Slots of Money is betdigital/NextGen Gaming’s attempt at trying to breathe new life into the classic fruit machine format. This 5 reel, clusters pays game comes with plenty of extras including pick me bonuses, free spins on a mini reel set, re-spins with sticky symbols and symbol flips. Stakes start at 10p, rising to £5 per spin.
The design in Slots of Money has a shiny, glossy feel. The action takes place on a honeycomb-style reel set, reminiscent of the board in the TV quiz show Blockbusters (1 for the youngsters there!). You’ll see lower value royal symbols alongside bars, casino chips, diamonds and the Slots of Money logo which is done in the style of the famous Las Vegas sign.
Winning combinations are created by landing clusters of 4 or more matching symbols. The Slots of Money logo is the top payer, awarding between 5 and 1,000 times your stake. As we mentioned in the intro, betdigital has packed plenty of mini features into Slots of Money:
Casino Chip Bonus feature – land 2 or more casino chip symbols on an unsuccessful spin and you can trigger this pick me round. Just choose a chip to reveal a multiplier prize.
Mini Slot Bonus feature – any time a Mini Reels symbol lands you’ll trigger this free spins round. These are played out on a new, 1 payline machine. The more Mini Reels on the triggering spin, the more free spins you’ll get. This can be anything from 1 up to 20 free spins. Prizes on offer on the mini reels range up to 100 times your stake.
Cash Connection Bonus feature – this can trigger at random. Every position will offer a pick me symbol. Choose 1 to reveal the special mystery symbol which is then locked in place. You’ll then receive 4 re-spins. Every instance of the special symbol will be locked in place too. A payout is made following each re-spin if a winning cluster is created. We recommend choosing reel 4, row 2 for you first pick!
Flip It Again feature – this too can trigger following an unsuccessful spin. The symbols will flip again to reveal a new combination and hopefully a winner.
Mini Slot Bonus Flip feature – similar to the Flip It Again Bonus feature, this can also hit at random following a losing spin. A random selection of symbols ‘flip’ over to reveal mini reel set symbols to trigger the Mini Slot Bonus feature.
We didn’t have to wait long to land the features as they all hit at regular intervals. Landing a big win from those extras proved far trickier. Expect a steady stream of smaller wins rather than anything too explosive. We’d put the volatility in the low to medium range.
On first view, this looks like an ordinary fruity. A few spins quickly reveals it offers more than that. The range of extras isn’t the most thrilling. They certainly pep up the action though. If you enjoy classic fruit machines with a twist, Slots of Money is one to add to the rotation. Alternatively, NextGen Gaming has many superb games like Renegades and 300 Shields.
