This medal game condenses the excitement of firing balls, having them fly through the air, and bouncing them off walls into "action ball lottery" gameplay. With balls flying in all directions, this action is fun just to watch. Incorporating multiple types of games, such as destroying blocks and shooting barrages of balls, "Treasure Shoot" is a blast for players of all ages and skill levels.
