Lucky Coins can be described as a combination between Pinball and Pachinko. You drop a coin at the top and watch it fall until it hits a bumper that will bounce it in another direction. Sometimes the coin is sucked into a hole from which you can then shoot it out at any angle. Bonus pickups are scattered all around the stage, and the goal is to simply collect as many pickups as possible before you fall out of the playfield at the bottom of the stage. There are three stages to play, and afterward each stage's score is accumulated to form your final score.
