Sidewinder Your Way To Fortunes!
The slot has 5 reels and the ways to win can be stretched from the default 243 to a sky-high 1,125. 10p and ₤100 make up the lowest and highest bet amounts per spin respectively.
Gameplay here takes place on a 3x5x5x5x3 reel set and the design is as retro as it gets. The featured icons on the reels comprise playing card values, as well as four-leaf clovers, bars, golden bells, horseshoes and lucky red 7s. The latter icon is the most valuable there is, with players being due for 8x the stake when they land five of it across a payline.
A trio of wild icons is featured here. These are the regular, top and bottom wild. These wild icons replace all others save for the scatter when helping wins along. The regular wild icon only shows up on horizontal reels, the bottom wild is on the fourth reel, while the top wild is on the second reel.
Sidewinder Feature - This is brought into play when the top wild activates the top horizontal reel. It can also be activated when the bottom wild icon triggers the horizontal reel at the bottom. The ways to win feature in the Sidewinder slot gets boosted to 576 when a solitary horizontal reel is activated and climbs to 1,125 when two horizontal reels are activated.
Free Spins - To trigger the free spins mode in this online slot, the players must land 3, 4 or 5 of the Sidewinder scatter icons on both the second and fourth reels, as well as the horizontal reels. From 6 to 10 spins are then awarded. During these spins, the wild icon can land and potentially turn into an expanding wild and more free spins can be triggered by landing extra scatter icons.
The slot has all the elements needed for great gameplay, a lovely retro look and makes possible wins of 2,720x the stake on each spin when a trio of reels are fully wild. Overall, it does its job quite well, if unspectacular and is well worth taking a look at.
