We do enjoy graphically rich, feature heavy slots but sometimes we have to scratch the classic fruit machine itch – players can do that at William Hill Casino courtesy of the decidedly old school Jackpot Bells which has just arrived at the site.
Powered by Playtech, Jackpot Bells is a super simple fruit machine re-boot. Played using a 5 reel, 5 payline game engine, it’s as stripped back a game as you’ll find anywhere. It does offer a shot at landing a bumper progressive jackpot prize though.
The design features many classic fruity favourites – they include cherries, lemons, oranges and plums. More rewarding still are the grapes and melons which offer awards of up 100 and 250 coins per payline. Comfortably the best standard symbol is the lucky 7 which awards 1,500 coins if you land 5 on a payline.
Boosting your chances of creating a winning combination is the bell which is the wild – it expands to turn the whole of the reels wild whenever it hits. The bell is also the key to landing the game’s main prize – fill the reels with 5 stacked wilds and you’ll trigger the progressive jackpot prize.
That’s pretty much your lot when it comes to features. If you’re a fan of elaborately staged action, sweeping orchestral backing tracks and lush HD visuals then you’d be advised to look elsewhere. If you’re a fan of simple, fruity action that can still deliver a potentially knockout payout punch then Jackpot Bells should do the job nicely.
It certainly won’t be for everyone but if you’re after some retro flavoured frills and a change of pace from your usual play then Jackpot Bells offers just that.
If you’re new to William Hill Casino, you can take advantage of a chunky welcome package – make a first deposit and it will be matched 100% up to £300. That means you can get £300 free (for example) if you deposited £300.
