As they receive the corresponding jackpot, another award of the same value is split equally among the other players at the bank playing maximum bet. Players will want to share this gaming experience. Randomly, a traditional “7” symbol appears and moves across players’ top-boxes. When it stops, an animation celebration occurs and awards extra credits, creating shared excitement. While any player can trigger the community play bonus, max bets increase the possibility and the game’s coin-in.
