Black Widow Review
IGT came up with the idea of making this interesting slot game, where the main character is a woman also known as the Black Widow, whose seductive skills and scheming nature aim at, well, not so cautious males. Throughout history, there have been reported numerous crimes involving women who had their lovers or husbands murdered in order to enrich themselves. This is the perfect slot game for all those who like crime stories – no spiders involved.
Black Widow is a five reel and forty payline slot game with a beautiful gothic background, mysterious characters and touch of enigma. Spider webs that hang above the reels make the entire story even more spooky and act as a reminder of just how cautious one ought to be. The lower value symbols are represented with standard letters such as J, Q, K, A and number 10, but the higher value symbols are three potential victims and naturally the black widow herself. The logo represents the wild, which pays out the highest game prize.
There is a mini-game which triggers free spins, but to do this one must land green poison symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4. The idea of this feature is to capture any of the characters on the third reel so that the multiplier could increase the line bet. Since all 40 paylines are fixed, there‘s no room for any extra advice, except maybe to go slow and keep your eyes on the money. To spice things up, IGT made a Super Stacks feature, which allows one of the symbols to randomly get picked in order to cover all positions on one reel.
As with many things in life, especially video slots, once you find the one you like you’ll always want to play similar games. Black Widow is a great slot which is fun to play and interesting to watch. It doesn’t involve any spiders, if that is what you first thought. The sounds in this game totally correspond to its graphics, which adds to the overall impression, so feel free to try it and test your strengths – both as a player and a man. Just make sure to capture the free spins early, since it’s really hard to stay ahead of the game with fixed reels. The mobile version is also available and although it needs some improvements it’s worth giving it a go.
