Progressive Jackpot: No
A hit in land-based casinos, this 5-reel, 9-payline slot from Novomatic is now available to online players who are looking for a classic game with simple gameplay and design. The simplicity of gameplay does not keep you from getting numerous opportunities to win huge payouts, and that is what makes the game highly attractive. The game also has a quick pace, which makes it all the more exciting. This can be the perfect choice for those who want a fun, relaxing time at the reels.
Gameplay begins with setting your bets. You may start by clicking on any of the Lines buttons to set the number of lines you want to play. You may then click on the Bet One tab to set the number of coins you want to wager per line. If you want to wager the highest amount allowed, click on the Max Bet tab to the right of the Bet One tab. To set the reels into motion, click on the Start tab at the rightmost end of the control panel. If you want the reels to spin automatically, click on the Auto Start tab to the left of the Lines buttons.
You will not see any of the familiar playing card symbols in this game, as all base game symbols are traditional slot machine symbols. The game’s low-value symbols are represented by cherries, a lemon, an orange, a slice of watermelon, a golden bell, and a golden star. The four high-value symbols are represented by a red bar, blue double bar, green triple bar, and a jester, which is the only non-traditional symbol and also the highest-paying one.
Other than being the most lucrative symbol, the jester also acts as the game’s Wild symbol, substituting for any of the other base game symbols, with the exception of the golden star symbol. The golden star symbol also acts as the Scatter, which means it is also key to the game’s main bonus round.
The game’s main bonus round is the familiar Free Spins feature. This is activated when you land three Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. You will be rewarded with ten free spins. If you land the Hot Target symbol on the center reel on any of your free spins, your current prize will be doubled. This can lead to a truly significant payout. Unfortunately, there is no way to re-trigger the bonus round within the free spins.
The game also has the familiar Gamble feature. Every time you land a winning combination, you will be given the option of whether to collect your prize or gamble it. If you choose to gamble, you will be taken to a mini-game where you will need to guess the colour of the next playing card to be drawn. If you guess correctly, your prize will be doubled, and the game continues. If you guess wrong, the mini-game ends and you will lose your total prize for that round.
