We also included a list of top game-specific features at the casino. The best way to explore the various extra features in the slot games is to take the plunge and immerse yourself in the immense selection of online slots that we have at the casino!
Bonus features on base game
Wild Reels and Stacked Wilds
Although unheard of in the days of one-armed robbers, nowadays Wild Reels and Stacked Wilds are starting to be pretty standard on online pokies. The principle is: “If one Wild symbol wasn’t enough, here’s a reelful!”
- Howling Wild on Cool Wolf slot turns entire reels Wild on the base game.
- Both Break Away and Football Star have a their own randomly activated features where you can score a Wild reel
- Collect-A-Wild™ on Untamed – Crowned Eagle gives you a chance for extra Wild wins, as you collect tokens for your reels with Wild symbols. When you’ve collected four, the reels turns Wild for the duration of 4 spins, and at best you can have all five reels going Wild at the same time!
- Special Wild on Girls with Guns – Frozen Dawn will turn reel 3 wild if the special symbol lands on it.
T-Rex Alert on Jurassic Park™ online slot will add 35 extra Wild symbols to the reels for the duration of 6 spins. Basically these do what normal Wild symbols do (which is to substitute symbols on the reels for a better chance of getting a winning combination).
Nowadays this feature can be found in quite a few Microgaming slots, but Rolling Reels™ was really popularised by the Break Away slot. Any symbols that were part of a winning combination on the base game will shatter after the payout, and new symbols roll into their place, giving you a chance to score extra wins with the same spin. Some casino games have the feature also in free spins.
Yup, wins don’t get much more random from this – not that we’re complaining. There are several varieties but they all work on the ‘just because’ principle:
- ‘Select an Insignia’ feature activates on Hitman™ slot from time to time for extra wins
- You can see Batman take on Bane for extra multipliers on the The Dark Knight Rises™ online slot
- Shootout Bonus on Girls With Guns – Frozen Dawn lets you score extra wins through the girls’ sharpshooting skills.
- A similar feature can be found on Terminator 2™ online slot where T-800 picks out symbols from the reels for extra wins.
Free spins and more on our slots
Bonus games are normally triggered by Scatters or special Bonus symbols. Some games will let you choose between bonus options while others simply do the choosing for you… For example Thunderstruck II, Immortal Romance and Playboy™ online slot come with fairly basic free spins features that include a chance for extra multipliers. But wait, there’s more!
Karate Pig keeps the free spins separate from bonus games, and lets you pick between two bonus game options, while Robo Jack allows you to change your randomly allocated bonus feature once if you’d like to try your luck with something else than the first option. You can get spins with Extra Wilds, Wild Reels, Scatter Prizes, Extra Spin Triggers or Multipliers.
Special Free Spins features
The idea of a multiplier trail is that the more wins you get with one spin, the bigger your multiplier will be; this feature is usually paired with Rolling Reels™ on the Free Spins feature. Most multiplier trails will go up to 10x the win, so this would be where you’ll have your fingers crossed, hoping for a win after a win…
Special Wilds on Free Spins
Magnetic Wilds™ on Girls with Guns – Frozen Dawn stack and stick together for the duration of the feature, and give you the opportunity to create Wild Reels. As an alternative, Frozen Wilds™, when selected on the Free Spins Feature, will freeze for the duration of three spins until they melt away.
Bonus games on online slots
Pick X of Y-type features
This is an old favourite, since with a few careful picks you can get extra wins very easily. Examples of this can be found from Karate Pig, Red Hot Devil (Wheel of Fire, anyone?) and Lucky Koi where you’ll get to go fishing in a Koi pond for mystery prizes.
Multilevel bonus features
When you trigger the bonus feature on Lucky Witch, you can play your way through multiple bonus levels picking objects for extra prizes and mind-boggling multipliers while hoping to gain entry to the next bonus level.
Gold Factory has a cheerful steampunk version of the same, and your picks can whisk you off from Boiler Room Bonus to Reactor Bonus for more prizes or a Free Spins Bonus.
Kung Fu Monkey and Hellboy have a storyline attached to the bonus feature where the protagonist of the game fights foes through the different levels, collecting prizes along the way.
Extra-Extra Special bonus features
These are usually like an advanced version of a multi-level bonus feature, with some idiosyncratic twists and quirks depending on the theme of the game.
Faithful to the theme, Hitman™ online slot has a special Mission Bonus where your trigger finger can score you huge wins with extra multipliers…
Tomb Raider – Secret of the Sword may have been one of the first pokies with bonus features that are central to the development of the story: as you play, you collect sword fragments and extra wins around the world before facing Lara Croft’s nemesis Amanda in an epic shoot-off.
On Avalon II, you make your way from Camelot to the Isle of Avalon through the bonus features as and when you activate them. Defeat Morgan Le Fay’s henchman, the Black Knight, and enjoy the rewards from finding the Holy Grail!
Euro Palace has hundreds of online pokies, and not two are the same so if you’re looking for variety, you’ve come to the right place! As an extra treat, we listed the best bonus features found off the beaten path – enjoy them all at Euro Palace.
Special mention: Top bonus features
Hot Ink offers one of the rarer features – if your first spin of the reels didn’t bring you a win, you can try again, one reel at a time! It’ll cost you, but if you were that close to bagging a massive jackpot, it might be worth an extra try.
Adjustable Gamble odds? Yes please – you can gamble a single win as many times as you want… AND you can bank a portion of it for extra security, so it’s definitely a plus for the more risk-averse casino players.
The feature is available on the nature-themed Untamed-series which includes Crowned Eagle, Bengal Tiger, Giant Panda and Wolf Pack.
The slot games in the Untamed-series also have another nice-to-have feature: If you already have two Scatters on the reels and see a third one peeking from the top or the bottom of the reels just waiting to trigger the Free Spins Feature, you have a chance to nudge it to your reels and fly off to a bonus feature.
On Racing for Pinks video slot the Bonus Race symbol on reel 1 and 5 will drive you off to a feature where you’ll watch the race between two cars and if you correctly pick the winner, you’ll get to see another race… five correct predictions will give you the grand prize of up to 175x your bet.
Soaring Wilds™ on Untamed – Crowned Eagle will appear on Free Spins and fly across the screen to turn one of the symbols Wild at random while the random multiplier attached to the feature will increase any wins gained some more.
On Loose Cannon’s Wild Cannon-feature a cannonball coming out of a mortar that would make even Big Bertha blush will turn random symbols on your reels Wild.
Introduced in the So Much More-series which includes the slot games So Much Candy, So Much Sushi and So Many Monsters, the Splitting Symbols-feature can multiply your symbol rewards with gigantic symbol wins.
