while—5 games within a game. Reel sized symbols from the popular Bally
Blazing 7’s, Diamond Line 777’s, Triple 777’s Double Jackpot, Triple
Triple Blazing 7’s dot the screen.
Each miniature slot game has its own pay schedule that comes
into play during the bonus round on the way to the progressive jackpot.
Five separate increasing progressive jackpot bucks are
displayed at the top of the screen each labeled with the name of one of
popular slots depicted on the reels. When three or more of any of these
games show up in a
scatter sequence on the five reels, you get to play for all the
represented by the miniature slot symbols.
There are several configurations available from the
manufacturer, but most likely, you will find the 20-line penny version
bets from 200-1000 coins.
Max bet is required to get to the big jackpots, therefore,
$2-3/spin. For pennies, the top jackpot resets at $10,000.
There is sure to be a rush for a Shot at this

a nice reward.
