Fortune Games® Slots Review of Bucksy Malone Slot Game
Come on over to the speakeasy for a little 'under-the-counter' drinking session and enjoy the atmosphere that comes with the speakeasy. The party Bucksy and his crew are throwing is going to be quite a party, so you should not be late. It may be Prohibition, but when it comes down to this 1920s world of whiskey and gun-running gangsters, the only rules that matter are those of the gangsters themselves.
You will soon be working for Bucksy, selling his illegal booze on the black market. Although it was illegal to make, move, sell or consume alcohol during the Prohibition period, that didn't deter this busy gangster, whose lifestyle and shady moves were so cleverly depicted in one of our favourite slots during that era.
As Bucksy Malone was designed to work equally well on all screens, you will be able to play without compromising on quality whether you are at home or on the road.
The graphics and the soundtrack of the game
From the opening shot of the cityscape, glittering with lights, to the cartoon-like symbols, the visuals have a distinctive quality that makes them stand out. There's something comically sinister about Bucksy's sidekicks, and the animation adds a nice touch to the whole thing. The wolf whistle was a big hit with us, and so was the pretty lady who was directing the sound to her!
There is a jazz-inspired background music playing throughout the game, as well as sassy short bursts of music to bring out the winning lines as they appear.
RTP and volatility for Bucksy Malone
There is a disappointing return to player rate of 91.8%, though to be honest, we didn't find it to be especially unprofitable when it came to wins, possibly due to its comparatively high level of 'medium volatility'.
Bucksy Malone - How To Play It
The process of getting started is very simple.
1. Click the button with three horizontal lines (top right) to access set up tools.
2. On the ‘bet’ tab use the plus and minus buttons to choose the coin size, the number of coins per line and how many lines you want to play.
3. If appropriate click on the autoplay tab and set it to play from five to 50 times.
4. Lastly, fix the volume level for both music and sound effects under the ‘options’ tab.
5. It’s time to spin and enjoy.
Bonus Features of Bucksy Malone
There are a lot of bonus options on this slot, and all of them include a scatter symbol or a wild symbol, which is great to see in a slot game.
Wild and random
It is important to note that, as the name suggests, this symbol appears only during base games. Throughout the card you will be entertained by the fact that a symbol is being peppered with gunshot to spell out the word WILD and make it look wild.
Feature on the Whiskey Run
You need to land at least three Bucksy Malone Scatter symbols on the reels in order to trigger this bonus. Each winner will have the opportunity to pick three barrels out of the six that are on display. While it is not possible to keep the liquor you do receive a coin value along with each cask. Because it's totally random, you're in with a chance of making some serious money if you're lucky.
Free Spins are one of the features of the game
The hit man is the scatter in this slot game, and 3 or more of them together trigger the 'free spins' feature when three or more appear together. Aside from getting ten free spins on the reels, you will also receive a multiplier feature worth either 2x, 3x or 5x, depending on the multiplier you select. There is only one slight downside to this section and that is the fact that there is no possibility of retriggering the free spins.
Don't let your winnings go to waste
When you've had a lucky day spinning the reels, Bucksy offers you the chance to boost what you have won in a game of chance if you're feeling lucky. A suitcase with playing cards inside is revealed when you choose 'gamble' (there is a button right next to the reels) and the suitcase is revealed. You will be tasked with the task of predicting either the suit or the colour of the next card that is about to be turned. When you're successful, you're rewarded with coins that you can keep or reject and gamble again for a bigger prize if you're unsuccessful.
Here is our verdict on the matter
Bucksy Malone does not only meet the spec for every aspect of a regular slot, but it also adds something extra special on top of everything else to make it something special. I think it is fair to say that the visuals and sounds create a truly atmospheric experience - so real that we can easily slip back in time and feel like we are actually a part of a high-powered world of glamour and high power.
