Once Upon a Dime
|Theme:||Free Spins Feature:||No|
|Slot Type:||Video Slot||Bonus Rounds Feature:||No|
If we had a pound for every video slot that had its name as a pun… we’d have… well, about a quid in total…
And that’s because most game developers choose NOT to name their slots after a pun. Not Section 8 Studios, however! And with Once upon a Dime slot machine, you get the cringe-infested, awkward-just-to-say, and frankly embarrassing pun, right in the name!
OK, so jokes aside, let’s take a look at the slot.
First things first… it’s built using the newer HTML5 format, and this makes it accessible to players on all types of device. So, for example, if you wanted to enjoy the action from your mobile devices, you can – no problem.
In order to play from your mobile devices, you don’t need to download or install any pieces of software, and simply opening up the game from your chosen online casino is enough to get the game rendering to fit your screen size.
Symbols on the reels are made up of the low-value ones (playing card values, including 10, jack, queen, king, and ace), and the high-value ones, which include a variety of characters from the fictitious theme that Section 8 Studios have developed.
Once upon a Dime contains two features. The first is a free-spins bonus, and this is triggered by landing 3, 4, or 5 of the scatter symbols anywhere in view.
Once you do so, you’ll receive a number of free-spins. Landing 3 scatter symbols awards 15 free-spins, while landing 4 or 5 awards 25 or 50 free-spins respectively.
Wins during the free-spins bonus round are multiplied by 2X, and it’s also possible to re-trigger even more spins, by landing yet another 3, 4, or 5 of the scatter symbols anywhere in view.
Now, the second bonus – while not technically a bonus – is a progressive jackpot, and this is randomly awarded on any spin during the base-game or free-spins round.
It’s currently up at just over €500,000 – so it’s a progressive jackpot well-worth playing for – and if you win that kind of money, you can probably just afford to buy your OWN castle!
Pros: Once Upon a Dime’s bonuses and features make the gameplay incredibly intense and exciting – and if you’ve not yet had a chance to play the slot, you’d do well to give it a try for yourself!
Cons: The game is quite volatile, which means you won’t get a huge number of wins.
