A group of robots take to the dance floor in Shuffle Bots, a simple 5 reel, 20 payline slot from Realistic Games. This colourful game comes with a bonus round that awards 5 or 10 free spins. Play on your PC, tablet or mobile from between 20p and £100 per spin.
There’s a bit of sensory overload about the design of Shuffle Bots – subtle it ain’t. A disco, complete with bright lights and glitterball is the unlikely setting here. On the reels you’ll find lower value A to J symbols which pay up to 2.5 times your stake per payline. Next come the 5 higher paying robots which offer awards of between 5 and 10 times your stake if you hit a 5 in a row combination.
The best of the standard symbols is the Jackbot logo symbol. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these on a payline and you’ll receive a payout of 2.5, 10 or 12.5 times your total stake. Those same amounts are on offer from the wild symbol. It substitutes for all other symbols bar the bonus.
Land 3 or 4 of that Bonus symbol anywhere on the reels on the same spin and you’ll trigger the game’s Shuffling Reels Free Spins feature. On offer here are 5 or 10 free spins. Once in, you will choose 1 of the 5 robots to play – the reels will then see the chosen robot and the royal symbols. On each free spin, a random number of extra robot symbols may be added. The reels shuffle randomly to give you bigger wins.
If you’re lucky enough to land 5 Bonus symbols simultaneously, you won’t win any free spins. Instead you’ll just pocket a bumper prize of some 250 times your total stake.
That’s pretty much all Shuffle Bots has to offer. With so many bright colours and flashing lights on show, the visuals can seem a bit much. The electro-style soundtrack fits the theme though. If the imagery is overloaded precisely the opposite is true of the gameplay which is as stripped back as you’ll find anywhere. This is a super simple game. It’s not even an especially volatile one. The variance here is in the medium range.
We weren’t exactly bowled over by Shuffle Bots. We don’t mind a straightforward game but this was a little too simple. We won’t be getting our dancing shoes on and joining the Shuffle Bots any time soon though – I would much rather play Realistic Games’ Clockwork Mice.
