Fruit Frenzy

Fruit Frenzy by Realtime Gaming is a 5-reel 25-line slot machine with access to the RTG Real Series progressive jackpot.

It’s downright bizarre! Beyond the strangeness, however, Fruit Frenzy by RTG is a fun fast-paced game that has a wide range of features.

Jack Hammer 2

Jack Hammer 2

Jack Hammer 2: Fishy Business by NetEnt is a non-progressive video slot machine with five spinning reels, 99 pay lines, and a host of fun, lucrative features. Jack Hammer is a hard-boiled detective straight out of the pulps, and in the first game, he saved the girl and the city by foiling the plot of the evil Dr. Wuten. In the sequel, Don Crabby, a local mobster, has set his sights on Pearl, and it’s up to Jack Hammer to save her once again. Like its predecessor, Jack Hammer 2 has a strong sense of 1930s pulp fiction, and it uses a comic book style and an authentic soundtrack to realize the genre.

Characteristics

• 99 pay lines
• Jackpot: 5,000 coins
• Min coin: 0.01
• Max coin: 0.50
• Bet levels: 10
• Wild symbol

Gladiator

Gladiator

Gladiator is a 5-reel 25-line video slot machine by Playtech. Playtech based the game on the Gladiator movie by DreamWorks, which Ridley Scott directed and Russell Crowe starred in. Gladiator was a movie on the grandest of scales, and this slot machine certainly tries to live up that. It supports $25 coins. The maximum bet is $6,250, and the top jackpot is a staggering $1.25 million. Those are very impressive numbers for a slot machine that doesn’t have a progressive jackpot associated with it. Nevertheless, Gladiator also caters to the low roller. It has an arcade mode and real money play is as lows as $0.02.

Characteristics

• 5 reels
• 25 bet lines
• Wild symbol
• Scatter symbol
• Min coin: $0.02
• Max coin: $25
• Coins per line: 10
• Bonus game
• Gamble feature
• $1.25 million jackpot

Gameplay

Most slot games licensed by movies take full advantage of their leading star, but that isn’t the case here. In fact, Russell Crowe’s character, Maximus, is nowhere to be found. Instead, the action focuses on Joaquin Phoenix as Commodus and many other supporting cast members. This works surprisingly well, and the game has a fresh feel rather than simply being another movie retread.

In Gladiator, the small bet is two cents, so the player can activate all betting lines for just $0.50. The game also includes a wild symbol, a scatter symbol and a bonus game, and there are numerous opportunities to win free spins. Any time the player wins, the gamble feature lets them risk as much as $2,500 on an all-or-nothing bet.

The game doesn’t have a wide range of special features, but it doesn’t really need them. It is quite lucrative as is. Monopoly does have a wild symbol, which can substitute for any other symbol. It also has a bonus symbol. If that hits on reel 1, 3 and 5, the board bonus launches.
