Tropics

Building slowly on Cabana, this game adds select-a-feature. The player can choose the feature they want to enable from the following choices:
  • spot number
  • extra balls
  • advance score
  • supercards
  • corners scoring
Advance score is interesting, and something Bally never directly gave control of to the player.

one-card games

The game has one main card, usually a 5x5 grid of numbers.

Usually, at least three numbers next to each other on either a horizontal, vertical, or the main 5 number diagonals are required to win.

There were, however, a few variations that occured over the years. The dimensions of the card, 2-in-line winners, and winning on the other diagonal combinations were all features that were used.

Another common feature was corners scoring.
