Atari Black Widow slot review
Like the Star Raiders slot, Black Widow is based on the old Atari games and supplied through the Pariplay platform. In the 1982 Black Widow game, players take the role of a Black Widow, defending its web from numerous invading bugs. The slot game follows a similar story, with many of the enemy bugs on the reels, along with the key Black Widow character. The graphics are crisp and the sound effects good especially when the heavily armed bugs form a winning combination.
On the reels...
Black Widow slot has 25 paylines and 5 reels with 3 rows. There are non-multiplying wilds on each reel paying 120x stake for 5-of-a-kind (5OAK) and the top-paying bug pays 40x stake for 5OAK down to 2.4x stake for the lowest symbol, the 10. A novel characteristic of the graphics is the there are actually playing cards to represent the letters and numbers!
Black Widow slot has 3 features triggered on the reels. Should you get the Exterminator on reels 1 and 5 you will have 12 shots at some creepy looking bugs which award a coin value. This is usually quite a rewarding feature; 40x stake was my result both times in my session.
If 3 'Seek And Destroy' symbols land on reels 2,3 and 4 you will get a map with various hiding places where 3 infiltrator bugs have hidden. Select the sites on the map and try and eradicate the 3 intruders. If you find all 3 a decent pay awaits!
3 free spins scatters anywhere in view trigger free games. There are 15 and they can retrigger. There are no multipliers or extra wilds but it seems you can hit the other 2 features more easily during the free spins. The rewards are variable and I had some pretty decent returns.
The RTP of Black Widow Slot is a decent 95.07% and the features land often enough to keep you interested. The variance is low-medium and the game is pleasing on the eye. You'll not achieve massive wins but the middling wins can add up to a decent profit. As with other Atari-themed slots from Pariplay, this game is likely to appeal to retro gamers, but possibly not big slotters.
