Big Shots is a 6 reel, 4,096 ways to win slot from Playtech that has a luxury feel – playable from 20p to £6 a spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, it benefits from big symbols up to 4×4 in size for enhanced winning potential. There’s also a Free Games feature where you can play up to 10 free spins with only high value symbols on the reels.
Visually, Big Shots is very good – with a harbour featuring luxury yachts and boats in the backdrop, it has cartoon style graphics. Symbols on the reels include hearts, diamonds, spades and clubs as well as 5 characters – you have a hooded female, a chain-bearing fella with sunglasses, a smartly dressed gangster style guy, a classy like who looks like Sharon Stone in Casino and a tuxedo-wearing gent.
The diamond symbol is the wild and can substitute for all symbols bar the Free Games symbol – it’s also the most rewarding with 6 on a payline giving you 6.25 times your stake. Big Shots benefits from big symbols which appear in a variety of sizes – up to 4×4 in size. This helps you comprise winning combinations more easily. To get a win, you need to land the same symbols on adjacent reels.
Big Shots is all about the Free Games feature which is played when you get the Free Games scatter (all 5 characters together) filling reels 2 through 5 (the middle reels). If the scatter appears partially, it can nudge up or down to trigger the feature.
You will then get 5 free spins. During the feature, character symbols replace the hearts, diamonds, spades and clubs meaning only high value symbols will appear on the reels. Finally, you can also retrigger the feature giving you 5 additional free spins.
Now, Big Shots may be simple but the 4,096 ways to win makes it quite appealing – if you were to fill the reels entirely with wilds, you would pocket 25,600 times your stake. Even if you filled the reels with the lowest value character, you’d still win 10,240 times your stake.
I quite like Big Shots – it’s simple in terms of bonus features but it has the potential to pay huge amounts if you get lucky in the Free Games feature. You need to tread carefully as it’s highly volatile so most of the wins will be smaller – triggering the Free Games feature is quite difficult so patience is needed.
