Fixer Upper Slot from Rival Gaming

This 5 reel online slot game covers a national sport – the sport of renovating (adding value to) your house.

The intro video sets the scene, with a couple buying a run-down house with the intention of bringing it back to life. On first view this looks like an older slot, with basic graphics. Once you start spinning your will realize that there is more to it than the slightly dated look suggests.

There are expanding wilds, animations, a break out bonus game and a free spins round which comes with some welcome multipliers.

  • How to Win on the Fixer Upper Slot

    Most of the symbols represent tools used in fixing up a house – though it is the trusty ladder that you will want to see the most often. This is the wild symbol, which substitutes for everything else (except for the scatters) to create more wins. It also has the single biggest prize attached to it, worth an impressive 8888 coins for 5 on a line. During the regular game, wins involving wilds are multiplied by the number of wilds involved – as you will see below things get even better with the wilds during the free spins bonus game.

    The next best paying symbol is the guy in the red cap, this is worth 500 coins for 5 – and has prizes going down to 2 on a line. When you win with these symbols, the same guy walks from the left across the reels and attempts to do some plumbing on the pipes at the side of the reels.

    Other symbols include the shovel (400 for 5), wrench (300), paint brush (200) and staple gun (125). You will also find a hammer, saw, drill and that could be a tape measure making up the smaller wins.

    There are two special symbols which are involved in the bonus games. These are female character with the white hat, and the can of green paint.


    Bonus Games on Fixer Upper

    Free spins are worth hitting on this slot – thanks to the wilds and the extra multipliers that wins involving these will have. Ladders now expand to cover entire reels when they appear, with those extra wilds giving you a lot more winning chances. The multiplier for wild wins also increases. If you hit a win with 1 wild that is worth 3x the amount on the pay table, 2 wilds make this 4x and 3 wilds give you a 5x multiplier. You will see those wins totaled up in a box that appears above the reels on the left hand side.

    As usual the number of free spins you receive depends on how many symbols you hit on the triggering spin. In this case you get 15 spins for 3, 30 spins for 4 and 50 spins for 5.

    The other bonus game is triggered by 3+ paint cans anywhere on the reels. First the screen fills up with water (with sound effects) and then you find yourself in a flooded cellar. What you need to do is fix some rusty pipes. This is easy, you click on the bad pipe then drag and drop the right shape to fix it. When you have finished you will be shown the total number of coins won – I found this to be quite high compared to the spin amount, though your mileage may vary.

    Setup / Design for Fixer Upper

    This Rival Gaming slot has 20 win lines (selectable) and you can play them all for 20c per spin and up. You’ll have a wide choice of lines, coin size and the number of coins per line – and whether to click for each spin or use the auto play instead.

    While the design feels a little dated, this does have some imagination when it comes to the theme. The reels are encased in the wooden frame of a house, with those timbers carrying on above the reels to give a sense of depth. Each of the symbols has an animation, for example the staple gun is used to create a bird house – with the bird then popping its head out. Wins are highlighted with a paint bush drawing a brightly colored square around the winners, which is a nice touch.

    There are some more advanced animations, for  example the guy walking in front of the reels and the elaborate break out bonus game. These are entertaining enough, though far from cutting edge in terms of their design.


    Overall Experience

    When I first saw this slot I imagined an older game with less interactive features. Playing it turned out to be a pleasant surprise. The free spins round can be very generous. While the break out game does get dull after a couple of runs through, you can be sure of a generous payout when you do hit this.
