How to Play Jazz Time
Start by adding credits to the machine from your balance. Each credit is $1. To add them, just click on the chip denominations - $1, $5, $25 and $100 chips. You can add credits up to the full balance of your account.
Next, determine how many lines you want to play, from 1-9, and how many credits, from 1-5. You can choose by either hitting the "Bet One" button up to 5 times, or hitting the "Bet Max" button. If you choose "Bet Max" you'll bet 5 credits at 9 lines, and the machine will automatically spin.
Now that you've placed a wager and chosen the lines you want, just hit "Spin" to get that band to hit it.
How to Win

The story behind the game
You ever wonder what this whole jazz thing is really all about? Well, Louie Armstrong said it best: "If you gotta ask, you'll never know."
Well, Louie was a heck of a trumpet player, but that answer isn't too helpful. So for those who gotta ask, here's a very brief description of jazz: It's a form of music that evolved from a fusion of traditional European and African rhythmic styles. It is often considered a descendant of Ragtime, and many say it gave rise to Swing, funk and, ultimately Rock. It can be said to have started in New Orleans around the beginning of the 20th Century, but has morphed and evolved over the decades so that it now encompasses dozens of related music genres.
You might ask, what does all that have to do with making money playing slots? Well, just play Jazz Time and you'll quickly see how many different ways you can improvise your way into a whole lot of cash.
Pay Line: A line that shows where symbols have to land after the reels spin, to award prizes.
Bonus Game: At the conclusion of a spin you may hit the right combination of symbols to trigger a bonus game. This bonus game won't cost you, but you can win lots of cash.
