Austin Powers slot - Free Play - Game Review
Austin Powers is probably one of the most famous and likeable film characters of the 20th Century, and his witty humour, salacious comebacks, and downright risqué conversation makes him a loveable figure, to both teens, and adults, alike.
As we’ve seen with some big-hit films in the past (including the Marvel series), combining a movie theme into a video slot is a win-win, as it offers the online casinos tremendous publicity… and it offers players an exciting and realistic experience, as they get to play alongside their favourite characters.
Now, Blueprint Gaming designed Austin Powers slot around their ‘classic’ game design setup, which consists of 5 reels, and 25 pay-lines, and the minimum spin is set at just 25p, allowing players on all types of casino budget to get in on the action!
The game features many different characters from the popular Austin Powers film, and you’ll see Dr. Evil, Felicity Shagwell (otherwise known in real life as Heather Graham), along with more – the lower-paying symbols taking the form of traditional playing card symbols, including Ten, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace.
The game features a strong 1960’s theme to it, which is demonstrated by the music, the graphics, and the general ambience of the game.
While the base-game can deliver decent payouts, the bonuses and features is what the games really about, and you’ll find there are three randomly-triggered bonuses in the base game.
The first is the “Sharks with Frickin’ Laser Beams” feature, and when this is triggered, you’ll see a door open, and a swimming pool of sharks will appear. The sharks then shoot between one, and five reels totally wild.
The second randomly-triggered feature is the Dr. Evil Big Win bonus, and here, Dr. Evil can nudge the reels up and down, to ensure a big win.
The third and final randomly-triggered base-game feature is the Mojo Wilds feature, and if this lands, you’ll see a vial of Mojo land on the reels, covering adjacent symbols with the Mojo (one of higher-paying symbols within the game.)
The main bonus, however, is a free-spins round, and this is triggered by landing 3 of the bonus symbols. You’ll then get to pick from one of four bonuses, all of which can deliver great wins!
Austin Powers is now fully optimised for mobile devices, so you can enjoy the action from your phone, and tablet!
Pros: Well-made, exciting, and lots of bonuses – just what you want in a slot!
Cons: The game’s a little old now, so it’d be nice to see Blueprint Gaming give it a bit of a facelift!
