The wombat says: So what’s this slot’s all about? Well, the clue’s in the title Wombat fans. Nuptials are the name of the game in this new NetEnt release – but not just any wedding – we’re talking a Chinese-style ceremony full of lucky packets.
Aside from working out the identity of this mysterious bride, this slot will keep you busy with its bonus game sticky wilds and a 2x multiplier.
So it’s time to get suited and booted – we’re off to a wedding. And don’t forget the confetti. We are talking one step further then the Tweethearts slot in other words.
Look and Feel
Who’s The Bride? slot is set in an opulent room with a red stage, traditional Chinese lanterns and some heavy curtains. As is standard with Far Eastern-themed games, there’s also a whole load of gold and red decorating the reels – which are auspicious Chinese colours. Thankfully, both hues suit this wombat down to the ground… The colours remind me of the Golden Ticket slot, but of course the theme is somewhat different.
The visuals are simple but nicely done and your soundtrack is a plinky traditional Chinese-style ditty. All very sophisticated.
Wombat fans: try and scoop a wedding list full of wins over 5 reels, 3 rows and 9 pay-lines. That’s one less than the Wolf’s Bane slot machine even, which should give you an inkling of how this game plays,
Although here in Oz, you’re lucky if you get a few empty tinnies of VB tied to your car’s tow bar by your mates…
As you’ll see, the symbols on the reels are made up of the objects a Chinese bride needs on her big day, these include: an elaborate red and gold sedan chair (land 5x of these and luck out with a 1,000-coin prize), a fancy silk jewelery box with giant pearls, a pair of silk slippers and a traditional ivory necklace. Last, but not least, there’s a Chinese teapot – which is just perfect, ‘cos this wombat is gasping for a cuppa.
The Ace through 10 of the card deck makes up the lower value icons done up in fancy Chinese-style lettering.
A fluttering gold curtain conceals the face of the mysterious bride-to-be and this unusual icon is also the game’s Wild. Meanwhile, the golden ingot shaped like a dumpling is the game’s Scatter icon – and the route to the Free Spins game.
Make a win with 5x of these glitzy Scatters and you’ll fill your boots with an x 1,500 your wager. Happy days, here comes the bride!
Free Spin and Bonuses
Hit 3x or more of the Scatters and you’ll trigger the Free Spins game. Now the money could really start to roll in if your luck is in.
It’s 12 free games for you, plus any wins you make during the bonus feature have a x2 multiplier added to them. Now that’s one way to celebrate someone’s Big Day!
If you land any Wilds during the Free Spins, they will freeze in place on the reels and stay until the end of the round to help to make you extra wins. And don’t forget: if you can muster up a 5x Wild win in this mode, you’ll scoop a payout of x 3,000 your bet. Ker-double-ching!
You’ll also get 5 re-spins each time you land a Wild in the bonus game. Now I’ll definitely raise my glass to that!
Who’s the Bride? slot is a decent addition to the Chinese-themed genre. The base game is a bit slow, but set off the Spins and you’ll be dizzier than Nana Wombat on the wedding-disco dancefloor. And she’s got the moves like Mick Jagger. Take a spin now!
