The wombat says: A 1950s diner is the theme for Swipe & Roll, a retro looking new game from those slot wizards at NetEnt, those guys and gals behind the Bollywood Story slot, Jungle Jim, Gonzo’s Quest…need we go on?
Let’s enter the Wombat Time Machine, slap some Brylcream on and pay those rock ‘n’ rollers a visit.
Look and Feel
Swipe & Roll slot is set in an old school diner with an ancient-looking fruit machine in the right hand corner. This game launched about the same time as Berryburst, but that’s where the similarities end. The 1950s’ style graphics are complimented by a 50s’ rock and roll soundtrack and the reels are all done up like a jukebox. Simple but classy, just like this wombat!
But this being a NetEnt game, it still has plenty of tricks up its sleeve compared to more traditional games like the Fireworks Frenzy slot and Avalon. Read on to find out more my Wombat friends!
Swipe & Roll slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 paylines. Your symbols on the reels include old fashioned fruit machine icons: watermelons, oranges and plums, plus the Q,K & A playing cards that make up your low-value icons. The highest paying symbol in the game is the watermelon which will scoop you a cool 15x your bet if you land 5 of them on a payline.
The Diamond is the Wild symbol and will substitute for all symbols on the reels to make extra wins for you. But there’s also another wild in Swipe & Roll slot; the 3x Diamond Wild icon also substitutes for all symbols (except regular Wilds and Scatters), but it will only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. And as you’ve probably guessed, they will add a x3 multiplier to any wins that they contribute too…
The golden bell symbol is the Scatter, and will trigger off the Free Spins feature.
Free Spins and Bonus Features
There are 3 extra features up for grabs in Swipe & Roll slot:
Wild Respins feature
Landing 3x or more wilds on the same spin and you will earn you a respin. The wild symbols (both regular and the x3 Wilds) will lock in place during the extra spin. Kerching!
Coin Wheel feature
Randomly triggered, here your 5 reels will transform into 1 brand new prize wheel that will pay you out some decent instant cash wins.
Land an arrow and it will expands the win area, offering you even more prizes (wins of between 5x and 54x your bet are up for grabs in this round).
Or, if a ‘Bonus’ icon lands on the wheel, you’ll automatically set off the Bonus Game (see below) where even more cash can be won.
Bonus Game feature
You can set off the Bonus Game by landing 3x of the scatters on reels 2, 3 and 4 all on the same spin.
Next you’ll be given a new set of reels to spin (or swipe to be more exact) that reveal coin wins or arrows.
The coins wins will pay you out the corresponding amount while the arrows will make the reels expand and will also raise the height of the rows to a maximum of 5.
Swipe & Roll offers a new take on the classic fruit machine theme, and it’s pretty good one! The only thing it is missing is a free spins feature, but the re-spins make up for it. Grab your comb and hair pomade and let’s channel Danny Zuko, it’s time to hit the 1950s…
