Amazing Race

IGT's Amazing Race is a 5-reel, 50 pay line game with a 300 credit max bet.  There are 4 progressive jackpots and 3 bonus rounds.  The slot bank is fitted with multiple LDC layers and surround sound seating grouped in a 4 player slot bank. 

Voice over and video from the show's host, Phil Keoghan, helps guide you through the game.  All bonus and base play games are modeled on the show.

In the base game, the End2End feature creates an added plus as stacked symbols on separate reels transform the symbols in between to the same icon creating big credit wins.  The game is designed to create the feeling that the players are competing against each other in a race around the world.  However, since this is a slot and the results are completely random, all player decisions create a positive outcome.

Bonus Rounds:

Ticket Challenge Bonus is a group play bonus were all players "dig" through a pile of sand searching for tickets.  As the timer counts down, the ticket value decreases but accumulated credits increase until the ticket is discovered.

Around the World Instant Bonus occurs randomly during base game play.  A plane flies around the spinning earth rewarding a multiplier and bonus credit values which are applied to any line wins from the current base game spin.

Group Challenge Bonus is triggered by hitting 3 scattered Amazing Race icons on the reels.  This is another group play bonus round.  Each player is awarded 5 free games in which the you accumulate miles and credits that advance you in the continental race.  To advance in this bonus, you must find Mileage Metres which increase your travel distance.

For each destination you reach, you win its corresponding progressive and 5 additional free spins toward the next leg of the race.

As an added plus, during this bonus round, you may randomly be awarded a detour.  In this, you are offered tickets with either credit values, extra miles to contribute to the Mileage Metres or fast forwards which advance you straight to the next destination and its corresponding progressive.  You must select from the tickets until you find 2 matching symbols, then you are given that award.
