If you like three-reel games that have a touch of nostalgia attached to them, then you’ll love ‘Cool Buck.’ This comes from Microgaming who have been producing some great games for around two decades now. They are pretty handy at producing games that remind some of us old fogies of the days when we used to play fruit machines in arcades and at the seaside.
There are a few differences between ‘Cool Buck’ and the kind of games we used to play or can be found in Las Vegas casinos. Bells and whistles are absent but there’s plenty to remind us of the old days.
This is a three reel game with five paylines available for you to try and win some money on.
The coin range for ‘Cool Buck’ goes from £0.25 to £5, that means the total cost goes from £1.25 to £125 if deciding to play the maximum five coins per spin. That’s a reasonable range so just choose one you’re comfortable with and can afford to lose and enjoy playing the game.
The symbols in this game will bring back a fair few memories. There’s the single, double and triple bars, 7’s and those good old cherries. There’s also the golden dollar sign which is the wild symbol in this game. It can substitute for all the other symbols in this game and really gives you a good chance of getting some more winning combinations.
The look of the game is a bit different from a lot you’ll see. The reels are at the top of the screen on the left hand side. Adjacent to them are the details about how much the symbols pay. All handy information of course and because this game isn’t the most complex you’ll play it really does look like the games we used to play years ago.
The golden dollar sign really plays a big part in this game as it also produces the biggest win in the game. If you can get three of the golden dollar signs then this gives you 6000x your line stake. However it had to be landed on the fifth payline, that’s the one that goes from the bottom left to the top right.
This is a high variance slot so that means the big wins aren’t going to be coming along all that often, well at least it didn’t for me. You need to have a decent bankroll for this game so manage it carefully. Start low and increase your bet as the wins (mostly small ones) start to flow in.
Playing the game is pretty easy to do. Your only real choice is on the stake and number of coins you want to play. You can simply press the bet max button if you want to.
There’s no bonus game in ‘Cool Buck.’ The nearest you get is the wild symbol.
The lack of a bonus game will disappoint a fair few of you. However this is still an enjoyable game to play though getting big wins isn’t the easiest job you’ll have.
