Ed’s Venture Slots
Ever met Wall-E, the almost cute little robot? Sheriff Gaming are at it again with their cutting-edge innovations, this time bringing to the slot gaming arena a video slot machine that has a Wall-E-style robot with an alien moving around in some space-age camper van.
Remember holding your breath as the first Mars Rovers touched down on the planet and how you wondered whether the Martians living there would be little green people? Or just what extraterrestrial life you would be socializing with? The moment to meet your new neighbors is now, that is if you buy into Sheriff’s theories, and these are the surfing aliens in Ed’s Ventures.
Ed’s Ventures is a 5-reel, 20-payline 3D video slot. All action is out of this world. Ed’s Ventures is a combination of an extra-terrestrial fantasy game and fun. The setting is Mars – the holiday destination for any holidaying alien with the slightest vestige of self respect. Though you won’t be swimming much, the summers are hot and so are the winters. The story isn’t all that developed but using a space adventure theme, 3D characters, and animations on the reels has created a rich, fun, and highly entertaining atmosphere.
You will meet Wall-E’s cousin (that’s our robot friend), who goes on his Martian adventure and meets Ed the alien. Ed is a fun-loving alien who with his beach shorts, buckets, and spades, has you wondering whether this is really Mars or a Florida beach. A bewildered Mars Mission Control looks on as the pair have their fun. They are surrounded by beach balls, umbrellas, deckchairs, planets and galaxies. The red planet is very easy to pick out; after all this is a Martian adventure slot. Other than these symbols on the reels, there are bonus features like a scatter symbol, a wild symbol, and a bonus game.
The slot is non-progressive with a $6,250 maximum jackpot win on a bet max spin.
Sheriff Gaming, the masters of the 3D slot genre, have made Ed’s Ventures a slot game every player can enjoy, with the low minimum bet of $0.01 per line. You can bet up to $1 per line. As for the coin bets, you can bet between 1 and 5 coins per line. The maximum bet is $100 and this gives you the best chances of hitting the progressive jackpot so you can fly back to earth draped in riches.
How to Play Ed’s Ventures
Playing Ed’s Venture is easy as pie. There are six control buttons on the bottom of your screen, each for a specific function. Before you spin the reels, you have to first make your total bets using the choose bet, select lines, and line bet buttons. You can choose to spin at the highest coin value and coins per line, in which case you will click on the bet max button. The final act is now the spinning, and you can click on either the spin button for manual spinning or auto spin button for automatic spins.
Ed is the wild symbol and capable of substituting all symbols on reel 3 except for the scatter and bonus symbols, hence giving you winning combinations. He actually expands and turns the entire reel wild.
The bonus symbol is the camper van. This symbol triggers the bonus game. This is essentially a pick me bonus game triggered by 3 or more camper vans. You are presented with seven planets and you must locate the planets with enough usable energy to power Ed’s space craft. Accumulate as much energy as you can and you will win more cash. If you do select a planet that doesn’t have sufficient energy, Ed’s journey will end here. You will lose your bonus cash and even your payline winnings.
The scatter symbol is the sandcastle. When you hit 3 or more scatters, you get free spins and a multiplier through an instant click me game. The scatters appear on reels 1, 3, and 5. You then click on as many symbols as you can to collect the free spins and multiplier amounts.
