Quick Shot Slot Machine

The latest new casino game from WMS and Bally isn’t actually a game in its own right per se, but more of a new way of linking progressive jackpots to existing games which are going to be re-released on the new WMS Twinstar cabinet. That said, to showcase ‘Quickshot’ there is a new title, Duanwu, which is being displayed purely for this new mechanic.

If you have played any of WMS or Bally’s existing ‘Fu’ themed Asian slot games such as the 88 Fortunes slot or the Good Fortune slot and are a fan of the Fu babies – they are back in force on this game and actually feature on the games control console as a form of Easter Egg – they giggle when tickled. I’ve always personally found them a little unnerving and the new mechanic a little creepy, but that could just be me!

Theme & Gameplay

Duanwu follows a very similar pattern to the other modern WMS Asian slot games and shares many of the same features, indeed some of the icons appear to be have been copied straight from other slots for use in this game, especially the magic lantern wild symbol. The new cabinet does show off the developer’s graphic skills very well and it’s stunningly vibrant in high definition. The audio is a little improved though they do need to move away from the classic casino slots sound effects in our humble slot player opinion.

Features

The big draw of this game and all future Quick Shot games to follow is the new progressive jackpot mechanic. Whilst you can win one of the five jackpots on offer in a standard way, with three or more of the jade scatter icons, to rack up multiple jackpot wins you will need to put together specific five of a kind symbol combinations.

You heard it here first – WMS have completely changed how a slot game works on this title, instead of 5 of a kind being the biggest win for any given symbol, these combinations now unlock one of the progressive jackpots. The astute will immediately realise, that on a 5x3 reel game like this, with no less than 50 pay-lines, its suddenly feasible for many jackpots to be rewarded on the same spin.

Summary

By shifting the focus away from traditional symbol wins and focusing purely on trying to hit jackpots, albeit with a much bigger hit ratio, WMS are definitely breaking the mould. The extra variance and anticipation will definitely appeal to higher stakes game players, we just aren’t sure the casual gamer will be so enthusiastic. Either way the development of the new cabinet won’t be wasted, as the exciting Zeus mobile slot game (In an interesting reverse of normal game development) is going to be released as a land based casino slot on Twinstar at some point very soon!
