Boulder Bucks Slots

Yabba Dabba Dooo! Seriously the first thing that entered my mind upon playing this caveman themed new online slot game from Barcrest. They don’t label it that way of course but so far as I can see this is a clear as a cartoon slot tribute to the Flintstones as it is possible to get without an official slot tie in.

So far as the game itself goes it is a traditional 5 reel machine, with ten active pay-lines which has been optimised as a mobile slot, as a result it plays well across all devices we tried it on – even on a windows phone. It features Barcrest’s staggered RTP based on bet size and the ‘big bet’ function which is common to their game titles, regular readers will have seen this in my review of Wild Knights Kings Ransom.

Unusually for a Barcrest title, it really does have decent modern 3D graphics and contains not one, but two free spins round bonus features and a separate pick win bonus. There are also prehistoric expanding and sticky wilds roaming around, it will be available free to play as well as cash mode so open for you to try at no risk to the wallet.

Theme and Features

Whist there are many prehistoric Dinosaur themed slots around you don’t see too many caveman games, Barcrest’s game designers have done well here, the backdrop, music, effects and characters are all bang up to date with the latest video slot games, it’s vibrant and fun to watch and listen to.

As mentioned this does featured the staggered RTP system, bets of less than 2.00 credits have an RTP of 94% whilst over 2.00 grants you an increase to 96%. Play the 20.00 credit big bet (5x spins in a row) and you can unlock the Egg pick me bonus with the boulder bucks game symbol on reels 1 and 3 only rather than needing 3 as you do with the small bets, play at 30.00 credits and you can trigger it with two symbols on reels 1, 3 or 5. The game really encourages higher stakes players and rewards them too with increased action.

The pick bonus allows you to choose from one of three dinosaur eggs, with a hidden multiplier lying behind each, though the real bonus draw on the game is the spins round it I still nice to see Barcrest upping the bonus feature options on this latest title.

The spins bonus is the games big draw and falls into three distinct sections, all three of which are triggered by three boulder bucks icons anywhere in view on the reels. The first spin bonus you can choose is the mammoth spins where you get 20 spins, the wild symbol can drop and expand if it appears on any of the three middle reels, replacing the whole reel with wilds.

A second spin bonus option is the Pterodactyl spins, this is only ten spins but the wilds now transfer to the left and transform the adjacent symbol to a wild, less spins maybe but it is easy to see how this wild system could be potentially more rewarding.

Last but not least is the Sabre-Toothed tiger spins, only 6 of them but the wilds get even more valuable, not only will they expand to cover the whole reel if they drop, they are also sticky and will remain in place for the duration of the spins round.

Summary

Barcrest titles seem to be getting better with every release, they are keeping the popular unique aspects they are known for such as the staggered RTP and big bets but are adding in more bonus action and player interaction. This game is fun and friendly to all player levels, well worth a try as a real money slot with all those wilds around!
