2 JACKPOT HANDPAYS! Double Top Dollar & Lightning Link Slots - $100/SPIN BONUS!!
No Accidental $100 bet on the Double Top Dollar slot which remains an undisputed classic that still can be found in most high limit rooms and I love it! It's a Double Diamond slot where you win by landing a winning combination on a single payline and if that combination contains one Double Diamond symbol, your win is multiplied by 2 and if it contains two of them, your win is multiplied by 4 and if you land three of them you win the Top Award of 1600 or 2400 credits, depending on if you are playing a 2 or 3 credit version of each game, respectively. Note these multipliers do not apply to any bonus you may initiate and to qualify for the bonus, you need to be playing max bet.
The bonus in Double Top Dollar is initiated by landing the bonus symbol on reel 3 after which you are presented up to 4 offers where you can reject the first three if you so choose. Each offer consists of between 1 and 4 values between 5 and 1000 credits. Additionally, your offer may then be randomly multiplied by 2x or 4x. After each offer is made, the machine will actually let you know, by the odds, if it's best to Accept or Reject the presented offer. This is not to say by following that advice you will always do better during that particular bonus, although over the long-term, you would. Personally, I follow the advice of the machine unless I'm betting extremely high limit and am presented with a borderline situation on the first or second offers, in which case I may choose to accept the Jackpot and walk away. Finally, in the past I HAVE scored the Top Offer of 1000 credits on a $5 denomination machine, it does happen, and wouldn't it be awesome to see it happen again at the $50 denomination?!
Lightning Link Magic Pearl is a clone of the "High Stakes" version of the game where both have a primary Free Games Bonus and the classic Hold & Spin Feature that is identical across all themes.
In Magic Pearl, the Free Games Bonus is initiated by landing 3 or more bonus symbols for 6 free games. During this bonus reels 2, 3 and 4 are merged into one Big Reel which always fully lands to fill the reel completely with any available symbol from the game including the Pearl symbol to trigger the Hold & Spin feature or the Bonus symbol to retrigger! Be aware though, a different pay table is applied during the bonus than the base game, where payouts are a bit less than what you may expect.
The "Hold & Spin Feature is initiated by landing 6 or more pearl symbols which can have either Credit Awards or Progressive Jackpots on them. During this feature you start with 3 spins and for every spin where you land at least one additional pearl symbol your spin count resets to 3, where the goal is to Fill the Screen. When you run out of spins the bonus ends and your pearl symbols are totaled for your total win. If you Fill the Screen, you receive the top Grand Progressive Jackpot!
Surprisingly, both the Major Progressive Jackpot and Grand Progressive Jackpot can also be won randomly! In addition to winning them the traditional way during the Hold & Spin Feature, you have a chance to win either after any bought game where 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 pearl symbols appear.
