The Flintstones is a Playtech-powered slot with 5 reels and 1,024 ways to win. Available to play on mobile, tablet and desktop devices from 40p per spin, the game is based on the first animated prime-time American television series. Produced by Hanna-Barbera, The Flintstones has become a household name all over the world.
Perfectly depicting the cartoon series, symbols on the reels include Fred Flintstone, Barney Rubble, Wilma Flintstone, Betty Rubble and Dino. The highest value symbol is Dino, the Flintstone’s dinosaur pet, which rewards you with 1,000 times your line bet for getting 5 on a payline – it’s also the wild symbol.
When it comes to bonus features, there’s 5 to benefit from. Look out for the bowling ball with 3 pins bonus symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 in the base game as this triggers the Bedrock Bowling Bonus feature. You get to go bowling with Fred for prehistoric prizes – you pick your style of bowling for cash prizes. You will win your cash prize multiplied by how many pins you knock down – if you score a strike, you get an extra throw. If you score a strike in a free throw, you will get another free throw with an extra multiplier.
The main attraction is the Free Games feature which is played when you get The Flintstones house symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4 in the base game – here, you choose 1 of 3 Flintstones free spins modes. Details are as follows:
Dino Multiplier Free Games feature – you are awarded 10 free spins. Dino digs for bones on every free spin – for every bone found, the multiplier increases. You can also retrigger the feature giving you up to 20 free spins in total.
The Great Gazoo Free Games feature – you will receive 12 free spins. The Great Gazoo gives you extra-terrestrial transformations with the Great Gazoo extra wild symbol randomly turning other symbols wild. Again, you can retrigger the feature giving you up to 24 free spins.
Wilma Wild Free Games feature – you get 5 free spins. Wilma vacuums up any wild symbols that lands on the reels after every free spin. All wilds collected are then added on the reels for the final Ultra Spin. Like with the other 2 free spins feature, you can retrigger the feature giving you 10 free spins.
Now, there’s The Flintstones Rocky Ride feature – Fred and Barney can roll in randomly on any base game spin to rumble up mystery symbols and win multipliers. Look out for the wheel at the top of the reels which spins and reveals a win multiplier. Fred and Barney then throw mystery symbols on the reels with all mystery symbols changing into the same symbol – the wins are then multiplied by the win multiplier.
As you can see, there’s plenty going on in The Flintstones slot – my favourite is the Dino Multiplier Free Games feature as 20 free spins with an increasing multiplier is the highest rewarding one. I’ve seen Dino collect 8 bones which resulted in a 8x multiplier and wins of over 320 times my stake.
I consider The Flintstones to be a medium variance game which has decent wins in all bonus features – as mentioned, the free spins features will give you bigger wins naturally. It does look and sound fantastic with a good range of features so thumbs up to Playtech for releasing another superb branded game. Playtech offer many branded titles including Top Gun, Monty Python’s Spamalot and Ace Ventura Pet Detective.
