Mr. Money Bags Slots

Most new slot machine releases are multi pay line machines
with bonus rounds, flashy new features, and second and third
screen games. It seems like the slot machine companies are in a
race to see how many pay lines they can cram into one machine.

So when a new single pay line slots game is released it
almost comes as a shock. It’s even more of a shock if the game
becomes as popular as Mr. Moneybags has become in such a short
time.

We’ve always enjoyed single line slots because they’re
usually simple and they help us forget about everything else in
the world for a few minutes. All we have to do is spin the reels
and wait for the symbols to line up.

Many of the newer video slot machines are so complicated that
we have a hard time figuring out which combinations win and how
much they pay.

Based on early reports about its popularity, Mr. Moneybags
looks like it’s here to stay.

Mr. Money Bags Meets the Easy Money Jackpot

In July 2015, Video Gaming Technologies Inc., VGT, launched
the company’s first wide area progressive jackpot slot machine
network.

The Easy Money Jackpot is included on 8 distinctive slots,
the most popular of which is Mr. Money Bags.

We love bonus spins, but what we like most about Mr. Money
Bags slot machine is that every spin we get a shot at a
progressive jackpot. This jackpot resets at $250,000 and climbs
until it’s hit.

Along with Mr. Money Bags, the Easy Money Jackpot is fed by 7
of VGT’s most popular slot machines:

  • 777 Bourbon Street
  • Crazy Cherry
  • Hot Red Ruby
  • King of Coin
  • Lucky Ducky
  • Reel Fever
  • Smooth as Silk

The Sooner State Adopts Mr. Money Bags

The Easy Money Jackpot was initially rolled out in 11 tribal
casinos located in Oklahoma, but in less than a year the program
has brought Mr. Money Bags to players in several dozen locations
throughout the state. Almost every tribal casino in Oklahoma
offers Mr. Money Bags slot machines as part of VGT’s first entry
into the wide area progressive marketplace.

You can also play any Mr. Money Bags machine at the following
casinos in other states.

  1. Wyandotte Nation Casino in Kansas City, Kansas
  2. The Choctaw Nations Casino in Dry Prong, Louisiana
  3. Ho Chunk Casino in Madison, Wisconsin

In a press release, VGT company president Jay Sevigny said:

“We are thrilled to introduce the Easy Money Jackpot wide
area progressive. Players across Oklahoma know and love our
games, and now they also have the chance to win a progressive
jackpot that starts at $250,000.00, all just for playing the
games they already love!”

The Mechanics of a Mr. Money Bags Session

Mr. Money Bags is billed by VGT as “our most popular” single
pay line, three reel mechanical slot machine.

Betting increments for Mr. Money Bags begin at $0.25 credits
and move up to $0.50, $1, $2, $3, $5, $10, and $25, allowing
players with different bankrolls to play the game. You can
decide between betting one, two, or three credits on each spin.
For each of these wager selections the maximum payout on a Mr.
Money Bags machine is 2,500 credits.

The three reels on Mr. Money Bags machines display the
traditional slot symbols, including one bar, two bar, three bar,
cherries, a seven, and of course, the man himself. Mr. Money
Bags is depicted as a slick, suit-wearing businessman smoking a
cigar while clinging to a wad of cold, hard cash. The bags of
money at his feet give players an idea of what awaits the winner
of the Easy Money Jackpot.

When you see a single Mr. Money Bags symbol appearing
alongside any winning combination, the payout is automatically
doubled. Two Mr. Money Bags symbols in a winning combination
provides players with a bonus of four times the regular payout.

Mr. Money Bags’ Red Screen Free Spin Bonus

Mr. Money Bags includes one of VGT’s signature slot features:
the Red Screen Free Spin Bonus.

Randomly generated throughout every session following a win
and payout, or a spin in which none of your reels land on the
pay line, this bonus is signaled by the reel screen suddenly
flashing red. The reels spin again, costing you no credits, and
every Red Screen Free Spin Bonus produces a winning combination
which will amount to at least the original win.

Players who log regular sessions on the Mr. Money Bags slot
circuit have noticed a few interesting patterns regarding the
Red Screen Free Spin Bonus. Most players report a flashing red
screen appearing on approximately one out of every five winning
spins. The amount of free bonus spins players receive can also
vary between one and five, so every Red Screen Free Spin Bonus
offers a unique experience in terms of payout.

VGT’s “Live Call Bingo” Slot Engine

While playing Mr. Money Bags, you’ll notice a small screen
directly above the reel that includes a standard bingo card.
Below the bingo card is a series of small numbers which
alternate between flashing yellow or white print.

This may be a bit confusing at first, as the action on the
bingo card doesn’t appear to make much of a difference in your
slot session. The numbers keep changing and your card fills up
over time, but for most players there seems to be no connection
between the spinning reels and the numbers flashing just above.

Mr. Money Bags is a “Class II Bingo Slot Machine”, which is a
legal term derived from the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act
authorizing Native American tribes to operate tribal casinos.
Under the law, games included in Class II like bingo can be
played in locations where local tribal gaming compacts are not
present. Traditional slot machines are included in Class III,
and thus can only be played in casinos under the stewardship of
tribal gaming compacts.

Casino industry expert Frank Legato explains the difference
between these machines in his article “The Reel Deel”:

Excerpt from Frank Legato's Article 'The Reel Deel'

For fans of Mr. Money Bags, the legal minutiae don’t matter
at all, because the live call bingo program appearing on their
screens represent the random number generator used to determine
the reels’ outcome on any given spin.

Summary & Other Mr. Money Bags Games

Mr Moneybags seems to be a perennial favorite among Class II
slots at tribal casinos. Even if you usually play multiple pay
line machines, the special Red Screen Bonus round adds another
dimension to this single pay line machine that most players
like.

Always play the maximum coins per spin to unlock all of the
possible pay outs. If you’re not comfortable at higher bet
levels when you bet maximum coins play for a lower per bet
amount.
