Classic slot machines are always a big hit with online slots players and Realistic Games have released plenty of slot machines that fit this genre. Take the Big Wheel slot machine – it’s designed to look like a real slot machine, thanks to the display panel with messages to the top of the reels.
Not only that, there are nudges, super spins, repeat chances and a number of bonus features that offer exciting game play and plenty of chances to win.
Big Wheel slot game combines a slot machine with a funfair, especially with the bonus games that can be found within it. There are plastic ducks – the type you shoot at funfairs in order to win a prize and even theme park rides that can not only make you scream with excitement – but can award some great cash prizes.
Slot Game Stats
There are 3 reels and 1 pay line to this slot game with spins starting from as little as 0.25 and increase to a maximum of 100.00 a go. The machine itself is designed to replicate an arcade machine – one that has buttons on the lower of the machine for you to start the game and set your desired bet.
Either side of the machine are big bright lights flashing, the sort of lights you would get in a funfair – really adds a touch of excitement to the game. The reels are placed to the center of the machine with various buttons next to them allowing you to gamble and nudge amongst other things.
Symbols on the reels are; ducks, oranges, cherries, golden bells and grapes – which isn’t a great deal compared to other online slot machines.
Jackpots on Offer
Spin in three of a kind of the ducks on your pay line and you will be awarded a 30x multiplier – plus a repeat chance to win even more.
Other pay outs on offer are; grapes 20x, golden bells 15x, oranges 10x and cherries 5x.
Basic Slot Features
When you compare Big Wheel slot machine to other Realistic Games’ titles, there are limited features on offer, but you’d expect that with a classic slot machine. To start with you have the nudges; any spin can trigger nudges and the amount you can be awarded is either 1, 2 or 3.
The amount you have been awarded will be flashing to the left of the reels and you simply press the nudge button beneath the reel you wish to nudge. That symbol will drop down and the one above will drop in its place. If you are unsure which reel to nudge, press the start button and it will automatically choose the reel that can provide the best option – you won’t always get a win though.
The Big Wheel symbol that lands on reel 2 is the key to the bonus features – there are 6 fun-filled bonus games to choose from:
- Super jackpot – you will be awarded the jackpot of a 30x multiplier with the 3 duck symbols and a repeat chance at winning it again.
- Rollercoaster – by pressing the start button you will be shown how many steps you have been awarded. These steps will be played out on the reels and when the meter is full of a specific symbol, you will be awarded that prize.
- Round About – the Big Wheel will have a light flashing around the outside. Press to stop that light and wherever it stops will be the amount you’ve won.
- Ring The Bell – The reels nudge automatically until the golden bells make up the pay line. The nudges will keep rolling until the meter is full and award the cash prize or until you hit a stop button.
- Crazy Reels – a random number of spins are awarded and the reels will spin. All of the wins in any position will be credited to your account.
- Duck shoot – the lowest cash meter is lit and the lights will flash to show the next highest award. Stop the lights to win. You have three chances to try and get as much money as possible.
For a basic slot machine, we were shocked at the amount of bonus features on offer. The bonuses are what make this slot game from Realistic Games so exciting and the thought of winning the non-progressive jackpot and then being able to try and win it again is superb – what other online slot machine offers you the chance to walk away with two jackpots in one spin?
Big Wheel slot is a medium to high variance slot machine which takes some time to trigger the bonus.
