Novomatic have enjoyed great success with their series of Random Runner slot games. As is often the case that means the designers decide to bring out some more games which have a slight variation on the theme. That’s the case here with the Random Runner AWP video slot. It’s a game that brings its players some good wins and memories of the days when fruit machines ruled the roost.
The first thing that will strike you when you initially see this online slot is that the fact there are two reels. Both sets of reels have just three reels of classic slots style symbols and when you begin playing there’s just the single pay-line on the bottom set so this really will bring back a few memories for those who have been playing slot games for a fair while.
Don’t worry though, there are some more pay-lines that eventually come into play. The minimum cost of playing ‘Random Runner AWP’ is just 0.20 and the maximum amount you can wager is 2000 coins. Your main aim is to ensure that the amount you wager isn’t an amount you can’t afford to lose. If you are wondering by the way what ‘AWP’ stands for, it’s ‘Amusement With Prizes.
So, just how does this game work? You start off with the base game which is played out on the bottom set of reels. This game certainly has a retro slot feel and that’s illustrated by the symbols and the value of all the winning combinations are shown on a rather cluttered screen. In the backdrop to this slot you can see a casino that is jam packed full of slot machines. As well as reading this review it’s a good idea to do some research by looking through the rules which are in the paytable section of the menu. Also have some free Random Runner AWP slot games to see everything in action.
Once you have set your stake it’s time to start playing the game with the lower set of reels the one to watch. The symbols in this game are watermelons, plums, cherries, grapes, oranges, lemons, and pears as well as a bar, golden bells, and blue star so they are all familiar symbols. The big payouts come from the blue star which pays out 200 coins for three on a pay-line. You can get wins for two of the fruit symbols on the first couple of reels with the bar on the final one which is a bit like a wild symbol but isn’t officially classified as one. There is a scatter symbol though which is the crown and can see you cash-out wins and three anywhere on the reels pays 20 coins.
‘Random Runner AWP’ can be played on your PC with no download needed and boasts a feature that players of a certain age will adore seeing again. It’s the hold feature and allows you to hold up to two of the reels which will hopefully see a winning combination be created on the next spin. When you get a win on the bottom set of reels, this is when the game starts to get very interesting as it’s Supermeter time if you wish. The player is given the choice of either collecting your win or taking a chance on the Supermeter
If you are in a gambling mood and go for the latter option then the top set of reels come into play and they light up. There are additional symbols on this reel with strawberries and the red 7. Another difference is that there are now five pay-lines in play and you can further increase the size of your win from the base game but you do have to pay for those additional pay-lines that are now in play.
If you are entranced by the double set of reels in this slot, then try your luck on ‘Power Joker’ which also has software by Novomatic and features two sets of reels. It also has classic symbols and contains the Supermeter gameplay that you see in this slot, no holds though. Also try your luck on the NetEnt slot ‘Spartacus; Gladiator of Rome’ which also has two sets of reels but in a very different manner from this game. It has a small set and then a colossal set and provides its players with plenty of chances to get wins and has a scatter symbol.
This is another in the successful ‘Random Runner’ series you can play at online casinos. It does take a little bit of getting used to and some research is very important before you play with real money. The gameplay is interesting with the hold button bringing back some good memories and the Supermeter can boost your account balance. If you are looking for a game that’s a bit different, then this is it.
