Lately, we’ve become enamored of penny and two-cent slots, especially those with bonus rounds and lots of those little twists and turns that make playing them a blast. If you’re like us, when you first start playing a new game, you may have a winning spin and not even know why! We think that just adds to the fun of playing games for the first time. It’s only if we find a game we enjoy that we stick around for a while and learn what it actually takes to make the game pay.
We decided to take a scouting trip to Gila River’s Wild Horse Pass Casino with the idea of playing games we had never tried and ended up finding some really fun games we can pass on to you. (Of course, the length of time our bankroll holds out — or if we actually win — tends to color whether we liked a game or not.)
In this and upcoming posts, we’ll be giving you info on our “Slot Hunt” faves along with any links showing the game “in action.” Today we start with a colorful, bells-and-whistles-packed penny game from IGT.
Super Hoot Loot — This 5-reel, 40-line game features woodland creatures, wild symbols (the Super Hoot Loot logo and a 2x bonus owl symbol) plus a “free games” bonus round if you hit three “safe door” symbols. The big twist — the Loot Line — offers a multiplier that starts at 40x and goes up based on number of coins per line bet when all lines are covered.
Here’s how the Loot Line works: During each spin, some of the symbols that appear on the screen will have a little owl logo in the corner. Any symbols with the owl will drop down into a bonus line — the Loot Line — and if a winning combination appears, the player receives a pay-out at the multiplier specified on the screen. If you get the “free games” bonus, the 2x wise old owl wild symbol is automatically added to the Loot Line for an even bigger pay-out. Here are a couple of links to videos showing the game in action or watch the video below: Super Hoot Loot bonus round and Loot Line .
