Mighty 40 is a classic fruit machine re-boot from Bally Wulff. As the name suggests, this is a 5 reel, 4 row, 40 payline slot that comes with stacked symbols and a bonus feature that awards 10 free spins with a second wild symbol in play. Stakes range from between 15p and £60 per spin.

Don’t expect anything too flashy here, either in terms of looks or gameplay. The design is decidedly retro. The plain green reels include lower value heart, diamond, club and spade symbols. They’re joined by bars and bags full of dollars which award 3.3 times your total bet if you land 5 on a payline. Next comes the bell which offers payline prizes of up to 5 times your stake.

The best of the standard symbols is the lucky 7. Land 5 of these in a line and you’ll pocket almost 17 times your total bet. All of these symbols can land in stacked formation and fill multiple reels on the same spin. Helping you create those winning formations is the shining white diamond which is the game’s wild – it doesn’t award any specific payouts in its own right but it does substitute for everything bar the scatter.

The golden star is that scatter – land 3 or more of these anywhere on the reels on the same spin and you’ll trigger the Free Games feature and with it, 10 free spins. Before that though, you can look forward to a payday equal 1.33, 13 or 333 times your total stake. During the free spins, the lucky 7 will join the white diamond and become a second wild.

The design in Mighty 40 is simple and the gameplay basic – we found it to be a pretty volatile beast though, enduring lengthy winless spins with the occasional decent win keeping things interesting. The pace is pretty brisk so keep an eye on your bankroll.

With it ordinary visuals and steady gameplay, Mighty 40 is a slot for old school fruity lovers only. If you’ve come to play a feature, graphic rich game, then you’ll be disappointed with what’s on offer here. If you’re after some pacey, old school action then Mighty 40 offers just that. I’d rather play other titles such as games from Yggdrasil Gaming or ELK Studios.
