Having wowed audiences with state-of-the-art releases like Candy Gold and Aloha Spirit XtraLockTM, Swintt is certainly no stranger to innovation – however, sometimes the classics are classics for good reason, as demonstrated by the software provider’s new slot, Big Max Pots and Pearls.
The latest addition to Swintt’s ever-growing catalogue of Premium releases, on the face of its Big Max Pots and Pearls is a retro-styled title that takes its inspiration from classic land-based slot machines. Featuring five reels and 50 fixed paylines, the game is bursting with familiar fruit-themed symbols such as cherries, lemons, oranges and plums, but also uses special fox wilds that expand to fill their columns.
Beyond its instantly-recognisable aesthetics, though, players will find a game that packs a lot of features under its hood, including the presence of mystery prizes and a welcome return of the software provider’s signature Pearl Respin bonus round. The latter of these two exciting extras can be particularly profitable, given it can potentially pay out four local jackpots worth up to 50,000x apiece.
Dealing with the two main features in order, the mystery bonus is awarded whenever three diamond scatter symbols appear anywhere on the reels during the base game. Should this happen, players will be prompted to click the screen to reveal a random prize of 30x, 60x or even 100x their selected stake.
The Pearl Respin feature, meanwhile – though equally easy to trigger – is a little more complex. Activated whenever six pearl symbols appear simultaneously, players will initially be granted three spins on a new set of reels where only these icons are present. Should another pearl land during their respins, the counter will reset and they’ll be able to continue playing until all 15 reel spaces are filled.
During the Pearl Respin, any one of the Minor, Major, Maxi or Mega jackpots can arrive to award a colossal cash prize, and at the end of the feature, the values of all pearl symbols are totalled up and awarded as a bonus payout. What’s more, any winnings that are accrued in either feature or the base game can then be gambled in an optional bonus round via the return of Swintt’s popular Risk feature.
Available after any win, the Risk feature requires players to correctly guess the colour of a hidden playing card in order to double the value of their current prize. Up to four rounds of Risk can be played at any time, with the game also ending when the maximum win is reached or an incorrect pick is made.
David Mann, Chief Executive Officer at Swintt, said: “Through our new Big Max Pots and Pearls release, Swintt has successfully provided a fresh twist on the classic fruit-themed slot by combining simple gameplay, graphics and sounds with a range of exciting and exceptionally rewarding additions.
“Thanks to the inclusion of mystery bonus prizes and the return of our popular Pearl Respins feature – which is linked to four lucrative local jackpots – we’ve taken our successful Premium release formula to the next level and we can’t wait to hear what our players think of it when it debuts later this month.”
