Tradition meets technology in Novomatic’s vintage-style online casino slot, Party Games Slotto. This five-reel, 20-payline virtual slot game combines the endearing simplicity of classic fruit machines with the extra wins and bonus features of modern video slots.
Novomatic has gone back to basics with the layout and symbols form Party Games Slotto. The reels are set against a simple black background with electric blue stripes, reminiscent of the flashy arcade-style offline slots of the 80s. The same goes for the Party Games Slotto soundtrack – or lack thereof.
Party Games Slotto symbols include familiar favourites like cherries, plumbs, watermelons, 7s, gold bars, and the like – all rendered as simple cartoon drawings. The game’s only unique symbols are the wild logo and the gun-toting, moustachioed sheriff.
With the classic surface appearance left intact, Party Games Slotto hides some ultra modern elements – including a bonus game and gamble feature – just beneath the surface.
The Party Games Slotto Wild Symbol
In Party Games Slotto, the wild symbol is very easy to identify because it takes the simple form of a pale blue circle with “WILD” printed across it in big yellow letters. Instead of only appearing on only one or two reels, as is often the case in online slots, the Party Games Slotto wild appears on all BUT one reel – Reel 2.
The wild symbol is special because it can stand in place of any other Party Games Slotto symbol – with the exception of the sheriff scatter – to complete winning payline combinations.
The Party Games Slotto Sheriff Scatter
The other very special Party Games Slotto symbol is the aforementioned sheriff. Although the relevance of his presence on this online fruit machine is a mystery, this is one lawman that players will want to run into. That’s because, as the Party Games Slotto scatter symbol, the sheriff does not have to appear on an active payline in order to yield a payout.
What’s more, the sheriff is players’ ticket to the Party Games Slotto bonus round, where they stand the chance to win impressive instant cash prizes.
The Party Games Slotto Pick-Em Bonus Feature
When three or more Party Games Slotto sheriff scatter symbols appear on the reels, the game’s pick-em bonus feature is activated. Players are then taken to a separate screen where they must choose between three party characters to reveal an instant cash prize, the value of which is dependent on players’ current wagers.
The Party Games Slotto Gamble Feature
Party Games Slotto players are given the rare opportunity to multiply their wins by selecting the gamble option that comes up after each winning combination. Although this can be quite a lucrative move, it is also dangerous as players run the risk of losing all of their winnings if the gamble does not go in their favour.
More cautious players can simply select “collect” in order to receive their winnings and return to the Party Games Slotto reels.
Party Games Slotto is Not a Lottery Game
Contrary to what its name might suggest, Party Games Slotto is 100% slot and has nothing whatsoever to do with lotteries.
