Bowled Over Slot Machine
There is nothing more enjoyable than a trip to the local bowling alley for a game of Ten Pin Bowling and this Rival ‘iSlot’ title enables you to experience the game from within a slot. Featured on the reels are a number of bowling themed symbols including the ball, the bowlers themselves, snacks and refreshments and those multi-coloured shoes which every bowler will openly complain about wearing, but secretly think they look good in. The game has two distinct bonus features – one an impressive free spins round with some nice added multipliers, while the other gives you the opportunity of hitting a strike when you take to the alley itself and have a bowl!
As you might expect, the slot is set inside a bowling centre, with numerous lanes on show. The overriding look of the slot is dominated by the shiny wooden tiles you’ll find on the floor of a bowling alley, these appearing on both the backdrop and as a backing for each of the symbols on the reels. Somewhat disappointingly you’ll find that the majority of the symbols are the playing card letters and numbers from 9 to Ace and with each of the symbols being somewhat large, these overshadow much of the game. Each time you hit spin you are met by a high pitched fast moving series of sounds that might remind you of the sound from the scenes of ‘The Flintstones’ when Fred would bowl a ball on tiptoes.
