Vegas Delights

This is the latest game in Ainsworth’s Big Hit Bonanza series, featuring a top progressive jackpot that is won through a unique re-spin event.

The base game, featured on any of the company’s A600 series of cabinets, is a five-reel video slot in 25-line or 50-line configuration. The top LCD monitor displays a top progressive Grand Jackpot resetting at $5,000 and three bonus prizes—the Mini at $10, the Minor at $50 and the Major at $150.

During any paid game, six, seven, eight or nine scattered Gaming chip symbols trigger the Big Hit Feature, awarding three free re-spins. Randomly, an Extra Bonus Big Hit feature will trigger to award three re-spins with a big chip symbol over the three middle reels counting as nine chips toward the Grand Jackpot.

Every chip symbol awarded during the triggering spin is held in position to count toward the Grand Jackpot. Every chip that triggered the feature is held in position and awards one or two free games. Additional chips that appear during re-spins award one or two free games. If one or more additional chip symbols appear, they are held in position and award a random bonus credit prize, and the re-spins are reset to three.

The feature continues until no re-spins remain or until 15 chips are accumulated to trigger the Grand Jackpot. At the end of the feature, the bonus credits are awarded and the accumulated free spins begin.

Free games accumulate through the Big Hit features display chip symbols on the first and fifth reels only.

The static bonus awards are won through a separate trigger—three Bonus symbols on any paid game randomly triggers the Major, Minor or Mini prize.
