AC Coin has had much success with the game “The Munny Returns,” so the slot-maker placed a similar pay table and program math into its most popular format, the “Big Roller” series begun by the game Bankroll, to form the new game “The QH”-it stands for “Quick Hit.”
The base pay table is from IGT’s Double Sizzling 7s, one of that manufacturer’s most popular titles, in a fivereel, 25-line penny stepper format. The mechanical topbox bonus features the familiar bonus-game display (similar to former “scrolling” displays, but this one does not scroll), displaying credit amounts and multipliers up to 20X.
As the name implies, the bonus events are remarkably frequent-every seven spins, on average, with maximum bet wagered, the player goes into the Quick Hit Bonus with two “QH” symbols scattered on the middle reels. The top-box bonus amounts remain stationary, and all the amounts light up. They go out one by one, and the last award square illuminated goes to the player. The average bonus on this event is 149 credits.
Every 63 spins on average, a “Double Bonus” event is triggered with three scattered bonus symbols on the middle reels. The bonus display’s 16 award values flash as the middle multiplier strip spins. When the strip stops, the award squares randomly go out. The last one to stay lit is the winning amount. Then, the multiplier squares flash until one is lit to combine with the amount for the multiplied bonus. The average bonus in this event is 1,553 credits.
