Aussie Rules Slot from Rival Gaming
Australians have their own game of football . This is nothing like US Football or soccer, and to the outsider seems to resemble Rugby. This colorful real money slot game from Rival Gaming is themed on Aussie Rules football, and includes many of the symbols that fans will associate with the game on the reels.
Overall this is a simple enough slot. There is a free spins bonus game which comes with a 3x multiplier on your wins – and also a break out goal kick game where you’ll be awarded a random number of coins.
How to Win on the Aussie Rules Slot
There is a symbol labelled ‘Jackpot’ on this slot, though the prize does not quite match the statement. This is a classic sleeveless shirt worn in these games. Landing 5 on one of the 15 win lines will net you 500 coins, with 150 coins for 4, 25 for 3 and 4 coins for just 2.
In fact the biggest payout comes from the referee, who is dressed in white and holds 2 white flags. This is the wild symbol (substituting for all the regular symbols, though not the scatter / bonus symbols). Landing 5 on a line will get you 5000 coins, with 1000 for 4, 100 for 3 and 20 coins for just 2.
While the jersey and the referee pay for 2+ on a win line, all of the others require a minimum of 3. These are the not too intelligent looking player (400 for 5), boots (300) and whistle (250). There are more symbols in the form of playing card characters ace, king, queen, jack and 10 – these make up the smaller prizes.
Aussie Rules Slot Bonus Games
Landing 3 of the ball symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger a break out goal kicking game. If you wanted to test your skills, you’ll be disappointed as the game will kick the ball for you. Your role is only to hit the button to start the kick off. When you do this, a player will kick it and you will be awarded a number of coins depending on how well he did.
The other bonus game is a simple free spins round. This is triggered when you hit3 or more of the plastic water bottles anywhere on the reels. While there is nothing too interesting about the game play, you will have the chance to win big. All of your wins are multiplied by 3 during this bonus – and with up to 100 spins (from the maximum 5 bottles) you could be looking at a very big windfall.
Setup and Play for Aussie Rules
You can tell the age of Rival Gaming online slots by the number of win-lines they use. This is an older video slot game, with just 15 lines crossing from the left to right over the reels. You can even lower this number if you wish. Other options available include selecting your preferred coin size (from 1c up to $1) and choosing the number of coins that you play per line (up to 5). This makes the smallest spin for all 15 lines at just 15c, with the biggest at $75.
There are some nice touches to the design of this slot. The reels are transparent, which helps to reveal an Aussie Rules stadium (complete with crowd) behind them whenever you spin. The symbols themselves are bright and crisp, with a slight cartoon-like quality.
Animations are good during the goal kicking bonus game. You will see a muscled guy kick the ball, and some fireworks whenever he hits the 4 goal posts on the screen. It is a shame this bonus game is not more engaging (you simply click a button and the kick happens from there. There are minor animations on the reels, think flashing or growing slightly, rather than anything too interesting. These are also starting to show the age of this slot!
There is an upbeat tune playing, accompanied by a tambourine, while you are playing. This is harmless enough for a short spin, though you’ll be reaching for the mute button if you are playing for longer
Overall Experience with Aussie Rules
There are no particularly compelling reasons to head back to this slot. While this is perfectly playable and entertaining in places, there are better slots in the Rival Gaming range. If you enjoy Aussie Rules, then this might just be one for your should-play list!
