WagerWorks is one of the leading online gaming software developers. It has a fantastic range of branded online slot games. These slot games have exciting bonus rounds and unique features that make them among the most wanted slot games in the industry.
One of the unique features is the jackpot accumulator that is present in a number of WagerWorks slot games. Actually there are three different jackpot accumulators, usually identified by different colors. Each jackpot is set to an initial amount. Three of the symbols on the reels are the jackpot symbols. The symbols look alike but correspond to the colors of the jackpot accumulators. Whenever a jackpot symbol appears on the reels its accumulator amount increases as specified in the game rules. The amount of increase is linked to the amount wagered in the spin. The larger the wager the greater will be the increase in the jackpot amount. In this manner the three jackpot accumulators keep increasing during the normal spins. The amounts can reach dizzying heights.
The opportunity for cashing the jackpots comes in the bonus rounds. The bonus round is triggered as allowed in the game rules. Certain outcomes are specified in the bonus round. If the player manages to achieve the outcome then the amount standing in the jackpot accumulator is won by him. This jackpot accumulator is then reset to its original value, whereas the jackpots in the remaining accumulators are carried forward. It is not essential that the specified condition is met. Players can complete the bonus round without achieving the jackpot condition. Then no jackpot is cashed and all accumulators are carried forward.
Monopoly Here and Now is one of the most popular WagerWorks slot game. It is based on the Monopoly board game. In this game the jackpot accumulators are known as Free Parking Bonus Meters. This has reference to the Free Parking cell on the Monopoly board. The yellow Free Parking accumulator starts at 100 credits and the corresponding symbol appears only on reel 3. The orange Free Parking accumulator starts at 200 credits and the corresponding symbol appears only on reel 4. The red Free Parking accumulator starts at 500 credits and the corresponding symbol appears only on reel 5. When the yellow Free Parking appears on reel 3 its jackpot increases by 1x the total wager. When the orange Free Parking appears on reel 4 its jackpot increases by 2x the total wager. When the red Free Parking appears on reel 5 its jackpot increases by 3x the total wager. In Monopoly Here and Now the bonus game is triggered by three Board Bonus dice symbols. In this bonus round players get a number of rolls of the dice and move along the Monopoly board as in the actual game. If the player lands on the Free Parking cell then he is sure to win one of the three jackpots. Which jackpot he wins is decided by spinning a wheel.
Wheel of Fortune is another WagerWorks online slot with jackpot accumulators. The yellow, orange and red accumulators are initially set at 50, 75 and 100 credits respectively. The corresponding symbols can appear on any of the reels. The yellow and orange accumulators increase by the total bet amount and the red jackpot increases by twice the total bet. In the bonus round players spin the Wheel of Fortune and have an opportunity of winning one of the three jackpots.
