Microgaming is here with yet another slot game titled Side Winder. This fantastic slot comes with 5 reels and winning ways starting from 243 all the way to a whopping 1,125.
It comes with a retro-style theme, but expect a modern touch to the gameplay, especially the reels that come in 3x5x5x5x3 style, and symbols.
Know the Side Winder Symbols
Clubs, spades, stars, hearts and diamonds are what you expect for the low-value symbols. On the other hand, horseshoes, lucky 7s in red, golden bells and 4-leaf covers play as the premium symbols.
The most rewarding symbol is the lucky 7s in red which will award you up to 8 times multiplier to your bet should you land 5 in a line.
This joins the list of slots that come with 3 wilds. You’ll have the top, bottom wild and the regular wild. They will have the same responsibilities including replacing other game symbols apart from the scatter represented by the Side Winder logo.
The regular wild will only appear on the horizontal reels whereas the bottom wild shows on reel 4 not forgetting the top wild that appears on reel 2.
Side Winder Feature
This feature is activated courtesy of top wild that could activate both horizontal reels or one of them and the bottom wild that activates the bottom horizontal reel.
The ways to win will then go up to 576 with a single reel alive horizontally. If both are active, then the winning ways reach up to 1,125.
This feature will become available once you get at least 3 scatter symbols on reel second and the fourth and the horizontal reels. In return, you will receive either 6 or 10 spins for free.
In this feature, keep your eyes open for the Side Winder scatters and the wilds that could make an appearance on both horizontal reels. Now, should the wild appear on both reels and in the same position, then they will expand and you’ll also be rewarded with a free spin for each scatter that comes into view.
To Sum Up
It is quite a traditional slot game in terms of appearance, but the features promise to provide lots of action. On that note, expect to walk away with up to 2,720 times your bet on each free spin if you are lucky enough.
