TRIVIA

The gameplay is an update of the earlier games "Reel Power" and "Wizard Ways". Wicked Winnings differs from these games by having stacked symbols, where up to 3 of the same symbol may appear simultaneously on the same reel, allowing for much larger wins despite having the same paytable. When a stacked win occurs, a bell is rung.

This game is notorious for having lots of lag when a large Raven win occurs, as the MK5's graphics hardware cannot keep up with so many animations playing at once.

UPDATES

A MK6 version of the original Wicked Winnings was also released, not to be confused with the Power Pay variant on the same hardware.
