999.9 Gold Wheel: Money Rush

This is the latest in Aruze’s 999.9 Gold Wheel series of progressive reel-spinning slots featuring a classic bonus wheel. It is a five-reel, 30-line game centered around a very frequent wheel-spinning bonus—according to the manufacturer, the wheel bonus occurs once every 40 spins, on average.

As other games in the series, Money Rush features an elegant sculpted top cabinet depicting gold bars surrounding the main bonus wheel. There are four progressive jackpots, which can be won through the wheel spin, either on primary-game or free-spin bonus events.

Three scattered “SPIN” symbols on the reels trigger a spin on the Gold Wheel. The wheel slices contain credit prizes of 200, 300, 400, 500, 750, 1,000, 1,200, 1,500, 2,000 and 3,000.

The wheel also contains slices corresponding to the four progressives. The levels of those progressives rise with the chosen bet multiplier (the per-line wager). The player can wager one, two, three, five or 10 credits per line, and the progressive meters change according to the bet. One credit per line returns a Mini jackpot resetting at $10, a Minor starting at $30, a Major starting at $100 or the Grand jackpot, resetting at $999.

Raising the bet increases the jackpot level proportionately. The maximum 10-credit bet multiplier returns jackpots resetting at $100, $300, $500 or $9,999.

Three scattered cash symbols on the middle reels trigger the Money Rush Free Games. The player is awarded eight free spins, with all wins tripled. Also, if the Gold Wheel is triggered during a free spin, all credit amounts on the wheel are tripled—that means the wheel, in addition to the four progressives, contains credit wins ranging from 600 to 9,000.

If the wheel lands on one of the four jackpots, it spins again. The wheel bonus continues until the wheel lands on a credit amount.
