For the Class II market, Bally Tecnhologies’ Reel Winners is a five-reel, 20-line stepper slot with a configurable 150- or 300-credit max bet. Available denominations range from one cent up to $25.
Reel Winners features a roulette-style bonus wheel that towers above the floor. Players bet in 30-credit increments, with a portion of each bet qualifying the player for either the regular Reel Game or the Instant Spin game. Higher bets either increase the total line win amounts on the Reel Game or achieve higher win amounts on the Instant Spin game. Players are in for a surprise when they hit the “Spin” button because they won’t know which game will be activated unlike traditional games where players must line up a specific sequence of reel symbols to enter the bonus round. If the Instant Spin game occurs, the 20-inch display mounted above the reels comes to life, prompting the player to look up to the bonus wheel. The ball-shaped pointer will spin around the roulette-style wheel, landing on a bonus award ranging from 100 to 50,000 credits.
Reel Winners also offers a single level internal/external progressive that resets at 100,000 credits times the line bet. Hitting five adjacent Reel Winners symbols on any pay line with max bet triggers this lucrative progressive jackpot.
