The game will feature the popular Mighty Cash™ feature, as well as a $500,000 progressive start-up jackpot, according to a statement Wednesday. It will be unveiled in booth #1141 at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E), the casino industry trade show that begins October 8 in Las Vegas.

The flame55 is complete with a 55″ double-curved HD monitor – the largest portrait double-curved display in the non-jumbo segment – ergonomic engineering, 4k-capable display, 2.1 stereo audio, individually controlled dynamic infinity edge LED lighting, a virtual button deck, and an exclusive beacon sign package.
