Weddings are a joyous occasion to celebrate the union of two people who wish to spend the rest of their lives together. Because they also tend to serve as de facto family unions and get togethers of old friends who have not seen each other in some time they can also, when mixed with a fair amount of alcohol, be a YouTube video in the making. Hilarious clips from wedding videos are often featured on the television show America’s Funniest Videos. With this theme in mind, on February 2, 2010, Rival Gaming released Wacky Weddings Slots. As its’ name implies, the game is built around a wedding scene and includes several bonus features sure to impress slots players.
Wacky Wedding Slots – The Details
The Wacky Wedding Slots game is a 20 line, 5 reel video slot. Available coin denominations are $.01, $.05 and $.10. You may bet up to 10 coins per line on up to 20 lines. The maximum jackpot payout is 1,500 for five diamond wedding rings on the same payline.
The Wacky Wedding Slots Game Symbols
The usual suspects you would expect to be in attendance at wedding are represented by their associated symbols. You of course have the bride and groom, along with the mother-in-law, father-in-law, grandma, grandpa and even a young flower girl and ring bearer. Other symbols found on the reels of Wacky Wedding slots include a wedding ring, flower bouquet, champagne bottle and a wedding cake.
Wacky Wedding Slot Machine Game Play
The Wacky Wedding slot game begins with a scene of a groom standing at the alter waiting for his bride. He is clearly nervous, sweating profusely. You can hear the murmur of gathered throng in the background as he anxious anticipates the arrival of wife to be. Then she appears and you hear the clang of wedding bells and the video ends and the game begins. While this game plays like any other video slot, what makes Wacky Wedding slots special are the wacky character animations. If any symbol ends up on the same payline on the first four reels, the associated character appears in an animation on top of the video slot screen. Grandpa will come out and do a dance, grandma appears with a stern look on her face, waving her finger, the flower girl skips her way across the screen, and my personal favorite, the young ring bearer walks across the screen wiping his nose. Snot even begins to drip from the top of the screen. The mother-in-law and father- in-law also make their appearances.
Wacky Wedding Slots Expanding Wild Symbol
The wedding cake symbol is an expanding wild symbol. This is a neat little feature of Wacky Wedding Slots. The wedding cake symbol only appears on the center third reel. If it shows up, it expands to take up the entire third reel and is wild for every pay line that includes the center reel.
Champagne Bottle Scatter Bonus
The Wacky Wedding slots scatter bonus is triggered by getting 3, 4, or 5 champagne bottle icons to appear anywhere on the reels. The player is then awarded 10, 20 or 75 free spins respectively. And, these free spins are paid out at a 3X multiplier. Additional free spins can be one during the champagne free spin bonus and the bouquet bonus round can be initiated from the free spin.
Wacky Wedding Slots Bouquet Bonus Round
If three or more flower bouquet symbols show up anywhere on the reels, the bouquet bonus round is initiated. The bride appears on the screen, bouquet grasped firmly in her hands while available women and a shady looking man who can only be characterized as a self styled ladies man – in his own mind – gather in a line behind her. A red arrow below the bride rotates from side to side. Pressing the toss button causes the bride to fling the bouquet to one of those waiting behind her. You are awarded a bonus that is dependent on who catches the bouquet. However, don’t let the ladies man catch it. He is showered with beer cans by the gathered crowd and you win no bonus at all.
My Experience Playing Wacky Wedding Slots
I played the game online at Superior Casino. After registering and logging in, I selected the no download version of the casino, went to the screen to choose from among a strong lineup of slots games and was playing Wacky Wedding slots within a minute. The flash software was very responsive without any delays and jerky play I have experienced elsewhere. As for the game itself, I think it is a hit! I love the video at the beginning, the character animations and the bonus rounds. I think you will too.
