TRIVIA

Sweet Hearts II was released in September 1995.

On the artwork the title reads "Sweet Hearts II", but on the Lucky Devil version in the Electronic Game Information display, it says "Sweethearts II (Lucky Devil)". The 2000 MKV Hyperlink version was also called "Sweethearts II" on the artwork. The 2004 MKVI update reverts back to the original "Sweet Hearts II" in the game information display. Official title mess-ups?

Bet amounts differ between jurisdictions. For example, the 180 credit version has bet buttons marked 1, 2, 5, 10 and 20, whereas the 45 credit version's bet buttons are simply 1 through 5.

The MKV 180 credit Scorchin' Fortune version previously seen at Crown Casino until Dec 2007, had the suit (x4) gamble options.

MKIV and MKV versions were removed from Victorian gaming rooms, including Crown Casino due to new gaming machine laws. As of December 2007, no gaming machine is allowed to have an 'auto-spin' function, where the player can hold the button down, and machines must not accept $100 notes.

UPDATES

The MKIV version, all 'card' symbols had a white background. On the later games all symbols have a blue reel background.

On the MKIV version, the 'Heart' graphic had a black background with a circle around the heart. Later versions had a blue background with small hearts around it.

On the MKV version, the 'Cupid' graphic had 3 small hearts added to the background in a circular pattern. The MKVI versions were modified again with a single large heart in the background.

The MKVI versions introduced the half gamble option, and also 20 lines. A 9 line version is still available though. The 'Flame', 'Drink', 'Roses', 'Cupid' and 'Crown' graphics were updated to the same graphics originally found on "Diamonds & Hearts". The 'Heart' graphic has a different animation, it beats 4 times then stops. The MKV heart just beats in a slow moving pattern. The MKIV heart and diamond simply flash, as symbol animations weren't introduced until the MKV system.
