There are a few slot machines that use a game show as its theme and here’s another one but a little bit difficult. Most game shows seem to be presented by stand-up comedians who could be used a lot better (who said Bradley Walsh?) but in ‘The Winning Pick’ a load of puppets have taken over the show. A strange theme but this is a game that can win you lots of real cash so it’s well worth giving a try.
It’s not quite ‘Pointless’ or ‘The Chase’ but the look of the puppets is one of the best things about this slot. The game is set in the studio where the latest episode of the show is being filmed and the main board makes up the reels. We also get to see some rather large light bulbs surrounding the reel and the title of the game.
This slot has a total of 25 pay-lines on its five reels. That’s not a fixed amount as is the case with lots of real money online slots so you will need to decide how many to activate. Setting how many to play and your stake is achieved using the control buttons underneath the reels. The minimum cost of playing is 0.25 and the max bet 250. Ensure you set a stake that isn’t going to cause you any problems if you were to lose it.
The symbols include the announcer, the host, and the show girl as well as the winning prize, the person who prompts the audience to applaud like crazy (you don’t think they really find these programmes funny do you?), a prize button, cash, and a game-show envelope. No Ten to Ace here, instead we get the hearts, spades clubs and diamonds as the lower paying symbols in this game. The wild symbol in this game is the Winning Pick logo and you will want to see as much of it on the reels as possible. That’s because of its ability to substitute for other symbols and complete lots of winning combinations. It’s not able to substitute for the scatter symbol.
When three of the scatters appear on the first, third and fifth reels, this takes you to a mini-game where you go from reel to reel picking curtains (as you do) to reveal a prize. This will continue until you reveal ‘No Prize.’ It’s possible therefore to get a good few wins if your luck is in. There’s another bonus game triggered if you are able to get three of the bonus symbols on the second, third and fourth reels. Again, all you need to be doing is simply choose one of the buttons to reveal an instant cash win.
There’s no free spins round in ‘The Winning Pick video slot’ but as well as those two side games, there’s also a gamble feature. This will appear when you get a win in the base game and gives you the chance to increase the size of the win you have just had. If you wish, just take that win and get ready for the next spin. However, if you are in a gambling mood, go for the gamble feature. You need to correctly guess the colour of the next playing card and if you do so, then you’ve doubled your win. There’s the chance to do that four more times if you are brave enough. This isn’t an easy task though and always remember the fact that if you make one wrong guess, you lose your win.
This isn’t too complex a game but it’s still important to check out the rules to the game. It’s an easy task because all you have to do is have some free The Winning Pick slot machine games. That will show you how everything works. Also have a look through the paytable to find out the rules to the game and details such as how much the winning combinations pay out. You’ll also see that it’s possible using those control buttons to set some automated spins of the reels if the player needs some time away from the screen of either your PC or tablet and other mobile devices.
There are other online slot games out there that also have similar gameplay to ‘The Winning Pick’ so you might want to test those out too. For example, there’s ‘The King’s Crown’ which is also a Novomatic slot. It also has 25 pay-lines, offers its players a gamble feature and has wild and scatter symbols. Unlike this slot, it has a free spins round. Also try playing another Novomatic release ‘Sevens Gold Casino’ which also has 25 pay-lines and an almost identical RTP to this slot but only has one triggered bonus feature.
A colourful slot that can give its players a fair bit of fun. The mini-games aren’t too hard to trigger which is a bonus and can produce some good wins. The theme is a bit weird to be fair but It’s an enjoyable one and well adhered to. Be careful with the gamble feature though and don’t give away good wins.
