Sunday Afternoon Classics Slot from Amaya
This slot is a nod to those classic movies that are shown on TV on a Sunday afternoon, when all you want to do is have a relaxing time during the easiest day of the week. This movie themed slot features two main characters – a member of the Cavalry and his sweetheart, both appearing in their own symbols and together in an embrace. Fans of classic films such as ‘Gone with the Wind’ will certainly connect with this slot, although the central love affair of this slot seems a much smoother ride. The highlight of this game is the free spins bonus round, where a nice multiplier awaits, while four separate progressive Jackpots can head your way when playing.
How to Win on Sunday Afternoon Classics
Above the reels you’ll find the four ‘Movie Mayhem’ jackpot amounts. Entry to the Jackpot round is randomly awarded, so you could find yourself entering after any winning or losing spin, although the higher your stake, the more chance you’ll have of winning. The ‘Move Mayhem Jackpot’ is a shared Jackpot pool across several different slots, which ensures the Jackpot amount rises quicker than you would find if it was available at just this slot. Having entered the Jackpot round you’ll find a mini game where you’ll pick items in the hope of revealing movie tickets. The more tickets you uncover, the bigger Jackpot amount you’ll win.
The other highlight of the slot is the free spins bonus round. This is activated by landing the scatter symbol, represented by the embracing couple, three or more times across any of the reels. You’ll win 10 free spins in total with the added bonus that any wins throughout the feature will be the subject of a 3x multiplier. Even better news is the fact that the free spins feature can be retriggered. This scatter symbol also offers an immediate payout when appearing twice or more, with a top payout of 100x your total stake when appearing the maximum five times.
Standard wins come your way when you can land three or more consecutive symbols from left to right on a win line. The female lead character, decked in a purple dress, is the highest paying at the slot, worth a very impressive 6,000 coins for the maximum five in a row. This is also the wild symbol, meaning it will substitute for every other symbol at the game (apart from the scatter) ensuring many additional wins.
The Cavalry man is next on the pay table, worth 1,000 coins; their white house pays 500 coins, while pendants and a rose both pay 200 coins. The standard symbols are completed by the playing cards 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
Design and Setup
The backdrop to the reels shows a rolling meadow on a summer’s day. To the right of the scene you can see the white house again and occasionally you’ll see a flock of birds fly past the house while red roses are found in the foreground. The character symbols on the reels are well designed, the standout symbol being the cavalryman on his horse, although overall the slot does have something of a basic feel. This might be due to the predominant playing card symbols which are designed in pastel colors, which despite the historical style font, don’t particularly stand out. The accompanying sound does give a nice nod to the soundtracks you might find during a Sunday afternoon film, while the reels come to a stop to the sound of a galloping of a horse, which is a nice touch.
This Amaya designed slot, like the majority of online games, has 5 reels. There are a maximum of 25 win lines, this number set as the default, although you can choose to play any number between 1 and 25. Changing the number has a nifty sound effect too! The bet size for each of these win lines ranges from just 1c all the way through to $20. The auto play feature is a good one as you can set the number manually using the up and down buttons, while also use the ‘advanced’ feature where you can set added rules for the auto play.
Amaya has to be applauded for designing a slot with an original theme here, but unlike the movies, this won’t be classified as a classic. Graphically the game is a little weak and the gameplay doesn’t particularly excite, the base game with a free spins bonus round format one that is found at many slots. However, the added Jackpot feature is a nice touch and fans of those epic movies might find themselves playing this slot more than once.
