Wipeout Slot Action Takes Place on Big Blue Waves
The background to this slot is a gigantic blue wave, with the sun shining on the water, and the surfer on a surfboard in the top left corner. He looks happy but is obviously just about to wipeout and crash. This slot game is by Barcrest, and has five reels and ten pay lines. The colours are all bright, and the action takes place on a beach or in the ocean, all under the clear blue sky of summer. Wipeout is just as effective on a mobile device as online, and includes funky symbols and a great free spins round.
Symbols in Wipeout are all related to the sport of surfing, and the surfers themselves. There is a super-sized Wave, a hippie Camper van, and the Sun with its tongue hanging out, and the surfer himself. There are the standard playing cards from ten to the ace, which represent the lower value symbols. All of this takes place with guitar music playing in the background.
Surfing in the Summer Heat
The Wild symbol is a big word Wild floating in the spray of the surf, and this Wild can replace any other symbol in the game to complete a winning combination, except for the Scatter symbol. The Scatter is the Surfer on his board. The three high value symbols are the huge Wave in front of a palm tree, the VW camper van, and the sun wearing green sunglasses, with his tongue hanging out in the heat. If you land three, four or five matching symbols in sequence from the left reel on an active pay line you will win one of many good pay-outs in Wipeout. You will receive a small payout for three of the playing card symbols, but a great jackpot prize of 250 times your original wager for finding five Wild symbols together.
The Scatter symbol in Wipeout also offers some good prizes, and if you land three anywhere on the reels you will get a payout of five times your first wager. Four Scatters appearing will earn you twenty five times your first wager, and for landing five matching Scatters you will be awarded 250 times your initial stake.
A Profitable and Unique Free Spins Round
The Free spins bonus round is also activated when you land three or more of the Surfer Scatter symbol anywhere on the reels, and you will receive many free spins but just three lives. Two new extra symbols are now added to the reels.
The first is an image of the surfer falling off his surfboard and wiping out, and each time he lands on reel five you will lose one life.
The second symbol is a headshot of the Surfer Dude, and if you can find the surfer’s blonde head on reel five you will regain a life.
You can never hold more than three lives, and when they are used up your bonus round is over. If your round manages to last for twenty five spins, you will receive a reward of twenty times your initial stake, and lasting for fifty spins will reward you with two hundred times your original wager. After fifty free spins the round will end.
Many of the symbols in Wipeout are stacked in groups of three, including the Wild symbol, which certainly offers many more chances of landing some good pay-outs.
