There’s been some great game shows on television over the year but ‘Play Your Cards Right‘ has always been one of my favourites. In the States it was known as ‘Card Sharks’ but in the UK it was a massive hit for Sir Bruce Forsyth running on and off from 1980 to 2003. Now comes the video slots version of the game from Fremantle Media and just like the TV show it’s great fun to play and profitable too. Sadly there’s no sign of Brucie anywhere in this game and the music used isn’t the exact theme played in the TV game. What we do get is a five reel and 15 payline video slots game set within a television studio.
The minimum stake in the game is £0.05 and the maximum £150. That’s a high figure to gamble on one spin so just go for a stake that you can afford and will give you a good chance of getting some winning combinations. To increase your chances of winning take a good look through the paytable. That way you’ll know all the rules and how to win especially in the bonus rounds. Have a few free games too and just get to know what it’s like playing the game before putting your online balance at risk. For once I’m not going to moan about the fact there are lots of playing cards used as symbols. The idea of ‘Play Your Cards Right’ was guessing whether the next card turned over is higher or lower than the previous one, so this is a game primarily about cards. Not entirely though because the television show did include qualifying questions where you had to answer silly survey questions like How many people said they like their mother-in-law. That’s not included here though which is a shame.Perhaps it would have been good to see Brucie or at least a Brucie look-a-like or a couple of Dolly Dealers too.
The symbols used are Jack, Queen, King, Diamonds, Hearts, Spades, Clubs, the Joker (which is the wild symbol), a Grand Final scatter symbol and a Double Chance bonus symbol. Also look out for the red and blue cash value icons that add to the prize available in the Double Chance bonus. Playing the game is straightforward enough with the control buttons all down the bottom of the screen. There’s an auto spin feature where you can set up to 50 spins while you either sit back and watch the wins come in or pop off for a cup of coffee.
There are two bonus rounds in this game. Firstly there’s the Grand Final Bonus and to trigger this you need three of more of those Grand Final scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels. The round itself is similar to the TV show as you attempt to work your way across the board making a decision over whether the next card is going to be higher or lower. If you get to the end of the row then there’s some excellent multipliers waiting for you with 2x, 5x and 10x up for grabs. depending on how far you can go without making an incorrect decision. The other bonus round is the Double Chance Bonus. Three or more of the Double Chance icons get you into this round. This is the chance to get your hands on the value of the red and blue cash card symbols that have been building up during regular game play. There’s two rows of cards for you to play and the highest value pot determines which is the first you play. Again it’s the higher or lower game and if you can get to the end you win the value of the cash pot available. Then it’s onto the other line to see if you can add even more winnings to your account balance. You can choose to freeze if you’re stuck with a middle card for example. If you use this and then lose before getting to the end of the row then you drop to the lower value pot.
You’ll certainly have some fun playing this game. The Bonus rounds in particular are enjoyable and you can get some good wins. It’s a shame there’s no sign of Brucie and the Bonus Rounds have a female hostess. Aside from that though this is another enjoyable game from Fremantle Media.
