The Video slot machine "The Rat Pack" that can be played at most microgaming online casinos is a hip slot designed especially for players that love scatter bonus prizes and free spin bonus features... I have to admit that i fall into this category ;)
The slot machine has a really nice paytable setup with two wild symbols, a "normal" wild symbol that substitute for all normal payline symbols and a "multiplier wild symbol" that double all prizes won where it substitute for normal payline symbols.
The 30 payline setup with two wild features ensure frequent wins but from my experience, the normal game wins are relatively small.
The Rat Pack gets really interesting when players land three or more scatter bonus symbols and trigger the unique dropping scatter free spin feature.
The free spin bonus feature that can be won with The Rat Pack is unlike anything i have seen before. The free spins are played with no counter, - this means that the amount of free spins players can enjoy has no initial limit.
Further more, the game is played without normal payline prizes during the free spin bonus feature.
If you read the above and thought that wins would be low during the bonus then be sure to read the next few lines...
The free spin bonus feature in The Rat Pack slot machine is played with sticky dropping scatter symbols and continue untill players land a spin without scatter symbols.
The sticky dropping scatter symbol feature means that the scatter symbols on the slot machine reels drop one position down after each payout on the slot machine. The scatter symbols drop untill they dissapear from the reel entirely, - at this point the reel spins again.
The feature is truly amazing and one of the few bonus features that i consider a "must try" if you play at one of the nice Microgaming casinos online.
The Rat Pack Payouts and Rules
The bonus rules and game payout information for The Rat Pack slot machine can be found via the game paytable. This first page players see here is a "WIN UP TO 30 000 COINS" page that has information about the unqiue free spin bonus features that players can trigger. The game scatter setup is much to my liking, the first payout is 2X the total slot machine wager with two scatter sybols and increase to 4X, 10X and 100X with 3, 4 and 5 scatter symbols on the slot machine reels.
The title "THE MORE YOU WIN... THE LONGER YOULL SPIN!" isnt wrong at all. The free spin bonus feature is designed to continue untill players stop winning. This means that the more scatter symbosl you land on the game reels, the more you win with the spin and the higher the scatter symbols are positioned on the reels, the longer you are guarantied good wins as well!
The second paytable page has information about the two wild symbols that players can benefit from during normal slot machine spins. The 2X symbol
is a wild symbol with a 200% multiplier attached. This means that all wins where the 2X wild symbol acts as a substituting symbol are paid out 200%. The other wild symbol is a "normal" wild symbol that substitute for all non scatter and 2X symbols. The normal wild symbol also has a "standablone" paytable with a 5,000 coin max prize for five symbols on an active payline.
The Rat Pack Payline symbols
The normal spin payouts can be made with the 10 normal slot machine symbols shown on the two last pages of The Rat Pack paytable. The first page show the five highest paying symbols that all offer players themed icons with members of The Rat Pack, Dancing Rats etc. The top payous here is 1,000 coins, a prize that can be won with three different symbols.
The second payline symbol page has classic poker hand symbols starting from #10 and scaling to Ace (10,J,Q,K,A). It is worth noticing that slot machine only has five low range symbols compared to the 6 symbols many similar slot machines offer.
The Rat Pack Free Spin Bonus Feature
The re-spin bonus feature type that can be won with Fighting Fish is one of my favorite free spin bonus feature types. They are completed really fast because of the limited amount of free spins, but the expanded wild symbols often result in massive wins.
The free spin walk-thru here shows a bonus that ended with more than $850 won during the three wild re-spins.
Triggering the Bonus
The slot machine free spin bonus feature is awarded when three or more scatter symbols appear anywhere on the game reels. Once the free spin feature is awarded, a "START FREE SPINS" button is shown at the bottom of the slot machine interface. The free spin bonus feature start when the button is clicked.
Starting the Free Spins
When the free spin bonus feature is started, the game changes to a more golden design as the normal payline symbols fade to gray.
Three Spin Win
During the free spin bonus feature only scatter bonus prizes are paid out. The good news is that the scatter bonus prizes are much more frequent than during normal spins and that the feature continue as long as players win.
The Power of Sticky Dropping Symbols
The unique sticky dropping scatter symbol feature that is in effect during the free spin bonus feature is what make this slot machine a sure top machine from my perspective.
This spin shows a 4X scatter spin that resulted in 2,400 coins.
Note the positions of the scatter symbols from this spin.
The first reel has no scatter symbols, the 2nd and 3rd reel have scatter symbols on the 3rd row, the 4th reel has a scatter symbol on the 5th row and the 5th reel has a scatter symbol on the 2nd row.
Now that this spin is complete, the 2,400 coins are paid out and each of the scatter symbols fall down one position (one row). Reels that have no scatter symbols spin anew giving players new chances to win.
Dropping in place!
This free spin show just how crazy this new bonus feature can be. The previous spin resulted in 2,400 coins with 4 scatter symbols and 3 scatter symbols were guarantied for the next spin. They dropped one position and can be seen here on the 2nd, 3rd and 5th slot machine reels.
The 1st and 4th reels had no scatter symbols and had to spin again.
A new scatter symbol appeared on the 1st slot machine reel, this resulted in another round with 2,400 coins won.
The next spin is allready guarantied to give a minimum prize with 2 scatter symbols because the symbols on the 1st and 5th reel will drop to the 5th row and appear once more.
Bonus Feature Summup
At some point players will get a spin with zero scatter symbols. Once this happens, the free spin bonus feature ends and a Bonus feature summup screen is showed with information about the total feature. The bonus feature where these screenshots are from resulted in total of 12,960 coins during the scatter bonus free spin feature that lasted 14 free spins.
