$1 DENOM ACTION! Lightning Link Sahara Gold Slot - $25 MAX BET BONUS!
OH THE SUSPENSE! The Lightning Link Sahara Gold slot machine by Aristocrat - $25 Max Bet!
Lightning Link has many themes and this time I'm playing the Sahara Gold version which is a clone of the Happy Lantern version, which seems to be more popular overall.
Lightning Link has two primary bonus features: the "Free Games Feature" and the "Hold & Spin Feature". The Free Games Feature is triggered by landing 3, 4, or 5 bonus symbols for 6 free games, with the potential for retriggers. Upon trigger, you choose a Treasure Chest and are either awarded the Hold & Spin Feature or the Free Games Feature. If you are awarded the Free Games Feature, you are then awarded either 6, 9 or 15 free games with either 25, 100, or 200 additional wilds added. Obviously what you want is 15 free games with 200 wilds, the ultimate!
The "Hold & Spin Feature" is triggered by landing 6 or more coins which can have either Credit Awards or Progressive Jackpots on them. During the "Hold & Spin Feature" you start with 3 spins and for every spin where you land at least one additional coin 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 coins are totaled for your bonus. If you fill the screen, you receive the top Grand Progressive Jackpot.
Surprisingly, the Major Progressive Jackpot can also be won randomly! In addition to winning it the traditional way during the Hold & Spin feature, you have a chance to also win it after any bought game where 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 coins appear.
What's interesting is that your denomination dictates the values of your Mini and Minor bonuses and at the $1 Denomination, the "Mini" bonus is a cool $1000 and the "Minor" bonus is an insane $5000, WOW! Enjoy!
