The wombat says: Knit Fast, Die Warm! That’s the motto of the hell- raising grannies in this crazy pensioner-themed slot from Microgaming- those people behind the High Society slot. This game has got a slightly different theme!
Better known for waiting at bus stops than causing havoc on motorbikes, the old ladies in this slot sport mohawks, tattoos and biker gear.
But will you live on the edge with these nasty nans and scoop some high octane wins? Let’s rev up the reels and find out!
Look and Feel
We love love love graphics in this slot! They tell the story of 3 mean-looking OAPs who are all part of the Hells Angels gang- it’s a long way from the Fruit Fiesta 5 Reel slot, one of Microgaming’s more traditional games. The reels are set inside some sort of garage hideaway, but these Hells Grannies do have a soft side, as we can see by the pastel coloured wool that that covers the both sides of the reels and your control panel.
Plus there’s the knitting needles that replace the bones in the skull and crossbones sign too! Add the heavy-metal soundtrack plus the roaring of motorbikes in the background and your badass nanas are complete. Sounds a bit mental? It is. Imagine Sons of Anarchy crossed with the Antiques Roadshow and you’ll get the idea…
This slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 25 paylines and your symbols on the reels are made up of the 4 Grannies as your high paying icons and knitted versions of the 9, 10, J, Q, K and the ‘Ace of spades, the Ace of spades’ that all represent the low value symbols. Think of the Twisted Circus slot and then add in some octogenarians!
The Hells Grannies are: the tattooted knuckles OAP, the pink bingo cap-wearing Nan with piercings, mohawk Nan with the Guns and Roses tattoo on her head, and rain bonnet Nan, who’s smoking a fag and wearing devils horns (this one is the Wombat’s personal fave).
The Wild in the game is the ‘Knit Fast Die Warm’ graffiti symbol. It does the usual job of substituting for all other symbols on the reels, and will also add a x2 multiplier to any winning combos it’s part of. Vroom vroom!
Free Spins Bonus
To start up the bonus, first you’ll need to land 3x or more of the Hells Grannies logo Scatters to set it off, which is no mean feat. It took us over 250 spins! Once you do, you’ll be taken to the ‘Spin It T0 Win’ Feature where you’ll be presented with a big old wheel to spin.
The wheel contains combos of Free Spins and Multipliers that include: 5 spins with a 2x multiplier, 10 spins with a 3x multiplier, 15 spins with a 3x multiplier, 20 spins with a 3x multiplier, and 20 spins with a 5x multiplier
Wherever it lands when the wheel stops spinning will signify how many Spins you’ll scoop and which Multiplier you’ll play with, too.
And now let the spins begin!
We’re not sure we’ve ever seen a theme as good as this one! Yes Microgaming really pushed the boat out with Hells Grannies slot. OK, the game play isn’t the most sophisticated we’ve ever seen, but the Spin It To Win it feature can be very lucrative indeed. Grab your knitting bag and get spinning Gran Fans!
Wombat Score: 4/5
Loses a point as we found it hard to trigger the bonus- could have been a bad run of luck through?
