Time for a Deal slot used 25 fixed paylines, which work left to right across the reels. You will be awarded a payout for a Line Win for each winning combination on a payline.
Please take note of the difference between the Line Bet and the Total Bet:
All main game (Line Wins) payouts are displayed on the Paytable Info Page. Multiply the figure for each winning combination by the Line Bet.
A Line Win consists of three or more symbols on a payline, forming a chain starting on Reel 1.
Only the highest value winning combination is awarded on each payline. You will be paid for each Line Win on separate paylines.
Wild Symbols (Time for a Deal Symbols) will stand in for all paying symbols to make Line Wins. They can also make their own unique Line Wins with a separate payout.
Note: Wild Symbols will not substitute for Bonus or Free Games Symbols.
The Bonus Symbols appear on Reels 1, 3 and 5 only. They will award the Big Reel Bonus if three symbols land on the reels simultaneously (in any position).
Note: Bonus Symbols have no payout value.
Free Spins Symbol:
The Free Spins Symbols appear on reels 2, 4 and 5 only. They will award the Free Spins Feature if three symbols land on the reels simultaneously (in any position).
Note: Free Spins Symbols have no payout value.
Reel or Deal:
Any spin can award the Reel or Deal Feature. When it is awarded, two of the five reels will continue to spin after the other three have come to rest.
Roger – the game show host – will make an offer of a cash prize in return for the guaranteed win from the spin.
Choose Take Win to accept the cash prize, or Mystery Reel Win to play out the spin. At times, Roger can increase his offer, or show what is behind one of the Mystery Reels to influence your decision.
After you have made your choice, Roger will display what you could have won from the Mystery Reel or cash prize.
Big Reel Bonus:
In the first stage of the Big Reel Bonus, you will be prompted to pick one of three doors to reveal a coin. There are two silver coins and one gold coin, one of each behind each door.
When you have made your selection, Roger may reveal a silver coin before your selection has been revealed. This will give you the opportunity to change your selection if you wish.
The coin will be placed in the Big Deal Slot Machine. The reels will spin slowly, during which point Roger may apply a special feature like a Multiplier to one of the reels.
Each of the reels on the Big Deal Slot Machine will award a cash prize, consisting of a Multiplier of your Total Bet.
After the spin has been completed, Roger may also offer you the chance to spin one of the reels to play for a better prize.
Some of the Multiplier Symbols on the Big Deal Slot Machine have gold stars behind them. If three symbols with gold stars land on the win line, you will win the Progressive Jackpot.
The Jackpot is awarded randomly, but you will increase your chances if you play for a higher bet.
Progressive Jackpots are funded by taking small percentages from each bet on the game to grow the award. The casino will also provide a base amount, which is called a seed.
The Progressive Jackpot award is displayed on the top of the screen at all times. However, communication delays mean that the displayed prize could be slightly different to that awarded.
A message will appear on screen if another player wins the Jackpot while you are playing Time for a Deal.
Before Free Spins begin, you will be taken to a new screen to reveal the number of spins and special features.
Free Spins will start playing through automatically after you have made your selections. All payouts will be multiplied by the value of the Multiplier revealed in the previous stage of the feature. In addition, the symbol revealed as the Extra Wild in the previous stage will substitute for all other symbols during Free Spins.
After the last spin has been completed, your total win will be displayed on screen. Roger may offer you a Mystery Prize in return for your total win. This Mystery Prize could be cash, or the opportunity to replay the Free Spins with the same special features.
Note: If you elect to replay the Free Spins a second time, no offer will be made at the end of the second set of spins.
Press Continue after you have made your selection.
