Tipsy Tourist Slots
The Tipsy Tourist starts with one of the best opening animations you’ll find at any online slot. An office worker sits in his cubicle and sees a large pile of papers land on his desk. Completely disillusioned, he walks to grab a coffee, head down the whole way.
While pouring the coffee, he spots a brochure for a Miami beach holiday and next thing you know, the office worker is sitting on a plane.
Upon landing in Miami, his outfit changes from shirt and tie to beachwear as he spins around ‘Wonder Woman’ style and this sets the scene for the slot perfectly. The slot features both a free spins round and drinking bonus round – no wonder he is the Tipsy Tourist.
How to Win on The Tipsy Tourist
In the base game of this BetSoft designed slot you’ll win when hitting three or more consecutive symbols from left to right on a win line. The tourist himself, now wearing shades, is the highest paying symbol on the reels, worth 350 coins for hitting the maximum 5 in a row. He is joined by a female companion, worth 200 coins, while the plane tickets and sea shells both pay 150 coins for a full house of 5. These standard symbols are completed by the playing card letters and numbers 10, J, Q, K and A.
These wins are aided along by the wild which shows a beach sign in the sand. This only appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 will substitute for any other symbol on the reels apart from the two scatters. This wild plays a huge role in the following free spins feature.
Every time you land a win, you have the opportunity of hitting the ‘double up’ button. This is simply a case of predicting whether a face down playing card is red or black. Get it right and you have indeed doubled your money, get it wrong and you can join the tipsy tourist drowning your sorrows at the bar.
The Tipsy Tourist Slot Features
The first feature at the game is a free spins which is activated by hitting the beach ball scatter symbol on reels 3, 4 and 5. You’ll have 8 free spins and during these spins you can re-trigger by landing the three scatters again. These are no normal spins however; as you’ll find that the wilds become sticky. This is always a nice touch in any free spins round, ensuring that the feature becomes potentially more profitable as the spins continue. The final two or three spins can often feature wilds scattered everywhere.
The second feature is the ‘Drinking Bonus Round’ which sees a drinking game take place. Correctly guess the result of the next coin flip and your opponent will take a drink, while getting it wrong will see you take a drink. The round ends when you or your opponent finishes all 3 drinks, while correct guesses will see those wins increase significantly.
Design and Setup
The opening sequence really sets this slot off on a great foot visually and this only continues throughout the gameplay too. The Tipsy Tourist stands to the left of the reels throughout the game in his Hawaiian shirt, doing his best to look cool, but not really pulling it off! The symbols are all designed in an easy on the eye cartoon style and bring a great amount of color to the reels, while you’ll find some nice animation when landing a win. The accompanying sound to the slot is good too, with a calypso tune playing throughout.
The Tipsy Tourist is a five reel slot, with a total of 20 pay lines, although if you do want to play fewer you can enjoy any odd number of lines between 1 and 20. The stake per line ranges from just 2c, all the way through to 50c, while you’ll also set the bet per line, ranging through 1 to 5 (this is automatically set to 5 and spins when you hit the ‘max bet’ button as opposed to the spin button). The game has a handy auto play feature, where you’ll set the coin value, the number of lines, the bet per line and the number of spins.
BetSoft are known for their range of high quality, great looking games, and you’ll know you’re in for a treat again from the opening sequence of The Tipsy Tourist. The highlight of the slot is the free spins bonus round, where the wins get bigger and bigger as the feature progresses, while the drinking game bonus round is enjoyable too. All in all, this makes for a hugely entertaining game, which having played once, you’ll certainly return to again.
