Wowpot 5-Reel is an online slot game that was created by Microgaming to follow on the success of its 3-reel counterpart. This game is similar to a traditional fruit slot, containing plenty of fruit symbols recognisable from the original Wowpot game, as well as 5 reels and up to 15 paylines in a modern and colourful setting.
The most notable special feature of this game is the progressive jackpot, which it shares with Wowpot 3-Reel slots. Additionally, wild symbols also act as multipliers to double the value of any winning combinations in which they have substituted a symbol.
Graphics and Game Play
Wowpot 5-Reel is an eye-catching slot game that is fashioned after the classic fruit slot machines that have for so long been a staple addition to the floors of land-based casinos. The game’s graphics are bright and colourful, and the reels are set against a luminous purple backdrop. On plain white reels, a selection of classic slot game symbols can be found, including standard bar and seven symbols that have been enlivened with bright hues, as well as cartoon-style fruits and golden bells. Along the sides of the reels are equally colourful paylines, and the pay table is simple, sleek and easy to navigate.
On the reels of Wowpot 5-Reel online slot NZ betting games are various colourful symbols that players would expect to find on the reels of a traditional fruit slot at their nearest casino. The symbols all pay from left to right on the reels, and include a golden bell, a purple bar symbol, a green and lilac striped seven symbol, a diamond-studded seven symbol and a selection of fruits, including watermelons, lemons, oranges, plums and cherries.
The ‘Wowpot’ logo symbol serves as the game’s wild symbol, which can substitute all other game symbols to create winning combinations on the reels. The only symbol that the wild cannot substitute is the Wowpot 5-Reel scatter symbol. The wild also acts as a multiplier, and will award a 2x multiplier for any winning combination in which it has substituted another symbol, and when 5 of these wilds appear on an active payline, players will be awarded a regular game jackpot of 5,000 coins.
The ‘Scatter’ logo symbol is Wowpot 5-Reel’s scatter symbol. 3 or more of these symbols must appear on any of the reels in order to award scatter pays. Scatter pays are independent from winning reel combinations, and will be paid out separately.
Wowpot 5-Reel Progressive Jackpot
The Wowpot 5-Reel progressive jackpot is continuously growing, as it is a global jackpot shared by both Wowpot 5-Reel and 3-Reel game variations. This progressive jackpot amount is displayed prominently in credit form at the top of the game screen, and is activated when players play the game by wagering the maximum bet of 15 coins per spin. To win the progressive jackpot, 5 wild symbols must appear on Wowpot 5-Reel’s 15th payline. Once the Wowpot 5-Reel progressive jackpot has been paid out, the jackpot value will be reset to 1,000 credits and will begin to accumulate again for the next winner.
