When you think about lotto, online slot games are hardly the first thing that comes to mind. Yet software developer Playtech has found a way to merge the two together and it’s up to you to decide whether the end result was worth it at all. The graphics in Lotto Madness are pretty basic and don’t feature any of today’s 3D animations. The backdrop doesn’t have much to offer either. As you will be sure to notice, it’s just some random squiggles and bubbles on a brown-orange surface, and the symbols continue this kind of care-free vibe as well. The lower value icons display numbered balls that range from 10 to 6, and the higher value ones feature a guy with a goofy grin holding cash, champagne, and more cash.
Now onto the layout in this title which has a grid of 5 reels and 3 rows. There are also up to 20 paylines for players to place their wagers on, and therefore, you will have the freedom to select exactly how many paylines you want to play with. As the minimum number is 1, this makes for a very liberal betting range that also caters to penny players. Hence, the minimum bet is only 1p per single spin and the maximum amount you will be able to wager is a total of £200 per spin.
Lotto Madness is part of Playtech’s Dollar Ball Game, which gives players the chance to compete for the massive Progressive Jackpot. Of course, the decision on whether or not to this is completely up to you. If you feel like partaking in this exciting opportunity, you simply have to enable the respective option on the main screen. Keep in mind that this option does come at the extra cost of 50% of your stake, though.
Look out for the lotto card landing in any position, anywhere across the five reels. This is the most lucrative icon in the game and it can potentially award you up to a whopping 10,000 coins. But on top of that, this is also the game’s Wild symbol, and it will have the capability of replacing other symbols in order to complete winning combos. However, the Wild will not be able to substitute for the other special symbols, namely the Scatter and Bonus icons.
The Freespins Feature is this game’s main attraction, and in order for you to trigger it you will have to land the Bonus symbol on reels 1 and 5 simultaneously. This will then take you to a new screen where you will have to spin a Wheel of Fortune, and this will determine the number of freespins that you will receive. Furthermore, the Wheel can also award you a certain multiplier that will be valid throughout the duration of the freespins.
To top it off, you can even retrigger the feature by landing the Bonus symbol on reels 1 and 5 again. This will land you another go at the Wheel of Fortune for even more freespins.
Lotto Madness may not be the best looking of slot games, and it certainly isn’t the most sophisticated either, but we have to admit that the Freespins Feature is a slightly more exciting one than what you would normally get. There’s also the very attractive RTP to consider, as well as the prospect of winning the Progressive.
