If ascending the pyramid to riches is your cup of tea, try out IGT’s new The $1,000,000 Pyramid machine. If you make it all the way to the top, you could become an instant millionaire.

Based on one of the most successful game shows in television history, The $1,000,000 Pyramid is a 5-reel, 9-line, 90-credit nickel MegaJackpots video game. It features the fabulous prizes, symbols and challenges familiar to the show’s viewers, as well as a wealth of theme music and sounds from the studio audience.

Here’s how you play (and win): You can multiply your win by landing Double Double symbols, you take home the top award, as animated versions of the host chime, “That’s excellent!”

But there’s more: If you get three Winner’s Circle Bonus symbols on reels one, two and three on a played line with max coins bet, you have a chance to win the $1,000,000 MegaJackpots Instant Winners top prize. With the TV show’s genial host giving you instructions and encouragement, you make a max-coin bet and choose seven selections from the pyramid of blue boxes on the Winner’s Circle Bonus screen. Then, one at a time, the boxes you choose turn over, revealing pyramid symbol steps up the bonus value that’s highlighted in the top box pyramid. If the seventh pyramid symbol lights up the $1,000,000 Pyramid topper, you win a million bucks.

IGT also have a great new game for poker players: 3-Way Action Poker. The game is a cool combination of 5-Card Stud, Draw Poker and 7-Card Stud with triple your chances to win. It starts with a 5-Card Stud hand, then phases into a Draw poker hand (hold and draw). The third chance to win occurs with the last two cards.
