The story behind the game
According to the World Bunco Association (and yes there is a World Bunco Association) the game began in England and was later imported to the American West as a gambling game. During Prohibition, Bunco games were a big target for law enforcement. In fact, there were dedicated "Bunco-Squads" dedicated to busting the game.
These days Bunco (or Bunko) is enjoying a new wave of popularity. It's played everywhere, but especially in the suburbs, where people host Bunko parties, complete with snacks, refreshments and a whole lot of dice rolling. In recent times, very few if any Bunko parties have incurred the wrath of law-enforcement. But just to be on the safe side, you're probably safest just playing this slot machine version.
Scatter Symbol: Symbols that win you cash or sometimes free games no matter where they land.
Random Progressive Jackpot: A jackpot that is both awarded randomly, rather than when you get a specific symbol or symbols when you spin, and that increases in value until it's won.
Autoplay: Pre-setting your slot machine with a set number of automatic spins. This way you don't have to hit the "Spin" button each time you want to play.
Feature/Bonus game: This means a number of spins you get to play for free, but where you still get to keep anything you win.
