Money Talks

Money Talks is the latest Bally game to feature the video wheel first seen on the hit slots Cash Spin and Hot Spin. Presented on the Alpha Elite V32 cabinet—which uses the 32-inch vertical monitor—the game uses the award-winning “U-Spin” feature, in which players physically touch the giant wheel displayed on the vertical screen to spin it. Thanks to a technology called “gesture control,” the wheel spins at a speed corresponding to the pressure applied by the player.

The base game is a three-reel, 27-line game with a progressive top jackpot that resets at $5,000. There are three separate bonus features.

The main Wheel Bonus is triggered every 73 spins, on average, by a U-Spin Wheel symbol within one position of the center payline on the third reel. The player gets one spin of the giant wheel, for a credit award or a free-spin bonus. The top jackpot also is on the wheel. If the Free Games slice lands, the player is awarded from 10 to 50 free spins. Players spin the wheel to determine a credit value which is awarded for each money bag hit during the free games.

The other event is the Pick Bonus, triggered by three scattered money bag symbols. The player is prompted to select one of the three money bags, to reveal either a credit award, an additional pick or free games.

According to the manufacturer, the average awards are 4,670 credits at max bet for the Wheel Bonus, 7,422 credits at max bet for the Free Games, and 1,520 credits on the pick bonus. Money Talks is available in denominations ranging from pennies through $200.
