There’s no special win condition regarding the progressive jackpot. Players can win it after any regular winning spin.
This movie themed progressive jackpot video slot comes with Wilds and Scatters. Whenever a wild symbol is part of a winning line, or in other whenever it substitutes for another symbol to form a winning line that prize is multiplied by 2. However, the wild must be positioned on reel number 3 in order to act as a multiplier. Unlike other progressive slots A Nightmare on Elm Street has two jackpots. One is called A Nightmare on Elm Street and the other is named by Freddy Krueger. Both jackpots are given at random.
The scatter symbol is represented with Freddy’s claw of knives. Hitting 3, 4 or 5 of these symbols will give the player 10, 20 or 30 Free Spins respectively. The Free Spins feature can’t be retriggered.
Hitting 5 Wild Symbols on an active payline rewards you with 10,000 times your bet.
One of the special features is called Never Sleep Again. It gets activated by hitting 3 bonus symbols. The bonus game shows different items on the screen and you as the player should choose one of the following to stay awake: coffee, TV or a Phone. The longer you stay awake and the more items you collect the bigger the ending winnings amount will be.
The 2nd bonus feature is called Elm Street Pick Me bonus feature. It is what the title says, a pick feature. Players should choose one or several of the offered poisons or potions. Like in the previous bonus feature the more items you select the higher the prize will be.
