Bally Technologies recently released several new video and reel-spinning slot games for the domestic and international gaming markets.

The new titles just released are: Hot Lines, Lucky Mon, Secrets of the Nile and Winning for Dummies Frenzy. The two games destined for international markets are Alaskan Sun and a Spanish-language version of Lucky Mon.

Hot Lines is a five-reel, 30-line multi-denom/multi-line stepper slot on Bally’s new S9000 reel-spinning platform. It offers a 1,500-credit max bet, from three to 30 configurable lines and from one to 50 configurable credits. Available denominations range from one cent up to $25. The base game’s top award is calculated at 20,000 times the line bet times the denomination.

The game also offers both a Mystery Wild and a 15 free games bonus. Additional free games may be accrued during the free games bonus feature.

With its vivid neon graphics and assortment of zany space creatures, Lucky Mon delivers both exciting game play and a touch of whimsical fun for players. Lucky Mon is a five-reel, 25-line progressive ALPHA video slot presented on Bally’s ergonomic M9000 video cabinet.

The game features a 1,250-credit max bet, from three to 25 configurable lines and from one to 50 configurable credits. The game can be set up for denominations ranging from one cent up to $100. A single-level internal/external progressive features a reset value of 10,000 times the denomination times the line bet.

In the "Bonusmon" bonus, players are prompted to select one of three cards, revealing a bonus value up to a maximum of 100 times the total bet. The Free Games bonus awards players 15 free spins where all awards are multiplied by a factor of three. If the "Doublemon" symbol appears during the free games, all awards up to that point are doubled.

There are many rewarding mysteries to be uncovered as players take a lucrative journey to ancient Egypt in Secrets of the Nile, a dazzling new video slot also on the M9000 cabinet. Intricate graphics capture the secrecy of the pharaohs as players vie for a top award of 10,000 credits times the line bet on this five-reel, 15-line video slot.

Offering a 750-credit max bet, Secrets of the Nile offers operators a variety of configurations, including 15 configurable lines, from five to 50 configurable credits and denominations ranging from one cent up to $5. In the Lotus Flower bonus, players select a lotus flower to reveal a bonus award of from five to 150-times the total bet. Three or more scattered Pyramid symbols trigger from 10 to 50 free spins with all pays multiplied by a factor of two.

Cashing in on the popular "For Dummies" series of self-help books, the new Winning For Dummies Frenzy on the dramatic CineVision wide-screen cabinet brings a new dimension of thrilling game play to casinos.

This unique seven-reel, 50-line game offers a bonus reel in the middle of two sets of three reels; one playing from left to right and the other playing from right to left. Credits can be configured from one to 50 and denominations vary from one cent up to $100. The game’s top award is 10,000 times the line bet. Winning For Dummies Frenzy gives players several fourth-reel bonuses ranging from two to ten times the winning combination, as well as 10 and 100-pay bonuses that pay out 10 or 100 times the line bet plus the winning combination.

Another bonus re-spins the fourth center reel with a win on the first three reels to the left of the center reel or the last three reels to the right of the center reel. Reels will randomly re-spin to the same position from two to four times and re-pay the total win amount.

The dramatic splendor of an Alaskan sunrise is beautifully captured on the distinctive Alaskan Sun M9000 ALPHA video slot. This five-reel, multi-line/multi-denom game features 50 credits per line and a 1,250-credit max bet. Operators can configure Alaskan Sun with from three to 25 lines and from one to 50 credits.

Denominations range from one cent to $100. In the Alaskan Sun Pick bonus, Eskimos appearing on reels two, three and four trigger the bonus. Each Eskimo symbol in the triggering combination reveals a number from one to 10.

The numbers are multiplied by each other to yield a bonus prize of up to 1,000 times the triggering bet. In addition, 15 free games are awarded when three or more scattered igloo symbols appear from left to right. Both the Alaskan Sun and free games bonuses can be won during the free games event, adding to the remaining free games. All free games are played with the line bets that were in play when the bonus feature was triggered.
