With a title like Swindle All the Way, you know this RTG slot is going to be on the wrong side of the law. But it also bares similarities to the song “Jingle Bells”, which is why this slot also has a Christmas theme behind it. It’s one of the newer games from RTG, so the graphics that are in operation throughout the game are very high-quality additions.
The background of Swindle All the Way features a snowy scene, with Christmas lights dangling from a barren tree. Then, upon the reels of the game the symbols begin with Christmas-themed playing card additions which run from 9 through to A. There’s also a newspaper article about escaped thieves, and another of a glass of milk with a cookie. The stocking is also a symbol on the reels. Then comes the bag of loot and, finally, the guard dog who is ready to chase the robbers away.
The overall setup of Swindle All the Way features five reels and three rows in total. RTG has also taken the chance to add a set of 25 pay lines and you have the opportunity to customise these with the relevant up and down buttons. There’s a second set of these to change the value of the bet that you bring into play. These give you the ability to select from wagers between 25p and £2.50 per spin.
If you take a look at the top-right corner of the slot, you’ll see two progressive jackpots. These are the Minor Jackpot and Major Jackpot, and the totals of these will increase every time someone places a bet on Swindle All the Way. You don’t need to do anything special to be able to win one of them. Simply keep spinning the reels of the game and the progressives are paid out completely at random. This means that you could win such at the conclusion of any standard base game spin.
So, where are these escaped thieves that are running loose at Christmastime? Well, they will appear on the reels of this slot game as it happens, and they’ll also operate as a wild symbol in the process. This means that they can substitute for all of the other symbols in the slot, with the exception of the scatter symbol. Therefore, they can be very helpful when it comes to creating winning combinations.
Five of them appearing on a winning pay line will reward you with a pay-out of 2,500x your in-play stake.
If you see the logo of Swindle All the Way as a symbol on the reels, it is this one that works as its scatter addition. Scatters have the possibility of appearing anywhere on the reels and still rewarding you with a pay-out even if they are not on a winning pay line. Five of this one showing up will multiply your wager by 250x over.
Free Games Feature – You’ll need to ensure that three or more of the scatter symbols show up on the reels before the free spins round is triggered. Prior to this, you’ll go through a pick and click round, and this shows a set of windows on the reels. Two robbers are hiding on each reel set and you get a single chance to find them if 3 scatters triggered the round, and two picks if four or five scatters activated it. The more scatters that activated the free spins round and the more robbers you find prior to it taking place, the higher the number of free spins and your feature multiplier will be. You’re able to earn up to 60 free spins and a multiplier of up to 33x here.
Swindle All the Way is a great merger of the robbers theme with the Christmas theme, and it’s a well-known fact that many thieves take aim in the festive season so it’s accurate too – just watch Home Alone. RTG has incorporated some wonderful graphics to boost the game’s appeal, whilst also ensuring it’s thoroughly entertaining with the special features that it contains.
