WMS—Cascading Reels® Golden Pearl™
WMS introduces one of the latest additions to the Cascading Reels®, the first series in WMS’ Innovation Category. During a reel spin, each symbol in a winning combination disappears. The symbols above then drop down to take their place, and new symbols cascade onto the screen to fill any gaps. This continues until all winning lines have been paid, building excitement. Following the success of the eight Cascading Reels themes that are already available, WMS introduces Golden Pearl™, which features a unique expanding wild feature never before seen in a Cascading Reels theme. When two or more scattered Clam symbols appear inside the game reels box, they expand to create four wilds in an upward direction. This means that as additional paylines are created and new symbols drop in, additional wilds can now drop in too. This theme also features a free plays bonus that awards seven free plays with all wins doubled. Golden Pearl is sure to be a hit with players and a great addition to the Cascading Reels series.
