Stands are full, the referees are in their places, players have just finished their warmup and everything is ready for kick-off in Bicicletas slot. Football fans from all around the world will have the chance to enjoy the skills of masters of the game, while the bicicleta shots will cause some ecstatic applause from the audience!
Yggdrasil Gaming decided to dedicate on of their products to the Euro 2016 in France, because everything is revolving around football this summer. The biggest difference between the Euro 2016 and Yggdrasil product is that in Bicicletas slot everyone will lift the Trophy and claim one of the awards offered by it.
Yggdrasil Gaming is a software development company founded in 2013, with headquarters in Malta and mayor development office in Krakow.
Being only three years old, the company is well aware it is not among the biggest providers in the business, but is swiftly becoming one of the best, due to top-notch graphics, action-packed games and a number of launched innovations, such as iSENSE 2.0, an HTML5 framework, which allow users to launch their products on a wide range of devices.
How To Play It
The 2016 release houses some neat graphics and interesting soundtrack. Four different football players are used as high-value symbols, while other four symbols are card suits decorated with football elements, which was a bit disappointing, at least for us, since we expected some authentic symbols instead. There is also a Wild symbol that substitutes all other symbols except Football Free Spins Scatter and Trophy Symbol.
Bicicletas is a five-reel slot with 25 fixed paylines paying from left to right. Coin value goes from $0.01 up to $4, meaning the minimum bet you can wager is $0.25, while the maximum stake is $100. Gameplay is easy as 1, 2, 3, because all you need to do is set the coin value and start spinning the reels.
If you just want to sit back and leave the machine do all the work, Autoplay offers countless spins, but do take great care when picking this option, because you may end offside pretty soon and finish the game with nil on your balance.
Free Spins mode is where things become really interesting and this is where you will have the chance to witness some of the greatest bicicletas. Three or more Free Spins Scatters trigger the feature awarding you with 8, 16 or 25 free spins, depending on the number of Scatters landed on the reels.
During Free Spins every player that lands on the reel will test the goalkeeper’s skills and try to score a goal. All of them who succeed will turn into a Sticky Wild that will remain locked in the position during the feature, creating more possibilities for winning combinations, so do hope that the goalie is not very good in saving his net.
The Trophy symbol appears only on reel 5 and may award gamers with up to 1,000 coins or up to 12 free spins in base game, while in Free Spins mode you can win up to 4 free spins, 1,000 coins or the Wild Reel feature. This feature will turn a randomly chosen reel into Sticky Wilds during free spins. The interesting thing is that the Trophy symbol appears often enough, bringing some decent payouts.
The player in a red shirt, that reminds us a bit of Cristiano Ronaldo, is the highest paying symbol in the base game, offering 250 coins for five of a kind.
The Trophy symbol from reel five can award you with 1,000 coins instantly, which means gamers can get up to $4,000 from a single spin. Thanks to the Free Spin feature and bunch of Sticky Wilds that appear, chances are your winnings will go through the roof.
Football-themed slots got a very good reinforcement in their squad with the Yggdrasil Gaming title. This game will certainly meet the demands of football fanatics worldwide, due to nicely done graphics and a stadium-like atmosphere with stands full of fans cheering for your team.
We have to admit that the bonus features are very rewarding once you manage to trigger them; winning combinations are landed rather often, as well as the Trophy symbol on reel 5.
However, we would recommend gamers to take great care when choosing the Autoplay, especially if they like to place big bets, since the football players in the slot might go on a barren run if left unattended and suck your balance dry sooner than you think.
