The Big Money Show has a 1960's TV Game Show theme with elements and sounds nostalgic of the era and theme. The Big Money Show is a 2 coin multiplier with a third coin Bonus feature. The 1st coin buys into the standard reel spinner and the 2nd coin multiplies all standard pays. The 3rd coin activates the Big Money Board bonus round. The Big X Multiplier Wild is located on the 2nd reel only. On the top screen is a vertical 'Bonus line', with 5 different multipliers : 2X, 3X, 4X, 5X, and 10X. When the Big X Multiplier Wild centers on the payline with a winning combination, the Big X Multiplier bonus is activated. The Big X section of the COLOR DOTMATION screen will bounce up and down from multiplier to multiplier, slowly stopping on one. The player is awarded the winning combination times the bonus multiplier amount.

The Big Money Board is a 4 x 4 grid consisting of a COLOR DOTMATION screen. The Big Money Board Bonus feature is activated when the 'Big Money' symbol centers on the 2nd reel. Each horizontal row and vertical column of the Matrix is marked by either a 7, a 3 bar, a 2 bar, or a 1 bar. The player is then prompted to press the 'Spin' button, causing the 1st and 3rd symbols to re-spin. Both of the reels will spin and the first reel will stop. If the reel stops on a blank, the 1st reel will continue spinning. If the reel stops on a symbol, the reel will hold its’ position and the 3rd reel will stop, following the same process. The symbol centered on the 1st reel activates the corresponding symbol located to the left of the Money Board and highlights that horizontal row. The symbol centered on the 3rd reel activates the corresponding symbol located on top of the Money Board and highlights that column vertically. The player is awarded the credit amount that is highlighted where both the vertical and horizontal highlights intersect. The section of the grid that was awarded to the player then flips to reveal another higher value on top of a bomb symbol. These values are 2 times their original value. The player continues to spin and collect credits until one of the spaces with a bomb symbol is activated. This ends the round and all credits awarded to the player during the bonus round are collected.
