Andre the Giant Online Slot Game is all about the famous wrestler himself, whether or not you’re a wrestling fan, if you are a certain age then you’re sure to remember Andre the Giant. Not only did the 7’4” Frenchman entertain us in the ring, he also made memorable appearances in a number of films including 1987 classic The Princess Bride. And now the famous wrestler has been given his very own video slot game.
Produced by Microgaming, Andre the Giant sets aside Andre’s acting and focuses on his wresting career. The background takes the shape of a traditional wrestling ring while the soundtrack evokes all the excitement of time spent watching grown men fling each other around. Symbols take their cue from spectators as well as participants with icons including giant fingers, hot dogs and tickets as well as rings, referees, masks and title belts.
The imposing figure of Andre himself acts as the Wild Symbol. In this slot the wild can only appear in the second and fourth reels. However, being a giant, when Andre does show up he can expand to cover the entire reel, obviously giving players more chances at a win. The wild substitutes for all symbols other than the scatter and the bonus icon.
The Andre the Giant logo acts as the Scatter Symbol. Three or more of these triggers the Battle Bout Bonus round.
Battle Bout Bonus
Players are awarded 10 free spins when the Battle Bout Bonus round is activated. During these spins players can collect Special Attack wrestling moves and cash prizes. Once all 10 spins are complete players are taken into the ring for a wrestling match. You get to choose from three opponents and you can use the Special Attack moves you’ve collected on your free spins against your rival. Each successful attack results in a win and three victorious attacks activate Andre’s Finishing Move, which rewards players with a bonus prize.
Andre the Giant is a must for all wrestling fans. The graphics and soundtrack work well together to create an exciting atmosphere reminiscent of the days the real Andre the Giant was at the top of his game. The Battle Bonus Round is a cool feature and offers something a little different to other slots.
