MERKUR, represented by its Spanish subsidiary company MERKUR DOSNIHA, showcased its latest linked jackpot innovation, Link Zone at Spain’s FIJMA show in Madrid.
Link Zone is a 4 level linked progressive jackpot system that features 4 different 50 line game titles, each one of which represents a different game play theme. Qin Zone and Fire Zone both have free games with wild reels and feature Chinese and Fantasy settings respectively. Ocean Zone and Mythic Zone both have free games with better reels (where the Royal symbols are removed during free play) and have an undersea adventure and ancient Egyptian theme respectively.
Link Zone features two scalable bonus prizes, Minor and Mini, but once players progress through their chosen base game to the linked progressive Major and Grand jackpots, the excitement and the possibility of huge wins rises and is further increased by the player choosing to increase his or her play denomination and bet level. During Base game play the reel spins are uninterrupted by background music, relying on the various alert symbols and sounds to announce major win events such as free games or the Hold and Spin feature. They are the pathway to reaching the games’ ultimate feature, the twin spinning wheels that are the heart of Link Zone’s progressive jackpot play.
