As the years have progressed, roller coasters have become faster and faster and more unique as they add multiple loop-the-loops . I’ve got a roller coaster around the corner from where I live, no surprise that I haven’t been on It yet, all a bit scary. Not so this great slot game though which gives players lots of chances to get big wins.
The Roller Coaster video slot has control buttons aplenty underneath the reels. That gives it the look of the many slot games you can play in the amusement arcades. There’s just the nine pay-lines to be found on the five reels and three rows of colourful symbols. There are 11 control buttons underneath the reels and a few have more than one use.
The nine pay-lines here aren’t fixed so you can use the control buttons to set either one, three, five, seven or nine pay-lines when playing on your tablet or PC, Check your budget before deciding how many to activate on each spin of the reels. The minimum cost of playing with all the nine pay-lines is 0.09 and the most you can wager is 450 so be careful when playing with real cash.
The symbols in this fairground themed slot will get you in the mood to pop down your local funfair. There’s plenty of food of course with a bag of popcorn, a fizzy drink, a lollipop, and an ice-cream cone. Have that lot and then go on the roller coaster and we all know what’s going to happen next.
We also get a dodgem car, a horse from the Carousel and a pig on a roller coaster, why it’s a pig is beyond me. I’m not going on them if there are pigs around. All the symbols are theme-related which is excellent to see. There’s also a clown and another high-flying ride (not going on that either). Wins in this game are paid in both directions so that’s handy. It’s the roller coaster car that is the wild and only appears on the first and fifth reels. It can substitute for all the symbols apart from the clown and the Ferris wheel.
To get some free spins you need to get three or more of the clown scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. Even if activating just one pay-line you can get into the bonus round if those scatters turn up on the first, third and fifth reels. There’s not many free spins up for offer in the bonus round, just two or five. How many you get depends on the result of the Ferris Wheel spin. Once you’re in the free spins round, the symbols that encircle the centre symbol start going around and round as if on one of those rides I’m not going on. This goes on until a winning combination can be awarded. It is possible to re-trigger the free spins if those scatters arrive again.
This is another of the slots with software by Novomatic include a gamble feature. When a win comes along in the base game, there’s a chance to at least double it. It’s the usual task of having to correctly guess the colour of the next card but at least we get a picture of the roller coaster in the background. If your choice is correct then he win is doubled and there are four more opportunities ti further increase your win. However, one wrong choice costs you your win so be careful and don’t overdo this feature and keep your wins safe.
Make sure you do a bit of research before playing this game. Play the free Roller Coaster slot to see all that happens when the reels start spinning without having to spend any real cash. A good read of the paytable is also advisable as that is packed with information about the rules of this video slot. It also tells you about how much each winning combination pays out. For example, five dodgems pay out a 750x multiplier.
There are a fair few other slot games out there that have similar gameplay. You can try out the Microgaming slot ‘Agent Jane Blonde.’ That also has nine pay-lines and offers its players the chance to win free spins Also give a go to the Novomatic slot game ‘Marco Polo.’ Another nine-pay-line slot that also has a gamble feature to try and boost wins with, a free spins round and a similar RTP.
As you might have worked out I’m not too keen on roller coasters, but I love this Novomatic slot game. It’s a bit basic in terms of looks but I like how it resembles an actual slot machine. The big wins are in the free spins round particularly If it can be re-triggered. Be careful with the gamble feature though.
