The lottery is old hat, right? You know the drill - you pick your numbers, wait for yours to come up (they don’t) and then that’s it. No big money prizes for you. Well Gamevy, a relatively new gaming company, has released Spinlotto to challenge that notion.
It is said to be the first online slot of its kind, and in a lot of ways it certainly seems correct: picking your own set of winning icons isn’t common in slot machines, not to mention being able to set your multiplier. The only conventional element of the title is its 3x5 grid, for even it’s jackpot is out of the originary at a whopping 250,000 credits, which lets face it, you don’t see on a slot machine at the best of times.
Our review has been created to help you navigate the tricky lotto terrain, after all when something deviates from its norm it’s good to know what you’re up against. Nobody wants to be beaten by those numbers, and hopefully by taking a closer look you won’t have to suffer that embarrassing fate.
Getting started is a lot easier than you’d think, though it’ll definitely help if you’ve played a range of slots before. Still, choosing the winning numbers is a great innovation that helps to capture that lottery spirit (hopefully not the disappointment at them not coming up). As normal you pick five normal balls and then a bonus number, which in this case is known as the star booster.
With your special numbers you can select between 1 and 49, and you’ll only need at least two of them to match for a win to present itself. Then you move along to your star figure which will range from 1 to 15. The beauty of this shining beacon is that it has two features to it: it can either add a bonus onto your total or it can make even a single match a winning combination.
Actually winning is a lot more complicated though, for there is the added confusion of repeat numbers also granting you some cash prizes. What this means is if you decide that 11 is one of your balls and it comes up several times on the reels, you’ll get money, though the kitty won’t be as satisfying as matching up most of the lucky numbers you have chosen.
Spinlotto has three huge piles of coins to get your mitts on, with each of them heralding in an amount that anyone would be happy to call their own.
Normal Jackpot - In this case you can have any five of the lucky numbers, even repeats and then your star booster for you to win a x10,000 reward.
Mega Jackpot - Here you need to get all your numbers but without any repetition this time, and of course that star needs to turn up. If it does, welcome an amazing x100,000 credits into your account.
SPINLOTTO Ultra Jackpot - You know things are getting serious if the name is in the title! When you get all of your balls in ascending order, without repeats, and alongside the star booster you selected you will get a massive (and rather hard to believe but boy it’s real) x1,000,000.
You should be, so let's get down to business and figure out what bet needs to go where for you to get started - nobody wants to stick to demo rounds when you can enjoy such hefty rewards.
There are 10 paylines at work here, which aren’t fixed and therefore can be changed to suit your cash flow. Once you’ve figured that out, you can place a stake from 0.10 up to a 1.00 increase, meaning that a 0.10 bet along all 10 lines will give you an initial 1.00 bet overall. On top of this, there is a star booster widget to the side of the controls at the bottom of the screen, which will allow you to set your multiplier; you can crank it up to x20 if you’re looking for tense gaming and dramatic victories.
Moving onto the Autoplay option, when you select it a mini window appears to help you set up all those figures once again, and to input how many spins you want to be played automatically. If you decide to do this clicking ‘okay’ will launch the reels into a spin, but if you’re paying manually just tap the circular arrows to start.
