Fancy a pint? London Pub is a uniquely designed 4-reel slot machine by Kajot software which has 81 ways to win and nifty little bonus game to multiply your wins. The theme incorporates a few timeless classics from the slot machine format while presenting some much needed alcoholic refreshment, all in the name of the good old British pub. So, if you room starts spinning, then it's not because you've had too much to drink, but it might be because you've spun up some seriously big wins with this slot machine.
Nothing quite beats a British pub. A place for relaxation, good natured banter, strange stories and, of course, some much needed alcoholic therapy. London Pub is a simple 4-reel slot machine that encapsulates all of the charm and character of the British drinking house with a dark and musty aesthetic that is adorned with some gold around the edges, thanks to a black floral wallpaper upon which four gilded reels are presented. Some of the symbols upon these reels are taken from the vintage slot machine archive with green 7s, red 7s, double BARs and Triple BARs, but there are also many other icons which are iconic to the pub environment. There is a foamy pint of stout, a dram of whiskey, a smoking pipe, a clock and a golden bell for ringing last orders.
All in all, this game has a very pleasing aesthetic. Because although the game isn't as bright and bold as the majority of other novelty slot machines out there such as Kajots own Kareoke King slot, it manages to capture the understated elegance of a traditional British drinking establishment – and we can't complain about that.
A real life London Pub might set you back a small fortune if you wanted to order a pint or two, but this game offers a decent range of wagering options for casual spinners and big time spinners alike. These stakes are 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1,000 credits, with each credit being equal to €0.01. As for the other variable factors in this pub themed slot machine, there aren't any – after all, it's not a cocktail themed game!
The reason for this is because the game doesn't have any particular paylines, as such. Instead, players simply have to find a matching icon on each of the four reels to make a winning sequence and get a winning prize. Such an event will result in a multiplier value being awarded to the total bet, the size of which depends on the symbol that makes up the combination. If players were to find four “Black Beer” or “Golden Whiskey” icons across the reels, then they will be rewarded with a 1x multiplier to simply return the stake that was placed on the spin. Four smoking pipes, on the other hand will pay a 2x prize while double BAR, triple BAR and clock symbols all award 4x multipliers. Going up in value still and spinners will be rewarded with a 20x prize for finding four green or red 7 icons. But the biggest win of all is an 80x prize that is paid when four golden bells appear on adjacent reels.
This game doesn't boast much in the way of special bonus features. There are no wild symbols, no scatters, no free spins and no silly side game gimmicks. Just like a proper pub, the procedure is strictly no-nonsense. However, there is one special element to London Pub that will help players boost their winnings – a “Bonus Time” multiplier. This feature is triggered whenever a row of four clock symbols align on the central horizontal plane across the 4 reels. Once activated, a clock with one spinning hand will appear and players simply have to stop the hand to reveal a multiplier from 1x to 12x which will be applied to their previous win.
That bonus multiplier round won't come around with every winning spin, but London Pub does have a 50/50 gamble feature that is offered after every win. This dice themed gamble gives punters the chance to double their wins by correctly guessing whether the dice will land of red or black. Players can keep on gambling until they make an incorrect guess, in which case all of the winnings will be wiped. Keep an eye out for the blue side of the dice, because this will safeguard the current gamble stake to add some insurance going into the subsequent spins.
This slot machine offers a decent blend of no-nonsense gameplay as a flash compatible slot with a unique pub style theme. Of course, the aesthetic of the game won't be for everyone since many players would prefer a game filled with colour and exciting graphics. However, this game has a certain charm about it with a nostalgic pub vibe and a simple bonus multiplier which could multiply your wins by 12x. And if you do end up winning big, you're definitely buying the next round!
