With this game, Bally reprises one of its most popular reel-spinners in the advanced “Alpha Elite” video platform. The game is a 20-line or 30-line video slot with the familiar mechanical top-box “Millionaire Ladder” bonus display.
The game is available either in Bally’s V20 cabinet (20-inch video monitor) or on the “CineVision” wide-screen, slant-top cabinet.
The base game is available in a penny version with a 300-credit max bet or a nickel version with a 60-credit max bet. The top jackpot is a multi-site progressive resetting at $1 million. The primary-game “Millionaire Sevens Wild Bonus” feature is triggered by a “Jokers Bonus” symbol appearing in any position on the fifth reel. This creates four “Jokers Wild” symbols that randomly land on four reel symbols, with the result re-calculated as a bonus.
As with the reel-spinner, the progressive is won through the main “Ladder Bonus” feature, by climbing the entire bonus ladder, which has multiplier amounts ranging from 2X to 500X-the amounts are multiplied by the total bet-under the progressive “rung.” Reaching the progressive rung with less than a maximum bet on the triggering spin multiplies the total bet by 1,000 for the bonus.
“Millionaire Sevens” symbols scattered on the first, third and fifth reels trigger the bonus. Seven cards appear on the screen face-down, and the player selects one. That card advances the player from one to three spaces on the ladder. The process then repeats, with the player selecting cards and advancing up the ladder until he either turns over a card bearing a “Collect” symbol or reaches the progressive rung.
