Theme and Gameplay
Professional wrestler and film actor Andre Rene Rusimov performed in the ring under various aliases, the most famous of which was the nickname “Andre the Giant”. You have probably guessed by now that he was of gigantic proportions. Andre, who suffered from acromegaly, was two metres and twenty-four centimetres in height and weighed two hundred and forty kilograms. Can you imagine how his rivals felt!
In a video slot Andre the Giant has five reels and twenty-five lines. You can play a slot machine by any number of lines available. Bet on each of them is taken in the range of five cents to five euros, so a spin can be put no more than a hundred and twenty-five euros (using the example of EU Casino).
The symbols on the video slot screen are arranged in three rows. A set of gaming options Andre the Giant consists of special images that have special features, free runs with additional features, the game on the odds, and so on.
Winning combinations in the machine Andre the Giant are consistently located on the active line symbols, which should be at least three or two (depending on species). The combination must start on the first reel. The only exception is Scatter, but it will be discussed below.
The payout is calculated by multiplying the line bet by the combination’s coefficient (up to x5000). For each line only the highest combination is winning.
Symbols and paylines
There are 12 symbols in the Andre the Giant slot machine. Ten images are the main ones and only bring payouts in credits. The first special symbol is the wild. It depicts Andre the Giant, which appears only on the second and fourth reels. When the wild symbol appears on the playing field, it fills its entire reel. It then plays the role of any main image.
The second special symbol is scatter. He gets on all reels and is the logo of the slot in question. First, scatter brings payouts in credits. They equate to 2, 5, 10 and 200 total bets. The amount of winnings depends on the number of logos that appeared on the reels. Secondly, scatter in an amount of three pieces triggers ten free spins. About their features described in a separate paragraph.
Ten main characters are made in a thematic style. They show a variety of objects and participants in the power competitions. Information about the symbols users can find in the Info section. It is located in the bottom left corner. The section has a payout table that lists the multipliers for each picture. They increase the bet per line.
Coefficients of the pictures are different, but many of them in pairs have the same multipliers. Such images include:
• hot dog and fight tickets, which bring 5, 10 and 100 bets per line;
• pairs of boots and green hands, which have multipliers of 8, 20 and 150;
• a mask and a chair, which have multipliers of 15, 30 and 300;
• The ring and gold belt, with combinations that have 20, 40 or 500 bets per line.
The other two symbols have unique multipliers. In addition, the images described below create a winning sequence of two or more. The first such symbol is the referee in the striped shirt. His odds are 2, 25, 100 and 1,000. Maximum among the usual characters prizes are due for pictures with the wrestler in a red mask. They are equal to 3, 100, 1,000 and 5,000 bets per line.
It is worth remembering that all images in Andre the Giant create a prize combination only from left to right, from the reel. The only exception is the slot’s logo.
Freespins and Bonus Game
Free spins in Andre the Giant will start after three scatter symbols appear. During the freespins, the main images, complete with red circles, may appear on the fifth reel. These are Andre the Giant’s moves. They accumulate for the user until the end of the free spins.
After the freespins, if the player has more than one technique in reserve, the bonus game begins. First choose an opponent who will oppose the main character in the slot. Then it is necessary to choose, one by one, each of the techniques that Andre will apply in the ring. His successful attempt will bring the user additional winnings. Otherwise the payout will not increase.
If the player has collected three holds during the free spins, he can convert them into one of the Giant’s crowning attacks. There are two types in total and they are distinguished by their blue and yellow colouring. Using the crown attack is guaranteed to win an additional prize.
