SlotBeats goes looney as AvatarUX zaps the competition to claim SOTW
AvatarUX has burst the bubbles of its competitors as it presented SlotBeats with a concoction of crazy cartoon characters in its latest release, LooneyPop, which used a combination of proprietary mechanics to claim our Slot of the Week prize.
As a 5×3 reel slot that has up to 118,098 ways to win, LooneyPop combines AvatarUX’s well-known PopWins mechanic with ZapReel, a top horizontal reel that places an abundance of features on the reels below.
The slot uses high volatility with an RTP of 96 per cent while offering a maximum win of up to x50,000 the player’s stake.
Nicola Longmuir, CEO of AvatarUX, stated: “LooneyPop introduces a fun cartoon theme with colourful characters and a brand new immersive mechanic – ZapReel, offering a truly unique gaming experience. We strive to combine bold,engaging mechanics and themes in all our titles, and this is evident once again with LooneyPop.”
The PopWins mechanic sees symbols in a winning combination pop to be replaced by two new symbols, increasing the size of the reels that the win occurs in with a maximum reel size of 5×6.
In LooneyPop, achieving enough wins to make all reels expand to six symbols high will trigger the free spins feature. In this bonus game mode, the free spins begin on a 5×6 reel set with the ability to reach up to nine symbols high when more PopWins are formed.
Between each spin in the free spins game mode, the reel set will not reconfigure to a 5×6 size but instead will reset down to the shortest reel height available.
Before playing out the free spins, players can increase the number of free spins awarded by spinning a gamble wheel and landing the wheel marker in a winning zone. The starting amount of free spins is six, but players can repeat the gamble to gain additional three spins.
On each base game spin, the ZapReel will display special features to enhance each base game spin, including x2 and x3 multipliers, synced reel symbols causing two reels to have identical symbols and expanding winning symbols that cover entire reels with any symbols that contribute to a win on that reel.
