The POWERBUCK$ Bonus Gateway is triggered by getting three POWERBUCK$ Bonus scatter symbols anywhere on the base game reels in the active reel window. These symbols are only found on reels 1, 3, and 5.

The chance of winning the POWERBUCK$ Jackpot or Progressive is linearly proportional to the size of the bet.

POWERBUCK$ Features Eligibility

POWERBUCK$ Power Meter

POWERBUCK$ Power Hits displays a Power Meter that opens on the right side of the screen at the start of the game and whenever the total bet is changed.

The Power Meter displays bonus unlocking and top award eligibility. Increasing the total bet unlocks more bonuses. A total bet of $3 or more unlocks all bonuses and enables POWERBUCK$ Progressive eligibility.

The Power Meter can also be opened by pressing the tab at the right side of the game screen.

The Power Meter closes when the SPIN button is pressed or when the CLOSE tab is pressed.

POWERBUCK$ Bonus Gateway

When POWERBUCK$ is triggered, the player is taken to the gateway to choose a bonus to play. The number of eligible bonuses available for selection depends upon the total bet size. Grayed out icons are not available. To unlock all 3 bonuses, the total bet must be $3 or more.

The odds of winning the POWERBUCK$ Jackpot or POWERBUCK$ Progressive are exactly the same for each bonus. The expected payback of each bonus is exactly the same.

POWERBUCK$ Power Picks Bonus

Select the Power Picks icon on the Bonus Gateway to play the Power Picks Bonus.

Try to find all 11 Lightning Bolt symbols to win the POWERBUCK$ Jackpot or POWERBUCK$ Progressive.

First select 10 pick icons. Each pick awards a Lightning Bolt symbol or a blank. The more Lightning Bolt symbols selected, the higher the award.

Then make a Power Pick from the five special pick spots added to the screen after regular picks have been selected. The Power Pick awards a cash value, a multiplier, or a Lightning Bolt symbol.

Once all picks are completed, the results are revealed, starting with the standard picks.

Move up one level on the Prize Ladder for each Lightning Bolt symbol awarded.

In the rare case that all 10 picks selected are blank, the Power Picks Bonus randomly assigns a level from 1 to 9 on the Prize Ladder.

If the Power Pick awards a multiplier, the current level on the Prize Ladder is multiplied by that multiplier.

If the Power Pick pays a cash value, that value is added to the current level on the Prize Ladder.

If the Power Pick awards a Lightning Bolt symbol, the next highest level on the Prize Ladder is indicated.

If the Prize Ladder indicates level 10 and the Power Pick awards a Lightning Bolt symbol, win the POWERBUCK$ Jackpot or POWERBUCK$ Progressive, depending on the total bet amount.

Win the final value indicated on the Prize Ladder after the Power Pick has been revealed.

POWERBUCK$ Power Path Bonus

Select the Power Path icon on the Bonus Gateway to play the Power Path Bonus.

Try to reach the end of the path for a chance to win the POWERBUCK$ Jackpot or POWERBUCK$ Progressive.

The bonus starts with 3 spins on the Spins Remaining meter. Press the spinner to spin. The spinner indicates the number of spaces to move along the path. Each spin awards 1 to 4 moves on the path. Earn the feature of the space where the pawn lands at the end of the moves.

Each space on the path has a feature.

  • Landing on a space containing a +1 Spin symbol awards 1 extra spin of the spinner.
  • Landing on a space containing ADVANCE moves the player to the next +1 Spin symbol space and awards 1 extra spin of the spinner.
  • Landing on a cash space pays 1, 2, or 3 cash values.
  • Landing on a slot space awards 1 spin on the corresponding slot game. Win cash and/or an extra spin of the spinner. The +1 Spin symbol appears on reel 3 only. Further along the path, the slot games offer richer rewards with Wild, Double Wild, and Triple Wild symbols. See the paytable for details.
  • Landing on a 2x slot space awards 1 spin on the corresponding slot game with all cash wins from that slot multiplied by 2x.

Reaching or exceeding the POWERBUCK$ Slot space awards 1 spin on the POWERBUCK$ Slot game. Any spins left on the Spins Remaining meter are played on the POWERBUCK$ Slot game. POWERBUCK$ Slot game spins remaining after the POWERBUCK$ Jackpot or POWERBUCK$ Progressive is won are not played. If the POWERBUCK$ Slot game awards 3 POWERBUCK$ symbols, win the POWERBUCK$ Jackpot or POWERBUCK$ Progressive, depending on the total bet amount.

If all awarded spins have been played and no cash has been won, a consolation win is paid.

The total bonus win is paid and the Power Path Bonus ends after all awarded spins have been played or after the POWERBUCK$ Jackpot or POWERBUCK$ Progressive is won.

POWERBUCK$ Stacked Wheels Bonus

Select the Stacked Wheels icon on the Bonus Gateway to play the Stacked Wheels Bonus.

Try to collapse 7 reels for a chance to win the POWERBUCK$ Progressive.

A device consisting of 7 reels and 8 wheel faces is built on the screen. Each reel contains Lightning Bolt symbols and blanks, and each wheel contains cash values or Lightning Bolt symbols.

Press SPIN to spin the reels. On the Reel Spins Left meter, the Stacked Wheels icons represent the number of spins remaining for the current reel. Each time the reels spin, one icon becomes inactive. The meter starts with 3 chances to spin and returns to 3 chances each time a reel collapses. After the reels stop, if a Lightning Bolt symbol appears in the center position of a reel, that reel locks for the remainder of the bonus or until collapsed. If a Lightning Bolt symbol appears in the center position of the leftmost reel, a spin of the corresponding wheel face is awarded. After the wheel stops spinning, win the value on the indicated wheel wedge.

After each wheel win is paid, the leftmost reel collapses and the values on the wheel face change to the wheel values corresponding to the new leftmost reel. If the reel that is now in the leftmost position is already locked with a Lightning Bolt symbol in the center position, a spin of the corresponding wheel face is awarded. After the awarded wheel spins have been played and the corresponding reels have collapsed, the Reel Spins Left meter returns to 3 chances.

If no Lightning Bolt symbol appears in the center position of the leftmost reel after all reel spins have been played, a final wheel spin on the corresponding wheel face is awarded.

If all 7 reels collapse during the bonus, a wheel spin on the 8th wheel is awarded. If the 8th wheel stops on a cash value, this is added to the bonus winnings. If the 8th wheel stops on a Lightning Bolt symbol, win the POWERBUCK$ Progressive.

The total bonus win is paid and the Stacked Wheels Bonus ends after all awarded wheel spins have been played.

Symbol Replacement Feature

In the base game and the Free Spins Bonus, each reel includes large stacks of the same symbol. Before each spin, a symbol is randomly selected to fill every reel's stacks. Any symbol may appear in any stack, except the POWERBUCK$ Bonus symbol.

Free Spins Bonus

The Free Spins Bonus is triggered by getting three or more Free Spins symbols in a line win, in the active base game reel window.

Triggering the Free Spins Bonus awards 1 free spin for each triggering payline.

The entire reel window becomes active in the Free Spins Bonus, regardless of the total bet amount.

For total bets of $3.00 or more, the bonus is played with 300 paylines.

For total bets of $2.00 or less, the bonus is played with 200 paylines.

Retrigger the Free Spins Bonus by getting three or more Free Spins symbols in a line win. Earn 1 additional free spin for each retriggering payline. The bonus can be retriggered multiple times, up to a maximum of 500 free spins per bonus.

Free spins are played at same line bet as the triggering spin.

Theme Game Rules

Misuse or malfunction voids all pays and plays.

All line win symbols must appear on a played line and on consecutive reels, beginning with the far left reel.

Only the highest winner is paid on each payline.

Coinciding line wins on different paylines are added.

Line wins are multiplied by the line bet.

Only the highest scatter win is paid. Scatter wins are multiplied by the line bet.

Scatter wins are independent from line wins and are added to the total amount paid.

POWERBUCK$ Bonus scatter symbol appears on reels 1, 3, and 5 only.

Free spins are played at same line bet as the triggering spin.

Wins are shown in currency.

In some jurisdictions, regardless of bet size, there is an award cap on any single theme game transaction. See the paytable for details. A game transaction includes the results of the Free Spins Bonus, plus the outcome which launched the bonus, but does not include the POWERBUCK$ bonuses, the POWERBUCK$ Jackpot, or the POWERBUCK$ Progressive award. If the award cap is reached in the Free Spins Bonus, the Free Spins Bonus ends immediately, even if there are remaining frees spins. If a POWERBUCK$ bonus was triggered on the same theme game spin, the game transitions to the POWERBUCK$ Bonus Gateway; otherwise it returns to the theme game.

POWERBUCK$ Rules

For total bets less than $3, only the POWERBUCK$ Jackpot is eligible to be won (not the POWERBUCK$ Progressive). For total bets of $3 or higher, only the POWERBUCK$ Progressive is eligible to be won (not the POWERBUCK$ Jackpot).

The probability of winning a POWERBUCK$ Jackpot or POWERBUCK$ Progressive is exactly proportional to the total bet size.

For total bets higher than $3, after every POWERBUCK$ bonus that does not award the POWERBUCK$ Progressive, a behind-the-scenes Second Chance drawing occurs that can also award the POWERBUCK$ Progressive.

POWERBUCK$ bonuses, the POWERBUCK$ Jackpot, and the POWERBUCK$ Progressive are not subject to an award cap.

Upon winning the POWERBUCK$ Jackpot or POWERBUCK$ Progressive, a message appears to indicate that customer service will be in contact within 24 hours with payout details. The win verification process may take up to 72 hours during which time, the win amount will not be reflected in the player's account balance. The specific payment process is dependent upon the casino's policy on large win disbursement. You may continue to play. Continuing play does not affect the payment of a POWERBUCK$ Jackpot or POWERBUCK$ Progressive win.

The amount paid after a verified POWERBUCK$ Progressive win is approximately the amount seen on the POWERBUCK$ Progressive meter when the win occurs. Potentially, the actual amount paid for a POWERBUCK$ Progressive win could be somewhat higher because of communication and display delays.

In an exceptionally rare case, the win value could be the POWERBUCK$ Progressive seed amount if another player's winning outcome is received by the central server immediately prior to another player's winning outcome. It is theoretically possible for this to occur even though the POWERBUCK$ Progressive meter did not yet display the meter reset caused by the first player's win. The order of winning is solely determined by the timestamp applied to each transaction request upon receipt by the jackpot server.

All applicable taxes and fees in connection with any winnings awarded to you and any other payments are the sole responsibility of the player. Winnings cannot be transferred, substituted, or redeemed for any other consideration.

The casino or POWERBUCK$ administrator may deactivate this game and/or its linked Jackpot and/or Progressive at any time.

The POWERBUCK$ administrator or casino may increase or decrease the size of the POWERBUCK$ Progressive win by contributing or removing money at any time.

The POWERBUCK$ Progressive meter represents an increasing top award where the rate of growth is based on a fixed proportion of all bets and any additional funds added by the POWERBUCK$ administrator.

Additional Information

Lost Connection During POWERBUCK$ Jackpot or Progressive Win

In the unlikely event of a lost connection or game reset during a POWERBUCK$ Jackpot or POWERBUCK$ Progressive triggering event, the POWERBUCK$ Jackpot or POWERBUCK$ Progressive will be awarded.

Notification of the POWERBUCK$ Jackpot or POWERBUCK$ Progressive win will appear on the game screen when the game is reloaded, and the win will not be reflected in the player's account balance. Any standard wins will be reflected in the account balance. Continued play, whether in this game or any other, does not affect the POWERBUCK$ Jackpot or POWERBUCK$ Progressive payout. Customer Service will be in contact within 24 hours with the payout details. The win verification process may take up to 72 hours.

Expected Payback

In accordance with fair gaming practices required in most legal jurisdictions worldwide, each and every game outcome is completely independent. The odds of getting any particular standard outcome (i.e., not POWERBUCK$ related) are always the same depending on the bet size.

The standard outcome odds for each bet size do not vary based on prior outcomes, balance size, time of day, day of week etc. For example, if the top award is won on a spin, the chances of winning the top award on the next spin are exactly the same for each bet size. Likewise, prior losses do not change future odds.

The odds of triggering a POWERBUCK$ bonus increase with higher bet amounts, but are not otherwise influenced by any external factors. The player's choice of which POWERBUCK$ bonus to play does not affect long-term expected payback.

The expected payback reflects the theoretical return across a very large number of plays by numerous players over an extended period of time. For this game, the long-term, theoretically-expected paybacks are as follows: for wagers of $0.50 to $2.00: 88.12% to 88.90% and for wagers of $3.00 or higher: 89.00%. Wagers less than $3 are not eligible to win the POWERBUCK$ Progressive. For wagers of $3 or higher that are eligible to win the POWERBUCK$ Progressive, the theoretically expected payback is higher relative to the current value of the POWERBUCK$ Progressive meter. The results for any given player over a play session can vary widely from this long-term, expected average in either direction. The fewer the number of games played, the wider the normal variance of actual payback that may be experienced.
