Andre the Giant

Wrestling fans around the world will love this great slot theme based on this titan of the ring. They will particularly enjoy seeing their hero go truly Wild as Andre the Giant puts his boot literally through your reels! This five reel, three row slot appears in the middle of the ring, surrounded by an expectant crowd. Some load and raucous American style guitar rock builds the atmosphere as the reels spin. The designers of this game have certainly worked harder than most: playing card values are pleasingly absent for a change: after all who would play cards with all this excitement around? Instead, the reels are full of memorabilia and icons of the ring. These include some wrestling boots, a championship belt, some ringside tickets, a hot dog and a wrestler’s mask. It all adds to the authentic atmosphere as you click or tap on that Spin button.

The Wild symbol is Andre himself. He can appear on Reels 2 and 4 and can substitute for all the other symbols apart from the Scatter. The Scatter is the Andre the Giant logo. Get three or more of these anywhere on your reels to trigger ten free spins. The top line win will pay you 5,000 x your original stake for five wrestlers on your winning line.

But the truly wild Wilds and fantastic free spins are just the start of the fun on this feature packed game. I’m not a great wrestling fan, but this is a truly enthralling game that really does generate tremendous excitement with some innovative special features and a superb big bout atmosphere. Recommended, and not just for wrestling fans!

Special Features

Andre can go truly Wild when he appears on Reels 2 and 4. He can expand to cover the entire reel or reels he lands on. But, being Andre, he doesn’t just meekly cover all three reels, he puts his giant boot through the reel, so that you are in no doubt at all about the situation! He only does this if the expansion results in a winning combination.

Getting three or more of the Andre the Giant logos on your reels will trigger your ten free spins. But you get so much more than just the ten free games. During your free session, you get to collect some of Andre’s Special Attack Moves on Reel 5. After your ten free games are completed, the fun really begins! You get to enter the ring (not personally of course, that would be extremely dangerous): you get to choose an opponent for Andre, and choose the Special Attack Moves he uses against that opponent. Each successful hit repeats your total free games win. Get three or more successful hits and you get to choose a Giant Signature Finishing Move for Andre to win you a special bonus prize of up to 20 x the triggering bet.

Finally, this game also carries a Gamble Feature. Any line win can be wagered on the turn of a revolving playing card. Choose the right colour to double your prize. Pick the correct suit and your winning sum is quadrupled. You can do this up to five times, but don’t get too greedy: the first time you get it wrong, you lose the lot.
