Don’t worry, Mr Multiplier isn't one of those benefit scrounging dads with 23 kids – he's a star of the slot game scene who'll multiply your wins in his famous Reaction Bonus, and offer you the chance to win one of 3 Mr Multiplier Jackpots!
Our protagonist is a fun-loving little guy who looks like a cross between a red Pac-Man and one of the stars of the M & M adverts and, talking of sweets, does he have an appetite for sugary stuff. He simply loves cans of cola, boiled sweets, and doughnuts (those really yummy strawberry flavoured ones with the pink frosting and white chocolate sprinkles), which is why he's happy to reward you with some big line-bet multiplying prizes for finding plenty of them all over the reels. Line-up any 3, 4 or 5 combinations of matching symbols and he will reward you with up to 500x your line-bet for the boiled sweets, up to 700x for the yummy doughnuts, and up to 1,000x for cans of cola.
However, Mr Multiplier has also been told by his doctor that he's got to eat more fruit – but that's also great for you as you can collect plenty of smaller wins for lining-up melons, grapes, strawberries and cherries, which have top prizes ranging from 50x to 200x your line-bet.
Where Mr Multiplier actually gets his name from though is his role in his brilliant Reaction Bonus. As well as paying-out for lining-up fruits and sugary delights, each symbol is also surrounded by a coloured circle, and should 5 of these colours line-up on any of the game's 40 pay-lines you'll be awarded a Reaction, and you'll notice that the multiplier on the right of the screen increase to x2. When this happens, all winning symbols will then disappear to be replaced by more symbols. If another Reaction occurs the prize will then be paid at x2, and the multiplier will increase to x3 – and so on!
Mr Multiplier also likes to make an appearance on the reels and, when 3 or more of him appear anywhere on the reels when the reels stop, you'll be awarded 1 of 3 jackpots. 3 x Mr Multiplier awards the Mini Jackpot, 4 awards the Midi Jackpot, and 5 awards the Maxi Jackpot.
The game's reel set-up is different from many games in that it is a 4-3-4-3-4 window formation, but the 40 pay-lines that all players get to enjoy offer loads of ways of winning. How you want to stake these lines depends entirely on what your budget is, and how much you want each win to be multiplied by, and line-bets range from 0.01 coins up to 25 coins – allowing a high-roller spin of 1,000 coins a spin.
The aptly named Big Time Gaming have certainly delivered with a fun protagonist in Mr Multiplier who's so desperate for us to feed him sugar that he'll pay us some decent prizes for finding his favourite treats, and throw-in a fab bonus game, and offer us the chance to win great jackpots – so it must be time to go forth and multiply!
