Quick Hit Pro Slots
There are few classic slot games which have had the popular appeal of the Bally ‘Quick Hit’ series. These can be found in live casinos around the world as well as online, and combine classic slot gaming with the potential to quickly hit a huge win via special ‘scatter’ symbols. The ‘Quick Hit Pro’ part of this series is a very polished game. It contains a surprise element to the bonus round as well as the classic game-play which has kept the quick-hit series famous for many years.
You’ll notice that there are 4 rows of symbols on each of the 5 reels, rather than the usual 3. This gives you more opportunities to hit the ‘Quick Hit’ logos, which are totalled wherever they land on the reels to give you those bigger wins. The background of the reels is a vivid blue colour. While the graphics are solid, there is nothing exceptional about them. This is a slot which focuses on that famous Bally game-play, rather than one which tries to impress with flashy graphics and animation sequences. While you play the sounds are mostly mild computer beeps, with a tune which partly reminds me of a Michael Jackson song coming up when you win. The bonus game has a livelier backing track.
Playing Quick Hit Pro
The 40 lines are fixed for this game, so your only decision before you spin is how much to bet per line. This can start at just 1c, with $10 ($400 total) available for the high rollers. If you do not want to wait for the game to play the tune and cycle through the win line, hitting ‘spin’ again banks your money and starts a new spin right away.
In addition to the regular symbols, you will find wilds, scatters (the quick hit symbols) and free games logos on the reels. Wilds are stacked; though do not appear on every spin. These will substitute for all of the regular symbols, though not the scatter or bonus ones. Free games symbols only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. If you get all 3 you will start the free spins game, along with the ‘prochinko’ sub game.
Quick hit symbols are the main attraction. These pay out wherever they land on the reels based on the total number visible. 4 is the minimum (1x your total bet) while 11 or more of them pays a huge 1500x your total bet. These symbols come stacked, so in theory you could hit this number on only 3 of the reels.
Regular wins look on the small side. What you need to keep in mind is that these are really just to keep your bankroll moving while you get either the quick-hit wins or the bonus features. These are topped with the wilds, 5 of which pay you 25x your stake. You will find bells, cherries and playing card symbols on the reels – and also the quick-hit pro logo (which does not count with the regular quick-hit logos towards your scatter wins).
Bonus Games for Quick Hit Pro
There is a game within a game for the free spins bonus. This starts off with 15 spins when you hit the 3 free games symbols. What you will see is a special counter on the top right of the reels, which collects pachinko balls. These appear on the reels as metal balls, and each time you get them they are added to this special counter. On the top left of the reels you will see a count of remaining spins and your total wins.
Once your spins are over, you will go to a new screen which shows a pachinko board. You ‘pull’ a red lever, which releases the balls one at a time. These bounce off of nails and end up in slots at the bottom of the board, each of which has a multiplier of between 1x and 5x. Each is a win based on your initial stake, which are totalled at the end and added to your free spins prizes.
Summary of Quick Hit Pro
With fast and smooth classic game play, the chance to win 1500x your stake with scatter symbols and a quirky break out bonus game too, there is a lot to like about Quick Hit Pro. This game has already proven to be a big success in live casinos – my prediction is that it will continue to attract fans now it is available online too. Make sure you check it out for yourself soon.
