Grand Slam Slot Machine
Five-reel slot machines rarely get any more retro than this. Grand Slam is a classically themed game from Novomatic which hosts a delicious fruit cocktail of timeless game symbols. It may be a little bit on the basic side to look at, and there aren’t any huge bonus side games to play either on this 9-payline game. However, this slot doesn’t need any of that extra gameplay nonsense because it oozes plenty traditional charm. Plus, these simple spins could land you with a 2,000,000 credit jackpot – which is a very tasty prospect on this real money pokie. What’s more, there is also a mystery win feature, just to keep spinners on their toes.
Visually, the game reflects its basic gameplay with some rudimentary game symbols which do look a bit childish and cartoon-like. This could obviously be a big deterrent for many retro slot machine fans. The truth is that when a slot doesn’t rely on extra gameplay features, it has to make an extra effort to sell itself with good quality graphics. Unfortunately, Grand Slam doesn’t really deliver in this department nor does it reflect the sporty theme of its title.
A Juicy Jackpot
Grand Slam does, however, deliver when it comes to offering some tantalising betting action. That is no more evident in the fact that the game’s grand jackpot is a very attractive 2,000,000 credits. This can be won if players find 5 bell symbols lined up on one of the 9 paylines after placing the maximum bet of 10,000.
All bets must be equal to or larger than the minimum wager of 40, which is a standard low-end cap for many Novomatic games. Another thing to take into consideration is the fact that all 9 paylines are permanently fixed in position – all of which can be seen in the handy diagrams that are shown beneath the reels.
Line Up Those Fruits
Grand Slam gets its retro charm thanks to a number of timeless arcade style game symbols; you will find a whole fruit bowl of iconic symbols such as cherries, lemons, grapes and more. Incidentally, cherries and oranges are the least lucrative fruits to line up, since five of them will only multiply your bet by 10x. Lemons, plums and strawberries, on the other hand, will offer some more bucks for your bets. Five in a row will multiply your bet by 25x. The next tier of game symbols will multiply bets by 50x and it includes a four leaf clover, a bunch of grapes and a mouth-watering watermelon. You will be ringing with excitement if you find five bells, because this will multiply your bet by 200x.
