Slot of the Week

Megacity Football Fever – BF Games

BF Games tapped into the international football action taking place across the next month by launching its latest slot release, Megacity Football Fever, which claimed SlotBeatsSlot of the Week award with instant prizes and progressive free spins. 

With players hoping to land as many instant win-paying football symbols as possible, the slot presents a 5×3 reel slot with 50-paylines and a maximum win of up to x2,000 the player’s stake. The game has high volatility with an RTP of 96.12 per cent. 

Low value symbols are represented by playing card royals, with Jacks, Queens, Kings and Aces, while whistles, football boots and goalkeeper gloves depict the medium value symbols.

High value symbols come in the form of gold lucky sevens. If the right number of winning combinations land on a single spin, these symbols can offer between x0.6 and x20 the player’s stake. 

Special Football symbols can also drop into play, awarding instant prizes when three or more appear on the same spin. Football payout prizes work as follows: 

  • Landing three on the same spin awards x1 
  • Landing four on the same spin awards x2
  • Landing five on the same spin awards x5
  • Landing six on the same spin awards x10
  • Landing seven on the same spin awards x25
  • Landing eight on the same spin awards x50
  • Landing nine on the same spin awards x100
  • Landing 10 on the same spin awards x200
  • Landing 11 on the same spin awards x500
  • Landing 12, 13, 14 or 15 on the same spin awards x2,000

Free spins text scatters are available on reels one, three and five, triggering an initial three spins when three scatters land on the same turn.

In these free spins, the aim is to land five football symbols on the reels in order to upgrade the feature to its next level. 

At the next level, the board will increase to 5×4 size while players need to land 10 football symbols to activate the next level, which has a 5×5 size board. 

At this level, players need 15 symbols to get to the next 5×6-sized level, then needing 20 to get to the level after that with a board size of 5×7. 

Following that, 25 and 30 symbols are needed to unlock the 5×8 and 5×9 levels, before needing 35 symbols in the final level to unlock the grand football prize of x2,000 the player’s bet on a 5×10 board. 

When players fail to land the number of football symbols needed to reach the next level, they will return to the base game while gaining the prize value represented by the level they made it to. 

Lastly, wild text symbols can appear in both the base and bonus game modes, substituting for all symbols other than free spins scatters and football symbols. 

Featured slots

Stampede Bonanza – Booming Games

Buffalos raced across the reel set in the latest slot from Booming Games, transporting players to North American deserts for a 6×5 reel slot with scatter-combinations of eight or more identical symbols needed to form wins. 

Cascading wins also occur, causing winning symbols to disappear after providing their payout, making way for new symbols to drop in from above the reels. 

Moritz Blume, Director of Product at Booming Games, commented: “Our team has produced yet another great slot that will really capture the imagination of players as they navigate their way through a rugged landscape which is filled with cascading reels, free spins, random wilds and random multipliers. 

“We are always working hard to keep our content fresh, and this is another great example of a game that has all the hallmarks of a Booming Games slot, offering players a fully immersive gameplay experience.”

In the base game, a meter sits above the reel set that progresses when wins are formed with a certain number of symbols on the same spin. 

Landing wins with 18 symbols across different win combinations on the same spin will cause one random wild symbol to be placed on the reels, substituting for all symbols other than the scatter. 

Moreover, landing wins with 40 symbols unlocks a second random wild, while wins with 60 and 90 symbols unlock a third and fourth random wild, respectively. 

Bonus landscape scatters can also appear, triggering 10 free spins when four or more appear on the same spin. Additionally, landing four, five or six scatters on the same spin will award x2, x5 or x20 the player’s wager, respectively. 

In the free spins game mode, landing several win combinations with a certain number of symbols on the same spin can award a random multiplier for said spin. 

These potential multipliers are displayed above the free spins grid and range from x2 to x100. 

Cash Strike Hotstepper – Blueprint Gaming

Blueprint Gaming extended its Cash Strike series with a new coin-shifting feature to increase the win potential, showcasing a 3×3 reel, high-volatility slot with five-paylines and a maximum win of up to x5,000 the player’s wager. 

Jo Purvis, Director of Marketing, PR and Events at Blueprint Gaming, said: “We’re delighted to launch the latest title in our ever-popular Cash Strike series, where a classic slot experience is blended meticulously with innovative fresh mechanics.

“Cash Strike Hotstepper’s cash collect and hotstepper features lead the way, maximising player’s chances of securing major wins and gaining access to the lavish bonus game. Our latest summer release is coming in hot!”

Using a fruit machine theme, low value symbols in the game are represented by fruits such as lemons, plums, cherries, oranges, grapes and watermelons. Meanwhile, bells, gold stars and lucky sevens depict the high value symbols. 

Gold coin symbols can appear on the first and third reel, displaying monetary prizes that can be claimed when a special Cash Strike coin lands in the middle reel. These coins can also present jackpot prizes of mini (x25), minor (x50), major (x150) or grand (x1,000). 

Cash Strike coins can only appear in the middle reel, collecting the values of all gold coins that appear on the same spin.

For the hotstepper feature, when Cash Strike coins land on the first or second row on the middle reel, they will stay sticky on the reels for the subsequent two or one spins, moving down one position on the reel per spin. 

If the Cash Strike coin lands on the same spin that gold coins appear in reels one and three, the Cash Strike bonus game will be activated. This awards three spins where the Cash Strike stays sticky on the reels. 

When additional gold coins land on the reels in this feature, not only will they have their prizes collected by the Cash Strike coin, but they will reset the number of spins to three. 

Moreover, every gold coin or Cash Strike symbol that appears will be added to a cash blast meter above the reels.

Once several coins have been collected, the cash blast feature can randomly be triggered to add enough gold coins and collect symbols to the reels to trigger the Cash Strike bonus game.
