King of Bling Slot Machine
Many of the bold and colorful slots you’ll find on the casino floor are made by Incredible Technologies (ITS). King of Bling is quite simply bolder, louder and more in your face than any other slot in their range. This has a dance soundtrack, silver and diamond symbols and a real upbeat feel. I am sure this will appeal to the younger generation, as well as regular players looking for something completely different in a slots theme.
There are random on-reel features and a DJ ‘scratching’ bonus game – as well as a ‘Spinsanity!’ free spins round which is introduced by a dog in a suit! If you think this slot sounds a little crazy, well, you’d be right – it is deliberately as over the top as possible – which makes it very entertaining to play.
How to Win on King of Bling
This slot has 40 win lines, and transparent reels over a city scape where the sparking silver symbols float. These include a very 1980’s looking mobile phone, a portable stereo, what could be a hummer jeep, a Rolex watch and dollar signs.
The best paying symbols are the wilds (an explosion of gold with the word ‘wild’ in diamonds) and the golden sparkling dollar sign. Both of these will pay a generous 1000 coins if you get 5 on a win-line, with 100 for 4 and (for the dollar) 30 for 3. Three symbols share the next prize level. These are the SUV, the diamond teeth and the watch – each of these is worth 300 for the full set of 5. The boom box, rims, cup and phone make up the smaller wins. There are no playing card symbols on the reels of King of Bling.
You will also find some bonus symbols appearing. These are yellow records, and will appear with the word ‘yeah yeah’ or ‘tip it’ spoken over the music. 3 of these trigger the scratching record second screen bonus game. First, there are a lot of random on-reel features to cover.
On Reel Features in King of Bling
As you play, different characters will appear over the reels. These look semi-gangster and semi musician types – all dressed in suits (including the dog). Known as ‘Shoutout’ random awards, each one brings something different to the game.
Smooth Win Multipliers – a guy in a white hat appears before you spin, and awards a random multiplier to your wins for that spin of between 6x and 10x.
Make it Rain Free Credits – a guy with an orange glow and a big pile of bright green dollars in his hand appears and awards you 200 free credits.
Awwww Yeah!! – a seated guy with a chunky gold necklace appears and changes round the symbols after you spin to create more wins.
Back ‘Dat Thang Up!!! – A woman this time, bending over, appears and triggers a respin by clearing all the symbols and replacing them with new ones.
Let’s Get Wild!!! – a guy kicking out with bright yellow sneakers appears to randomly change symbols into wilds, again creating extra wins.
Bout Time to Clean House! – a big bearded guy appears, again symbols are randomly changed into wilds.
Spinsanity! – This is my favorite of the random features. A dog in a suit appears and awards you up to 12 free spins. The music goes up tempo, with the words ‘free spins’ (via a special effect) are woven into the music.
King of Bling Second Screen Bonus Game
Even with all the on-reel features ITS have included an entertaining second screen game. This is called the ‘Scratch Master DJ Bonus Game’ and is triggered by hitting 3 records anywhere on the reels.
Your view changes to that of a turntable in a nightclub, with bright lights and the shadows of a dancing crowd behind. Your task is to scratch the yellow record in the middle of the screen by moving your hand over it. This triggers credits which move upwards to a total box at the top of the screen. As you scratch, characters will appear with encouraging captions.
Design and Setup of King of Bling
Overall the combination of audio and visual production on this slot is excellent. The bling nature of the symbols works really well. Even on losing spins the ‘bounce’ of the symbols looks great, and when you win they will expand in turn to show you the winning combinations. If you hit a big win there is a fountain of dollar coins too.
I love the old newspaper clipping feel of the characters coming in to award random bonuses. The music works well, with though may get a little repetitive if full-on dance style tunes are not your thing (you can adjust the volume either up or down).
Under all the bling and crazy amount of features, you’ll find a 5 by 3 grid with 40 win lines. You can bet from 1c per line, or 40c per spin.
I have seen many slots try and create a fresh new perspective, and King of Bling manages to nail it. The key for me is the slick and smooth production and really sharp bling graphics. Having plenty of random features will be enough to stop most players from getting bored, and the DJ game is certainly a unique bonus.
