This Wombat has fond memories of twanging a guitar and playing a digeridoo badly in my school days with the “Vegemite Vampires” so I can totally relate to the teen fantasy of starting a rock band. The Smashing Biscuit slot is a game that takes us in a time machine back to my young joey days. This game is still pretty traditional compared to something like the Battle Mania slot, but let’s just say it’s short on cherries and melons.
The band, The Smashing Biscuit, is taking over their grumpy Dad’s garage in their first stage in achieving global rock domination. This game pits these future rock gods against their grouchy father and entry into a career making battle of the band competition. Let’s rock!
This musical treat from Pear Fiction Studios tempts you with a 500x your wager win potential on each spin, now that’s good for gaming too.
Look and Feel
Pear Fiction Studios have clearly had a blast making The Smashing Biscuit Slot. The reels are filled with teen rock styling and animations of the band in action which had this long haired dude rocking out in my dressing gown with my tennis racquet plugged in on volume 11.
The graphics and animation are the standout features of this original number. Watch out guys, you not just trying to win, you’re on a one way ticket to Wembley Arena and rock stardom too. This game is brighter than Core Gaming’s Candy Grab slot – well not quite, but put your sunglasses on!
The game has two different locations: the base game has the band plugging away against the background of a dusty garage. Then, once you enter the bonus game and the band has a chance at the big time, your game moves onto the competition stage. Let’s make it tight guys!
Make sure you take time to bang your head to the game’s blaring soundtrack, Smashing Biscuits first hit record, for sure.
The Smashing Biscuit Slot Game Play
Party on, dudes- this game is 3 rows, 5 reels and 20 paylines of a teen garage band odyssey. The double the number of lines you’ll find on Playson’s Book of Gold Classic slot.
Tiny, Crunchy and Soggy Biscuit are the three band members and the mid-value symbols, with Tiny leading the value pack. Each band member sports a dubious haircut and some great rock attitude. There’s also the peeved Dad in specs who has a role to play too. These icons all change to items showing the band’s success in the bonus game. When the band makes it big, the characters are swapped for the vital contract, band t-shirts, a debut record and a battle of the bands trophy.
The standard Ace through 10 of the card deck make the lower value icons. In the bonus game these icons are pimped up and are cleverly stamped onto different coloured guitars with symbols for some extra rockin’ kudos.
“Wild” is stamped on a golden crate and turns up on all but the third reel. The Wild subs for all other icons except the Battle of the Bands Scatter.
Dad Bonus At random during the base game, the long-suffering Dad will suddenly walk onto the reels. You’ll see he’s grasping a cuppa and remote control, which he hopes will reduce the volume of the musical geniuses. The long suffering parent arrives, and instead of turning the volume down, he pushes the multiplier up. Dude!
Now the Dad can accidentally give you a nifty multiplier between x 1 and x11. This tea sipping guy in stay pressed trousers is your secret weapon Wombat Fans!
Land a trio of Scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5 and you’ll enter the Free Spins feature.
You’re now on a new background and reel set with one less reel. You’ll get 11 free games during which up to 4 Wilds may appear to the reels to make you more dosh and give you a guaranteed win. Rock ‘n Roll!
There’s no two ways about it, the Smashing Biscuit slot is something totally different, a truly original game. The game’s styling is a slice of 90s rock finery and the music is the cherry on the game’s cake. Who can argue with 11 Free Spins and an x11 Multiplier? It’s one louder than 10 dudes!
Rock out Wombat Fans, it’s time we took the reels by storm!
