Dice and Roll, by Euro Games Technology, may be a 5-reel video slot designed specifically to be played on mobile platforms such as Window's phones, but it is retro at heart with its classic fruit machine theme. Things are kept relatively simple on the bonus front too, with nothing fancier than a stretching wild symbol and a basic scatter icon. That means that there are no gimmicks or free spins to be had, which might be a turn off for spinners who are used to big gameplay features.
Even so, there is a double or nothing gamble game and grand jackpot prize of 40,000 credits up for grabs in the main 10-payline game. Plus, this slot features the standard “Jackpot Cards” side game, which offers a mystery jackpot reward to randomly selected players.
Even though this slot machine takes after the vintage fruit machine style, it still boasts the level of graphics that you would expect to find with any good video slot. As such, the fruit symbols are bright, bold and deliciously lifelike in appearance. All the iconic fruits are included in the cocktail of symbols such as ripe red cherries, juicy lemons and oranges, plump plums, mouthwatering watermelons and divine grapes. There are also some other symbols from the retro archives such as a golden bell icon and a lucky number 7. The game's scatter icon is a star and the wild symbol is depicted by a set of red dice.
Dice and Roll by EGT brings that arcade machine vibe to players' portable screens thanks to some specially tailored game controls that can be tapped into action. As part of the “Touch” series by Euro Games Technology, players will have to use their thumbs and fingers to determine their bets. Well, there isn't really much to it in truth because the 10 paylines are actually fixed and therefore cannot be altered. This means that players only have five wagering options to choose from – 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200 – which is a somewhat limited range, especially if you want to play incredibly conservatively or adventurously.
The biggest jackpot of all is awarded by the scattering star symbol, which will multiply all total bets by 200x. So you could potentially turn a maximum total bet of 200 credits into 40,000 if you find five stars. Plus, these icons don't have to line up on any of the 10 paylines to pay out a prize. All other icons reward a multiplier to the value of the bet per winning line, therefore offering significantly lower prizes. For example, five dice icons in a row will pay 15,000 credits with a maximum bet, while lucky 7s will pay 7,000 and five matching bells will ring to the tune of 4,000. The juiciest win offered by the fruits is 2,000 credits which will be paid when five grapes or watermelons align. All other fruit symbols will pay 1,000 for five of a kind.
This slot machine doesn't offer any huge gimmicks to its spinners, but it isn't completely bereft of any bonus action. That is because there is a special wild symbol – the dice. This wild icon will appear on all reels and will substitute for all icons apart from the scattering star. When it pops up on the reels every adjacent reel symbol in each direction will be transformed into a wild to significantly boost opportunities for winning combinations and keep the prizes rolling in!
With only 10 paylines and a relatively low set of payout values, punters will have to make the most of every win. Luckily, Dice and Roll offers the chance to double up all wins which weigh is at less than 35x the total bet with a simple 50/50 gamble game. It's as easy as guessing the correct colour of a turned over playing card, but have you got the guts to go for the gamble when an incorrect guess could result in losing the winnings from the last spin?
Lucky spinners will be able to go for even bigger jackpots thanks to the special bonus game from EGT called “Jackpot Cards”. This side game is activated completely at random, taking players to a screen with 12 turned over cards. Turn over three matching suits to win the corresponding prize from the rolling jackpots at the top of the game screen.
There are loads of slot machines which offer the same visual graphics and range of symbols as this game does, which means that it is unlikely to instantly grab the eyes of a browsing spinner. However, if you do happen to come across this EGT slot machine on your travels, then it is certainly worth a go with its expanding wild symbols and stock bonus round which offers up the chance to win some big progressive prizes.
