I.R.I.S. 3000 is a video slot with a difference. The acronym for this game stands for Interactive Real Intelligence Slot, and it's quite possible that you've never encountered anything like it before.
This game has not 3, not 5, but 7 reels! However, it only has a single pay line, and wins are awarded for the number of symbols that appear, not if they appear in any particular order. So the fact that there are 7 reels is actually a positive thing.
What makes this game so exciting is that it has a progressive jackpot that starts seeding at $100,000!
Operating the I.R.I.S. 3000
This game works a bit differently to other video slots you might have tried in the past, although the concepts are largely similar. Basically, it's a five reel slot with seven reels. Or to put it another way, there are 7 reels, but you must pick 5 to play.
So your first task is to choose 5 of the steel doors in the display to open, using the buttons labeled 1 to 7 on the control panel. Or you could not bother: if you don't choose, the game will choose randomly for you.
The coin size is fixed at 50c, so your next decision is how many coins to play. If you're at all interested in that $100,000+ progressive jackpot, you need to be playing three coins.
The theme of this game is a giant machine in a factory. It seems to be producing bars of ore, and a lot can go wrong because there are warning signs aplenty.
At the bottom of the pay table are the bars, but instead of being just text like on a classic slot, these are made of gold. This is the easiest symbol to hit, but none of the bars pay out that extensively. They're good top ups, but they're not the meat of the game.
After the bars comes the good stuff: the hazards. In ascending order of value, they are: Electricity Hazard, Fire Hazard, Bio Hazard and Radiation Hazard. These are all worth serious coin, with 5 Radiation Hazards potentially worth up to 10,000 coins if you hit it on a multiplier.
Five doors (reels) open leaves two doors closed. On a two coin spin, a scanner blip starts flashing backwards and forwards and stops over a random door, opening it if it's closed, and giving you an extra chance to get a combo.
But a three coin spin gives you two scanners and the possibility of opening all seven doors. When all seven doors are open, any winning is automatically given a random multiplier of up to 10x.
But most importantly, the progressive jackpot is triggered when all seven doors are open and you land 5 Radiation Hazards. Since the minimum amount you'd win if this happens is $100,000, why play less than 3 coins?
