- The lower-value symbols are J to A card royals with intricately engraved surfaces, all of which pay 100 coins for 5 on a payline.
- The higher value symbols are an elephant, a panda, and a koi fish.
- The koi pays 200 coins for 5 on a payline.
- The panda pays 300 coins for 5 on a payline.
- The elephant pays 500 coins for 5 on a payline.
- The wild symbol is green lettering against a green background that substitutes fr all regular pay symbols.
- The scatter symbol is the words “free spins” that triggers the bonus game.
- The gold coin symbols and treasure chest symbols combine to pay out cash prizes and trigger the jackpot.
When gold coin symbols land on the reels they will display a specific cash value. To receive the value of the coin symbols, a treasure chest symbol must appear on reel 5. This will cause the values of the coins on the reels to combine into a single payout.
If you land the special rainbow-tinged coin and bonus wheel treasure chest symbols on reels 1 and 5 on the same spin, you will activate the Wheel Bonus. Up to 7 pointers will be activated on the wheel, depending on the size of your wager, and when the wheel stops spinning you will be awarded the combined value of any cash prizes, multipliers, and the Grand and Major progressive jackpots the pointers land on.
If your triggering wager is $3 or above one of your pointers could land on the Powerbuck$ segment, which will award you the largest progressive jackpot prize that starts at $1 million.
If you land scatter symbols on reels 1, 3, and 5, you will receive 10 free spins. You can retrigger this feature by landing 3 more scatters while it is active, and you could claim a maximum of 200 free spins.
Powerbucks Wheel of Fortune Exotic Far East slot is an effective vehicle for a huge progressive prize opportunity, but how does the rest of the game measure up? The slot’s Asian theme is fairly generic although the background animation of lanterns floating on sunset-lit water is both striking and soothing. The gameplay isn’t exceptional, but the Ca$h Link and Wheel Bonus features add a real sense of suspense and anticipation when they are triggered. There may be better titles out there, but if your focus is potentially taking home the minimum $1 million jackpot then you’re likely to overlook this game’s flaws.
