With a name like Chitty Bang we were expecting a slot that featured flying cars and Dick Van Dyke. Instead, it’s a 5 reel, 972 ways to win fruit machine reboot from Pariplay. It comes with a bonus round that awards up to 60 free spins, initially, where the symbols on reels 4 and 5 are fused together in 2×2 blocks. Look out too for the re-spins with giant 3×3 symbols. Play on all devices from between 50p and £25 per spin.
The set up in Chitty Bang is a little unusual – reels 1, 2 and 3 are 3 rows high with reels 4 and 5 each displaying 6 symbols. You’ll see heart, diamond, club and spade symbols alongside plums, lemons, cherries, melons, bells and stars. The best of the standard symbols is the lucky 7 – land 5 on adjacent reels for a 4 times stake payout.
The most rewarding symbol is the diamond which is the wild – it replaces all other symbols apart from the scatter (the Bang symbol) and pays 2, 3 or 8 times your stake per 3, 4 and 5 symbol combination. Chitty Bang comes with 2 bonus features:
Giant Re-Spin feature – on reels 1, 2 and 3 you’ll notice that some symbols are ‘lit’. If all 9 positions are lit, you’ll be awarded a re-spin. Reels 1, 2 and 3 on that re-spin will feature colossal 3×3 symbols. This guarantees a winner which has the potential to be a big one.
Scatter Free Spins feature – land 3, 4 or 5 of the scatter anywhere on the reels on the same spin and you’ll receive 8, 12 or 40 free spins. During these free spins, the symbols on reels 4 and 5 are fused together and only feature 2×2 symbols.
If a scatter lands during this round, 2 extra free spins are added to your total. Hit 2 scatters on the same spin and you’ll get 4 more free spins – in total, there’s up to 20 more free spins to be won which takes your potential total to 60 altogether.
Chitty Bang is a simple enough game and one we enjoyed more than we expected. The design is fresh and glossy and there’s a bouncy backing track playing in the background. There’s nothing especially innovative about the extras but the both the Giant Re-Spin feature and Scatter Free Spins feature offer some excellent potential.
If you’re a fan of classic fruit machines with a twist, then Chitty Bang is one to add to your playing rotation. We still have no idea what the title is all about though! I also recommend you try other Pariplay slots with Asteroids and Fire vs Ice 2 of their better titles.
