Ace of Spades
When I first heard about the Ace of Spades slot from Play ‘n Go, my first thought was Lemmy, you know the late frontman of Motörhead, but then I fired it up and, well, I couldn´t have been further from the mark.
The Ace of Spades slot is for you traditionalists out there. It´s a 3 reel slot with one pay-line, and the symbols “thunk” in, just like the good ‘ol days down the boozer. If that’s not enough for you, then we’d recommend the Visitors slot from ELK. That’s got 5 reels, 5 rows and 3125 Ways to Win.
And if you want to blast your brains out with Lemmy on bass, you could load up the Motorhead slot from NetEnt and set the volume dial to 11. Take yer pick!
Let’s get back to the Ace of Spades shall we?
Look and Feel
Like we said, this is old skool, so don´t go expecting any whizzy graphics! This is a real man’s and woman’s fruity Wombat Fans. None of your fancy animations here!
I do like the arcade sound effects in the background! I can imagine ol´ Grandma Wynona Wombat perched up next to me with her purple fur rinse feeding the machines. You should hear her language when she’s spinning those reels. Shocking.
Let’s face it, this isn´t going to take us long, but that´s the beauty of the Ace of Spades slot. It´s as simple as they come.
That one pay-line runs through the middle of the 3 reels. Choose your coin value and the number of coins you want to bet and off you go! The pay table is displayed handily to the right of the action and of course you´ll see the chunky wins if you bet 3 coins.
Look out for the 4 leaf clovers. You’ll win 6 coins if one shows up and 15 for 2. 3 will net you 30 coins.
After that you are after 3 Jacks, 3 Queens, 3 Kings, 3 Crowns or 3 Ace of Spades. If you land 3 Ace of Spades on the pay-line, you really are an Ace because that will net you 2500 coins. Woo hoo!
The Ace of Spades is Wild Just Like Lemmy
The Ace of Spades is a wild that matches any other symbol on the pay-line and one wild doubles the winning combination. 2 wilds on the pay-line pays out 4x the winning combination.
Just like most Play ‘n Go games, you can customise the settings on the Play ‘n Go slot if you want to. Turn the sound on and off, auto adjust the bet, select Fast Play if you like or disable the “Spacebar to Spin” option (we quite like that feature). Go crazy!
There’s also a powerful auto spin options panel where you can dial in up to 100 spins which you can program to stop on any win if you want to (I always do this so that I can wallow in my winnings). Or you can program the auto function to stop after a certain sized win, or if your balance increases by a certain amount (like a take profit stop) or if it decreases by a certain amount (like a stop loss). I’d recommend using these features if you go “Auto”. Why not?
The Ace of Spades slot is not going to win any innovation awards, but it is a solid, traditional 3 reeler. There’s something comforting about playing an Old Skool game.
Wombat Score: 3.5 / 5
- What is the best symbol?
The Ace of Spades of course! This symbol is wild and if you land 3 on the single pay-line on a 3 coin bet you will bag 2500 coins.
