Fortune Games® Slots Review of Bushtucker Bonanza Slot Game
There are 15 fixed paylines in Bushtucker Prizes, an innovative slot from Slot Factory with a theme related to bugs. This game features five reels, three rows, and 15 fixed paylines. In addition to offering a fantastic free spins round, the game also has a unique Wild Trials bonus round.
In addition to playing card symbols like A, K, Q, and J, there are also eight regular symbols on the reels: a grub, a spider, a flying bug, and a cockroach. As well as these, the game has a bushtucker prize symbol, a mega reel symbol, and a wild symbol that replaces all but the free spins and mini-game symbols. In addition, a ‘Free Spins’ symbol awards free spins.
Soundtrack, graphics, and theme
We see several not so inviting bugs here, including a spider, grub, and cockroach, which all look less than friendly. Bushtucker Prizes has a bug theme going on, along with the implication that these little critters will be used in bushtucker trials.
The graphics are excellent and there is plenty of colorful imagery for you to enjoy - if you are a fan of bugs, that is.
There are undertones of a didgeridoo and jungle drum beats, alluding to the Australian Outback. The sound effects include some critters buzzing when a winning combination is formed.
RTP and Variance of Bushtucker Prizes
Bushtucker Prizes is estimated to have a theoretical return to player value of 93.96%, which is below what is considered to be average. In terms of variance, we’d say that this slot is quite high variance, offering higher payouts that don't come around as often as they do in a medium- or low-variance slot.
Bushtucker Prizes: How To Play
Follow these simple steps to get started:
The paytable prizes can be viewed by clicking the hamburger menu icon at the bottom right, then clicking 'Paytable'.
You can view the 15 paylines by scrolling to the right.
You can turn off the audio by clicking the 'Sound' toggle just above the paytable.
Press the 'Bet' button at the bottom left and select your preferred stake level. Pay close attention to the 'Total Bet' amount, as that is how much you are wagering per line.
Select the 'Auto play' option beneath the bet configuration options if you wish to use auto-play.
The round start arrow button can be found on the right side of the gameboard for those who prefer to spin manually.
When the fun stops, you should always walk away. Our self-exclusion and timeout features are there to help, but you must always remember to gamble responsibly.
Paytable Wins & Bet Sizes
With a minimum bet level of 0.15 and a maximum total bet level of 300.00, this slot is very versatile and can be played by a wide range of players.
As shown in the paytable, the multiplier prize value is shown for every symbol. Some of the top paytable wins include:
-250x from Bushtucker Prizes
-250x from Wilds
-200x from Grubs
A player must match three, four, or five matching symbols on a payline to win. Since the slot pays only left to right, adjacent matching symbols must begin from the leftmost position.
Features of Bushtucker Prizes
Players can get five free spins when they land three or more Free Spins symbols on the reels. This bonus round is accessed if players land three or more Free Spins symbols on the reels. During the free spins, players can collect stars to fill up a meter on the right side of the board. Each free spin can grant up to five stars, and with each extra star collected, the multiplier increases. By accumulating enough stars, players may be able to access the Enhanced feature. This feature offers more potential prizes.
A Wild Trials bonus round is also included, which is triggered when three or more Mega Reels symbols are landed during the base game. The mini-game will use a 3x3 grid and will automatically multiply the payouts by 2x. Symbols you can win on in this mini-game include red 7s with an x150 multiplier, green 7s with x50 and blue 7s with x25, and there’s also a gold wild that’ll substitute for them all.
Review of the Bushtucker Prizes
The Wild Trails Bonus round, for example, was one of the great bonus features in Bushtucker Prizes.
We liked the bugs' faces, as they seemed quite horrified themselves at being a part of the trials. The graphics and audio are of top quality and make the game even more enjoyable.
Although there were plenty of bonus features to enjoy, the game rules were straightforward and well explained. We didn’t like the volatility of the game and the fact that the paylines weren’t configurable. A game with 1024 paylines called Bomb Blaster from Slot Factory might appeal to players.
