“Home Sweet Home” and “Home is where the Heart is” are famous quotes for this IGT video slot game called Welcome Home. Welcome Home has 5 video reels with 20 paylines. The maximum award is 500,000 credits is when Welcome Home are on a payline and when the maximum bet of 50 credits per line is wagered for a total bet of 1000 credits. Some of the symbols are the Welcome Home symbol, girl home, beach home, mountain home, for sale sign, stereo, television, refrigerator, clock, lazy boy chair, pool table, stove and washer. This game has two bonus games, House Hunting bonus and the Home Furnishing bonus.
The House Hunting bonus is initiated when three, four, or five scattered For Sale Sign symbols are shown. A number of icons (symbols) equal to the number of initiating symbols is displayed on the winning payline. The slot player then selects an icon (symbol). Each time an icon or symbol is selected either a pay or a pay with “Offer Accepted” is revealed. Each icon is available for repeated selection until “Offer Accepted” is revealed. The bonus ends and the sum of all pays is awarded when all icons display “Offer Accepted.” All wins are multiplied by the total bet on the initiating game.
The Home Furnishings bonus is iniated when three Home Furnishings symbols are displayed on a played payline. If the initiating combination appears on more than one played line, upon completion of the bonus, the total bonus award is multiplied by the total number of initiating lines. Free spins are played automatically using different reels than the base game. Free spin wins are paid from the bonus paytable for any three matching symbols in any position on the reels. When three matching symbols appear on the same horizontal position on the reels, the pay is multiplied by a multiplier. All free spins contain at least one pay. Any spin that does not result in a pay is not displayed. The bonus ends when three Close Sign symbols appear anywhere on the screen or after 100 paying free spins have been played. All wins are multiplied by the initiating line bet.
