NetEnt Delivers In New Classic Pokies Game
NetEnt’s newest creation, Swipe and Roll, pays true homage to the age-old tradition of the classic pokies machine. Swipe and Roll was officially launched on August the 7th, and is bound to stir up a lot of excitement, especially among those who love traditional style entertainment. Players at LeoVegas have been able to exclusively enjoy the game since March, and it’s now finally available in the public domain.
Swipe and Roll has been described as a combination of that old classic magic with cutting-edge modern technology and graphics. It’s the perfect marriage of innovation meets popular historical culture, and NetEnt has done a stunning job of it.
That 1950’s Magic
Back in the 1950’s, the popularity of fruit machines knew no bounds. This new pokie captures that 1950’s feel almost flawlessly by incorporating a true Americana theme. In the background, a classic casino bar filled with pokies is depicted in a way that tends to transport the player back to days gone by. As an extra special touch, 50’s Rock ‘n Roll music can be heard playing in the background as the reels are spun.
All of the old classic symbols are there too, including watermelons, oranges, plums, bells, diamonds, and of course, poker card symbols.
A Technologically Enhanced Treat
The classics may not have been renowned for boasting cutting edge best features, as the technology to include them simply wasn’t available back then. But NetEnt has incorporated a host of special features into Swipe and Roll in such a way that it in no way takes away from the old school feel of the title.
For example, the diamonds are Wild symbols. Even better, they come stacked on the reels and substitute for all other symbols, as Wilds traditionally do. But that’s not all. Whenever a Wild completes a combination of 3 or more, a multiplier is applied, with the maximum being up to 27 times the player’s bet.
Swipe and Roll also features the Coin Wheel feature, which is triggered completely at random throughout the base game. Whenever this happens, either a cash prize is awarded, or the bonus feature comes into play. The bonus feature affords players the opportunity to spin 3 reels and accumulate all the coins appearing on the reels.
Fans of classic pokies will be pleasantly surprised by NetEnt’s fantastic new creation, and for those who are looking for something simple and straightforward, this is the game to try!
