This game is Bally’s latest take on community play—in this case, two-person play. The game is formatted as a wide-screen video with a love-seat-style bench that fits two players. There is one large spin button in the middle—it is what Bally calls “Cooperative Play.”
On the screen are two 25-line reel sets, although the math is worked out as a 50-line game. The first reel set contains lines 1-25; the second, lines 26-50. Wagers must be made on both sides to activate the game—there are “Easy Select” buttons that assure enough is wagered to activate all the paylines. The reel sets land combinations independently of each other until the bonus event lands.
Bonus symbols on the first, third and fifth reel of either game screen trigger three free games and three picks from 12 “mystery locks.” The dual screen disappears and the mystery locks appear across the wide screen. The players select locks to unveil additional free games, multipliers or additional picks. The players continue to select locks until the picks are exhausted.
The free-spin round includes a reel symbol that awards five additional free games. This can keep awarding extra games up to a total of 50 free spins.
This is also a “Quick Hit” progressive game. There are four progressive jackpot levels. The three lower progressives are won by five, six or seven Quick Hit symbols on either individual reel set (or both). Five Quick Hit symbols win a progressive resetting at $10; six symbols, at $25; seven symbols, at $150.
Thirteen or more Quick Hit symbols across both reel sets combined trigger the top progressive jackpot, which resets at $10,000.
