1901, the first person to ride over the falls in a wooden pickle
barrel – a 63-year-old widowed schoolteacher by the name of Annie
Edson Taylor – famously survived the plunge. Fourteen others (that

style of the machine and its multitude of delectable fruits, combined
with a 1930’s musical score, will instantly transport players back in
time to a bygone era. The game’s graphics mimic old-school machines
perfectly, right down to the crooked notification panel that pops up
to display the value of any winning spin.
let’s take a look at the multitude of features Yggdrasil endowed this
exciting new slots game with.
Falls Free Spins
barrel is the bonus symbol, appearing on reels 1, 3 and 5. When one
appears on each of those reels, it triggers 5 Free Spins. During free
games, the bonus reel segments (see below) at the bottom can only
contain the word WILD. If the word WILD appears during a spin, the
entire reel above it will feature a Sticky Stacked Barrel Wild that
remains in place until free games are over.
Coin Drop Bonus
each reel is a separate, smaller reel that contains various bonus
names; Wild, Stacked Spins, Shake, Free Spins, Win Multiplier (Win
x2, x3, x4 or x5). Randomly during any spin, a gold coin can land on
the 5th reel. When it does, it activates the Lucky Coin Drop Bonus.
The coin is dropped in the top of the machine and falls through the
slots, bouncing its way down into one of the bottom reel segments. If
that segment has a bonus name on it, the corresponding feature is
Wild: Coin trail symbols replaced with wilds.
Free Spins: Niagara Falls free spins trigger.
Shake: 1 Shake Bonus added to shake counter; maximum 5 shakes held per bet level. Accumulated Shakes automatically trigger during random Cash Fall Bonus (see below).
Stacked Spin: Activates 1 free Re-spin with stacked symbols.
Multiplier Bonus: Current win pays out at the multiplier on display (i.e. Win x3)
that weren’t enough bonuses already, there’s one more to look out
for. The Cash Fall Bonus is a random feature that can trigger after
any spin, so long as no other bonus is active. When it does, the
reels turn dark with coins raining down from above. All the coins
bounce down the peg board into the slots below, labeled 1x or with a
blank. Coins that land in the 1x section award 1 credit, added to the
prize meter. Those landing in a blank section award nothing.
also possible for a Super Coin to fall. If it does, and it lands in a
slot marked 1x, it will increase the slot to 2x, doubling the value
of all subsequent coins that fall into that slot. If it lands in a
blank slot, it will change it to 1x.
all coins have fallen, any accumulated Shake bonuses will trigger,
urging additional coins to cascade down the screen before it’s over.
