Not a sport that has really taken off in the UK despite the presence of plenty of female competitors but Roller Derby is really popular in the USA. Now it’s a slot game from Microgaming who just keep on putting out one great game after another. The sport may not be familiar to you but I’m sure the idea of winning great prizes on slot games most definitely is, so let’s learn some more about ‘Roller Derby.’
The opening scene of the game shows just how rough this sport can be. Once the game begins, in the background to the reels we get to see a view of the rink where the next Roller Derby event is going to be taking place. The soundtrack really gets you in the mood for this game. It’s relentless and really powerful so I had no thought of muting it. The game has five reels and a total of 25 paylines. It’s entirely up to you to decide how many of the paylines to activate on each spin of the reels. Playing the game costs between £0.01 and £250 so all you high rollers out there will be keen to play this game and get some big wins.
The main symbols in the game are three of the girls who will be taking part in the Roller Derby. One has a red crash helmet and the others green and black. We also get the referee who’s blowing his whistle after the latest foul in what can be a very rough game. Also there’s the nine to Ace playing card symbols, one too many I think. At least they get a bit of work carried out on them with a Roller Derby skate wheels behind them.
The wild symbol is the pink roller skate and this can get you some excellent wins. That’s because it can substitute for other symbols but not the Roller Derby scatter symbol.
Prepare yourself fully for playing this game. That means reading the paytable and the game rules. That will teach you all you need to know about the game. Have some free games and then you’ll see just how the game runs.
Just the one bonus feature in this game and it’s of the free spins variety. You need to get at least three of the scatter symbols anywhere on the reels to trigger this. This means you don’t have to be activating loads of paylines if you can’t afford it. Just one activated might not get you many wins but you can still get in the bonus round. Triggering the bonus round sees you playing with just the five free spins but all the girl symbols suddenly become wild. That can really get you some decent wins. You’ll be really unlucky if each of the free spins doesn’t get you a win.
Roller Derby may not be that popular in the UK but this game will be. It’s another hit from Microgaming and the bonus game with the additional wilds can supply you with some good wins. Definitely recommended.
