The black and white series of games from Bally are one of their most popular mechanical reel slot games of all time in the land casino floor. With their parent company SG Interactive expanding into pure free to play social media gaming, some of those games are now being converted and one of the first is the new Double Jackpot Black & White slot game.
This latest game in Bally’s classic reel collection is a truly authentic stepper style slot, with just a single pay-line and 3 reels and old school classic graphics and layout. Reel shakes, slot buttons, nudges and holds all give the impression of a traditional casino 3 reeler. The game will be fully optimised for play on your mobile device so this will make a great time killer on the commute to work or during that boring office meeting!
Unlike modern video slot titles the 3 reel game is always almost exclusively aimed at the veteran slot player of years gone by, or those seeking a little retro gaming fix. The new Double Jackpot Black & White slot game may look dated in construction, but the sound effects, graphics and reel effects are bang up to date and razor sharp, this is retro in its best form.
There are but five symbols on the pay-table, which is displayed above the reels as it would be on a physical machine, with three coloured sevens, bars and the double jackpot game logo for you to try and line up on the spinning reels of this old world fruit machine, complete with the noise and hubbub you would expect the machine to make in real life.
With only 3 reels and one pay-line available, game setup couldn’t really me much easier, simply select a bet size comfortable for your bank roll and hopefully watch the credit wins spin in on the LED red display which shows your current balance and bet level.
Three mixed sevens pay out the least at 20x your bet, three white grant 40x, three black gets x100 and if you can land the rarest of 7 combinations – three reds, you can win a monster 200x your bet. Random nudges and holds crop up to help you on your way.
The Double Jackpot feature is lurking in the background to offer a range of 2000x and one single 10000x prize to the lucky winner for matching symbols. There is also a win multiplier available if you match only 2x of the jackpot symbols rather than all three, so narrowly missing out on a jackpot still gives some form of reward which is a nice consolation prize to have.
Three reel machines come in two forms, those which add something to the genre and those that don’t. The new game from Bally manages to fit firmly in the former category with a really authentic retro feel, decent payouts and the great accessibility offered as a free play slot, in fact, we rather wish they had offered this as a reel money game also! Sure to be a favourite at casinos around the world online and in social media sites such as FaceBook, we think players at US casinos will particularly enjoy the fact they can now play a classic Bally slot online with everyone else!
