Pints and Pounds slot review
With a whopping betting range that caters for slots fans of all budgets, a neat little feature bonus, and a main character on the reels who looks like Bob Barker, slot developer Cryptologic’s beer-fueled slot, Pints and Pounds, looks the real deal.
Pints and Pounds is a 5-reel, 25-payline slot with betting starting at just $0.01 a coin. But with $20-a-coin bets possible, this slot obviously means everyone is included.
Hazar! There's a 2,000x Your Line Bet Jackpot!
It’s just as well, as the world of Pints and Pounds is a very German-looking beer festival, that haven of inclusivity, full of overflowing glasses, buxom bar wenches, and Brucie, of course. Even the 9-through-Ace symbols jump up and down in revelry whenever they form a winning combo. It’s the Pints and Pounds logo that will bag the most for you, though – hit five across the reels and you’ll bag the top jackpot of 2,000x your line bet.
The Wild icon appears on Reels 3, 4, 5, and substitutes for all symbols other than the Fish, Chips, and Pint Scatters.
Free Spins! We'll Drink to That!
The Free Spins Bonus is activated when hitting those three different symbols anywhere at the same time on Reels 2, 3, and 4 (the fish only appears on 2, the chips on 3 and the beer on 4, so you’ll have to spin well to trigger this bonus).
Mmmm, Win Big with the Pub Grub Bonus
The bonus game triggers a unique ‘Pub Grub Bonus’ set of reels, where you’ll receive 6 free spins.
Each fish, chips, or pint spun on the bonus reels go towards completing a ‘meal’. Spin all of the meal constituents to win a bonus. If you keep completing meals you’ll earn multipliers on your win, so hitting three meals in a single spin, for example, will award you triple the normal amount.
Cryptologic aren’t the only slots giant who’ve got another pint in when it comes to beer-themed slots. Microgaming’s Oktoberfest-themed game, Beer Fest, treads similar ground to Pints and Pounds with similarly good effect, while Cryptologic's own Oktoberfest is a great game with a top atmosphere. Finally, the recently released Bierhaus slot from WMS Gaming is another slot that could very well take your liking if you enjoyed this slot.
