The centerpiece of any slot game is the bonus round. It is basically why people play slots. Only a handful of slot games have actually become successful without having a meaningful bonus round and Starburst is probably the one that would spring to most players’ minds. Bonus rounds allow punters to have some spins on the house and if the free rounds contain extra multipliers, then you can quickly recover any losses and boost your casino balance. If you are really lucky you could even turn a profit.
The best bonus games at Mr Luck are those that offer free spins that can be retriggered, this means that the number of free spins you win is not necessarily the amount you will play through. Slots’ playing is all about the thrill of landing the bonus over and over again and this is why a special effort is made when creating bonus rounds. Sometimes bonus can be complicated, but most of the time keeping things simple proves to be most effective.
Most slots players would have encountered a book-based slot during their game play. It is a popular theme that started off with slots featuring an Ancient Egyptian theme but now book-based slots are everywhere. There is Book Of Oz, Book Of Ra, Book Of Dead, Book Of Christmas, Book Of Halloween and many more.
Surprisingly they are all similar and very few contain any random special features in the base game. But it is the bonus rounds that make them tick and you need 3 or more books to trigger the bonus of 10 free spins. Before the spins start, the game chooses one of the symbols to act as the expanding symbol on the reels. Usually if the highest paying symbol is picked, then it is harder for this to land because there are fewer of the premium symbols in the games. However, if you are lucky enough to get that rare spin that fills all the reels with the premium symbol, then you can win yourself 5000x your bet. The beauty of this bonus rounds is that they can be retriggered numerous times. The actual books in these games also act as wild symbols.
Wilds are everywhere in slot games and their purpose is to mimic other symbols they land next to and this helps punters win more often. Wilds have got more inventive thanks to improved technology and they now serve many more functions. Wilds can expand, roam or stick and these functions are not necessarily exclusive to the bonus round.
Age Of The Gods: God Of Storms from Playtech, is a good example of a slot that uses wilds. The wild here is the ship and this produces a wild wind respin. If the ship lands on the last reel, then it effectively acts as a sticky wild that roams the reels until it reaches the first reel and vanishes. Every respin is also met with a growing multiplier as well.
