Australia is known for their love of video slots, which they call pokies (short for video poker machines, which later also came to refer to video slot machines). Because of that, it's completely appropriate and fitting for Lightning Box Games to have made their RedRoo slot. This game centers around an Australian theme, and it has a style of drawn graphics that fits the concept very well. This is a very high hit-rate game, and the volatility is at a low-to-medium level.
To keep the action as fast as possible, this game uses a format that gives you tons of ways to win on every single spin. With five reels, three rows and the all-ways format, you'll have 1,024 ways to win on the reels each spin, and that means some serious opportunities to run up multi-line pays. Betting is set up based on wagering 40 coins per spin, and you can choose coin sizes that start as low as $0.01. They go up to $7 on the high side, so the total betting range goes from $0.40 to a somewhat atypical $280 per turn at the maximum level.
Wild Rock Mesa Symbol
The wild symbol in this game is the rock mesa. It appears on the second, third and fourth reels only, and that means that it does not get its own payouts. However, it will substitute for anything in the game except for the Australia symbol, and considering how much value wilds add to all-ways slots, we can't really complain. If you get a couple of these on the reels at the same time, you really open the door to a tremendous number of payouts on the same spin, which is where you'll get a lot of value in your sessions in general.
Scattered Australia Symbols
The Australia symbols show up on every reel, and they act as a scatter. This means you can win with them even if they don't line up on consecutive reels from left to right. Five of a kind of this symbol gives a very strong 800x payout, and you can also win 400x for four of a kind anywhere on the game's reels. Three gets you a 80x win, which isn't bad either. While this symbol offers payouts, it also triggers a bonus feature.
Free Spins Bonus Round
Three or more of the scattered Australia symbol will award you free spins. Three of them gets you eight free turns, and four wins 15. A total of 20 free spins is yours for five of this symbol anywhere on the reels. There are two main goodies that you get during the free spins that add a lot of value to the feature.
The first is that if you get two or more of the Australia symbols during this round, you'll get five extra free spins added to your total. Second, the wild symbols become 3x wild multipliers during this bonus feature. What's more is that they stack multipliers, so two of them in a winning combination gives a multiplier of 9x, and three gives a tremendous multiplier of 27x.
The kangaroo symbol offers up some pretty good wins with 250x for five of a kind, 200x for four and 150x for three. You can also win 50x for just two of a kind of this symbol, and it's clear that these wins are here to give you some major value.
The man and the woman symbol each give the same payouts with 200x for five and 150x for four. You can also score 150x for five of 100x for four of a kind with five of the pink birds or dog holding a stick. All five of these symbols pay for two of a kind or more.
Finally, you have the A and K symbols. Each of them pay 140x for five of a kind. Moving further down the pay table, five of the purple Q or green J symbols will get you a 120x win, and five of the orange 10 pays 100x. At the bottom end of the pay table, the yellow 9 symbols pay 100x for five, but they also pay for two of a kind or more. The rest of the card rank symbols A-10 require at least three of a kind for a payout.
RedRoo is a slot by Lightning Box Games that definitely focuses on fast-paced action. It has an extremely balanced pay table with tons of mid-range pays, but it also gives you opportunities win tremendous prizes in the free spins feature with multipliers of 3x, 9x and even 27x available through the wild symbols. This game as a whole has average to above-average graphics, but the gameplay is very solid for players who like high hit-rate and low-volatility play. It's not exactly award-winning material, but it definitely has its place among games with this particular gameplay style.
