Loaded Slot Game Review
Now don’t get too excited because this isn’t a game dedicated to the lads mag ‘Loaded.’ No pics of girls from Geordie Shore or The Only Way is Essex here thank you very much. Instead this game from hugely successful slot designers Microgaming is based on characters such as Huggy Bear from ‘Starsky and Hutch’ so look out for pimps wearing gold chains and outlandish hats.
It has to be called ‘Loaded’ because the people shown in this slot are all extremely wealthy. That wealth may have been earned through dubious means but they are most certainly loaded.
This is a game that has a total of five reels and 25 paylines for you to win some cash on. Playing the game costs between £0.01 and £125. You should have no problem finding a level you can comfortably gamble at. Don’t think you have to keep activating plenty of paylines because you can trigger the bonus game even if you’re only playing one line.
Symbols in the game show just how wealthy these people are. There are gold record decks, a luxury yacht, a mansion, a music award, an extremely flash car and a selection of characters. There’s a really big guy who you definitely won’t upset and the same goes for the guy dressed in orange. We also see three women who don’t quite look like the kind of girls your mother would like to see you bring home.
The wild symbol is the main character in the game, namely ‘Triple 7.’ He’s in all white and has a cane he likes using to slightly lift his hat in a handy piece of animation. He can get you some excellent wins by substituting for other symbols on the reels to get you winning combinations. Any wins that he does get you are tripled so keep an eye out for him. five wilds win you 35,000x your line bet. He’s not able to substitute for the scatter symbol which is the hand that has two gold rings, a gold bracelet and is holding a microphone. This, as you will soon read, plays a key part in triggering the bonus game in ‘Loaded.’
When you get a win in the base game there’s a chance to increase it. You’ll be offered a gamble feature which you can either go for or just ignore and take your win and get ready to spin for the next game. If you are brave enough to go for the gamble feature, please be careful with it and don’t get carried away if you get a bit of success. It’s the usual feature of trying to guess the colour of the next card to double your win. Even braver players will try to guess the suit of the next card and quadruple their win. Try this with a pack of playing cards and discover just how unlikely it is that you will keep getting wins and avoid losing your winnings.
Make sure you know exactly what’s happening in this game. That’s achieved by accessing the paytable and the game rules. Lots of useful information there about how the game works. Also have some free games to see how the game runs and then you can be fully prepared to risk your real cash when playing this game.
The scatter symbol is one to always keep an eye out for. If three of them appear anywhere on the reels then this will trigger the free spins round in ‘Loaded.’ Before you start the free spins round there’s an important decision to make. You have to choose between playing with 12 free spins and a 4x multiplier, 16 free spins but with only a 3x multiplier or go up to 24 free spins with all wins doubled. It’s best to go for the middle option which has a decent number of free spins and a reasonable multiplier.
An enjoyable game to place with a good theme that is well executed. The bonus game is a good one and it’s really handy when a wild gets you a win. Just be careful with the gamble feature.
