Spin Your Cards Right from PocketWin: Slot Review - good game good game!
Spin Your Cards Right is a game exclusive to play at PocketWin and it is clearly inspired by the classic TV show “Play Your Cards Right”. This TV show was hosted by TV legend Bruce Forsyth as he helped contestants navigate their way through a series of cards by guessing if the card value was higher or lower than the previous card in order to win cash prizes such as holidays and cars. The PocketWin version closely follows the TV show format and even features a toothy host called “Brilliant Bob” who looks very similar to Bruce himself except for one thing, he is sporting a Trump-style toupee!
It is a 5 reel slot game with 20 paylines and comes with Free Spins, a Gamble option, and a Mini-game: Bob’s Bonus.
The first feature to highlight is the Wild symbol and this is illustrated by a crazy looking joker complete with a pair of red shades. It substitutes for all symbols except the Mini-game and Free Spins symbols. It is the highest paying symbol in the game as if you land 5 of these symbols then you will be treated to an unbelievable 2,000X your original bet! One more thing about this symbol is that any combination of the Wild symbol along with the Jackpot symbol that totals 5 symbols results in a wonderful 300X payout.
To trigger the Free Spins game, you need to land 3 Free Spins symbols in any order on an active payline. The Free Spins symbol is represented by the words “Free Spins” with a purple background. It goes without saying that the more Free Spins symbols you land then the more Free Spins you will be awarded. For example, if you manage to land 5 of these symbols then you will be given 9 Free Spins!
The game features an excellent mini-game called “Bob’s Bonus”. To trigger it, you will need to land 2 or more Mini-game symbols in a row on an active payline. The more symbols you land then the higher the multipliers become in the mini-game. This bonus game involves picking cards from a few different options, much like the TV show as you will either receive a win or a spin on a wheel. The wheel offers a few nice options such as letting you pick another card, collect your winnings or even double your winnings. It is possible to win up to 496X your bet in this feature but only if you manage to play your cards right of course!
The last feature to discuss is the Gamble mode. To trigger this feature, all you need to do is land a win in the base game and then you can decide to use the Gamble mode or not. It involves gambling your winnings by selecting a card and multiplier that are displayed on a red and black wheel. You then spin the wheel and if the arrow points to the card you selected then you will bag yourself a nice payout.
Theme, Graphics and Sound
The graphics are bright and colourful as the game is played out in front of a studio audience that are displayed as purple silhouettes. Symbols consist of Bob, some of the female hosts, and the usual mix of A – 9 card symbols. The animations are neat as cards instantly flip when you spin the reels and it is a nice nod to the “The Price Is Right” TV show. You will also notice a glamorous red-haired host beside the reels and Bob will pop up from time to time and tap the screen with his finger in order to entice you to press the Spin button.
The music is fast and upbeat with an 80s vibe. It complements the game really well.
Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots
The game has 20 paylines, a below-average RTP of 94.12%, a fantastic maximum payout of 2,000X your original bet, and a progressive jackpot.
