Unfortunately, Andre the Giant is no longer available to play for real at Wombat Casino. Have you tried Valhalla or Dracula?
The wombat says: If you know your headlocks from your beatdowns then you’ll probably also have heard wrestling legend Andre The Giant and his high-octane domination of the ring. Now you can meet this enormous luchdaor and slug it out face-to-face on the reels in this big ring game from NextGen, famous for their Doctor Love slot, James Dean Games and foxy fruities.
At the peak of his fame this gigantic bloke (6 ft 11’ is pretty big to this wombat!) was feted around the world for his wrestling prowess. So will this wombat end up face down on the mat? Or will this slot have us lifting the winners belt? Let’s climb into the ring!
Look and Feel
The sweat and spandex of the ringside hits you as soon as you fire up slot. The reels are set against a backdrop of a packed arena with lights dimmed and a silhouetted audience on their feet for the main event – plus there’s a rollicking good metal soundtrack that ramps up the atmosphere. The graphics aren’t the best we’ve seen (head to the Leagues of Fortune slot machine for a knock-out punch on that score), but looks aren’t everything…
Andre the Giant has 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 pay-lines – a tad more than the Cherry Blossoms slot which is also from NextGen.
Your reels are made up of wrestling icons that include; a striped referee delivering his verdict, a full-faced wrestling mask, a pair of wrestling boots, a huge golden winner’s belt, the mandatory hot dog (a personal fave of this snack-loving Wombat), a ringside chair, ticket stubs, a scary opponent and a green foam finger to wave from the crowd, and a wrestling ring and ropes.
The Wild in this slot is the massive figure of Andre, ready to spring up at any time on reels 2 and 4 where he will do the usual Wild job of substituting for all other icons except for the Scatter. And speaking of which, the Scatter is Andre The Giant logo. If you want to see Andre’s inner winner in action, then just wait until you set off the Andre Goes Wild feature! When this happens Andre stretches to cover all three row positions – which must be the reason why they call him a giant!
Battle Bout Bonus Free Spins
You can set off this spandex-pinging extra Wombat fans, by landing 3x or more of the Andre Scatters anywhere on the reels – and when you do, you’ll scoop a sweet 10 free games.
But there’s more… the wrestling aficionados among you will love this – as you collect some very special Attack Moves during the Free Spins that will land on reel 5 during your match. These winning attacks will also trigger off Andre’s Winning Move bonus, where more chunky cash prizes will be yours… We are big fans of this feature, and it really did gave us some boot stomping good fun!
If you love the WWF, and are a big fan of Andre’s, then this is a game that will deliver you some thrills. The fun (and lucrative) bonus feature lands all the right punches, and despite the shoddy graphics, make it worth climbing into the ring for. Overall a good little slot!
