License to Spin is a James Bond theme slot by Arrows Edge. This exciting game transports players to the world of 007 with evocative music and colourful symbols including cocktail glasses, yachts and baddies!
This spy game is set out on a 3x3 grid while the special features here include wild symbols, scatters, bonus game and 2 progressive jackpots. This game is ideal for fans of the spy genre and those who enjoy James Bond movies, while the simple graphics and multiple features is sure to keep the gameplay entertaining.
The Bond theme is apparent right away as soon as the game loads with the mysterious music which reminds us very much of the 007 films! The symbols in the game are all related to goodies and baddies, spying and the high life. Icons include our James Bond hero, a revolver, martini glass, sports car, yacht, woman holding a cocktail glass, and two baddies – one with an eye patches and the other wearing round glasses.
The colours are bright and fun with clear graphics, while the background is a city scene. The James Bond character sometimes stands to the right of the reels and occasionally the weather changes and you get a downpour! These details all make the game more fun and really give it a unique feel.
License to Spin only has 3 reels, each with 3 rows of symbols and 3 fixed paylines, giving it a simple vibe. You can raise and lower your stake from a minimum of 0.30 to a maximum of 240 per spin. It is also possible to play up to 50 spins automatically, while the ‘max bet’ button bet the maximum quickly and easily.
The payouts in this game are not very high with the best paying symbol being the woman with the cocktail glass, who pays up to 1000 coins for 3 matching symbols on a payline. The second-best regular symbol is the baddie with the eye-patch who pays up to 60 coins for e matches, while the baddie with the glasses pays up to 50 for 3 matching symbols. The car and yacht pay up to 30 coins, the revolver pays up to 20 coins and the martini glass pays up to 15 coins. There are also card suit symbols to award the lower payouts.
The James Bond character is the wild symbol in this game, standing in for all the other icons. This is actually a ‘walking wild’ which means, when it appears, it stays for 3 re-spins and walks across the screen onto each adjacent reel.
After the second re-spin the character turns and shoots to reward you with a special feature. This could be the Shaken not Stirred bonus round or a set of 3 new re-spins featuring more walking wild symbols.
If you trigger this bonus round during the re-spin feature, James Bond parachutes down and you are taken to a new screen with a woman mixing cocktails. You have to pick one of 2 cocktails to receive a bonus cash prize. You get to change your mind after the first prize is revealed for the chance to take the other cocktail – but you only get to change your mind once!
There are two progressive jackpots in this game, the smaller Cash Grab jackpot and the huge Super Slots jackpot which could award you with tens of thousands of pounds!
This fun slot game has lots of great features to keep gameplay exciting throughout the spy adventure! There are some simple but great graphics. The James Bond character walks onto the side of the screen and produces martini glasses and guns from his pocket, which really adds to the humour and the atmosphere. The ‘walking wild’ appears all the time to make up for the lower payouts from the regular symbols.
We liked the bonus round for a quick cash boost while the graphical interludes of the parachute and rainfall added to the fun.
Overall, this is a great game for fans of spy films, while the progressive jackpots mean there is always the potential for a massive pay day.
