The main feature of this game is the 3 reels, each of which has 16 positions - much like a normal fruit machine. To win you need to match 3 symbols. This can be achieved using extra features such as nudges and holds. Throughout the game you will be awarded nudges at random, which allow you to step down the reels for a greater chance of obtaining a 3-of-a-kind win. Once a win is achieved you are entered onto the feature game, which is explained later.

The feature board becomes active when you have a full trail on the main board, or when you successfully obtain a 3-of-a-kind win either using holds, nudges or the win spinning in by itself.

The feature board consists of 3 columns - features, cash, and shots. You must gamble as high as you dare using the number reel and correctly guessing whether or not the next number will be higher or lower.
