Big Money Show is one of the entries in WMS's G+ series.  G+ machines are generally known for their moderate volatility, and free spin based bonus rounds.

Big Money Show's bonus round is triggered by getting three or more scattered bonus symbols during regular play.  The player will receive 12 bonus spins regardless of the number of bonus symbols they get.

On each spin during the bonus rounds, a random multiplier between 2x and 5x will be applied to the results.  Some symbols on the 5th reel have a boomerang symbol on top of them in addition to the regular symbol.  If the boomerang appears anywhere on the 5th reel, then the multiplier will be between 4x and 30x instead. In my experience the multiplier averaged around 7x.

The bonus round may be retriggered during the free spins, resulting in 12 additional free spins.
