Stage 888 slot - Free Play - Game Review
Stage 888 is a 5 reel, 20 pay line video slot from Red Tiger Gaming, and the game centres all around a TV Talent Show – although it’s not one you’ll recognise!
That’s because it’s a fictional creation, and while some players may find it disappointing not to play along with real life TV personalities, Stage 888 does a fantastic job of creating a unique and exciting atmosphere, and with a ton of bonuses in the game, there’s never a dull moment playing!
In terms of the symbols shown on the reels, you’ll see the classic lower-value playing card symbols, such as Ace, King, Queen, Jack, and Ten, alongside the game specific symbols high-paying symbols, which includes a Microphone, the 888 Symbol, and the Wild Symbol, which is an expanding woman.
There’s a whopping size features in total, with four being “base-game” triggered; this means they can appear at any time, and don’t require you to land any scatter symbols or bonus symbols to trigger it. The randomly-activated base game features are shown below:
Nudge Feature – When this lands, the reels simply move up or down, creating a winning pay line combination.
Magic Reels – When the Magic Reels feature lands, all the traditional playing card symbols, including 10, J (Jack), Q (Queen), K (King), and A (Ace) are removed from the reels, meaning you have one full spin with JUST the high-paying symbols!
Instant Win – If you see a Musical Note appear, you will be prompted to click it – this then awards a random cash prize, up to a total of 80X your stake.
Now, the following features are triggered by getting scatter symbols/bonus symbols, and generally, they’re the ones you’ll want to aim for.
Mike Bonus Features – Land three microphones on the reels (anywhere in view), and you’ll trigger this feature. When you’ve landed it, you’ll be prompted to pick one of three golden icons that appear on your screen, and this will award a cash bonus, with the chance to continue picking.
Stage Bonus Feature – The Stage Bonus Feature is the most generous of the bonusses, and is triggered by landing three of the stage bonus scatter symbols anywhere in view.
When you land the bonus, you simply watch the metre on your screen rise, and hope it gets to the top – there’s a top prize of 888X available here!
