Criss Cross Max Power

Published: 08/06/2013

Perhaps best known for bringing popular land-based fruit machines to the Internet, JPM Interactive has also developed a series of online Progressive Jackpot slots under the banner “Max Power.” Among these is “Criss Cross Max Power,” a 3-reel, 27-payline game with traditional fruit symbols on its reels.

Criss Cross Max Power has three reels displayed off-centre to the left of the screen, making room for the Paytable and Turbo Cash multiplier ladder on the right. At the top right is the “Max Power Progressive” indicator with the “Winnings” counter just below it. At the top left is the “Max Power Bonus” display, which remains shuttered until triggered by the game.

The player’s “Credit” counter is just below the reels, and five circular control buttons in different colours are spaced at equal intervals across the bottom of the screen: yellow “Collect,” red “Max Stake,” blue “Turbo Cash,” orange “Turbo Play” and green “Start.” Below the Paytable is the “Stake” indicator with up/down arrows for setting the wager per spin from £0.25 to £10. There is also an “Auto Play” indicator to the right of the Stake, which can be used to set the number of automated spins between 5 and 100.

There is no need to select the number of lines in play. Each spin always features 27 paylines, representing all possible combinations of reel positions across the three reels. The payout table shows the amounts that can be won for catching three matching symbols on a payline. Cherries and Lemons pay odds of 1X, Oranges and Pears are worth 2X, and Plums and Strawberries yield 5X. Aligning three Bells is worth 10X, three Grapes pay 15X and three Watermelons are valued at 20X. Catching three Blue Sevens pays 30X, while three Red Sevens are worth 40X. The top prize of 50X goes for matching three Yellow Stars. There are no Wild symbols on the reels.

Following each win, a child’s voice can be heard laughing and the player has the option to use the Turbo Cash feature. Music plays and lights flash in the Credit display. If the player wants to simply keep the amount won, clicking on the yellow “Collect” button will deposit the winnings to the player’s funds and reset the game for the next spin. Otherwise, the player may gamble the amount won to gain higher multipliers on the Turbo Cash ladder by clicking the blue Turbo Cash button at the bottom of the screen.

A successful click on the Turbo Cash button will increase the winnings to 2X and step the multiplier on the ladder up accordingly. The player may again click on Turbo Cash to attempt to gain the 3X rung if successful or fall back to 1X upon losing. This process continues with the multiplier moving up or down until all is lost or Collect is clicked or the tenth and top rung marked “Super Turbo Cash” is reached. Super Turbo Cash is an offer to double up again or to half gamble. In either event, the ladder journey ends here.

Note that the Turbo Cash feature is available during Auto Play mode, too. However, the player must make a selection manually within 10 seconds of the triggering win; otherwise the game will default to Collect.

One special feature of Criss Cross Max Power is its Max Power Bonus. This is triggered any time a Max Power Logo symbol appears on each of the three reels in any position. The shuttered display above the reels will open to reveal a fast-moving cityscape scene in dark silhouette. The buildings passing by are marked with multipliers and some of them are brightly lit with Max Power Logos. The object is to click and stop the scene at a building with the highest multiplier possible, which will be applied to the entire triggering Stake. Catching the Max Power Logo wins the Progressive Jackpot.
