Company to implement Megaways, following in the footsteps of 88 Fortunes.
Rob Procter, Content Specialist Director, Digital at Scientific Games, said: “This year has seen us produce a wide range of Megaways games that have proven to be a hit with players, demonstrating that we are capable of bringing new twists to a genre of slots that shows no signs of slowing down.
