A Swedish gambler snagged a huge payout of SEK 1.7 million or approximately $202,000 with AvatarUX’s BountyPop slot only four days after the game’s release.
This marks the largest payout ever from an AvatarUX slot since the company was founded in 2018.
BountyPop is a five-reel, three-row slot with a pirate ship theme and a bounty of special features. The game went live out on November 30 and is the fourth title in AvatarUX’s PopWins slot series.
In the action-packed game, symbols roll onto the screen, triggering unique sound effects and animations and potentially activating special features. AvatarUX’s PopWins feature is activated on every win, clearing winning symbols and replacing them with two new ones. This causes the reels to expand up to six rows in the base game and up to nine in the Free Spins mode.
With nine rows unlocked, Free Spins offers 59,049 ways to win, and when the grid expands up to six rows during the base game, the Base Mystery Wheel is activated. When the free spins feature ends with all nine rows, the Mystery Wheel is revealed, and you can ascend through the Base, Bronze, Silver, and Gold wheels to unlock massive prizes on the inner and outer wheels. The Gold wheel holds nine symbols and multipliers from 3x to 100x.
The lucky Swedish player wagered SEK200 and landed three scatters and then chose to gamble their free spins using the special feature to grab nine free spins.
On the fourth free spin, they managed to unlock the Bronze wheel, and on the fifth free spin, the Silver wheel was activated. The player progressed to the Gold wheel on the seventh spin to land a SEK 17,740 prize.
The bonus Gold wheel’s arrow then pointed to the inner ring on the first spin, stopping on 100x to boost the winning amount to SEK 1,748,000.
AvatarUX’s Managing Director, Marcus Honney, commented on the landmark win, saying that the fact that the payout came from the developer’s newest slot made the occurrence extra special. He stated that the Swedish winner had lived the full PopWin mechanic experience, utilising all the bonus features to achieve their milestone win.
