Winstones slot review
Oi, Geezer, what’s this? A mobile slot on yer tablet or smartphone featuring everyone’s crafty Cockney hard-man actor, Ray Winstone – and family? Get in, my son!!! Erm, well, sadly it isn’t – Winstones, from developer Gamesys is actually a parody on the classic ‘60s cartoon sitcom, The Flintstones.
This family are similarly funky as the era that spawned the original series, with the ‘Dad’ sporting long hair and a funky goatee while the Mum has a bouffant and their kids similarly mad hairstyles. There’s also a dino baby and a pet woolly mammoth to keep them company on the reels. Now if there was any sentence that was going to make me want to play a mobile slot then that would be it!
On the Reels...
Making up the 5 reels in this 25 payline slot are some pretty groovy 9-through-Ace psychedelic symbols. Hell, even the theme music sounds (calm down, Hanna Barbera lawyers) like the Flintstones theme tune.
Earn 2x Multipliers with Wild Wins
The Wild is the game logo, and it substitutes for all regular symbols other than the Scatters. You’ll also earn a tasty 2x multiplier on all wins formed by the Wilds.
Win up to 20 Free Spins in the Pterodactyl Wheel Bonus
Three or more Woolly Mammoth Scatters, meanwhile, will trigger the Pterodactyl Wheel Bonus Feature. You’ll receive one spin of the Prize Wheel to determine your haul, which amounts to free spins with a multiplier attached. Spins range from 5 to 20, with multipliers on those ranging from 2x to 5x.
Slick and fun to play, Winstones gives a good account of Gamesys on the portable devices. As with some of the developer’s other mobile games it fits the screen well – even on my basic Android 5” – while tablets work even better. Gamesys’s trademark vector graphics were seemingly designed specifically with mobiles in mind, or maybe their designers just have a hard-on for keeping things simple. For a good example of what Gamesys offer on your mobile, check out the great food-themed mobile slot, Reel Deal Diner with its neat little bonus round, or the Wild West-themed Reel Wild West – both are good places to start.
