Lost Mine[7] (ロストマイン)
An RPG-style game, where the player and a group of enemies each have a 3xY bingo card. The horizontal line of squares (Y) can change throughout the battle, and the player influences this change by placing an area expansion lottery bet. The player wins if the values in their card are higher than the enemies' card, opening up the next stage. Each stage results in increasing payout from the treasure chest when cleared. There are also bonus stages.

Amazing Bingo

Amazing Bingo is a game of chance that can be played simultaneously with any of the previous 3 games. It can only be played after collecting the 5 JP steps B, I, N, G and O throughout the game. It takes place on a 5x5 bingo card, and when the player activates all 25 cards, they will be awarded with a "Perfect Achievement" (パーフェクト達成) and unlock Jackpot Challenge. If the player hits even one number with a ball, the game continues, perfect score or not.

In Jackpot Challenge, the jackpot mechanism at the top of the cabinet commences. The LED lights begin to rotate once a ball goes into the mechanism. The rotation will eventually stop and either light up in yellow or rainbow colours. If it is rainbow, the player wins the jackpot. If yellow, the lottery continues with the "Jackpot Square" (JACKPOTマス) and "Challenge End Square" (チャレンジ終了マス) areas raised by one. Thus, the player can win an even bigger jackpot if it stops at rainbow the following go-around.
