Wonder Woman Gold Slot from Bally
Wonder Woman is one of the most famous DC comics creations, the character first made an appearance back in the 1940’s, still remaining popular today. The superhero made her first feature film appearance in 2016 in the ‘Batman v Superman’ movie, while the ‘Wonder Woman’ movie in 2017 sees her first dedicated movie.
This slot looks back to an earlier time, when Lynda Carter famously played the character in the 1970’s TV series – an era where many teenage boys would have a ‘Wonder Woman’ poster on their walls. The series is so iconic that it was little surprise to see that an online slot has been produced on the back of it, this Bally slot is popular, with multiple instances often found in larger casinos. You can’t miss the large cabinet and colorful graphics. You will also find a Wonder Woman Wild slot available.
How the Wonder Woman Slot Works
The Wonder Woman slots machine features five reels, each of the reels showing four rows. The game has a total of 40 win lines and the slot pays from left to right. A glance at the pay table will show you that Wonder Woman’s alter ego Diana Prince is the highest paying of all, worth 375 coins for the maximum 5 in a row. Diana Prince wears glasses and keeps her hair up, which ensures her anonymity. Steve Trevor (portrayed by Lyle Waggoner) is the only other character from the series on the reels and pays out a top prize of 150 coins.
Other symbols include a jet fighter, the famous Wonder Woman golden tiara and cuffs and those long red boots. The standard symbols are completed by the playing cards J, Q, K and A.
This slots machine uses the ‘Super Stacks’ system where before every spin one symbol is chosen at random and this will be far more prominent than any other. Ideally, you’d want this symbol to be one of the high paying ones – and to line up full reels, along with wilds.
The game has an expanding wild symbol. At first, this will appear as a single symbol showing the Wonder Woman logo, but this will expand to a full reel showing the super hero herself if a win will be achieved in doing so.
Jackpots and Free Spins – The Wonder Woman Gold Slot Features
The first feature of the Wonder Woman slot machine is based around the three progressive jackpots – the mini, the major and the mega. Each of these jackpots has their own symbol and if this symbol appears on both reels 1 and 5 during a spin, the jackpot is yours. This is a good, uncomplicated way of landing a jackpot and having hit the symbol on reel one, you’ll have the excitement of waiting to see if it appears on reel 5 too.
The main feature of the game is the free spins bonus round. Unusually, you have the option to enter the feature immediately by simply paying for it. This immediate entry comes at the cost of 925 coins, although you can also gain entry by landing the ‘free games’ symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5. You should be aware that the pay table for the ‘buy a bonus’ feature is slightly different to the pay table if you win entry.
Having entered the feature, you’ll now have a choice of how to play it:
25 free slot games where any J or Q is transformed into Diana Prince.
16 free games where any J, Q or K is transformed into Diana Prince.
8 free games where any J, Q, K or A is transformed into Diana Prince.
Whichever option you choose, the spins will be more valuable than usual, as the lowest paying symbols will be replaced by the highest paying one – never a bad thing.
Iconic 1970’s Visuals and Audio
Bally have designed a game here which has references to both the comic and TV series. You’ll find bold bright colors everywhere, while Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman stands to the left of the slot machine reels. The two character symbols on the reels each have some detailed video animations, while the other themed symbols add some sparkle to the game. The soundtrack is very 1970’s, especially when you hear the theme tune from the series during the free games feature – the only thing I can say about it is that it probably sounded cool at the time!
Wonder Woman Gold – The Right Superhero Slot for You?
This is a colorful and very entertaining slot machine. The base game, with the super stacks, can offer up some very big wins and the expanding wild is a good extra too. Having the option to enter the free games feature directly is very different and a good idea for those with little patience! The feature itself is made more interesting by the choice you have to make before playing. This original gameplay alongside the impressive visuals makes for a must play slot which fully deserves its current popularity.
About the Wonder Woman TV Series
The Wonder Woman TV series came about after a television movie ‘The New, Original Wonder Woman’ hit the small screen, starring Lynda Carter in the lead role. This movie was set in World War II and it was such a success that ABC picked it up as a TV series.
Wonder Woman would run on ABC for just a single season and achieved solid ratings, but the cost of setting it during the war led to spiraling costs, so it was not renewed. Warner Brothers came along and picked it up and decided to set the series in the then modern-day 1970’s and pitched it to CBS, who happily aired it for a further two seasons.
One of the trademark moments from the TV series was the transformation from Diana Prince to Wonder Woman. Lynda Carter, who before becoming the super hero would rise to fame as Miss World USA, would simply spin and following an explosion would appear as the red, gold and blue super hero (although she would always remember to take off her glasses first).
Although the series finished in the 1970’s, in October 2014, DC comics announced a comic book series which would continue the story – the first comic appearing in May 2015.
