As well, you will in all probability be treated to an hour-long monologue as to why the long-deceased Frenchman is the best thing to ever happen to the world of wrestling in particular and to humanity in general. Instantly familiar, taller than most mountains and as bulky as a super tanker, Andre The Giant bestrode the wrestling world from 1973-1992. Apart from beating up his foes in the ring he also starred in the cult classic The Princess Bride.
Since his premature death, he has been immortalised in increasingly creative ways. An online slot that pays homage to his memory is, therefore, most welcome. So, in what ways does the Andre The Giant slot tickle the pleasure-giving never centres of the brain? Let’s go and find out.
“Am Andre The Giant, I Fear No Evil”
This online slot with a heavy preponderance of wrestling-related images and items comes with five reels, three rows and a maximum of twenty-five paylines. The reels are positioned right in the middle of a wrestling ring and are in effect hanging from the ropes like a punch-drunk boxer.
Game symbols, of course, match the theme and include such items as a hot dog, event tickets, ankle-length wrestling boots, a huge fans glove, a blue mask, a chair, a wrestling ring, the moustachioed referee, a golden champion’s belt and a wrestler in a red mask.
The wild is Andre himself standing tall and proud. When practical he will expand to fill up all positions on reels two and four so as to form a winning combo. The scatter is an “Andre The Giant” logo, and it triggers the main features.
Bonuses As Huge As Andre Himself
Free Spins/Battle Bout Bonus- the free spins feature is activated whenever players land three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. These grants the player ten free spins.
But, do keep an eye on reel five. It occasionally displays Special Attack icons. These icons are gathered together during the free spins feature and are employed when the wrestling match is started.
When the wrestling match has been begun, players choose from the moves they have previously collected and saved and use these to attack their opponents. For each successful attack, the free spins remaining are boosted. For three successful attacks, Andre’s iconic finishing move that frequently made his opponents in the ring have a heart attack is activated. This gives players a bonus prize worth grinning about.
Upon the exhaustion of all special attack moves, the game is over and players are shepherded back to the screen of the base game.
Let’s Gamble, My friend
As in other slot games, you can gamble your winnings by clicking on the “Gamble” button located underneath the reels. The gamble feature can be used to either double or quadruple your winnings once you guess the right colour or suit of cards drawn. Five consecutive correct guesses only are permitted. Just one wrong guess though will see your winnings erased.
Andre The Giant is an excellently entertaining online slot you can wrestle with all day without tiring. The features and graphics are simple, but it’s so well implemented that you barely notice.
