Based on a popular live casino game, Big Prize Bubblegum is a 5 reel, 1,024 ways to win slot from Incredible Technologies and NextGen Gaming. It comes with a free spins round as well as a pick me feature where instant win prizes and multipliers are on offer. Stakes start at 50p, rising to £125 per spin.
Big Prize Bubblegum is an incredibly perky game - a gumball vending machine is the setting here. You’ll see an assortment 12 different bubble gum symbols spinning around the reels. The best of these is the smiley face which pays 6 times your stake for a 5 symbols combo. The multicoloured bubbly is the game’s wild. It doesn’t offer any pays but does replace everything bar the 3 coin symbols when it hits on reels 2, 3, 4 or 5.
Those 3 coin symbols each trigger the Free Spins feature - land a single bronze, silver or gold coin and you’ll receive 1, 5 or 10 free spins. Land more than 1 coin and the totals are added together. You can re-trigger more free spins too with up to 100 available.
Triggering the free spins also awards the Toy Bonus feature - depending on which toy you get, you’ll receive a bonus of between 1 and 15 times your total bet. The Tetris-style capsule prize awards the Pick Until You Pop Bonus feature. You’ll be taken to a new screen and shown 30 prize capsules.
Behind these are prizes of up to 15 times your stake, 2x or 3x multipliers on your next pick or mystery awards of up to 7.5 times your stake. If you land a toothache symbol, you get to pick from 5 new symbols. Land a cash prize and feature ends. Land a sweet saver and you’ll resume picking.
We found the free spins regularly and enjoyed the best success when we hit the Pick Until You Pop Bonus feature - otherwise, the free spins were a bit hit and miss. We think that Big Prize Bubblegum will be something of an acquired taste.
The features are tasty enough without offering anything really innovative. The design will likely prove a little Marmite. You’ll either love the bouncy soundtrack and bright visuals or hate them. Either way, Big Prize Bubblegum is probably best enjoyed in small doses. I would much rather play Leonidas King of the Spartans which is another Incredible Technologies/NextGen Gaming collaboration.
