Title: GAMING SYSTEM, GAMING DEVICE AND METHOD PROVIDING ONE OR MORE ALTERNATE WAGER PROPOSITIONS
Abstract:
Various embodiments of gaming systems, gaming devices, and methods of the present disclosure provide one or more alternative wagering propositions to a player when the player's credit balance is less than (or, in certain embodiments, less than or equal to) a designated wager amount. If the player accepts one of the alternative wager propositions, the player risks an amount of the player's remaining credit balance for a chance to win an alternative award. If the player wins the alternative award, the gaming system enables the player to play one or more plays of the wagering game at the designated wager amount, if the player does not win the alternative award, the gaming system reduces the player's credit balance by the amount risked.
