Easy Slider Review
Motorheads everywhere, this ones for you! This NextGen’s installment is answering the prayers of those who were hoping for a gritty, biker themed slot game of fiery engines and foxy two-wheeling ladies. It also adds up a whole new dimension to video slot gaming with cool, nifty innovations like Slide Wild and good old stacked wilds. Such a gameplay allows you to be in control of what you’re winning and how you’re doing it. With this game, the producers are finally giving big shots in this industry a good run for their money – and some healthy competition is always a welcome thing.
Despite this being, on paper, a low-volatility game, Easy Slider’s lucrativeness largely depends on the player, perhaps more so than on most other slot games. Sure, you will win small much more often than you’ll win big, but strategy, luck and patience can mean a great deal here, in this five reels twenty-five paylines game. Besides the usual low-end symbols, there are four main ones: a pair of sunglasses, a helmet, fiery bike and a devil’s patch. The cool biker girl is a wild (and she does look that) while a burning tire, a scatter, brings up the Free Spins feature (more on that in a short while).
The very distinctive and visually rigorous theme of bike riding somewhere on deserted, dusty roads of mid-West demands a high level of attention to familiar details and backdrops. In the background, you may notice a powerful engine, revving and pulsing whenever something significant happens on the reels. The symbols, set against black tiles, do come alive with flaming animations not and again and particularly attractive is a biker girl that will slide and skid around once you land a wild symbol in the right place. The rock and roll dimension is enhanced via a simple guitar riff each time you spin the reels, which does get a bit annoying after a while, but oh well. The feel of wind running through your hair as you ride your Harley Davidson is there, for sure.
See that little movement on top of the reels? Seems like a bike on fire, doesn’t it? Well, it is – and this is what it does: you can control it and slide it across the reels and choose to park it atop of a reel to expand wilds and enhance multipliers! The multipliers increase as you move from left to right, starting from 2x to 6x in the base game, or 4x to 12x in free spin mode.
Speaking of free spins are not won easily and you’ll have to do a fine share of spinning before finally catching up with them. But when you do, you’ll be glad you were patient. You get fifteen free spins for three or more scatter symbols landed, and what’s more, they operate with double multipliers.
Easy Slider has won our hearts, with its consistency and solid gameplay, just the right amount of mystery to it and competitive graphics. The only thing that now remains is to find that lonely highway and…ride down that route.
