RTG released three new slots in their Real Series today and theseÂ are now at [Club USA] and [iNetBet]. “Green Light“, “Incan Goddess” and “Tally Ho“Â (a different theme to the Microgaming slot of the same name) all follow the Real Series format of being 20 line slots, “Fruit Frenzy” being the exception to the rule, with random jackpots and free spins feature rounds. Here, I take a look at the new 3 slots and provide brief reviews on each.
When you get 3 or more scattered “green lights” you get to pick a car in a race. Where the car is placed determines how many free spins you get, up to a maximum of 25. Just tried this in test mode and got 15 spins with a retrigger of 20. The only thingÂ Â Â Â is, if you get 3 scatters, you are not guaranteed 3 green lights: they could flash red, which is disappointing. That aside, this looks pretty decent and I had a good hit in the bonus round, even if was only Fun Play. If your car finishes 1st or 2nd in the race for free spins, you get a second race that provides a kicker of up to 100x too.
This one has two features. Firstly, if you get 5-of-a-kind, you get a “no-lose” double or nothing feature where you pick “red” or “black” and if lucky you double the win. If not, you keep the original win. Once again, 3 scattered “Temples” trigger 25 free spins andÂ I hit for 100x my bet when I got it. The symbols look a bit meek IMO, but the free double-up feature is a neat touch, although this will obviously be taken into account on the expected return (95% at Club USA as I write).
Tally Ho, rather than being another horsey slot like Derby Dollars is in fact based around a British World War theme, with sounds and graphics to match the era. More free spins on the scatters and a wild symbol, it’s standard Real Series stuff. The scatter symbol is a “target” (see picture) and there is a Wild symbol on each reel doubling all wins. Not sure about the graphics on this one…may take some getting used to!
The Real Series slots can be tough cookies to crack, with the real rewards coming from the often large random jackpots or the free spins sessions, but new options are always welcome. Can’t see these three really challenging for Top Online Slot of 2007, but they make a welcome addition to RTG’s Real Series.
If you low-roll and like regular bonuses (with wagering requirements and 10x cashout restrictions), play these slots at [Club USA]. If you play slightly higher wagersÂ try them out at [iNetBet] where you’ll get less bonuses but less restrictions and faster payouts.
