When it comes to puzzle games that have a massive fan base, Zuma will surely be heard of less often in comparison to other games such as Tetris or the Rubik's Cube. As Zuma was launched relatively recently in 2003, there are a few people who know what it exactly is all about. However, in the past few years, the popularity of Zuma has been picking up and Blueprint Gaming has decided to take it to the next level by introducing a new slots machine game called Zuma Slots.
Zuma Slots machine is an online video game created by Blueprint Gaming which, instead of being the standard three-reel slots game, is a five-reel, twenty payline game. The video game incorporates many of the iconic characters in the original game and replaces the regular slot symbols such as the lemon or the cherry with these characters. The game also uses the same concept of the original Zuma game where the Tiki bosses are the ones that prevent you from going any further. Having said that, in the Zuma Slots game, the Tiki bosses stand in the way of the player achieving the jackpot win. This is definitely a game where players who love to take risks to get maximum benefit.
The first thing that is noticed when a player plays this slot game is that the visual arts and graphics are much better than the original Zuma game. The graphics give the player a lost and dilapidated feeling due to the mysterious ancient temples which form the backdrop of the gameplay. One of the biggest steps that Blueprint Gaming had to take was to ensure that the visual effects of the slot machine would meet the expectations of those who are hard core fans of Zuma. Blueprint Gaming not only managed to meet this expectation, but exceeded it as well as the gameplay is very vivid and it has very impressive video graphics.
The game works on the same concept of a regular slot machine. The player must place a bet of a certain denomination which begins from 1p/1c - £1/$1. The maximum number of coins that can be placed per line is 1. The player then has to press the spin button wherein all the reels will rotate in various combinations. In order to win, the player must get a combination of 3 or more symbols. The symbols that are excluded from getting any points are 9, 10, J, Q and the K.
Another inclusion to the game which is not seen in regular slot machines is that there are wild and scatter symbols that randomly appear on any of the five reels. These symbols give the player the chance to win more prizes and unlock bonus features. The Zuma logo represents the Wild symbol which acts as the multiplier in the game. This means that the wild symbol can be substituted for any of the other combination of symbols to make a more significant winning combo by multiplying it at the same time. The scatter symbol is the only symbol that cannot be substituted by the Zuma logo.
The Scatter symbol is represented by the iconic frog idol and it gives the player a chance to win if there is a combination of three or more symbols on the five reels. If three or more scatter symbols come up on the five reels, the bonus free spin round will be unlocked. One of the other features of the game is the gamble feature. This feature enables players to maximize their winnings up to ten times if they activate it after a winning spin. Once it is activated, the player has to select one out of four reels in which each reel has a specific multiplier to maximize the player's points. This makes it easier for players to earn more when they play more. The game also boasts of a lucrative 95% payout rate which will definitely attract more and more players to have a go at this amazing slots machine game.
