Classic slots making a comeback with Swipe and Roll, new from NetEnt.
Lovers of retro-style slot machines got a throwback this week from leading online gambling software development firm, NetEnt. The company released its newest online slots machine, called Swipe and Roll, and it’s got all the making of a classic fruit machine.
The new Swipe and Roll Slot features all the traditional bells and whistles—or rather, bells and fruits—to give players a classic 1950’s, Americana gaming experience. It comes with an average online slots RTP of 96.35% and an exceptional max payout of 1.62mm coins.
Swipe and Roll Slot, New from NetEnt
Built on a standard 5×3 reel set, this fruit machine features 20 pay lines and many of the symbols you would expect from a classic slots game. They include diamonds, gold bells, watermelons, oranges, plums, and just three playing card values of A, K and Q. Having fewer symbols overall—a total of 8—means a higher chance of lining up winning combinations.
The diamond is the wild, taking the place of any other symbol, except scatters. Wilds can appear as normal diamonds, or 3x diamonds. Normal diamonds can land on any reel, while 3x diamonds are restricted to reels 2, 3 and 4. A 3x diamond will pay any winning combinations it helps to create with a 3x multiplier, and if more than one appears in a winning combination, the multipliers will stack for a max 27x multiplier.
Following any winning spin that includes the use of a wild, the player is treated to a free Wild Re-Spin. All wilds on the screen will hold in place as the other symbols are spun again. The odds of landing additional 3x wilds is higher during Wild Re-Spins.
Bonus Features go Beyond Classic Fruit Machines
The golden bell is the Scatter symbol in Swipe and Roll. They can appear on any reel during the base game. If three or more bells appear in a single spin, it triggers the Bonus Game. The screen fades and returns with a classic 3-reel set-up. Players are instructed to “swipe” the first reel up or down, setting it in motion. The player will then swipe the second and third reels in the same fashion.
The symbols on the reels during the bonus game include numbers, ranging from 20 to 1000, as well as arrows that can point up, down, or both up and down. If a reel lands on a number, that many instant credits are awarded. If it lands on an arrow, the highlighted section will expand in that direction over all reels, paying any totals within the highlighted space from each reel.
Another feature, which can activate at random after the reels are set in motion, is called the Coin Wheel. This feature is played just like the scatter bonus game, except there’s just one reel to spin. Symbols include instant prizes of 20 to 1000 coins, and arrows to push the highlighted (winning) space up, down, or both.
You can find this and other games new from NetEnt at all gambling sites that support the brand’s extensive suite of online casino games. Swipe and Roll is compatible with all major desktop and laptop operating systems. You can also enjoy the Swipe and Roll Touch edition on iOS and Android mobile devices.
