Mark Twain’s classic tale get a slots re-telling in Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn. Powered by Bally Wulff, this 5 reel, 10 payline game comes with a bonus feature that awards a dozen free spins complete with frozen wilds and special symbols. Head to the American south from between 10p and £50 per spin.

Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn is a simple offering – don’t expect too much in the way of visual flair. The plain beige reels include the usual selection of playing card values alongside a pipe and an ear of corn which pay up to 15 times your stake.

Next come the paintbrush and bucket and half eaten apple which award 2, 10 or 25 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline. The blond-haired Tom Sawyer is the best of the standard symbols – you only need to land 2 of these to create a winner, albeit 1 that pays one fifth of your total stake. 3, 4 or 5 on a line awards two, 10 or 50 times your stake.

Best of all is the curly haired Huck Finn who is the game’s wild – he substitutes for all other symbols apart from the scatter. Huck also pays 1, 5, 20 or 100 times your stake if you land 2, 3, 4 or 5 on a row.

To trigger the game’s Free Games feature, you’ll need to land 3 or more of the picket fences scatter – you’ll then be awarded 12 free spins. Before these play out, 1 symbol is chosen at random. Whenever that random symbol lands during the free spins, it will remain frozen in place – likewise, the Huck Finn wild. Combine a high value random symbol with the wild and some great winning chances are possible.

You can try and increase your payouts after every winning spin courtesy of the Gamble feature. Either guess the colour of the next playing card shown or work your way up the gamble ladder.

Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn is a typical Bally Wulff slot – the design is simple and the action volatile. The best winning opportunities come via the bonus feature where the sticky wilds and random symbols can deliver in quick time. Don’t expect to trigger the bonus too often but hope to cash in when you do.

This slot may not match the classic status of Mark Twain’s famous tales but it’s still a pretty decent attempt and worth a play if you’re after some simple, volatile hi-jinks. If you like slots based on books, Playtech’s The Riches of Don Quixote is highly recommended.
