Benny the Bull makes a stampeding return as Play’n GO clinch our SOTW

Play’n GO’s latest release sees Benny the Bull make a comeback in a title wilder than a bucking bronco as SlotBeats awards Bull in a Rodeo its most recent Slot of the Week award.

As a 5×3 reel, 20-payline video slot, Bull in a Rodeo combines variable enhancing wild features with a stampeding freedom bonus game to offer players a maximum win of up to x2,000 their stake.

“We’ve been looking to give Benny the Bull a new adventure since he caused mayhem in Bull in a China Shop,” stated Charlotte Miliziano, Head of Games at Play’n GO.

“We pride ourselves on our characters and their development. What’s their next move? Have they made some new friends along the way? These characters provide humorous storylines that players can’t get enough off. I wonder what Benny’s next adventure might be…”

The game is a sequel to Benny the Bull’s first slot appearance released well over a year ago, Bull in a China Shop. This latest edition to the Bull series sees Benny frustratingly encaged within a rodeo, giving players the chance to reap rewards by setting him free.

Low value symbols in the game come in the form of the suits in a deck of cards, with clubs, diamonds, spades and hearts. Next up, medium symbols are represented by hats, boots and whiskey. Saloon doors and a cowboy bull-fighter depict the high paying symbols, offering between x3 and x18 the player’s stake if the right amount of winning combinations land in one turn.

Other symbols include various bull wild character symbols. All wilds substitute for all paying symbols in the game. The Benny the Bull wild offers a payout between x3 and x40 the player’s stake, depending on the amount of symbols that land on a single payline.

Expanding wilds, blue bull wilds, gate scatters and a x2 Benny the Bull wild can also drop onto the reels, with the latter offering a payout between x6 and x80 the player’s stake if the right amount of symbols land consecutively on a single payline.

Landing Benny the Bull wilds onto the reels can offer different wild features depending on his mood, and it only takes one wild to drop into play to activate these features. If Benny is angry then he will turn into his x2 multiplier version, dropping more multiplying wilds around the board to increase the win potential.

If Benny is happy, then he will drop more wilds onto the reels, but they will be the standard non-multiplying wild symbols. If Benny is looking proud then he will turn into an expanding wild, growing to fill out an entire reel.

Furthermore, if players can land a gate scatter on the reels at the same time as a Benny wild, then the freedom spins game mode will be activated.

With this feature, Benny breaks out of the rodeo, offering ten free spins to the player. The standard blue bull wilds can only drop into play during this game mode, and three are guaranteed to drop in after every win. They surround winning paylines to give an increased payout.
