The wombat says: We all know the old cliche, the over-fraught bride gets to the big day and proceeds to go berserk at anyone who gets in the way of the wedding going off without the slightest hitch. Yes, Bridezilla slot revolves around this theme of the truly nightmare bride and is brought to you by those slot wizards from Microgaming- the makers of the Mystic Dreams slot, Thunderstruck II, Hot as Hades and a whole bunch of other games.
Never mind Bridezilla getting the red mist, Mrs Wombat started rolling her eyes and getting steam coming out of her ears when she saw this one! Let’s get this wedding going! ‘I’m getting married in the morning etc…’
Bridezilla is a 5 reel slot with 3 rows and Microgaming’s signature 243 ways to win unlike games like the Wild Birthday Blast slot– which means that you won’t need to worry about those pesky pay-lines! Simply line up matching symbols anywhere on the reels from left to right and you’ll win. Hurrah!
Your symbols include a stressed-out groom (looking really very nervous indeed) along with the bridal car (complete with ‘Just Married’ sign stuck on the bumper), the church (which looks more like a portal to the Underworld than a wedding chapel), a wedding cake and the bridesmaids’ bouquet with a load of hands trying to grab at it. We thought it might be all pinks and pastels like the Lolly Land slot machine, but oh no, the designers had different ideas with this one!
Then there’s the standard playing card symbols; 10, J, Q, K & A that make up your low-pay out icons.
The Bride herself is Wild (quite literally), and she will substitute for the other symbols on the matrimonial reels other than the Scatter. Wild wins are also multiplied in the Free Spins bonus thanks to a nice little feature called the ‘Bridezilla Multiplier’ – that randomly pays you out anywhere from x1 to x10 of your bet.
Keep your eyes peeled for the clanging Golden Bell Scatters Wombat Fans – landing 3x or more of these tinkly beauties means that it’s Free Spins time for you! You’ll be dished out 10, 15 or 20 Free Spins depending on how many Scatters you landed in the first place.
Not a bad start eh? But things really heat up when you complete a no-win spin, here the Bride turns from the mild mannered wife-to-be into a green Hulk-like Bridezilla that vents her rage on each of the high symbols on the reels. This gives us players some extra wedding gifts in the form of multipliers, free spins, and Bridezilla multipliers.
We quite like this little feature and it’s a nice twist to your standard Free Spins round. Here’s something this wombat never thought he’d say, but you’ll be praying that the Bride gets as mad as a wasp in a beer bottle so that she can turn some of those temper tantrums into cool hard cash wins.
Aside from the slightly sexist and definitely cliched take on bridal behaviour, this Microgaming slot isn’t too bad at all. As always this wombat is a big fan of ‘243 ways to win’ slots as it saves time worrying about the pay-lines – and increases the odds of a winning combo! Sadly, we found it hard to set off the Free Spins, although base game payouts meant that the buying a new suit wasn’t a complete waste of money. Give it a spin and see what you think.
