Yeah, I used to ignore 88 Fortunes and Dancing Drums at my casino because I am only interested in advantage machines. But lately I've started taking notes as to the jackpot amounts of these games, and I am trying to create a "highest I've ever seen the Grand/Major/etc. jackpot" record to get a feel for what is a much greater jackpot than usual to inform my decision to perhaps go after one.

Exactly what I do on Rakin Bacon. There is an opportunity there for sure!

The rule screens on 88 Fortunes say, "10 Free Games are triggered by 3 or more (gong symbols) left to right."

Please note there are Gongs on all five reels and the player also wins a fixed pay according to the number he gets from 3 to 5.

How do you interpret that as the requirement to play the free games bonus.

1. There must be gongs on reels 1, 2, and 3.
2. The gongs must be on consecutive reels (for example, reels 2, 3 and 4 would count, but reels 1, 3, and 4 would not).

Thank you.

I have seen similar rules page language used to describe bonus feature initiations similar to scenario 1.

The gong sound did not happen with a no-gong reel 1 when a gong appeared in a later reel, which would seem to confirm.
May the cards fall in your favor.

I think any 3 reels work. Even 1 3 and 5 would work. May be wrong.

Just a thought: If the Mini JP goes up 2 cents for every spin when betting 88 coins, but goes up 20 cents for every spin when betting $8.80, will the Mini JP go 10X higher over reset value before getting hit? Say the last JP hit at $16.50 based on previous play from unknown players, would the guy betting 10X run the Mini up to $75 before hitting?
$16.50 - $10 = $6.50
$6.50/$0.02 = 325 spins before hitting
325 spins before hitting x $0.20 = $65.00
$65 + $10 = $75

But it’s not a real opportunity, right? Because these machines aren’t “due.”

I just put together a video on 88 Fortunes. I doubt this will interest any advantage players, it's more of a basic tutorial how the game works. I welcome all comments and corrections.

Enjoy!

You are wrong. On 88 fortunes, you have to line the gong symbols up from left to right starting at reel 1.

Ie: You get the bonus for getting gongs on Reels 1, 2 and 3 or Reels, 1, 2, 3 and 4 or Reels 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.
