Free Wipeout Casino Game
This slot by IGT is all about the surf, featuring many symbols related to the outdoor pursuit including a surfer dude with compulsory bleached hair, a camper van, the sun and the waves. The title of the slot was perhaps inspired by the 60s surf music hit of the same name, the group making a name for themselves with their surf sound in the early 1960’s. The highlight of this slot is the feature round, where you’ll find a free spins round with a difference – making for a very original feature.
A large blue wave fills the backdrop to the reels, with water from the wave swirling across the controls at the bottom of the screen. The surfer dude stands to the top left of the reels looking mightily happy and like the symbols at the game, is drawn in a cartoon style, giving the slot a fresh, fun air. The sun is perhaps the best symbol on the reels. He wears sun glasses and his tongue is lolloping out, clearly being affected by the heat (he only has himself to blame!), although despite this, he is still smiling. Accompanying the game is a Beach Boys inspired soundtrack, adding to the sun, sea and surf.
Playing Wipeout Slot
This is a five reel game much like the majority of internet slots, however with just ten win lines, this doesn’t quite conform to the norm. In fact you can play any number between 1 and 10 if you choose to. You’ll also choose your stake per line and then be ready to go!
A look at the pay table tells you that wins come along when landing three or more consecutive symbols from left to right on a win line. The largest prizes are awarded when landing 5 in a row and of the standard symbols, the surf one is the top paying at 200 coins. The camper van and the sun symbols come next at 150 and 120 coins respectively, while the playing card letters from Jack to Ace complete the standard symbols on the reels.
The top paying symbol in the game is the wild one and should this appear five times in a row you’ll win 250 coins. However, this will perhaps be more valuable as the wild, where it will substitute for any other symbol on the reels apart from the scatter.
The surf dude is the final symbol at the game and he is the one you’ll want to see the most – landing him three or more times will activate the free spins feature.
Having landed the feature you’ll receive an automatic win based upon the number of scatters – 5x your total bet size for landing 3, while awards of 25x and 250x await if landing 4 or 5. The actual free spins round is slightly unusual in that you’ll not have a set number of spins – you’ll have lives instead. You’ll start with 3 lives but find two extra symbols on the fifth reel, these being an extra life symbol (the face of the surf dude) and a wipeout symbol (the surf dude falling off his surf). Every time the wipeout symbol appears you’ll lose a life, the extra life symbol boosting your lives. The round ends when you run out of lives, although you’ll find added bonuses if you reach 25 spins or 50 spins.
Wipeout Slot Conclusion
This slot by IGT is the perfect one for a fun fifteen minutes at the casino. The game has an enjoyable feel to it and it plays well, especially during the free spins round which you’ll find very different to your standard free games feature. Whether the slot will retain any lasting appeal is open to question, as there are no features outside of the reels and no Jackpot amount to be won, but for a short burst, jump in!
