Snake Rattle & Roll is a 5 reel, 20 to 50 payline progressive jackpot slot brought to you by Novomatic. Playable from 20p to £100 per spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices (like laptops, PCs, Android and iOS), you are taken to faraway Indian where you’ll come across a snake charmer.
Aesthetically, Snake Rattle & Roll takes place in India in a forest – with the snake charmer appearing at the side of the reels, it has an upbeat pungi soundtrack as you spin the reels. Symbols include playing cards (A, K, Q, J and 10) as well as the red snake and Snake Rattle & Roll dice. The red snake is the wild and substitutes for all symbols.
When it comes to bonus features, there are 4 – look out for the red snake wild. When it appears, it will trigger the Sliding Wild feature and wriggle across the symbols of the reel it landed on giving you a wild reel. The good news is that wilds can appear on all reels.
Then you have the Snake Charmer Bonus feature where the snake charmer randomly blows his pungi and charms some extra Sliding Wilds onto the reels.
There is also a Snakes and Ladders feature which is played when you land 3 to 5 dice symbols – 3 will give you 3 dice rolls whilst 4 gives you 4 dice rolls. If you get 5, you will 5 dice rolls. With every roll of the dice, you move around the board collecting cash prizes, more dice rolls, free spins and extra wild symbols.
If you make it to the top, you will win the progressive jackpot! Look out for Snake Eyes on your 1st roll as this gives you the chance of the snake charmer running all the way to the jackpot.
After this feature has ended, you will enter the Free Spins feature. You then get to choose from 3 different free spins options – with 20, 40 or 50 paylines. The number of free spins you will receive depends on how many rounds you’ve played in the Snakes and Ladders feature.
Look out for snake baskets appearing on reel 5 during the feature – these are collected and if you have got 5, you need to pick 1. It will reveal more free spins which are added to your total. I’ve managed 12 free spins in total.
I really like Snake Rattle & Roll – the theme is fun and the soundtrack is excellent. As for the bonus features, I found some of my bigger wins to come from the Sliding Wild feature – especially when I got 3 fully wild reels. It’s all about the Snakes and Ladders feature where you can win cash prizes, extra wilds and the progressive jackpot.
The latter is quite hard to win obviously but playing the Free Spins feature straightaway, with extra Sliding Wilds hopefully, really helps. Overall, Snake Rattle & Roll is an entertaining game with the variance being medium to high. If you like the theme, Novomatic’s Golden Cobras Deluxe is recommended.
