We've all heard CASHOnly's complaints about this game. So I thought I'd try to plot out the the history of this game.

It began pretty much the same as what we have now, it was a 6/54, two plays for a buck. It was also the launch customer for the Beitel Criterion, the gold standard in draw machines. It remained unchanged until about 1999 when it changed to a 6/51, 1 play for $1 game. What made this version special was it's prizes for matching 3+bonus and 4+bonus, which the current and previous versions didn't offer. And then about 2 years later, it changed to it's current version, which is pretty much the original version, except they made it 6/59, and tweaked it so they could offer big jackpots while keeping a majority of the funds raised. In other words, they only pay 40%.

If you can correct me on any of this, tell me about it.
