One electronic game that has been consistently rising in popularity is the Top Dollar slot machine. It is one of the most exciting slot machines with a bonus game, featuring a bonus round that lets the player accept or decline several offers to determine their win. The winning symbols in the Top Dollar bonus game range from 5 to 1000 credits and can include 5, 10, 20, 50, 100 or 1,000 credits. There are also “multiplier” machines that offer up to two 2x multipliers. This means that the top prize is generally 4,000 credits (1,000 x 2 x 2), 1,000 credits, $5,000 or $1,000 depending on the machine variety.
Due to their popularity in many casinos across the United States, Top Dollar slot machines are now available in several different denominations ranging from $0.01 to $1,000. Generally, the lower denomination games are available in 5-reel machines, while the higher denomination machines are available in 3-reel.
One of the most exciting features of Top Dollar is of course the bonus game. To get the bonus, the player just needs to get either a Top Dollar symbol on the last payline or between three and five consecutive Top Dollar symbols (depending on the machine). Once this happens, you will get one bonus game which gives you four different offers. After the first offer is presented, you have the option to either take the offer, or decline it for a new offer. This process is then repeated for each of the next offers.
Though the results are still randomized, you do have somewhat of a say in the outcome because you are able to decline/accept offers. This adds a level of excitement not present in many other slot machine games. This is a big reason why the Top Dollar machine has become a staple of most casinos in both Las Vegas and many other parts of the country.
As we briefly touched on above, there are a few different variations of Top Dollar. The first and most popular type is the variation which requires that the player gets a Top Dollar symbol on the last payline, which starts the bonus. This game has a total of 3 reels and generally require that you are betting two credits, so it is important to check this before playing.

The third top dollar variation has 5 reels, and usually requires at least a two credit bet, though this will vary based on the machine and denomination you are playing.
No matter which type of Top Dollar machine you are playing, wins in the bonus games are calculated in either dollar values or in credits. The machine will clearly state this information in the bonus area, and the dollar amounts are usually equal to one another (i.e. the max win on a credit-based machine will be equal to that of a dollar value machine).
