The wombat says: Remember the Flintstones? If you were a fan of this prehistoric cartoon you’ll probably enjoy Anderthals slot from Just For The Win and Microgaming. It’s a bit like the 1 Million Megaways BC slot from Iron Gaming but with even better graphics we’d say.
Your game play is based on a couple of married cave dwellers called Andy and Annie Anderthal who seem pretty happy to be living in a time before the invention of the wheel and Netflix. Imagine that!
So, the question is Wombat fans, will you scoop dino-sized wins in this primitive paradise? Let’s go back to BC times and spin the reels! (BC meaning Before Casinos of course).
Look and Feel
It doesn’t take a genius to work out that Anderthals is a short version of Neanderthals… As such Wombat fans, the backdrop to your reels are some cartoon-style smoking volcanoes, plus a load of T-Rexes that our primeval duo keep as pets! This is as good a toon slot as they get, we´d rank it up there with the Pink Elephants slot and other animated classics.
The Anderthals could easily be mistaken for Fred and Wilma in their animal-skin outfits, and the pterodactyls circling above in the intro made us chuckle. Very nice visuals indeed.
Anderthals slot has 5 reels, 4 rows and 40 pay-lines. That´s the same amount of lines you´ll see on the Druid´s Dream slot from NetEnt – we´d say they are both above average on that count.
Bets start at 10p and go up to £100 per spin. The bet level also changes the maximum jackpot, which can go from 2,219x to 11,000x your wager.
Your symbols on the reels are Annie and Andy Anderthal themselves and the game logo as your high-paying symbols, while the low-paying icons are clubs, hearts, diamonds and spades playing card suits carved in stone. The Neanderthal couple are the most lucrative icons and will bag you 32x your bet stake for 5x on a payline.
Free Spins and Bonuses
Wombat fans – on top of each of the reels, you’ll see joints of ham, whole fish, florets of broccoli and other types of food– each of which has free spins, enhanced wild or multiplier attached to it.
These cool icons (known as Feature Spots in the slot) rotate to reveal different extras on every reel spin. Land 2x of the burning torch icons on the corresponding reel and they’ll set off said features! Here’s the full list:
1x Bet or 2x Bet: Gives you a multiplier of 1x time or 2x
Expanding Wilds – Gives you Wilds that take over a whole reel.
Extra Wilds – This one speaks for itself!
Wild x2 or Wild x3 – Transforms Wilds into Wild Multipliers with a x2 or x3.
Respins: Dishes out a respin with expanding wilds, and x2 and x3 Wild Multipliers
Anderthals Free Spins: It’s 8 Free Spins for you! Although every extra free spin Feature spot will gift you another x2 – which means there are up to 18 Spins on offer. But there’s more! You’ll also be treated to expanding wilds, extra wilds and those cheeky wild multipliers on every spin.
There’s plenty of fun to be had in Anderthals slot – the graphics are awesome and the play is packed with bonuses.
Get more than 2 of the Feature Spots on any given spin and you’ll really bring home the bacon. And if you’re lucky enough to trigger the Free Spins those expanding wilds and multipliers will really put a smile on your (pork) chops!
Wombat score: 4/5
