    TRIVIA
    This game is similar to the "Dolphin Treasure" series in terms of reel placement.

    SCORING
    All pays are left to right except scattered Clocks which pay any.

    Guard substitutes for all symbols except scattered Clocks. All wins with the Guard substituting are doubled.

    Guard: 2 = 10, 3 = 300, 4 = 3000, 5 = 30000
    Crown: 2 = 2, 3 = 25, 4 = 100, 5 = 800
    Flag: 2 = 2, 3 = 25, 4 = 100, 5 = 800
    Bus: 3 = 20, 4 = 100, 5 = 500
    Telephone: 3 = 15, 4 = 75, 5 = 400
    Lantern: 3 = 12, 4 = 50, 5 = 250
    Sign: 3 = 10, 4 = 50, 5 = 250
    King: 3 = 5, 4 = 50, 5 = 125
    Queen: 3 = 5, 4 = 25, 5 = 100
    Jack: 3 = 5, 4 = 25, 5 = 100
    Ten: 3 = 5, 4 = 25, 5 = 100
    Nine: 2 = 2, 3 = 5, 4 = 25, 5 = 100
    Clock: 2 = 2, 3 = 5, 4 = 25, 5 = 1000

    Big Ben Jackpot Feature:

    Credit prizes are multiplied by total credits bet when the feature started.

    1 strike = 2 (x bet)
    2 strikes = 4
    3 strikes = 6
    4 strikes = 8
    5 strikes = 10
    6 strikes = 12
    7 strikes = 14
    8 strikes = 16
    9 strikes = 18
    10 strikes = 20
    11 strikes = 25
    12 strikes = JACKPOT

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    • Gamble Feature:
    When a win comes up, you are given the change to bet on the credits you've just won.
    The gamble feature allows you to select either the full amount, or you can select a half gamble by toggling the Gamble button. If a half gamble is chosen with an odd number, the gamble is rounded (a 5 credit win = a 3 credit gamble; a win gives you 8 credits, but a loss will leave you with the remaining 2 credits).
    If you select the right colour (Red or Black), your win is doubled. If you select the right suit (Heart, Diamond, Club or Spade), your win is quadrupled. If you select the wrong item, you lose the gamble and it goes back to the main game.
    You can take a win at any time, but if you win 5 times in the one gamble feature, the game ends automatically. You can't gamble more than $10,000 however (but, would you?!).
    If you win a progressive jackpot on the machine, including the Big Ben jackpot, you can't gamble the win, even if you actually won credits on the same spin the jackpot went off. This game doesn't generally have a jackpot, it's up to the gaming venue if it's hooked up to one or not.

    • Free games feature
    Spinning up 3, 4 or 5 Clocks anywhere on the screen triggers 15, 20 or 25 free games respectively. During the free games, all wins are doubled.

    Free games and the Big Ben jackpot feature can also be won during the feature.

    If the free games are triggered with Clocks on reels 1 and 5, you win the jackpot feature first, then it goes into the free games.

    • Big Ben jackpot
    Spinning up a Clock on reels 1 and 5 triggers the jackpot feature. To win the jackpot, the game must chime 12 times. If the clocks don't go all the way up to 12, you win a bonus prize multiplied by your bet when the clocks came up.

    When the jackpot is won, the jackpot resets to 5000 credits (in dollar value depending on machine - a 1c game is $50, but a 5c game is $250). The Big Ben jackpot is limited to a maximum of $750 regardless of denomination.
