ZZTop Roadside Riches slot review
ZZTop Roadside Riches slot by Play'n Go joins their rock music themes collection and is a great addition to the range. We have seen some pretty good ones such as Sabaton slot which is more for the thrash fans, Demon slot which is slightly milder in intensity and for the connoisseurs of metal, Helloween slot which is my favourite so far. Sadly, Dusty Hill the bassist died just as this game was released so perhaps it's appropriate we remember him here. You get music from their popular tracks as the soundtrack which can be adjusted in the menu, the band members on the reels along with a plain background for contrast here. So can this game gimme all its loving to my bankroll or will the price of being a sharp dressed man prove too much?
On the reels...
You get 1024-ways on ZZTop Roadside Riches slot therefore 5 reels of 3 rows where some symbols can appear stacked. The 3 band members all appear and pay 5x bet for 5-of-a-kind singly but not mixed, the Legs Expanding Wilds will expand if they form part of a win and pay 7.5x for 5 with normal Neon Sign Wilds which can award a 2 or 3x multiplier randomly in the base game. The band's Logo Keyring is the scatter which appears on all reels and the remaning 5OAKs are Sunglasses or Cow Horns at 1.5x and four card suits all at 0.25x per full way of 5. No random modifiers so straight to the features.
3 or more ZZTop scatters trigger a choice of free spins. When you've chosen, the digits of a petrol pump will spin and award 5 to 20 spins, no extras or retriggers.
Legs Free Spins - during these, all Legs Wilds will expand and become Walking Wilds, remaining in position until leaving off the left of the grid.
Gimme Free Spins - during these, the Neon Sign Wilds will award multipliers to 5x rather than 3x in the base game.
You cannot get both kinds of Wilds in either bonus option but we are told up to 40,000x is possible, presumably on the Legs option with continual full screens - you will get at least one of your chosen Wilds appear per spin during the bonus, which almost always gives 8 spins regardless of scatters.
ZZTop Roadside Riches slot has a 96.25% RTP but beware as lower versions are offered by some casinos! The music is well, music which is great if you like the band like I do. Graphics are weak but the animations are very good, especially the Legs Wilds when they walk across in the free games! The base game throws some decent mid-range wins in when double symbols appear on all 5 reels but the bonus round is extremely volatile, especially the Legs one which is where I suggest the mega wins would occur - rarely. Go for the Gimme spins if you want a better chance of not getting a tiny result, Legs if you want to risk a big win. This slot is very entertaining and and I'm sure over time it'll give someone some lovin'...
