Oh, how sweet it is that one of our favourite childhood movies can be finally be redeemed after the most shambolic of film remakes. Back in 2016 and only to line the pockets of corporate Hollywood’s small minded contingent, Ghostbusters was remade with an female cast and, quite frankly, sucked. Far surpassing the original 5-reel Ghostbusters slot which doesn’t offer half as much as this new game, Ghostbusters: Triple Slime see’s online slot pro’s IGT answer back with something more grandeur, something more thrilling and honestly after playing this new video slot, IGT we bow down and worship you.
Who ya gonna call?
Happily, all the familiar characters are back for this one, so it feels like IGT wanted to make a point also. Hollywood take note: something’s are not meant to be messed with.“Slimer Scatter bonus, landing 3 or more of these animations, with a thumbs up from our friendly green blob, triggers the bonus feature.”
The game features a new grid layout, a diamond shaped configuration, to allow the multiway extra wins pay for any matching symbol, in any position, even in adjacent reels. Adding to that the same symbol in the same reel counts. It plays left to right or right to left (win both ways). The icons are much cleaner than the original, with smooth video animations to tease and delight slot fans throughout. It really is a feast to the eyes when you have so many pay lines and amazing animations going off at once, it truly captivates and is a joy to play across all devices, even mobile and tablet.
We came, we saw, it kicked ass!
With so many ways to win, it may help for us to tell you of the games key components and what to look out for.
The Ghostbusters logo is the symbol to look out for because when you land all 5, the multiplier will reward players at 10000x their stake. Landing 4 or even 3 will also trigger the multiplier at a lesser amount. After that, in terms of pay back the second highest symbol is the beloved Bill Murray (Dr Peter Venkman), rewarding players with 1000x their stake for landing 5.
The wild symbol in this new IGT slot game is represented by the biggest villain of them all, The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man! If fatty lands anywhere on the reels then you automatically complete any winning paylines. Next is the ‘Slimer Scatter Bonus’; landing 3 or more of these gives us a thumbs up from our friendly green blob and triggers the bonus feature. Each symbol will have a corresponding ‘Slimer wheel’ and values can range variously depending which wheel you get, giving multiple rewards ranging from 10x all the way up to 2000x the bet. The total multiples are then added together to further increase your winning amount!
The ‘Triple Slime Bonus’ is activated by landing 3 or more Ghost Traps, you get play this oozy round. The number of ghosts you select will determine the number of triggers you are rewarded. Each ghost has its own counter wheel which has various multipliers. Selecting your ghosts prior to the wheel showing will put marker points upon that wheel, so once the selection of ghosts are complete, you’ll see the wheel value and the set markers. Think of it as a wheel of fortune. Spin the wheel and be rewarded with the marker value plus any value you land on.
The green ghost has the highest multiplier, but will the creepy slime ball make enough appearances in your selection at the start?
