I'd never seen this game available on-line until the other day, it turns out it's not all that rare now I've actually looked into it but I did previously think this was a land casino only game. I've had a couple of big hits on the game in my local Grosvenor Casino in the past few years so I was definitely excited to give the on-line version a try.

I was attracted to this game in the casino when I saw another player in the bonus round with a bunch of locked wilds on screen and random multipliers up to 10x being awarded at the end of every spin. I figured the game must have some huge big win potential and jumped right on after watching that player cash out £2500 from a £3.00 bet. Of course it took quite a while before I managed to experience the same combination of features that player scored, in fact I think it was several trips to the casino later but I did eventually manage to get all five locked wilds during the free spins which not only awards a tonne of big wins but also doubles your final total at the end of the bonus round!
It can be quite hard to get the free spins as you need to first catch the bonus symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5, then you need to pick at least three of the right symbols out of just five picks. To get the maximum number of locked wilds too you need a lot of luck with 10 free spins although if you manage to get the maximum 15 then your in with a reasonable chance.

There are 30 fixed paylines and also a bonus bet that has to be played on every spin doubling the minimum stake to 0.60 per spin. I really don't like this and would prefer IGT had built their paytable taking into account the additional features, but at least the features offered do give you a sense that they are worth a little extra investment.

The graphics do look a bit cheesy to me, it's kind of hard to explain but I guess I never think photos of people look that great as symbols on the reels. The animation is a little bit choppy as well and could certainly have benefited from a few extra frames.
