Bridesmaids Slot Review
Bridesmaids is powered by Microgaming and has 5 reels and 40 paylines. The game is based on the hugely successful 2011 romantic comedy film which became a worldwide hit. Pretty in pink defines the theme perfectly with diamante-framed reels, sparking paylines and the 6 female characters all featuring. The game features funny clips from the film in the Bonus features and can be played from 40p to £60 a slot.
Bridesmaids may be based on a chick flick but it will appeal to anyone who appreciates good bonus features – this is because it benefits from quite a few. Everything is triggered via the Wheel Bonus feature which can be played when get 3 or more cupcake scatters anywhere on the reels.
You will then get to spin the Bonus Wheel which has been a successful feature in land based casino slots (by IGT of course). You will then spin to land 1 of 15 prizes – there are 10 cash prizes to be won, 4 bonus features (described below) and 1 jackpot prize.
Firstly, there is a Cupcake Booster feature – you have to pick a cupcake to win 4 different prizes. These range from a 2x or 3x multiplier on all pink cash prizes, a 2x or 3x multiplier on all blue cash prizes, a 2x or 3x multiplier on all wheel cash prizes and 2 extra wheel pointers. In terms of cash prizes, you can win up to 300 times your stake.
In terms of the 4 bonus features, you have the Flying High Free Spins feature where you will receive 10 free spins. It benefits from Rolling Reels and Growling Wilds – Rolling Reels can award multiple consecutive wins as winning symbols are replaced by new ones. Growing Wilds stacks increase 1 wild per spin with up to 13 wilds available. Here, there’s up to 1,200 times your stake to be won.
Then you have the Friendship Free Spins feature where you are granted 10 free spins – wins pay both left to right and right to left to increase your chances of winning. There are also stacked symbols and Friendship symbol combinations. The Annie symbol is stacked on reels 1 and 2, Helen symbol is stacked on reels 4 and 5 and Lillian symbol is stacked on reel 3. You can retrigger the free spins to give you up to 20 in total. This is the most lucrative of the features with up to 1,750 times your stake to be won.
Next is the Boutique Bonus feature where you match Bridesmaids to win cash prizes – there are 2 random Bridesmaids which include bonus multipliers. If you match multiplier pairs, you will add an extra multiplier to the total win but the feature ends with you find a matching Lillian pair. You can win up to 66 times your stake here.
Finally there is the Magic Moments Bonus feature where you pick magic moments to win cash prizes – up to 10 moments will be chosen. 9 of them will give you a cash prize and pick again and 1 of them will end the feature. This feature can be quite profitable as up to 350 times your stake can be won.
Whilst Bridesmaids may seem quite girly, the bonus features are good and can provide big wins if you’re lucky – it’s a medium variance slot which I quite like (despite never watching the film). I think it will prove popular but if you like movie-inspired slots, Jurassic Park and Terminator 2 (both by Microgaming) are highly recommended.
