After taking online casino players on a tour round his mansion, NextGen Gaming’s favourite animated fox invites slots fans to join him on a cruise in Foxin’ Wins Again. Set aboard a luxury ship and with 5 reels and 50 paylines, this nautically themed title comes with a free spins feature that offers second chance and doubled prizes and the Super Bet option where you can pay extra on each spin and get more wild symbols. Take to the waves from between 50p and £100 per spin.

A moneybags fox swanning around a yacht seems an unlikely theme for a slot game but surprisingly it all works quite well. The light-hearted images are nicely put together and include cocktails, compasses and cruise ships as well as playing card symbols.

Foxin’ relaxing on the deck is the biggest paying of the standard symbols, offering 1,000 coins for a 5 symbol combo. Foxin’ at the wheel is the wild and substitutes for every symbol apart from the scatter. Five in a payline will award you 2,000 coins. The wilds can appear as stacked wilds and fill an entire reel and greatly boost your winning chances.

Look out too for the fox pups which can leap onto the reels and become wild if you opt for the Super Bet option. You’ll pay extra for the privilege though. Having the fox pup option on all 5 reels will cost you 100 coins. 75 coins will get you fox pups on reels 2, 3 and 4. Bet the standard 50 coins and you’ll get the fox pup on reel 3 only.

The ship’s bell is the scatter. Two will pay 50 times your line bet, three will give 250, four offers 750 with five paying out 5,000 coins. Three or more bell scatters will also trigger the Free Games feature and give you 10 free spins. The fox pups appear more frequently during the feature offering even more wilds.

The real wrinkle with the bonus is the second chance option – if you’re not happy with what you’ve won with your free spins, you can opt to try again. You can re-trigger the free spins if the scatters appear during the bonus. Finally, prizes are doubled when 3 or more scattered bells appear.

Opting for the maximum Super Bet option certainly ups the action with plenty of extra wilds on show. Be warned though, it can soon eat up your bankroll so some caution is recommended. Throw in the impressive sound and visuals and the feature with its double prizes and second chance and Foxin’ Wins Again certainly lives up to its name. For some reason it’s not my favourite NextGen Gaming slot with much better titles like 300 Shields, Psycho and Medusa (which are also higher variance).
