Since IGT introduced its REELdepth video slots, there’s been a buzz in the casino industry about how unique and innovative the 3-D style, Multi-Layer Display technology has enhanced the game for players.

Now, IGT has added to its line by introducing Joker’s Wild, its first line of REELdepth machines that feature Multi-Level Progressive jackpots.

In addition to offering five, winner-take-all progressive awards, Joker’s Wild features 3-D expanding Wilds, a scatter pays top award and a truly unique bonus round.

The bonus feature involves five levels of progressive jackpots: the Bronze, Copper, Silver, Gold and Platinum. The bonus is triggered when the Joker symbol lands anywhere on reels 1, 3 and 5.

When the bonus round kicks in, players automatically win the Bronze progressive. As they continue, anytime the Joker symbol appears, the credit win is doubled.

Free game credits won during bonus play advance the player to the next progressive level. The top level progressive or the highest award is won in the bonus round by progressive through all the levels.

The Joker’s Wild feature ends when the "devil" symbol lands anywhere on the bonus wheel or when players achieve the Platinum level (the last level).

At this point players collect their winnings and are returned to the base game.

Along the way, players are treated to the animated, 3-D bonus reels, crisp graphics and surround sound effects.
