It’s nice to think of a slot game that centres itself around such a retro gadget as the gumball machine. However, it wouldn’t be much of a game without some inbuilt features, would it? Fortunately, Genesis is fully aware of this, and has chosen to add a couple of extra perks into it. For example, there is the inclusion of a wild icon
. This one can show up in any position and will substitute for all other symbols on the reels. This is true for all icons, except for the scatter addition. And if you manage to spin five of the wild icon into view on a pay line, you’ll receive 1,000 times your wager as a pay out.
Turning to thee scatter symbol, this is the image of the yellow and brown gumball kept inside a capsule. Scatter symbols have the unique ability to come into view anywhere on the reels and still provide you with a pay out. For example, five of them appearing across the screen will offer up a maximum reward of 1,250 times your overall wager.
Now, you will also get to see that on every spin, a gumball will fall out from the machine and roll down the line. The total amount in there will reduce every time, and the number of gumballs remaining is always on display. If the gumball that comes out of the machine is a base game feature gumball, the base game becomes modified. The features that you can trigger are any of the following:
- Freespins feature. This gumball comes in the form of the red circle with the white arrow on it. This sees the freespins round begin after any other wins are paid from the base game. After the freespins round is over, the gumball machine resets the total number of gumballs within. You will receive eight freespins to play through altogether.
- Added Wild. This gumball has the word ‘WILD’ written on it, and it will automatically add between one and 10 wild symbols to the reels. Line wins then go through evaluation and any pay out provided accordingly.
- Credit Prize. It is this one that offers up a random credit reward to you. This can be a value of 6, 7, 10, 15, 20, 30 or 40 times your total wager amount.
- Random Multiplier. Should this gumball show up, all wins will receive a random multiplier amount between times two and times 10.
- Symbol Upgrade. If this one pops out, you will get to see any of the playing card icons go through an upgrade. This transforms them into any of the four higher paying standard symbols or the wild icon.
