NextGen Gaming Free Spin City Video Slot Review

Free Spin City: Demo

Take a trip to the bright lights of Free Spin City and get hold of some free spins, sticky wilds and multiplier prizes in the process. Powered by betdigital and NextGen Gaming, it’s a 5 reel, 20 payline game where you can boost your chances of landing the feature by increasing your stake. That will also add to the goodies on offer when you do eventually trigger the feature. Play from between 20p and £200 per spin.

The design in Free Spin City has a slightly garish feel – set against a night time skyline dominated by shimmering skyscrapers, the reels include A to 10 playing cards, a dollar sign, a jewel-encrusted spade and a pair of red dice. The best of the standard symbols is the pile of gold coins which awards 100, 200 or 400 coins if you land 3, 4 or 5 in combination. There’s also a wild which replaces everything apart from the scatter.

The main attraction is the Free Spins Bonus feature which is triggered by landing 3 or more scatter symbols on the same spin. 3, 4 or 5 scatters awards 8, 15 or 30 free spins. You can also retrigger the feature to give you up to 60 free spins. Once the free spins are complete, you’ll get to spin the bonus wheel which can award even more free spins or other cash and multiplier prizes.

You’ll have more chances to trigger those free spins if you alter your staking. There are 4 options in all.

Reel Game – this is the basic package which you’ll get if you play at minimum stakes. The scatter appears on reels 1, 3 and 5 only.

Mega Spins – this adds an extra scatter to reel 4 and will set you back 50p per spin.

Ultra Spins – opt for the Ultra Spins and it will cost £1 per spin. In return, the scatters can land on all 5 reels. When you do go on to trigger the free spins, all wilds will turn into multiplier wilds and double the payouts in which they appear.

Power Spins – play at more than £2 per spin and the Power Spins come into play. Scatters can land on all 5 reels here. Wilds that land during the feature once again double payouts. They will also remain frozen in place for the remainder of your free spins.

Random upgrades are on offer too. This will take you up to the next level for the spin that follows. Once it’s complete, you’ll return to your usual level.

If you just miss out on triggering the feature by landing 2 scatters you could get awarded a Bonus Try Again feature. The 2 scatters are frozen and the rest of the reels re-spin, giving you a second bit of the free spins cherry. You could also get a Spin It Again feature – this too can hit at random and give you a re-spin.

The last extra on offer is the Playing Card Multiplier feature – this can land on any successful spin. You’ll be shown 3 playing cards. Pick 1 of them. This will give you a multiplier which will be applied to your win from that spin.

With its night time visuals and casino-style symbols, Free Spin City has a bit of a flashy feel. The bonus round has some decent potential, especially if you trigger it while playing with the Power Spins. It’s not a cheap option though so this probably isn’t a video slot to consider if you have a limited bankroll or are just starting out. If you do fancy something a little outlandish that packs a decent payout punch, then a trip to Free Spins City is worth considering. I also recommend you try Valhalla which is another collaboration between NextGen Gaming and betdigital.
