Jun 10, 2002 10:33 PM

The newest Megajackpot progressive slot is banking on the highly recognizable Survivor TV series, appropriately called the Survivor brand slot. Available in nickel denomination, the jackpot at press time was more than $264,000.

A joint venture between WMS Gaming and IGT, the single line, 3-reel mechanical slot features huge jackpots with features hinged to the reality-based TV show.

Players will watch with amazement as a Survivor character competes in one of three possible bonus challenges. The better they complete the task, the more credits players win.

Players will choose from challenges like River Crossing, Hot Coal Walk or Jungle Cookout.

The Survivor progressive jackpot is awarded when the three Survivor logo symbols land on the pay-line with the maximum coins played.

When a bonus symbol stops on a payline, the bonus round is triggered. In the River Crossing Challenge, the character will cross a crocodile infested river on an overhead rope. The further they get, the more players win.

In the Jungle Cookout Challenge, two characters team up to create a delicious soup in a given amount of time. One challenge character fetches the ingredients from a sack while the other stirs the pot. You are paid for each ingredient they place in the soup. Example ingredients are fish, bones, bugs, shoes, lobster and pineapple!
