Preview of Side Winder Slot: A New Just For The Win Game
The Sidewinder slot is the newest title scheduled for release on Sept. 12th, 2018 by the Just For The Win game studio located in Stockholm, Sweden.
5 reels in the 3-5-5-5-3 format paves the way for 243 ways to win, and the Sidewinder feature which can expand the way wins up to 1125 with horizontal reels. Although the slot is top notch in terms of what to expect from modern real money games, the classical casino symbols such as bells, bars, horseshoes and the ever so popular, deep red-colored 7’s adds a bit of retro to it.
Couple this with the free spin feature and you have a perfectly good reason to start killing some time.
Sidewinder is not going on a special feature-bonanza. It does however have two distinct ones; The Sidewinder feature, and the free spins feature. The first being the one that enhances the way wins from 243 up to 1125, the latter one being an always popular feature as it gives you free shots at winning big.
Just For The Win’s Sidewinder slot comes with two horizontal reels. One placed at the top, and one at the bottom. When landing a wild symbol with a top / bottom symbol pointing towards either of the horizontal reels, it activates the corresponding reel. 1 activated reel increases the way wins from 243 to 576, and two of them increases it to 1125!
If you get a Sidewinder symbol on reel 2 and 4, both the horizontal reels activates. The first Sidewinder symbol sticks, and the horizontal reels start moving, looking to add more Sidewinder symbols.
- 3 symbols awards 6 free spins
- 4 symbols awards 10 free spins
During the free spins feature all spins are played with 1125 ways to win, and you’ll get both Wild and Sidewinder symbols on the horizontal reels.
You’ll be awarded extra free spins if a Wild symbol lands on the same position on both of the horizontal reels. Also, when doing so, these wilds connect and expand to the whole reel.
Our thoughts on Sidewinder Slot
The design of the Sidewinder online slot is solid, and gives an overall good impression. If you have a soft spot for retro-looking games with a modern twist to the classic slot mechanics, then you’ll appreciate this game (as do i).
The Sidewinder feature is not something that’ll boggle your mind, but it does add to the excitement. It goes without saying that triggering the feature and increasing your winning chances from 243 to 1125 will change your pupils into (insert currency sign character here). There is potential for big wins, which means it’ll be worth the time and stake spent once the whole screen goes bonkers and rewards your handsomely.
On a side note, every game from this game studio has been fun to try so far, and Sidewinder is no exception. After all, the company’s name isn’t random; those behind it design and create games for the same reason people play them – just for the win!
