Bloopers

This glitzy and sumptuously designed five reel three row game features a Hollywood theme. The reels cover the entire screen, and are designed to look like real movie film as they run. The reel characters consist of many movie symbols, including generic male and female movie stars, a film reel, a movie clapper board, together with a few high playing card values. But it’s not all about the stars on this title. Instead, it is the behind the scenes roles that are the focus of this entertaining game. These behind the scene technicians turn up in the game’s special feature, with five different characters, all with different functions helping to boost your chances of winning. The soundtrack is a lively Hollywood style accompaniment, the kind of backing you would expect at an Oscar ceremony. With the scene set, it’s time for… “Action!”

Game Play

The wild feature on this title is a “Wild Bloopers” logo, and this golden symbol can substitute for all the other characters apart from the Bonus Star, increasing your chances of achieving a winning combination. Get three or more Bonus Stars anywhere on your reels triggers the Free Spins Bonus Game special feature (see below). These bonus stars can feature any (or none) of the five unique Blooper characters. You can choose your bet level. This can range from as little as 25p up to a maximum £100 per spin.

Special Features

Get three or more Bonus Stars to trigger this title’s special bonus feature. Your free spins run to a Hanna Barbara style theme tune as the reels continue to run. These reels can wobble just like a real traditional film roll, adding an eye catching extra dimension to the game. Meanwhile, your favoured blooper characters appear intermittently on screen to help you build up some handsome potential prizes. Each has their own unique method of doing this. The blue Stunt Man can award you some Expanding Wilds, the green Cutter can award you with additional falling symbols, while the pink Make-Up Artist can supply you with some extra free spins. Meanwhile, the yellow Sound Tech character can supply you with some random wilds. But the best must surely be the purple Mr Fix It, who arrives with a kind of laser gun to blast your reel symbols, resulting in an explosive and rewarding change of status. You are guaranteed at least one of these characters to help you during your free spins, and often more than one can appear either because they arrive on your reels, or even at random.

As if this were not enough excitement, the Male or Female Movie Star characters can turn into Sticky Wilds on the central reels to boost your prospects of winning. The Free Spins Special feature only ends when all nine central reel positions are covered by your allotted movie star.

This game also offers you the chance to choose from four different pre-set betting strategies. These are called Optimiser, Leveller, Booster and Jumper, and each uses a different tactic to alter your bet level according to previous win patterns. You could for example, set your bet per spin to rise or fall as a proportion of your available balance, or maybe raise your bet level after a win, up to a pre-set limit. The choice is yours, and you do not have to select any of these options if you prefer to use your own intuition.

Summary

This is a really entertaining title with a fabulous movie star theme. The whole game is well thought through, with loads of exciting special features to keep you enthralled. It’s not one for the simple fruit machine style slot fan though. You will definitely need to keep your wits about you if you want to enjoy this game at its best. This complex title’s special features are a real delight, with lots going on simultaneously. Meanwhile the betting strategy options are aimed at the more experienced player, although the beginner could learn from discovering some of the tactics the professional gamers use to maximise their success rate. The theoretical Return to Player rate (RTP) is over 96%.
