Big Money Top Line is a 3 reel game played on 5 win lines on the base game and 5 win lines on the top game stakes. Jokers are wild on the top game stakes and substitute for all symbols except mysteries and the top line overprints. There is also a "Half Risk" button which allows the player to gamble half the amount won and bank the remainder, (bottom game only).
The game is designed to work in conjunction with a progressive Bonus feature top box which generates the random numbers used by each game connected to the system. A percentage of all credits staked are transferred to the Top Line Bonus. The maximum win panel shows 160,000Kc.
This is a standard reel based game played on five win lines. Wins are awarded for three of a kind fruits. The player has the choice to select either a 2 or a 5 stake award card.
Base Reel Game Gamble
Once the player has achieved a reel win, this may be either gambled or saved to CREDIT. The gamble is illustrated on the Dot Matrix display (and on the cards panel on the glass), as a toggled 50/50 "double or nothing" gamble, whereby the player presses the "Risk" button to attempt the gamble. The gamble routine terminates when either the player simply loses, or advances to a value, where the next win value would exceed that of the Jackpot. At this point the win is automatically transferred to CREDIT.
On the reels are dedicated mystery symbols (coins). When 3 appear criss-crossed, the player is awarded a value between 5Kc and 500Kc.
During the gamble, the player can collect half of their winnings by pressing the Half Risk button. Half of the current win value is transferred to CREDIT allowing the player to continue gambling with the other half.
Top Line Bonus
On the reels are overprinted "Top Line" symbols. If three appear on a win line the player is awarded the value shown in the separate Top Line Bonus display above the machine(s).
