All That Jazz

Bally Technologies All That Jazz is a five reel, 40 pay line video slot, available in 1c to $5 denominations.  Bally's has taken the use of the Ideck to new levels with this game by offering a bonus round with an interactive piano, used similar to the video games Rock Band or Guitar Hero.

The game is played out on Bally's V32 portrait monitor and is further enhanced by the crystal clear audio for this jazz themed game. The reels feature a unique setup, whereby the 1st, 3rd and 5th have three pay symbols each and the 3rd and 4th have four. This results in regular pay outs, as there are many winning combinations to be had. 

Bonus Rounds:

Grand Piano Bonus: is triggered by bonus symbols on the first, third and fifth reels. Here the Ideck touch screen becomes a set of piano keys you'll need to pay, like "Rock Band" or "Guitar Hero" 
You are first given the choice of varying difficulties, which result in higher credit awards for the higher difficulty.  Songs available to play are ...
Novice - Twinkle Twinkle, Spring, Mary Had a Little Lamb, Green Sleeves and Ode to Joy

Intermediate - Beethoven's Fur Elise, Star Spangled Banner, Drunken Sailor and Entertainer

As the tune plays, dots will flash on the piano keys to indicate which keys you need to press to play the song.  Every time a correct note is hit, a note on the screen turns into a number and floats to a reel set at the top of the screen. When the tune ends, the reels spin to reveal your credit award. 

Progressive  Jackpot: Each of the five progressive jackpot symbols are displayed above one of the reels. Any time you land five trumpets, saxophones, bass fiddles, microphones or All That Jazz symbols, a shower of music notes pour down the reels. If a note lands on one of the five of a kind symbols, you are awarded the progressive jackpot corresponding to that reel. 
You have the possibility to hit multiple progressives in one spin with the top progressive resetting at $100,000.
