Bring all the fun of the fair to your desktop with Shoot-O-Rama, the fairground themed, 5 reel progressive slot from Wagerlogic. Popcorn, balloons, ice-cream and hotdogs conjure up images of long lazy days spend at the fair, and to add to the nostalgic theme, the slot even features a shooting gallery style bonus round.
Shoot-O-Rama is a fixed coin 25 cents slot, with the option to play up to five coins on five pay lines. To win the progressive jackpot, you need to line up of five of the red, white and blue dart symbols on any active pay line. Unlike many progressive slots, you do not need to be playing max bet in order to win the jackpot, so long as the line that the dart symbols appear on is in play then the jackpot will be paid.
The bonus symbol on Shoot-O-Rama is the red and white striped bag of popcorn. Line up five bags on popcorn on an active line and you will enter the sideshow bonus round, where you get to shoot balloons with darts to win cash prizes. On each bonus round you have to choose which of the six balloons to aim for. You only receive one dart for each bonus round and depending on your choice of target you win between 10 and 125 coins, so pick wisely! Even if the bonus round is triggered on multiple lines, you only receive one shot at the round, however your chance of winning a bigger prizes is increased.
One of the features of Shoot-O-Rama is that symbols need not line up in order for a win to be paid – they can be on any position on a pay line. For example, two dart symbols anywhere on the pay line would return 4 coins, as would three hot-dogs irrespective of position. With only five basic reel symbols, plus the bonus icon – it’s hard not to win on Shoot-O-Rama!
The minimum jackpot is set at $20,000 (or currency equivalent), offering an excellent potential return on a relatively low stake. The progressive is won on average every six weeks, and the average jackpot win is between $30,000 and $40,000, although the jackpot has reached over $170,000. The winner of this record breaking jackpot was a player from the UK who won $175,404 in May 2004, playing a $1.25, 5 coin wager. Incidentally, the lucky time to play this slot seems to be in the month of May – a jackpot of $68,203 was won in May 2003, on May 12th 2004 the jackpot of $175,404 was paid, and in May 2005 a jackpot of $115,968 was won on the slot!
