IGT produce some fantastic slot games with some innovative ideas. Sometimes though they take a bit of a trip back in time for a retro feel. That’s the case in ‘Super Times Pay’ where old favourites such as 7’s and bars make a welcome return but sit alongside new features such as Wild Multipliers and Super Symbols. It all makes for a very enjoyable and profitable experience.
That retro feel begins right from your first glance at the game. This has just the three reels and the same number of rows with five paylines. You can tell it’s not an old game though because the graphics are so much better than the ones I used to play down the arcades in days gone by. The cost of playing the game ranges from £0.25 to £2000 so high rollers will absolutely love this game. Each coin added per spin activates an additional payline. There’s only five but it’s important to activate them all if you fancy winning the top prize in the game.
It’s the multiplier symbols in this game that can bring you some excellent wins. The most important symbols are stacked on the middle reels and cover all three positions. That’s really vital for your account balance as it means their presence can really get you a constant supply of winning combinations.
The best win here is 10,000x your line bet but this is only on the fifth win line. That’s a good way of getting you to activate all the paylines in this game. Just keep an eye on your account balance though and don’t go chasing that big win If you can’t afford to. To get this big win the multipliers have to be 2x on the first and third reels with a 5x on the middle one.
The multiplier symbols are also wild so again that’s really going to help you. That’s because they can substitute for the 7s or bars to get you some wins. They also multiply that win by whatever multiplier amount is written on the symbol.
Three of the red 7s will win you 50x your line bet, it’s 40x for the purple ones and 30x if you can get three of the three bars symbol. Not massive prizes so hope those multipliers come along for you.
It’s really advisable that you take a good look through the paytable and the game rules before starting to put some real cash into the game. Don’t worry all the information is explained really well and not in what feels like a foreign language If only the makers of the last hi-fi system I got had gone down the same route. Often with games that have just the 3×3 design, the paytable is actually on screen but that’s not the case here and you have to click the pays button for the useful three pages of information. A few free games will also add to your knowledge of the game and then let the real battle commence.
To trigger the bonus game in ‘Super Times Pay’ you need to get all three of the symbols that have ‘super’ written on them anywhere on the reels at the same time. This gets you ten free spins to play with. During these free spins the symbols are exactly the same as in base play.
There is a bit of a difference though because any wins that you get are doubled so if the top win comes along during the free spins you’ll be twice as delirious. If those three symbols that triggered the free spins come along again, then that’s more free spins you’ve just won.
I always like to see slot games that have a retro feel to them so ‘Super Times Pay’ had a bit of a head start even before I started playing it. Once I did start spinning the reels I wasn’t disappointed. The multipliers are the key to getting good wins and the bonus game can be profitable with wins doubled and the chance to get more free spins. The soundtrack can be a bit annoying though so it’s good that there’s a mute button here.
