Spearhead Studios has collaborated with American golfer John Daly as the company launches its latest sports-themed slot.
John Daly: Spin It And Win It is a 5×3, 243-payline video slot that incorporates a maximum win potential of up to x20,000 the bet.
88.05 – 94.78 per cent
The reels feature 11 symbols including four high-paying, five low-paying, a wild and a bonus symbol.
Bonus symbols can only appear on reels one, three and five, and whenever three of them land anywhere on the reel set, the player is taken to the bonus feature.
Meanwhile, The wild symbol can land on any of the reels in the base game, substituting for any symbol except the bonus.
The title incorporates features such as a bonus round, a free spins mode, multipliers and free spins.
The game includes three modifiers: random wilds, expanding wins and walking wilds. Starting with random wilds, this feature depicts John Daly hitting balls onto the panel. Here, between one and five wilds are randomly added to the existing panel – the final panel is then evaluated and paid.
Meanwhile, expanding wins sees all winning symbols lock and a respin occur. If the respin results in an improved win the new winning symbols also lock and another respin will occur. The sequence terminates when the outcome of the panel preceding it is not improved. The final panel is then evaluated and paid.
Lastly, the walking wild feature sees a wild symbol land on one of the five reels. The wild will be either one, two or three symbols in height for the duration of the sequence. Here, the panel is evaluated and then paid, whereupon a respin occurs, then the wild moves one reel either to the left or to the right.
After seven spins the walking wild can only move in one direction. The sequence of respins terminates after the respin in which the wild exits from the panel.
Furthermore, when the bonus feature is triggered, one of the three available features is randomly selected. Here, the player can either accept the selected feature or choose to gamble in order to play a different feature.
If the player rejects the selected feature, it can no longer be randomly selected and a mystery prize is added in its place. If the game selects a mystery prize, then the player can no longer gamble.
Starting with John Daly’s Big Swing feature, this sees the John Daly character hit a ball into the air. Here, a win multiplier will be displayed incrementing upwards while the ball travels.
The ball will either collide with an object and explode or continue flying until the max multiplier value has been reached (x20,000). The player’s total win is determined by multiplying the bet level by the final win multiplier, and then paid.
Next, the free for all free spins bonus is played with eight initial free spins. Landing three bonus symbols will retrigger the bonus and add five more spins. The game features normal and sticky wilds.
Sticky wild symbols remain in the position in which they initially land for the remainder of the spin sequence, while both types of wild symbols can randomly contain a win multiplier. The individual win multipliers have a value of x2 or x3. The wild multiplier gets applied to the total win of a symbol if at least one of the ways of that symbol contains the wild multiplier.
Lastly, the sticky balls feature sees the reels change to a five-reel four-row layout, where each symbol position is drawn independently and a win multiplier meter is displayed alongside 10 initial free spins.
In this feature, symbols can only be blanks, golf balls with cash prizes, golden balls, or multicolored balls which are sticky for the remaining spins. If one of these symbol types does not land on a position, the position remains empty. Additionally, golden balls increment the overall win multiplier by +1, while multi-colored balls award between two and five additional free spins. Golden balls and coloured balls only can be drawn if the win multiplier value is less than 20. If all 20 symbol positions contain cash prizes the sequence will end.
Finally, mystery prize sees a single, random multiplier of between x20 and x200 selected and paid after which the bonus feature ends.
WHAT THEY SAY
Kevin Corti, game development director at Spearhead Studios, commented: “John Daly: Spin It And Win It is our new marquee game. It is by far the most feature-rich title we’ve ever produced, crazily volatile, and with no less than eight buy features. More so, the ability to gamble their bonuses gives players unparalleled control over how they want to play.”
