Little Britain Slots Machine
This Ash Gaming slot is based on a popular TV comedy sketch show from the UK. Little Britain no longer runs, closing in 2007. At its peak, ratings showed 9.5 million viewers. The characters in this show, which was created by comedians Matt Lucas and David Walliams, became household names. These included Marjorie of ‘Fat Fighters’, Daffyd (the only gay in his Welsh village), and the crazy Anne.
While this slot does look a little dated in places, it is very entertaining. There are on reel extra wilds, a free spins round, plus 5 different bonus games via a wheel spin feature. Many of these give you a shot at winning up to 1000x your total bet.
Setup of the Little Britain Slot
The familiar faces of the characters from the show stare back at you from the 5 reel, 3 row, 30 win-line setup. You can choose the number of win-lines, and the amount bet per line. The minimum is just 1c per line with the full quota in play.
Lou and Andy are the best paying characters, their combined symbol is worth 1000 coins for 5 on a line. Vicky Pollard comes next at 500 coins, with Daffyd, Marjorie and bad cross dresser Emily completing the unique symbols. Playing cards, which are made up of colored dots, make up the smaller wins.
There are wilds, with the logo and word wild written on them. These can appear on any line and will substitute for the other characters. 5 wilds on a win-line will get you a 1000-coin prize.
Random Wilds: Anne Bonus
At random intervals while you play, Anne, will appear – along with a voice asking her to put down a Guinea pig. She will shout ‘Eh Eh Eh’ and throw extra wilds onto the reels. With several of these plus wilds from the spin, you will sometimes trigger some bigger line wins.
Little Britain Free Spins Bonus
A special symbol on reels 2, 4 and 5 reads ‘LB free spins’. If you get 3 in the same spin, you will trigger 10 free spins. These include special stacked wilds, which show full-length pictures of the characters. In addition to their wild capabilities, hitting a complete 3-row picture on a reel gets you a quote and a cash prize – which appears on the bottom of the reel like a tab from an old-style cash register.
The Little Britain Character Bonus Rounds
Hitting 3 of the bonus symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 takes you to a screen with a map of Britain. The narrator explains that these days, people often spin a wheel to decide where to go! You then spin an ‘enormous’ wheel, which will stop on one of 5 entertaining bonus games. These are:
Emily Howard’s Lady Things Bonus: A picks game hosted by bad transvestite Emily. You pick from pink boxes on her shelf. You will find lady things (fan, rings and so on) and footballs, tools and men’s things too. You get cash prizes, and can find boxes with more picks.
Marjorie Dawes Fat Fighters Bonus: Here you pick from covered plates, while Marjorie comments, you win cash prizes until the calorie meter hits the top – at which point you are full.
Lou and Andy’s Love It Bonus: Lou is having ‘a bit of a kerfuffle’, and needs to take things from the shelf to keep Andy happy. You keep picking, and picking up cash prizes, until Andy says ‘Don’t Like it’ 3 times.
Vicky pollard’s ASBO Bonus: This game involves trying to find Vicky (a member of Britain’s thriving underclass) something to do with her life. The longer she takes to decide, the more money you will win.
Daffyd’s Big Gay Bonus: This game sees you help Daffyd choose an outfit to attract other gays to his village. You get to shuffle different colored outfits 3 times, and get paid depending on how many complete outfits you make.
All of these are very entertaining games. If you know the characters from the TV series they really do manage to nail the humor of each one.
One extra special feature that is worth checking out is ‘cheat mode’ in the pay table and information section. When you click on this a loading message with a percentage comes up. You’ll then see a certain travel agent appear. If you know the TV show, you’ll be able to guess what she says. If you are not sure, then make sure you check this out!
Should You Try the Little Britain Slot?
This game beat my expectations. While the graphics are a little dated, the entertainment value is still very strong several years after the series finished. If you enjoyed the TV show, then this is a must-play.
