A bicycle kick is a very exciting and impressive part of soccer, and the title Bicicleta captures that. Yggdrasil has put together a very visually impressive game with this slot while incorporating aspects of the sport itself as well. These elements combine to give players an exciting experience overall without losing the soccer or slot elements at any point, something many other sports-based slots are very much guilty of doing. This is a solid game even if you're not a fan of this particular sport, which should be the ultimate goal for slots like this.
Format and Layout
Players have a somewhat atypical format with this game. There are five reels and four rows, which is common enough, but there are 25 paylines. In fact, we can't remember having ever seen a 5x4 game that uses 25 paylines before, so that's worth pointing out. Coin sizes vary from $0.01 apiece to $4.00 each, the latter of which might seem a little odd until you realize this gives the game a very even $100 maximum bet per spin. The minimum wager per spin is $0.25, which is small enough for even penny players to be comfortable.
Free Spins Feature
The free spins feature is the centerpiece of the Bicicleta slot, and it's a particularly involved feature. To start with, you can win free spins with three or more of the scattered soccer ball symbol anywhere on the reels. Three awards eight free spins, four gives you 16 free spins and five pays 24 free spins. However, there's another way to get free spins as well, and that's if you get the trophy symbol on the fifth reel. This will give you between eight and 12 free turns along with an instant win worth up to 1,000x. Additionally, a trophy landed there during the free spins will add between two and four extra free spins to your total while also giving you up to 1,000x in an instant win. However, it also triggers the Wild Reel feature.
Wild symbols are really important during the free spins because they become sticky. Any wild you land will stay in place for the remaining duration of the feature. What's more is that you can get the Wild Reel feature, referenced above, which will turn one of the first four reels completely wild. Get this, and they will all stay wild for the rest of the free spins as well, which means a tremendous amount of added value. On top of all of this, any player symbol that lands has a chance to turn into a sticky wild as well during the free spins.
Player Symbols and Payouts
There are four player symbols in this Yggdrasil production, and they are responsible for the four top pays, other than the instant wins given from the trophy symbol. Five of the red player pays 250x, and five of the purple gives you a win worth 225x. You can get 200x for five of the green player, and five of the blue pays you 175x. These are some pretty good pays considering you can get them over and over again in the free spins thanks to all of the wild features.
The lower four symbols are the four card suits that have been redesigned to look like soccer balls. These might be the best renditions of the four suits that we have ever seen in an online slot, and if they're not, then they're right up there with the best of them. Five of the red heart pays 80x, and five of the purple spade gives you a 70x win. You can also pick up a smooth 60x with five of the green club, and five of the blue diamond pays players 50x.
It's important to note that both the upper and lower portions of the pay schedule are very flat in terms of how they pays are distributed. This is an important part of the gameplay since it lowers the volatility, but the trophy symbol and free spins feature still allows you to win some pretty big payout in spite of it.
Bicicleta is a good example of a sports slot done in a way that isn't lazy or plain at all, a trap that many sports-based slots fall into. This game is designed extremely well with a value-packed bonus feature and a very enjoyable style of gameplay with a low volatility and a high hit-rate. This is one slot that players will definitely get a lot of, even if they aren't fans of soccer, which is the ideal for sports-based slots. Overall, we think Yggdrasil did a great job with this game, and we think it's one of the best-looking sports-based online slots that we have seen in quite a while.
