Based on the 2011 Universal Picture’s Bridesmaids, a brand new online slot machine was released which uses symbols of the characters; Maya Rudolph, Melissa McCarthy, Rebel Wilson and Kristen Wiig. The slot game was scheduled to be released in August of 2015 as Microgaming’s latest branded slot machine. The necessary licensing was obtained to create this action and feature packed slot. It is expected to be to be delivered over Microgaming’s Flash, Quickfire platforms, downloads and some mobiles as well. Adding to the challenge and the fun are clips from the actual movie after a win, making this game even that much more enjoyable.
The color pink is dominant in the game just as it was in the movie. The game has been specially designed to appeal to female slot players; however with its good bonus features it will attract many. An attractive pink console depicts the faces of the characters from the movie. In the base game there is iconic imagery and the hit music from the movie as well. The blockbuster movie, Bridesmaids grossed over $300 million and over 80 industry awards and nominations. This new branded slot game joins an impressive lineup of other great titles such as; Game of Thrones, Jurassic Park, Tomb Raider (one and two), Battlestar Galactica, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Terminator 2 and Playboy.
Bridesmaids has packed into it a lot of special features and immersive bonus rounds for players. The base game is called, “For Better” and is an interactive experience with “Annie’s Wild Ride” and a “Bouquet Toss”. Two Free Spins Bonus Rounds and two Picking Bonuses can be triggered from within the Wheel Bonus. When three or more Cupcake Scatter Symbols appear in view anywhere, it triggers the Wheel Bonus instantly. This offer has 15 prizes possible to win including; ten cash prizes, one jackpot win or four bonus features. With the bonus feature there are; friendship free spins, boutique bonus, magic moments and flying high free spins.
The Flying High Free Spins grants a player ten free spins. Rolling Reels can award multiple consecutive wins as winning symbols get replaced with new ones. Growing Wilds stacks increase one wild spin with up to thirteen wilds available. The stakes can be increased by 1,200 times.
In the Friendship Free Spins feature the player can win both left to right and right to left, increasing the chances to win. This feature also includes stacked symbols and Friendship symbol combinations. The Annie is stacked on reels one and two, Helen is stacked on reels four and five and Lillian is stacked on reel three. The free spins can be re-triggered giving up to 20 in total. Up to 1,750 times of the stake can be won with the incredibly lucrative feature.
The Boutique Bonus matches Bridesmaids to win cash prizes. There are two random characters which could include bonus multipliers. If the multipliers are matched, it adds an extra multiplier to the total win. When the Lillian pair is matched, the feature ends. This bonus has the potential of a 66 times the stake win.
The last of the four bonus features is the Magic Moments Bonus. Players pick up to ten moments to win cash prizes. Nine of the picks will provide a cash prize and one of them will end the game. This is another profitable feature as stakes can be increased by 350 times.
The Bridesmaids Logo Wild Symbol is another exciting symbol to keep an eye out for. The symbol can appear stacked, filling the entire reel from top to bottom. The only slot it will not fill is the Cupcake Scatter Symbol. Start the Wheel Bonus by picking a cupcake on the right hand side and then spin the wheel to hopefully trigger one of the four bonus rounds.
Bridesmaids has been designed with a fantastic prize structure and playing can bring some really big prizes to those who succeed. Not winning a bonus round sets off a special jackpot prize or a stake multiplier ranging from 8x to 72x as award instead. Play can be completed in either real money or in practice mode with fun playing chips.
This new slot game is different than the typical 243 ways to win game. The slot is a 5×4 reel, with 40 pay lines all enabled by default. The bridesmaids award the highest line payout and are stacked with wilds in the base game and in the free spins. The bridesmaids also are individual symbols. The bridesmaids can be on one row and also stacked on two; which makes the payouts occur more often.
Low paying symbols appear in the game on one row and also stacked as two. The low playing symbols are brightly colored playing card suit icons. The audio is a must with this game as randomly one of the bridesmaids comes onto the screen and delivers a comedy line from her role in the movie. Bridesmaid’s fans will be hoping to hit the Magic Moments bonus. From this bonus there is a pick from 20 magic moments in the movie. Each pick earns the player a clip of that magic moment in the movie. The game also features a “booby”. The “booby” ends your play early.
