Players who wish to play the real money version will have to have a real money account at the casino of their choice before they can play this game. The game is a coin based game, and players have the choice of wagering coins of value ranging from $0.25 to $5, with one coin on every activated payline. Since the minimum wager is $0.25 per spin, many low rollers enjoy playing this game. The highest wager allowed is $45, and so the game does not attract many high rollers. Players who wager coins worth $5 on the game stand the chance to win $50,000 when they hit the jackpot or $5000 as the second highest payout.
