After getting a winning combination the Gamble button on a control panel lights up. Pressing it starts a risk game. This round begins with an appearance of the inverted pyramid divided into five horizontal bars. The lowermost starts to flicker. If a gambler hits the double button while it’s highlighted – his payoff will be doubled. Bonus round continues and the next bar starts flickering. If he fails to hit a bar in time then he loses his last payoff.
When at least 3 Scatters appear anywhere on the screen it triggers free spins for a gambler. The number of spins depends on Scatter symbol combination:
3 Scatters – 10 spins;
4 Scatters – 12 spins;
