Pints and Pounds Pub Feel
This slot has a cosy welcoming feel to it. Set in an Irish pub where everyone knows your name, the background to the reels is the bar itself. The reels themselves are colourful and nicely laid out with clear, easy to see information. Everyone is this pub is smiling; perhaps it’s all the beer.
Symbols found on the reels start with the basic deck of cards, namely 9 to Ace. These have not had a whole lot of work done to them, but they do animate and jump around drunkenly if they form part of a winning combination. The rest of the symbols are what you would expect to find in a pub. There are overflowing pint glasses, buxom bar wenches, the bartender and a few other special symbols.
Pints and Pounds Specials and Bonuses
The first special symbol in Pints and Pounds is the wild symbol. This is represented by the games logo, and can appear on reels three, four and five. This symbol substitutes for all other symbols in the game, except for the scatters. This means that it can create new winning combinations and greatly increase the player’s chances at winning big.
The scatters in this game are interesting. There are three of them, Fish, Chips and Beer. These are found across the reels, each one on its own reel. Fish is only found on reel 2, Chips on reel 3 and Beer on reel 4. Should a player find all three of these scatters on their respective reels, the Pub and Grub bonus game is launched.
