Free Eagle Bucks Slot
Eagle Bucks is a slot set on the North American plain, where the eagle soars above the dusty and rocky terrain, surveying the wildlife below.
On the reels of this Ainsworth designed slot you’ll find deer, buffalo and a wolf as well as a nest full of eagle eggs, while the eagle takes center stage as the wild of the slot.
When landing the feature, you’ll find these eagle wilds everywhere and you might be lucky enough to land the randomly awarded extra wild reel too.
How to Win on Eagle Bucks
There are three main ways to win on this slot. First the regular method of lining up the symbols from the left, second through the ‘scatters’ and finally through the potentially very profitable free spins bonus round.
The symbol you’ll want to look out for is the eagle itself as this is both the highest paying on the reels and the wild. As the highest paying, you’ll pocket a cool 1,000 coins if you can land 5 in a row, while as the wild it will substitute for any other symbol apart from the scatter. The rock formation with the sun shining in the background pays 300 coins for the maximum five, while the wolf pays 200. The buffalo, the deer and the eggs are each worth 150 coins and they are joined on the reels by the playing card characters from 9 to Ace.
Every time you win you have the option of taking a gamble, this button found just above the spin button. If choosing to gamble an overlay will appear showing a face down playing card. You have the option of predicting the color of the card to double your money, or choosing the suit of the card to multiply your win amount by four.
The final symbol on the reels is the logo. This acts as a scatter and awards an immediate payout of 2x, 10x or 100x your total stake when landing 3, 4 or 5 respective symbols anywhere on the reels. However, more importantly perhaps, you’ll also gain entry into the free spins round. At this point you’ll want to have luck on your side as you’ll either gain 10 free spins; or 10 free spins with the fifth reel holding the eagle wild, the second feature giving you the greater chance of winning. Whichever feature you are given, whenever an eagle wild lands anywhere on reels 2, 3 or 4, this wild will now expand to cover the entire reel, making for a potentially very profitable feature.
How the Eagle Bucks Slot Works
This Ainsworth slot game has 5 reels each with 3 rows of symbols. In general, the slots in the Ainsworth range usually have a large number of pay lines, but this slot bucks the trend by offering just 20, although the motto ‘less is more’ can certainly apply here. You’ll also have the option of playing just 10 or even a single line if you do want to play fewer. You’ll also choose your stake per line, which ranges from just 1c all the way through to $7.
Attached to the spin button you’ll find an auto play option, which you can set to 5, 10, 15, 20 or 25 spins. Having set this, simply hit spin and enjoy the action unfold. The info button showing a question mark brings up a menu showing the game rules, the feature, the pay table, the pay lines, the gamble option and the game instructions, while a settings button allows playing around with the sound and the graphics.
The slot is a nice looking, especially the backdrop which features tall fir trees set against the mountains and the setting sun, really giving the feel of the North American plain. The reels themselves are more prominent than at other similar slots – although graphically the symbols are a little basic in comparison to some of the slots you’ll play today, a lack of animation perhaps the most telling aspect of the slot. The sound is interesting to say the least – the standard sounds of the slot being joined by a slightly out of place banjo sound when a win with the wild comes your way.
Eagle Bucks isn’t the most complicated slot you’ll ever come across and it doesn’t feature the best visuals either, but the game is enjoyable nonetheless. Yes, the base game is much like any other, but the feature with the expanding wilds does raise the bar, made even better if you are lucky enough to land the extra wild reel.
