The first question on your mind when you read the title of this Playtech slot may be what the hell is it all about? Ugga Bugga is one of the most bizarre slot titles we’ve ever come across. Ugga Bugga must be Playtech’s way of describing jungle life. Ignoring any potentially offensive connotations it’s actually quite an appealing offering on the whole. You’ll get to see scenery in the background consisting of trees, vines, and other assorted foliage, and it seems to be a night-time setting as well. The graphics are basic and nothing to really get so hyped up about, although they remain pleasing enough to the eye. On the game’s reels you will see various symbols relating to the theme. These include a couple of different jungle-style huts, bongo drums, a tribal mask, what appear to be things for eating and drinking in various bowls, as well as tribesmen with spears and shields.
All in all, there are ten sets of reels, each containing three columns. Five rows are present on each side of the game screen although all reels spin independently of each other. You make your first spin, which spins the very bottom left row. You’ll then have the option of holding one or more of the symbols in place. The next time you press spin, any icons that you haven’t held on the first row will spin again, followed by the remaining nine rows. You’re able to change your stake per round by using the plus and minus buttons on either side of the coin value shown. This changes between £0.01 and £5, so you have the chance of placing a maximum overall wager of £25 per line, or £250 per spin. The other end of the scale is 5p per line and 50p total bet.
Ugga Bugga looks like it could host a stack of special features alongside the main game, but in actuality, it doesn’t. The only extra addition that you will find on the reels is a wild symbol. This comes in the shape of the stone tribe mask. As a wild, this one is able to substitute for any other icon in the game, ensuring that it provides assistance in creating wins.
To add to this, the wild symbol of Ugga Bugga also has the potential to give the game’s highest win. If you spin three of them into view on any of the pay lines in the slot, you will receive a maximum pay-out of 1,000 coins.
This Playtech slot has a decent enough base game to play through. It’s a bit more entertaining with the ability to hold certain symbols from the first spin and carry them through to the second, but if you’re the kind of gamer who likes being able to trigger bonus games then Ugga Bugga might not be the one for you. If, on the other hand, you prefer to keep things simple, then we could totally see you having an enjoyable time spinning the reels of this one.
