Shopping Spree II is a progressive slots jackpot that may be won at online casinos that have games from Realtime Gaming. We have been tracking this jackpot since November 2010.
The sequel to the original Shopping Spree progressive slot, Shopping Spree 2 is a fixed 9-line, $2.25 game with a progressive jackpot which can be played at most casinos powered by Real Time Gaming (RTG) software. In order to win the jackpot, you must line up five diamond rings on a payline which features a '20x sale tag' wild symbol.
The 'sale tag' wild symbol is the key to accessing all of the meaningful wins on this machine: without the tag, you can win 5,000 credits for five diamond rings, 2,500 for five shopping ladies and 1,000 credits for five dollar signs. However, if the same results occur on lines with the 20x sale tag, you receive the progressive jackpot, 50,000 credits, and 20,000 credits respectively.
The free/bonus game begins when three Shopping Spree II scatter symbols appear anywhere on the five reels. This activates the free spins bonus round, where you can receive 100, 200, 300, 400 and 500 credit bonuses. Once the free game is over, you receive 3 bonus spins for each 1000 points earned during the free spins. This is where you have a chance to really pile up your winnings, as the third reel is composed entirely of sale tags, which can substitute all symbols.
At first glance, fans of the original Shopping Spree will immediately notice the souped-up graphics as there are now diamond-studded watches and sunglasses in addition to cell phones and VIP credit cards. The new jackpot is more in line with traditional slot standards, compared to the original version which features the choice of either a progressive jackpot or a $100,000 New York shopping spree. Naturally it is a matter of personal taste but in this case we think the sequel is better than the original.
